Boy, do I have some news for you guys! So last Monday a list was posted on the Cemetery walls here in Barbosa. The cemetery is just down the street from us. The list is called "La Lista Negra" or "The Black List". We received a copy of this list from the other Elders who got it from an investigator. It says that there will be a "social cleaning" here in Barbosa and areas nearby. It is a list of people who are going to die. There were about 45 people on the list and it also said that the others who are not listed know who they are. The people to will be doing the killing are some police and the gangster people here. It says that they are going to start after all of the fiestas, which ends today. This apparently happened about 9 years ago and there were a lot of deaths. The list also says that the people should make copies of the list and give it to loved ones so they are warned and know to be careful during this time and says that they are not responsible for "the innocent that fall". The people who they are targeting are drug dealers, prostitutes and people like this, however if you are talking to them at the time they want to kill them, they wont hesitate to kill you as well. Ya, so we sent this list to the Zone Leaders and probably it will go to President Andelin. We are waiting for a response, which will probably be to be in the house at an earlier time, or we may have to leave Barbosa. People have told us to be careful and everything during this week. But don't worry about me! I know that if we are obedient and are doing the Lord's work, he will protect us. But this is pretty crazy, right?
This week went a little better. However, I need to be more assertive with my companion about getting up and going to work. I know that that is the only way that we can find the people who are ready for this gospel! Oh yeah, Today is my 5 month mark! CRAZY! In some ways it feels that I just left yesterday, and in others it feel like it has been forever. But I'm just going to keep on working hard and doing my best! I hope everything is going well in your lives! I love you all and thank you so much for all the love and support!
