Week 9 in La Candelaria

Week #32
This week went well. Sorry im writing a day late, we had some complications yesterday, and got permission to write today. 
So this week we had emergency transfers again. Our district leader, Elder Quintana was moved to a different zone here in Bogotá, to be a zone leader. Elder Neilson is the new Elder in our district, and was trained by Elder Macias as well as me. He is super cool, and I met him in my first zone in Neiva. 
This week we have been focusing on finding new investigators, because right now we only have a few investigators that are actually progressing. Zully and Manuel had their baptismal interviews, and will be baptized this Saturday, and we are super excited. We are hoping that Andres Torres will be able to baptize them. They are great, and are moving along really well. 
This week we had our first lesson with Jefferson, who heard the missionaries about 3 years ago. He still has his copy of the Book of Mormon, and is super excited to remember everything he learned when the missionaries were first teaching him. He told us he was going to introduce us to his family, and we are really excited to find new people. 
This Saturday we went to the temple with our investigators as part of an activity we do every month, and it was really cool to go again. We took with us Angela, who is really great, and loves the church. Her baptism was also planned for this week, but she didn't come to her interview, or to church, so we are going to see tomorrow what happened. When we were at the temple, I saw Elder Cribbs who lived across the hall from me at BYU, which was really cool! I was so excited to see an old friend. He is in the MTC here in Bogotá, and is going to Bolivia on his mission. At the temple I also saw Elder Hurtado, and President Dyer from the MTC.
Other than that, not much happened this week. im still loving it here, and having a great time with Elder Martinez. We are working hard, and seeing the fruits of our labors. I love this mission, and I am so content to be serving the Lord. 
Thanks so much for reading,
Elder Beck
Missionary friends, us at the temple, and our old district.
