Two weeks news in one email. See how this goes.

So, I'm now starting my fourth transfer here in Engativá and I'm continuing with Elder Quiñonez. The last two weeks have been really busy work wise, but with rather few results. We have been working a lot with getting the members here involved in the work as well as looking for new investigators. We've got a great family that we are working with Diego and Maijorie and their son Diego Jr (he's 8, I love how perfectly the things work out). They are good, but only the Diegos could come to church last Sunday as Maijorie was in bed sick. Hope we can get all of them to church this Sunday. We've also got Estefani, who we are going to baptize on April 9th. She actually is pretty much a member of the Church, she lives with her grandparents who have been members for more than 40 years and only hadn't been baptized before because her Catholic father didn't want her to. But now, she is going to get baptized so that's all good.

On the Sunday of stake conference, everything went. I did my part well, but the choir was the most mixed up, off key, group that I have ever heard. Sister Kennedy would have cried had she been there. The talks were good though, especially, Sister Hacking's. She talked about making sure we are in places and in a state of mind in which we can feel the subtle promptings of the Spirit. She shared the story of when Christ came to the Americas (3 Nephi 11) and when God introduced Him from the heavens. God announced it three times, but the people didn't understand it until the third time when they were attentively listening. We all need to be sure that we are listening to hear that still small voice when it comes. There is not much more important for us missionaries than the Spirit.

Last Wednesday I went to the center of town with another gringo from my zone so that he could do his trunky shopping. I found some cool stuff, such as knock off cologne that costs $2.50. How cool is that! And it actually smells really good. Can't beat that deal.

Today we took it a little easier and just cleaned house and played card games such as Monopoly Deal and Uno. Also went and got groceries and we got haircuts. Mine is short, but still not as short as that one time....

I'd like to thank you all for your loving help and support in this work. Thank you for you prayers and your love. It means more to me than you could imagine. Really.
Love you all,
Elder Rallison
