So, I believe first and foremost I need to say that I am a bit sorry for not messaging earlier. Apparently, the day after Traslados is when we have Pday; so every 6 weeks if I don’t message en Lunes it’s because of Traslados ( no sé que significa en ingles, but I think it … More It’s a Tie!

Well, a great Missionary Experience I recently had was with our investigator Lukas.
