Choirs of angels (December 22, 2014)

yes, we are the angels of the choir ;) haha, but hello once again my friends! is anyone else amazed that its already the 22nd? crazy! 

but back to the choir thing! we had a crazy week of choirs! this week on friday we had a preformance in the plaza in the middle of the city with all the other missionaries it was a pretty awesome time! i definately made a fool of myself afterwards because everyone started singing that song in spanish and english... "i wanna wish you a merry christmas" and they called me and another elder over and made us dance with these signs... why i did that i will never know. it was just one of those things from the moment... so that was interesting! but lots of poeple saw us! and a few of them asked. so that was good. 

Then we had a big activity in the ward this saturday and we had to sing in ANOTHER choir that the ward had put together with us... that one was a tiny bit less beautiful... but still fun! and the activity went really well! we had lots and lots of poeple there! and like 13 investigators! we have some awesome inestigators right now. they have gone to hcurch a lot! just waiting for their baptism! 

This week we spent some more fun time in Tur Bus waiting for missionaries, but it was way better than last cambio. we didnt lose THAT much sleep this time but it still made the beggining of the week go by pretty slow. and then after that. FLEW by again. there is no stopping it.

We had a few lessons with an investigator from Colombia named Ronald... he is so cool, i love him to dath but he is soooo closed to the book of mormon. he accepts it like a good book. but as the word of God... never. but he is reading! so one day he will know! and we have this awesome hermano that comes with us that matches his knowwldge of the bible and helps us out a ton. plus the hermano always gets pumped after we go.  I love the members of this ward, they are all soo awesome. so dedicated. we have excellent families and excellent support. Plus i have another 2 and a half months here so we are just gonna take advantage of that. im sad that i never had the opportunity to go out with the missionaries before i left. i really would have liked that i think. basically every member we take out gets super excited about it.

Ive been working a lot on like setting more specific goals for myself these few days and its been awesome to see how much more effective i have been. especially in study. studying for like 20 minutes in specific things and not worrying so much about reading like straight through. thats what i used to do. i did finish the BOM 3 times this year, but i think it will be more effective to study more in themes. though i do have to keep reading straight through the bible and the DyC before i end my mission. then once i have finished it all i wont have to worry about it again haha. im currently reading in psalms... its a little bit slow... but there are some sweet things in there as well.

God is Great! its incredible to watch him help us in so many ways. I love the mission and im so grateful for this opportunity to change myself and to serve Him and my brothers and sisters! There is nothing more important than the things we learn about in church. nothing. im sure of it!

Im ecited to talk to you guys on thursday!! love you!!!

have a great week!
