Hola mundo! Estoy en Barranquilla!

My first week has been almost all really good! My trainer is Elder Hernandez from Peru! He’s really awesome. I´ll send pictures next week, right now my card isn´t working on this computer.

Colombia is awesome! All the people here are super kind! We teach about 8 lessons a day, which is so awesome! We have a branch of 90 active members, and some 600 inactives, so most of our work is with them.

This week, I very much have loved reading 2 Nephi 4 in the Book of Mormon. As misioneros, often it is difficult to feel like we are being diligent enough, fluent enough, worthy enough, smart enough, spiritual enough, or just enough in general. But, in the end, this is not our work. This is the work of the Lord. He is the one that will convert the hearts of those we teach. All we can do is try to teach powerfully and pray that the Holy Spirit will be with us. At the end of the day, and at the end of 2 years, we will never be able to teach a perfect lesson.

But, like Nephi, at that time I hope I can say that “I know in whom I have trusted”. And therein lies our joy.

Con amor,

-Élder Mortenson
