Update February 24th 2014

What a great week! Things are going really well and the time doesnt seem to stop for anything!

This past week has been such a good week. We have been teaching these 2 brothers and a sister for the past 2 weeks and this past saturday? They got cleasded with the water! :) We are goning to finish this month with 4 baptism which means we complete our goal. The Zone had a goal of 35 this month and competed.... 40! Its been a long time since a zone has done that. The zone has a goal of 37 for March and we are on track to complete 50, which would break the reord in the mission! :) Loving th work and people! Its alot differentin this Sector, But i love it. The people are so humble and are willing to listen to our message. Love it love it love it! :) 

Learned a lot this week about personal progres and faith. A lot of times we need to stop and ask ourselves where we are at in our lives. Where we want to be? Theres always something that we can imoprove. That self reflection is something that Im learning now. Where am i? Where do i want to be? How do i get there? Ask yourselfs these questions than make a plan to reach what you want! Its possible and with enough faith in Christ and his atonement.. Anyhting is possible.Give it a try!

Thank you all for the support and know that I love you and love hearing from you! :)

Kolby Update ZZZZ Ater Transfer

Sorry that I wasn't able to write last week... The Change finally came! I got transfered and Am now 4 hours away in a tiny little town called Quevedo.

I went from the huge bustling city to a town of a good size but it also has really small parts. Im in a town called Nueva Jerusalen. We live in the city, super nice house, but work in the... JUNGLE! Its so sweet! All the roads are dirt and tree houses are all made of wood or bamboo! Rivers and our sector borders bananna plants and after tht is all jungle. Its crazy! The ward is a lot smaller, I went from 250 in Condor to about 70 here. Little bit different. The chapel is smaller then most peoples houses in the US and theres only fans, no A/C. The people are a lot more humble becasue they dont hae much so the success rate here is huge. We had a baptism last saturday and have about 6 lined up for the 22. My Comp is from columbia and is quuite different than anyone ie had before, well see how things go! 

Sorry i dont have much time this week but ill write more next week! Thank you all for your suppport! Love you all!
