well I am sorry i didn't get you written yesterday, Tuesday was pday but went on a wild goose chase looking for wendys here in Bogota, that doesn't exsist, but well I ended up getting super sick, including throwing up in the street in down town Bogota, so it was an exciting day. Ended up going to the office for a little while until traffic died down. I don't really have much today say cause I have been sick. just an average week for us, had like 18 people committed to church on sunday and well about 5 came, it was sad. but we will keep working on that for next week.
The best and most exciting news is Monday the Familia Cuellar are getting SEALED in the temple so I am super excited about that. I will send you pictures, and it may mean that I will be writing on Tuesday. Also, I need a little bit of cash, cause I am going to buy them something from the temple store, and they don't take a Credit card. please and thank you :)
Apart from being sick, I am happy and doing well. just trying to keep to myself and finish up well. the weeks are flying by so I am trying to enjoy it all while I can. I love you all so much and am so very blessed to have a great family like I have. so thank you! have a great week love your son

Well, got transferred this past week, and am here in Bogota again. My ward is called Fontana, in Suba. I love the ward, so far. We have two great families that help a lot with the mission work and are just fun families. In fact, I am learning piano.....can you believe it? I have had one lesson, and can already read upper hand....I guess you could say I am just a stud.....haha
My companion, well he is Elder Suarez from Lima Peru. He comes from a family with lots of money. Visited Utah and other places before his mission. He has only 2 months in the mission. We had interviews today and the President also said that our mission needs more Elder Naegles, so I may not be the best but I am doing something right. That was cool to hear.
I don't really know what to tell you all other then I love you, and well I am just a rocks toss outta here to see you all. so I am just trying to be good and work hard.
I really hope i just end here in this ward, so I can have 3 months of Piano to whooo you with when i get home, and maybe a few ladies....haha
All i have to really say is that i have grown a whole bunch in the last 20 months. I can see my own progress, and it is gratifying. So i feel good.
Um, well i have a strong testimony of this Gospel. It was restored, We have the Fullness, and we need to take advantage of the priesthood power that has been given us. The book of Mormon shows the world that these things are true. We must value its teaching and counsel. From Conference, I really liked the 13 points of a Modern Prophet, by elder Costa I believe. and the importance of a living prophet on the earth.
Love you all. Thanks for the love and support. hope you all have a great week. Les mando mi amor con un abraso fuerte. Nos Vemos entre poco!

Well another week down here in Colombia.
It was nice, it was the last week of my companion, Elder Cuevas. He heads back to Bolivia, wed, at like 10 pm. it has been a good time with him. I wish i had one more transfer with him.. I haven't said that about some of my companions, but you never love em all. As for me I also was transferred to another Zone here in Bogota, not sure why, but whatever. I am just happy I am in Bogota so I can go to a sealing on the 1st of November...i am super excited. Not super sad to leave my area cause I was only here one transfer. But there were a few people I will miss. The family we activated, RINCON family and our 2 young ladies Sandra and Catharine. and the Ramirez family. They were the only people that gave us lunch every week. They are good people. Don't have much, but give what they have. and yeah that is about it for the whole area thing.
As for me. Well they didn't let me watch the Conference in English, so well I understood it all, but didn't get nearly as much out of it, so I am going to download it and Listen again this week for study. So yeah. as for Conference, i am 4 for 4...haha i love conference. Hope you all enjoyed it and if you didn't make it, better head to to catch up.
Sounds like it nice with the weather back home. It has been raining here everyday. kinda the pits. But what can you do. That is one thing i am not happy about staying in Bogota. but it could be worse. and yeah
I don't have much information this week. Just happy and truckin out the last few months I have in Colombia. I have come to love the people and country. Just trying to soak it all in and enjoy it. I know the church is true, and that we have the restored Priesthood here on the earth, to give us the best blessings a family could ask for. I love the Lord and am so grateful for his Infinite Atonement. Let us all remember we took upon us his name when we entered the waters of baptism and let our light so shine so the world can see it. Love you all thanks for the love support and prayers. Have a great week and look forward to hearing from you all next week
Love Elder Nathan Naegle

Well I hadn't gotten you written, so I figured I better do it quick. With Zone Conference we had 7 elders from Yopal here, cause they are part of the zone. Yeah super hard to have more people in the house. Didn't make it to Internet yesterday entertaining them and then we had an appointment. Found some free time now. Just got done with a very stubborn woman that is Catholic. She just doesn't understand, and to be honest I think she knows the church is true just doesn't want to admit it. As for our appt. yesterday night, OH BOY i cant get this girl Cathrine to feel the spirit when she prays her roommate can feel it just fine, she just thinks she is NORMAL all the time. I will keep trying with her though. But please pray she will feel the spirit.
Also Sunday Cathrine went to church Sunday with Sandra her roommate and it was so IRREVERENT they didn't feel the spirit, I was a little upset, but what can you do....keep trying.
Don't know what else to tell you, being a week and a half I cant remember much. Went through the temple Wednesday, and after to the Kawasaki dealership that is across the street. Super sweet. both the temple and the kawi store. and yeah. Heard I might get Transferred as well, not sure why but well i don't make the decisions around here just follow them...
My comp is doing super good he finished up his mission well. I am proud of him. Became pretty good friends with him. Kinda wish he had one more transfer...but what can you do. He is happy to be going. and yeah. I am just trying to keep focused and finish up.
Also remembered that Dan got home this week tell him howdy, get his stuff together to go up to school. and that is about it.
what have you heard about old PW?
but hope all is well, I love you all I didn't have much time but thought I would say hi and that I am doing well. love you all love your brother and son
