Hello family,

I owe ya’ll a long letter this week so I’ll make it a good one. I’m still really enjoying my time here in Cucuta. Im pretty happy for this week because we will finally have the baptism for Andrea. We have been teaching her for about 2 months but something always comes up and we couldn’t follow through with the baptism. Things are looking great for this weekend though. We also had a baptism this last Saturday so we are having progress here in cucuta. Ill have lots of pictures to send next week. I forgot my camera or else id send them right now. Right now in the mission and i think the whole world is that we need to work with the ward council so that’s what we are trying to do. The work is a lot more productive when the whole ward is involved and not only the missionaries. Right now in the mission our main goal is to baptise. President has told us that we need to double the number of baptisms here in cucuta so we can be an example for the whole mission. Today we went out to go shopping in the center of cucuta and i bought a pair of shoes. My pair of shoes that i bought in sears finally wore out. The pair i bought in macys is still going strong. I also bought a san francisco tshirt and some chocolates. Here in colombia they dont celebrate valentines day but the day of love and friends which was this past weekend so we’ve got lots of chocolates to give away. I hope you are all reading tthe scriptures everyday and going to the temple often. If not you are missing out on all kinds of blessings. Well thats all ive got to say for this week i love and miss you all.
Elder Sawyer
