Hurry up and wait...or a day behind and a peso short...

There are just not enough hours in our days.
We wake up tired and fall into bed exhausted (and it isn't always our own bed!)
We try to keep up with all the missionary needs,
all the district needs,
all the stake invitations,
and our family far away.

We always feel like we are behind...
and thus is my excuse for not having posted on this blog for a month.

Here are a few of the things that have occurred 
(with no pictures to show for the 191 interviews that took place at an average of 15 mins a piece, in 6 diferent do the math)

A Trip to Buenaventura 
to reorganize the Branch Presidency
 a talent show
... the real beauty is in the Young Women of this branch!

 The Buenaventura Branch
 My Buenaventura Missionaries
Back:  Elders Armstrong, Didericksen, Novoa, Avalos, Martinez
Front:  Elders Musselman, Inga, Lopez

A Trip to the Tuluá District
to have District Conference
 Lunch with the Zarzal district

Well fed both physically and spiritually on this trip!!!

Finally arriving in Pasto for interviews!
This was our 2nd attempt to get to Pasto...the weather has caused us a lot of delays!

The parents got married on Friday and baptized on Saturday after this family night!!

And Family night the following week

Taking time with members, converts, investigators and missionaries
after the conference


 The members love these missionary sisters!
