This week we had changes. I have my new companion. His name is Elder Kamiya and he is from Hawaii. He has 17 months on the mission. Elder Bonn did go to 'Turialba' and his companion was the Ecuatorian guy we saw at Wendy’s. My Dl is training a new elder from Utah. Every companionship in our zone had changes except for our zone leaders. This weekend they showed General Conference at the Stake Center in 'Purral'. We were only allowed to watch the sessions on Saturday if we had investigators there. We had planned to have investigators but they didn’t show up. Even the ones we tried to pick up couldn’t go. We were able to watch the Priesthood session on Saturday and both sessions on Sunday. We took an inactive 15 year old named Luis to conference on Sunday.

Elder Kamiya baptized him like 6 months ago in another area. Luis and his family moved here in 'Dulce Nombre' and he hasn’t been to Church. I’ve been trying to get him to Church but now that Kamiya (the one who baptized him) is here it will be better. We put a baptismal date with a woman named Hannia and her daughter the other day. We have to continue working with her. We are going to set another date with Leo as well. Mario hasn’t been confirmed yet. We are going to confirm him and maybe give him the priesthood this Sunday. Vera is rock solid. Her daughter Andrea is going to start getting the lessons for herself now. This week is Semana Santa (Holy Week) so our p'day isn’t today this week. Our p’day will be on Friday, but no buses will be running so I don’t know what were going to do. We got a lot of work to do this week and I'm really tired already. If you send a package I just want some food (gummy bears and worms, cookies, candy, etc.) and some pictures from home and a pen. So Elder Anderson talked about tio (uncle) Edgar in the conference? when was it, I think I missed it. talk to you later. ♥ (It was during the press conference… Van driven by a Mission President Bolivarrrr *Ü*)
