Another week has just FLOWN bye! It's honestly scaring me a little just how fast time is passing by. Before I know it, I will be in my last few days....NO! Well, first update. Starting January our mission, Colombia Bogotá Norte, is going to get gringa missionaries! (North American Sister Missionaries). So that's going to be super weird haha. I honestly feel really bad for the first few gringa Sisters because I know they are going to get SWARMED by missionaries and if out of Bogotá, they will get swarmed by Colombians. But, we will see what happens.
Other update. We had concilio on Thursday and everything went well. I didn't forget anything which I give all the credit to my super OCD perfectionism and checking lists like 5000 times haha. But this concilio had the most supplies that we have had in a long long time because we hadn't had one since the end of Sept and we won't have another until December. THERE WAS SO MUCH STUFF! So after concilio, we taught the guy who called us that wanted to know more. He is SUPER awesome, went to a church activity Fri and then went to church on Sunday! However, we found out he doesn't live in our area and actually lives in Federman :( but he may move! So we will see what happens. So after the appointment, I got a call from a missionary and he told me that his comp had a headache and then started to have paralysis...FREAK! So they were already in the clinic but I had to go to the office to send them a Letter of Guarantee. After calling Aetna and getting the letter and emailing it to the clinic they told us that they were not going to accept it. So, I sent a different letter and they refused that one too. But in the end the elder left at 1AM and they only had to pay 150 thousand pesos and the elder is doing well now.
Tomorrow I have to go to the Santa Fe hospital to get some blood test results and x-rays for the sister that refused to take my advice and insisted on going to the doctor. I definitely have my schedule full, with meetings, missionaries calling, and then having to go and run around Bogotá a little bit. But I'm definitely learning patience and I'm learning how to plan better and get things done more efficiently and faster. It's cool being in the office and I like it. The only thing that I don't like is that it is really hard to find and teach people with a limited schedule. But, we are working on it and this week won't be as hectic as last week. Some parts we have been advised not to go at night, which also makes it hard to find less actives when they live in those parts. But if there is a will, there is a way and with the help of God EVERYTHING is possible. We just have to keep working hard and contacting and I know that we will find people that live in our area and we will have success. I love this gospel and I know that this church is true. I know that everything that happens in our life is for a reason and is perfect. The only thing we have to do is keep the commandments and endure to the end. The gospel really is simple. Its only our natural man and temptations that make it seem so hard. Love you all! Have a great week!
