How have you guys been doing? Ive been doing really good here in bogota. Weve been enjoying some great sunny weather these days so thats been nice. Today my companions and I went to the temple and it was amazing like always. I really enjoyed my time there. It was great to have a nice peaceful expirience. I needed to be there. Here where i am serving right now is in the middle of the city, or downtown. It gets pretty chaotic at times and i see some pretty sad, scary, depressing, and interesting things. Even just here sittign in the office i can see the traffic, ambulances and everybody running around. This week was a little bit different though. Seeing as its la semana santa, (holy week). It was a little bit more peaceful in the city. It did make me alittle bit sad though. Just seeing how it feels like everyone only seems to remember Christ this week and then just forget about Him after sunday. Im really glad we have the chance to partake of the sacrament every week to remmeber alll that he has done for us. The church put out a great video and site about easter, heres a link if you havent seen it.   http://easter.mormon.org/   well id also like to tell you about another cool thing that happened this week. On sunday night we didnt have anything to do for about half an hour so i decided to call all the unknown numbers in my cell phone. We were able to contact a great investigator named andrea and now she s preparing to get baptised on the 24th of may, (happy birthday dad). We are looking forwar dot teaching here more this week. we also brought a new yorker to church on sunday so that was interesting, He doesnt speak much spanish but we found him on the street and he´s pretty interested. Also we contacted a muslim man but it doenst look like he is very willing to change. Well thats just a littl ebit of what happened in this week. I love and miss you all.
