Elder Welling and Cali ZL's with Pres and Sister Prince hiking Cali (Ty is far right)

So, what another good solid long but great week. So Monday we had a
good Pday, and had a fun Noche de Hogar that went well with some recent
converts. Then on Tuesday we went to Cali on the long 12 hour bus
ride. Always fun, haha.. BUT ANYWAYS We finally got to Cali, then I
had a good time talking to my broski Elder Labar who is the ZL in
Calima. Was fun seeing him, then we went to the assistants house to go
to bed and stuff. We talked a long time with the other Elders that
were there. So that was fun overall. Woke up on wednesday morning to
go to a hospital so my comp could get a little surgery on his foot for
an ingrown toenail. gross. But it was kinda cool and only like 5
minutes. Also, the nurse gave me some tape for my blisters that I had.

Haha! But then we went around Cali, had breakfast, then after headed on over to Calima to help some new Elders in their new Area...which happened to be my first area. LOS ANDES!! It was great seeing all of the members there and everything!! One of my converts plans on going to the temple this month with his wife!!!! WWOOOOHOOOO That was awesome to hear! I am so happy for them! Then we saw some of the other old members, and helped them out a lot with everything getting to know everybody and what not. haha. Was overall a great time. Then, at night time I also got to see my first baptism, Valentina. She was doing well, but hadn't gone to church in a while, because she said she got into a little fight of words with some members over a pic. Really lame, but she said she is going to go back which was great to hear. 
Finally we headed to the Brinez house!!! It was great to see them!!! They
were all doing well, and was soo cool to see them all!! The Hermana Brinez
freaked out when I saw her!! Was so cool to see her and Michelle and
the family again!! Sad Sebas wasn't there, but that was ok-he's on his mission!

The next day we went to Zone Leader mtg. It was awesome! Started off with a hike up 3 crosses. Was cool, I was hiking up the whole time with Elder Jensen..went to BYUH and played golf too. Elder Riepl and Elder Edwards, was awesome. We talked about everything from the mission to sports. Was a great hike, then we got to the top and had a little message, sang a song, then headed back down for the other part of the meeting. SO that was awesome overall. The MTG was good, we talked about what we were going to do for the next month and everything. SO then after the mtg we headed off to Ipiales again. We headed out with Elder Edwards who is the new ZL of Pasto, and I talked to him a ton. He's great. Always fun talking to a gringo. haha. Then we got into town in Ipiales and worked.

Had a good time with everything. Got to meet the 3 new gringos who
look like bears. haha. They are huge, but it was cool meeting them and
helping them out. Like me, they don't understand Spanish very well yet, but they
will learn with time. haha. That was it for my week and today. Haven't
really done anything ese. haha!! 
Love you all and miss you all!
