Long bus ride for investigators December 21, 2009

Hi Familia!

Well, it`s the week of Christmas and it`s still hot. :) It`s different but I really like it a lot! So I`ll have to make this short because Spent a lot of time figuring out the whole phone call thing, but I want to say that I am so excited to talk to everyone!I am allowed to talk for about 30 or 40 minutes so we`ll make the most of our time!

This week has been pretty incredible. Elder Ramirez and I have been taking trips out to a barrio called Real del Padre that is about a 30 minute bus ride from the city. There we are finding tons of people who are ready for the gospel in their lives. The problem is going to be how to get them to the chapel. The bus hours will definitely work with the schedule of the meetings so that`s definitely an option. It is a time committment and a money issue for them to come as well, but I know that somehow, they will have a way to get there if that is what they really want.

The baptisms for the 26th are still good to go and we`re getting them ready for their baptismal interviews this Wednesday. It`s way cool that they are going to be baptized so close to Christmas!Ok I should probably go, but I love you all and we will talk on Friday! I am so excited!!!

Feliz Navidad!

Love,Elder Hoglund
