This past week we had a Branch fast for Missionary Work. The entire week, the Branch was fasting. But how it was done was that one family would fast for a whole day, and a different family the next. That way we had people fasting the entire week, and then finished it all together on Sunday. It was SUCH a cool experience, and I've never participated in something like that! I really feel touched by the examples of the members to do something like that!

We have found a new investigator named Francisco, a friend of Hermano Villatoro, a less active in the branch. This week we will be visiting him as long with Alvaro, our other investigator. Finding people has still been tough, but we're working to find more!
I truly have loved my time in Columbia so far, every day seems like a new miracle. This past weekend we helped out with another quinceanera, and got the opportunity to meet more and more people and talk about the Gospel!

Another: "The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They MAKE the best of everything." I've truly realized that on my mission. The people that are the happiest, always have a happy attitude. I've realized how much more I need to work on that! To make the best of everything instead of trying to attain everything. Attitude is so much more important on your mission, as it really decides how your days go!
I love this Gospel. I love it so much. I'm so grateful for the Atonement and the wonderful power that it has to change lives and give us something to lean on on those days when everything seems to go wrong. I'm so grateful for my mission and for the support that I have. Have an amazing week!!
