Week 18 - New companion, Elder Wren

Hello.  My companion was transfered to Cochabamba, and I have a gringo companion, Elder Wren. He won't be here for a few more days, so I will be with a Colombian Elder until our new comps arrive. (Brad was with the Columbian Elder in the CCM)  But all is good here, this week we had a lot of lessons with members, not a lot of service.  Just working and doing the normal missionary thing. Carnival started this week and it is pretty good, but I like the Sandy City parade more.

(I told Brad a lot of people commented on his picture last week of plowing the fields in sandals)  Hey, the sandals, called abarcas, are what all of the natives wear.  They have car tire for the soles, and they have thick leather straps. Anything short of my work boots get destroyed in the fields.  Everyone, literally, has the sandals.

The investigators are progressing more or less, just keeping their commitments. We will have 2 baptisms for the people who I told you about who couldn't go to the temple because somebody screwed up their records, so they have to be baptized again. (A couple in Brad's area were off to the temple and had saved for a temple trip.  His mission president came to give them a recommend and couldn't find their membership records.  They were baptized in Argentina but the baptisms were never recorded).

Have a great week!
