Hello dear family!!
I will begin to say that it has been a long week. But a good one in a way. Tuesday Elder Nelson and I spent our day saying goodbye to all his peeps here in La Leyenda. I ate a lot and it was a really good day actually.. but I knew what was happening the next day. He was leaving and we have just had a way fun change together. We go to change conference on Wednesday and he and Elder LaPray had their interviews... Well here are the results. Elder Nelson is in Peten in the jungle as a district leader and my dear Elder LaPray is in the office. They are so far from me but I can do this... haha. Ok but I really do miss them.
Well my companion is Elder Plata! He is Elder Proctors old companion and he just moved houses to ours down the street. We entered into this area and so we have the same amount of time in this ward. He has 19 months and he is from Nicaragua. He is really cool and I am really excited about this change. My spanish is improving which is really nice! haha maybe when you guys call me in 3 MONTHS, I will chat it up in Spanish... hahaha.
This week was also a little difficult just because change weeks are a little crazy. If you recall the sister we were supposed to baptized, well we couldn`t find her to save the life of us. She came to church yesterday which was really nice but she hurried and skidoodled before we had the chance to really talk. She told us she would meet us at the church at 5 but she didn`t show up... so now more searching!! I am really excited for this week though! We are going to work our little bums off and we are going to spread the good word!!
Well I don`t have a lot of cool or exciting stories to tell you all! I will have to make something way crazy happen this week so I can tell you a great story!! The ward here is amazing and I am happy I am still here! I love this place and there is a big piece in my heart for the people in this place! Well I love you family!! Elder Colton Steamberry Llewelyn
