Where do I begin...

Some days BEGIN early...(5 am trips to the airport)
On Friday, Jan 20, 2012 we went to the airport to say goodbye to
Elder Guevara

Elder Guevara was our first Financial Secretary in the office when we arrived. 
 Three of our original office crew have now finished their missions.
Saying goodbye is BEGINNING to get harder and harder!

2 financial secretaries...saying goodbye is hard to do!!

On Saturday we BEGAN the day
learning to make snickerdoodles.
Elders Ramirez, Rázuri, y Zuniga wanted to thank the members
for their work in finding new investigators this week.

 By Sunday we were BEGINNING to see the fruits of
hard work, faith, fasting, relying on the Lord and working hand in hand with the members.

Our incredible missionaries have completed their commitments with an overwhelming


New Investigators!!!
Now the real work BEGINS...
...as they love, teach, build testimonies, and help these investigators receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. 

I am BEGINNING to feel more Colombian.
On Monday night I had my first Sancocho...

A delicious soup with chicken, yucca, potatoe, plantain, and corn and
of course with plenty of rice on the side.

With the help of the missionaries and a ward member we BEGAN to share the gospel
with our friend Cristina and her family.
 It was also her sons birthday so we did a little Happy Birthday-ing as well.

Elders Hansen and Borg with Brother Loayza
Leonardo, Cristina, Cristina's mom (90) and Janeth
Happy Birthday Leonardo!

Here's hoping that this is the BEGINNING of a whole lot of happy for
this family and our missionaries!
