Hola everyone, 
        So this week has been crazy. So many things to do and so little time. As everyone knows, this week was General Conference. It was amazing. S many great talks! The way General Conference works on the island is a bit strange. First off we haven't had a computer since I've been here so we have been traveling by boat to the Elders island to email every morning.  So finally we got a guy come in a set up a new computer for us. We get it all set up and plug the computer into the TV in the chapel for everyone to watch. We push start conference and little by little we watch. The connection is VERY slow here so want was supposed to be a 2 hour session, ended up being a 3. BUT on the bright side, we watched General Conference. It was amazing to hear the prophet as a missionary. Something about being a missionary just makes conference so much better haha. I am becoming so much closer to my Savior Jesus Christ. 

So on our island we have these people from Columbia come in and sell stuff like hammocks, blankets, bowls, spoons,etc. So as we were walking around looking at everything they had we had a Colombian guy come up to us and ask what church we belong to. As we talked with him he had several questions and really liked what we had to say. He was super nice! (he kinda looked like my dad haha) Anyways we told him that we would go to the house and get a Book of Mormon for him to read on his trips. We came back gave him the book and talked a little while with him about the Plan of Salvation. He was super positive. Afterwards we asked if he had an friends that would like to hear the message as well. He came back with the whole boat haha. So we set an appointment at 7 pm to teach them all about out message. It was super fun! Now they are all going back to Columbia with a copy of the Book of Mormon. 

So funny story... So this week as we are walking along our island my companion points towards 2 ladies sitting in a chair. First off let me say that EVERYONE on the island has lice. So as the two ladies were sitting one was picking lice out of the others hair. Then she did the unthinkable. SHE ATE IT!! What??? Your not supposed to eat that. So guys, its not only in movies its real life. Throughout the rest of the week as we watch people get lice picked out of their hair someone ALWAYS eats it. Eww! haha. Just a fun little story for you guys. This place is AWESOME!! haha

So also this week we got to dress up as Kunas. It was super fun. All the people on the island loved it. Picture included. 

Well guys I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week!!

Love Always
