The week is going good, My replacements are arriving on Saturday so that´ll be great and I´ll be training them the following week. I believe that I´ll be leaving from the office the 26-27 of January depending on what president wants me to do before I leave. So that´ll be nice, get out in the field and do normal missionary work.
The other missionaries aren´t calling me a short timer, just an old timer. I´m now officialLy the "oldest" missionary in the field with those of my group and the oldest gringo in the group. So that´s kind of sad.
I went to the Larson´s in the afternoon to eat lunch, which was chili dogs, so no complaining there. President Andelin invited us to go to breakfast at his house and we ate bacon with pancakes, so also no complaining. Hmmmm. Bacon.

|PANORAMA OF CONFERENCE|
|MY COMP AFTER PLANKING|
We had our Christmas conference today, it was pretty good, unlike last year I was actually involved in the logistics of the conference so that made it a lot more interesting as I didn´t just enjoy myself, I had to actually do things to make sure it all went somewhat smoothly. But as for Elder Rogers he lives in Utah, so not that far away (only a short 20 hour drive in car, practically nothing), but he´s a cool guy, got along great with him in the offices when he was assistant. It was great that he was able to send the stuff home! The Larson´s are a family from Arizona who are here because Brother Larson works for the embassy. They gave me the pop tarts, I kind of miss eating them but with the one box I think I´m good until I go home.
At our last service project, we were cleaning it of all the sticks, rocks and other things as well as the horse manure that accumulated in the area. But he was happy for the help, don´t really remember if we got a whole lot done, but it was a good service. Don´t know if he is still investigating but it´s fine just helping out. I didn´t take any horse pictures because I didn´t think about it at the time, but the horses here in Colombia are small things, not very big in the chest.
President told me that I´ll be leaving for the field in January so I´ll have a few weeks in the field before I come back so we´ll see how it goes.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
