I Am Trying to Treasure the Time I Have Left

Well the time is going way to fast, but that isn't very new. Time has never been very nice to missionaries.
Well we had a pipe kinda break in our house this week and so our house kinda filled with water and we had to go to the other Elders house this week pretty much every day untill we could get it fixed. I love the mission, because there is always an adventure to be had, like sweeping up water from your apartment floor! 
But we had a hard time finding good people once again this week, although we had the help of a really cool guy named Fransisco Sierra. He is a returned missionary from Venezuela, and he was accompanying us quite a bit. We taught the Sanchez family again Yesterday, the family that we found last week, and they are pretty excited to be able to go back to church! But, unfortunatly nobody attended church this week, it has been a little hard in that aspect. 
Me and Elder Cuba have talked and we have felt like we have been getting better working together and trying hard, but the people have been somewhat hard of heart lately. However, Because my time is short I feel pretty pumped to just keep trying and doing the best that I can. We have some good people, we just gotta find some more. 
I am trying to treasure this time that i have left, and am really trying to enjoy every last moment, and I just love the mission.

My Last Multi-Zone Conference, With Girardot!

Multi zone conference.... my last one....

Hey everyone... Are we in August already!? Weird... 

This month is windy Kite flying month, so that is pretty cool, there have been a lot of kite buying this week. I remember that a year ago when I was in Casablanca the parks were full of people flying kites, cool stuff!

So this week we had a hard time finding, and the Rodriguez family told us that they thought that they were going into things too fast, and that they probably won’t be able to attend every Sunday and such things. So we are going to focus more on Leidy, who is the oldest daughter who seems to be the most interested in our message. 

I also had my last Multi-Zone Conference this week... on Friday with the Zone Girardot! And at the beginning, I had to give my last testimony. And it was a crazy thing. I can't believe that I have gotten to the point of giving my last testimony, the time has gone really fast. It was a hard thing to do, but I felt good doing it as well. I feel like it still hasn't hit me that I will be home in 4 weeks....

Elder Palma also gave his last testimony. 

And we found a new family on Sunday! Nobody attended church unfortunately, but this family that we met are awesome. They are the Sanchez family, and they live in the same apartment complex as us. We found them looking through our old investigators spot in our area book, and we decided to look for them! They are a family of 4, With the mom and her 3 children. They met the missionaries about 3 years ago, and about a year ago the missionaries never went back. The 2 daughters and the son were going to be baptized, but their mom never gave them permission. But now the oldest daughter is 21, the next is 18, and the brother is 15.

They were pretty excited to have us back, the mom also really likes the missionaries, she just never really listened to their message before. So this Tuesday we are going to teach them again and invite them to be baptized! 

The Lord is always aware of his missionaries.
