2014-02-24 I'm headed to Satèlite, in Potosí.

Hey Everyone,

Well, I'm leaving Alamos.  I'm headed to Satèlite, in Potosí.  It's like 14,000 feet above sea level.  I'm sad to be leaving Alamos but I'm excited for something new too.  Elder Olson from my group was there before and told me he liked the area.  He said the bishop and ward are really good, the young men's program is just a mess because they haven't had a president in a year.

It's going to be weird leaving my area and Cochabamba though.  I've been here a long time.  I know my area well and I know the whole city of Cochabamba pretty well.  I'm glad I'm leaving at the end of the rainy season though.  I will probably be back for the next rainy season

Also it looks like I will finish my mission on March 11, 2015.  That's about 95% sure.

This week was good.  last p-day we played soccer and then went to a restaurant where I ate chicken sil pancho then we went to visit the Floreses.

Today I'm going to the Floreses too.  I'm going to leave a box of stuff with them because I can't fly with as much weight as I have.

We had another good lesson with Miguel and Carmen.  The husband will arrive in Bolivia on April 1st and they'll be baptized on the 5th.  
Miguel and Carmen
 On Monday we talked with Santiago and his mom and his 7 year old brother Rafael.  He turns 8 on the 13th of March and the whole family has baptismal dates for that day.  
Gerardo's family
I can't remember if I've told you about Elvis, he's one of Gerardo's friends.  We had a good lesson with him on Tuesday.  he believes that everything we've taught is true and if his parents give him permission he'll be baptized on April 5th.  His parents are very Catholic but his mom loves us and can see that we are helping him. I think we'll get permission and hopefully the parents get baptized too.  The mom is listening to us now.

I'll be in Potosi tomorrow.  I'm excited to see how it is.  I'm sure I'll have lots to write next week.  I hope you all have a great week.  Don't forget to be going to the temple.
