Zoe Crams into the Back of a Pickup

David's (Zoe's Dad) notes: If you ever get a chance to live in a poor country, you'll have the privilege to take public/private transportation. So, it's a private truck that is used by the public and the more the merrier.

Buenas!!! I hope everything is going well in the USA. Things are swell here. Just pluggin away doing what missionaries do. Nothing terribly exciting or new but I will share a couple.

1. Raikel is getting baptized! He´s soooo cute and 11. His Aunt and Uncle and their family is LDS and he´s super great. He loves church and the scriptures and everything about life! He´s super responsible and smart. He wakes himself up every and make the walk to church. He´s only 11 now, but we´re sooo excited and he´s going to do some great things in his life!

2. Just my companion and I had 11 investigators at church this week!

3. Today we met 3 girls from Switzerland that are staying in our town for 3 weeks. It´s cool, but actually really weird. And we struggled to communicate between English and Spanish. We started in Spanish, but then realized they knew more English, which still wasn´t a ton, but we made it work!

Here´s a picture of my life. Remember how I used to hitch hike when I was in school in Hawaii?
That´s child play compared to how we get around now hahaha. Check out this photo. Everytime we leave our town we have to take one of these truck that the shove with people. We lucked out today that they had like a seat thing in it, but usually we just sit on the truck rim. Is it dangerous? Ya. But we have no choice and we´re pro´s at it by now, and it´s quite breezy!

 ¨I am o thoroughly convinced that if we don´t set goals in our lifes and learn how to master the techniques of living to reach our goals, we can reach a ripe old age and look back on our lifes only to see that we reached but a small part of our full potention. When one learns to master the principles of setting a goal, he will then be able to make a great difference in the results he attains in this life.¨
- M. Russell Ballard

Talk to you next week!
