Mocari, Monteria Colombia


Elder Torres

Week 13-long days and short weeks

Alright friends and family. how is everyone doing? Reading? praying? attending church? listening to prophets? I don't know who had the chance to listen to General conference but man was it so good. So much direction and insight into this life and this time. I really do know that they are prophets and apostles of God and they are called to serve and guide us in these troubling and difficult times.

We had quite the week and I am so grateful for so many people and things it's is unreal. It's funny because this has probably been the hardest week that I have had out here in the field. Especially mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It's interesting to see how when we really do choose to follow Christ and focus our lives on his teachings and doing things his way that we learn to be grateful and happy even during some of the hardest trials of our lives. Just ask Job. Really though I am so grateful for so many people that taught me how to work, teach, love, and so many things. I can't even say. I am so grateful that through football and wrestling I learned to work with people and build them up even through we have disagreements. Really grateful for all the support and love that I feel from everyone at home and throughout the world and especially for those here that love me and want to help me even when I can barely communicate with them. The love of Christ isn't 1 dimensional or for only those of you are close with him, it is for all of his children and we can only exercise it when we remember that and really turn into a family in communities and throughout the world.

The champions of desafios visited Mocari on Monday so that was a big party I got some pictures and videos because we tried to share our message there but it didn't work out to well. It was political but really cool to be honest. Had some juice with some ants in it which I did indeed drink 2 glasses of don't even start to doubt me. We had seven cockroaches one night which was quite the activity running around killing them. I will never go to a movie theater in the states again cause the price is outrages. You can view the same movies here for roughly a $1.25 or so so. I have found that it is.

If anyone has any questions about Colombia or what I'm doing or suggestions for things to include in my emails feel free to reach out and let me know.

Spiritual though....... 2 or 3
Read the scriptures. All of them. They all build and work together so well that we can not live without them. Every morning I grow and learn so much in every aspect from my study of the bible and the Book of Mormon I don't know what I'd do with out them.
