Hola Familia y Amigos,
Well that didn't make me trunky at all reading about my flight itinerary since they still haven't given me the info... haha wow that makes things a lot more real.. Oh gosh. I have lots to do and little time to do it! haha It's crazy finishing the mission and trying to leave all the people you've met in a better state. Well, time to start running! ;)
So this past week here in Cochabamba was a pretty busy one. So sorry I totally forgot to mention what happened with changes last week! So Hna Bohorquez actually got changed to my area in Sucre!! and now I am with my very last companion.. Hna Llanos. She is amazing. She is from Mendoza, Argentina and is one of 6 kids. Only her and two of her siblings are members and she got baptized just a couple years ago. We are just chuggin along here in Cala Cala. ;)
This last week, we had changes and then that very day, the assistants called with great news.. Pres. wanted me and my comp to give a class in Leadership Conference a couple days later.. Well, the next day, we were booked with an appointment at every hour of the day! So each time an appointment failed, we took advantage of our time to plan our class haha. We taught about revelation through church attendance and the importance of attending. We both think it went pretty well ;) It's nice that when you are teaching a class, YOU are usualy the one who learns a lot more than those who are there listening.
We talked about the importance of the sacrament and how for members, we are renewing our covenants.. But when we teach that to our investigators, we want them to be able to take the sacrament with a perpose too even before baptism.. and the purpose is that they can start now and practice partaking of the sacred sacrament. But they are also going to be able to receive revelation a lot easier through participating in this sacred action. I mentioned a long time ago in one of my letters about how when we use our 5 senses, we tend to learn a lot faster and to remember things a lot easier.. well through taking the sacrament, we get to use all 6 senses.. we can smell, touch, see, and taste. also we hear the sacrament prayer and we can also feel the holy spirit :) I know that the sacrament cleans us every single time we take it as long as we partake of it worthily. What a blessing the Lord has given us right? I sure love the idea of being clean of my sins every single week so that I can keep on preparing to meet my savior and feel ready on that great day when we comes to reign once again as king of all kings.
So this year, the church is completing 50 years here in Bolivia!! So we had the wonderful opportunity to go to one of the big celebrations they had here with all the stakes here in Cochabamba. They all danced traditional dances which were amazing! It was very organized with a video and everything o the history of the church here. So fun. I'll send the pics!
Today as a zone, we went to paintball! Super fun! We played three rounds and my team won each time! Woohoo! haha I managed to kill two people without getting killed at all. Looks like your goin down when I get home boys.. haha or I guess in UM ;)
When we got home after painball today, it started being ssuuuper windy.. and we were just looking out over cochabamba and the air was just full of dust and the clouds were super dark. So I got a couple pics of that haha.
Well, we're looking forward to a good next week here in Cala Cala! I'll let you all know how it goes next week! LOVE YOU ALL!
