Bolivia, Cobija—Week 2

Dearest Family and Friends,

We’ve kept busy teaching, reading the Book of Mormon with our investigators, and serving wherever we can. It’s amazing how fast the time flies, but I don’t have any regrets. I am still learning and I still have a lot of work to do, but I know that every bad and good experience here has helped me learn something important that I wouldn’t have been able to learn anywhere else. I’m happy. I’m ready to finish my time here strong and accept God’s will for me.

One thing that I have learned is that when things aren’t going as I would like them to and I can’t do anything to change the situation, I always feel better when I’m helping someone else. This is a great lesson that will be of great worth in my life—no matter where I am.

I love you!

We went to “la Amistad” (practically the jungle) to cut down plants with machetes and got eaten alive by a small mosquito. The good thing is they don’t itch as much as regular mosquito bites. We had a good time helping the hermana so she can start building her house.
Yikes! Mosquitos . . .
 . . . but better than the Spiders!
“E” Investigator
She has a baptismal date set for January 17th. She is great, she wants to get baptized, and she keeps her commitments. Her only challenge is her family and her boyfriend. They are very Catholic and aren’t supportive of her decision. We are praying that her family will accept her decision and that she can be strong.

Some things I love about Bolivia:
The Kids. They are happy even if they live in the humblest of circumstances.
