A busy and adventure filled P-day

Hola everyone!
So the past few days have been really fun. On Saturday we went proselytizing, and we went back to the same area as last time in the city by this mall, and it was really fun.  We ended up talking to this man in a park, and then his wife and two little girls came, and we talked to them for like an hour.  They were such a cute family, and they seemed really interested in the gospel, and the wife even knew about the Book of Mormon and the plan of salvation, and it was so cool.  I really think that the lord had been preparing them to hear the gospel. we got their contact information and gave them the address of the church and the missionaries number, so I really hope that that goes somewhere!

Then on Sunday, it was another amazing spiritual day.  Monday was our last day of classes with our current district, so that was both fun and sad.  Today was awesome! We went to the Temple in the morning, and then went on our field trip during the day! We just got back a little bit ago, and we had Subway, and now we get to email, and later we´re watching a movie.  So a pretty fun day! 

All the Latino missionaries left today, and tonight the new North Americans missionaries are coming in, then tomorrow the new Latino missionaries will arrive, we will get our Latino companions! I´m excited, but I´m also scared I won´t be able to communicate very well... so we´ll see!

So on our field trip; we drove a really long time.  We went through the busy city and then into the countryside full of beautiful green trees and hills.  It was so cool to see some of Colombia! I couldn´t tell you exactly where we were though.  Finally we got there, and we see these HUGE castles and colorful buildings and museums and things, and we were so excited to go in... and then it was closed! We were so sad!  So then we went to the other place we were going to go next, a cathedral de sal, which is this cool salt mine which they built a cathedral in.  So we were able to spend a lot of time there, and it was really fun. Afterward, I bought this elephant magnet made from the salt, and then I also got this other little golden elephant :)

I have to say that I am super tired, but I´m so glad we were able to go out and explore, and spend some time with our district for one last time.  The pictures on this blog post are from today’s busy day and activities.

Love you all,
Hermana Tijerino
