Jacob is awesome! We hang out and talk whenever we can and have played volleyball everyday together!! Elder Wooden and I are in different rooms but just hang out in the halls together next to our rooms. We have gotten so close but are excited to get to Barranquilla. The CCM is jammed and we can't wait to get out of here on Tuesday!! I am in a room with other Latinos and Elder Stucki (from Oregon) and another Gringo companionship. We can't have our cameras except for on pdays so I will have to send those pics to dropbox when I get out. I have snapped a few. I have put on 10 lbs. in 5 weeks and I promise it isn't in the wrong places! Proselyting again was an amazing experience!! Getting cussed out is a daily thing I guess and it helps because you can't do anything else but say thank you and laugh!! Smiling truly is the key to a successful mission! I am so amazed at how much I have learned in these short, fast 5 weeks but can't wait for the opportunities I have to learn many more lessons and teachings from my Father in Heaven!! I realize now that true happiness comes from the gospel and scriptures and simple truths we sometimes take for granted! That is all I am here in Colombia to do is to teach the people about the simple truths we have! I love you all and hope you all are having mission opportunities in your lives!! I have learned how important the members are to the missionary effort!! I love you guys!! I will email when I get to the mission home. Keep doing what you know you need to do!!
