Well I had a better week I guess. I am missing just a little bit here as we enter into December, I can't even believe it. I am just trying to soak it all up and in before I head home to the winter wonderland that it is turning into. I am pretty excited about that. This week we finally found out the doubt that Jenny has, well she feels the spirit pretty strongly when we go to the house and talk with her and what not, but doesn't feel the spirit at church, which is kinda a HUGE problem. But we will get it figured out here in the next 2 weeks or so, just need some more time, which is short for me.....haha
Also, heard the new harry potter came out, please send me an update, I am going to buy it before I come home cause it will be out on DVD here. But yeah heard it was good. Also my favorite Soccer team here is doing super well, they should be headed to the final and they are the favorite to win but haven't won in over 30 years, it is kinda sad, but pray for them. I always said they would win before I leave here and this is their last chance. Today the Alvarez family from Duitama was here in Bogota and bought me and a bunch of other missionaries lunch. That was good.
Also I had a good thanksgiving with my house, but we didn't have a traditional one. We had a mexican thanksgiving, we made big burritos, it was super sweet. I loved it. But well we just threw them together. I forgot my camera today but next week we will get them sent to ya.
I was super thankful this year, even though I am in Colombia, but I have sure learned a lot in the last 23 months, it hasn't been the best 2 years of my life, but the best 2 years for my life. I have rather enjoyed it, but I am happy to be ending, but also super sad to leave behind the people and things I love here. I love Colombia. It is awesome. I love my family and I thank them for all the love and support you give to me. Hope you all have a great week this week and can take a snowmobile ride. Take some pictures. Also take a picture of the front lawn too. Thanks for everything have a great week. Preston have a great finals and kick em in the butt. yeah
love you all

Well like I said I am training and no mom you didn't guess right. I am training elder Bernal from La Paz Bolivia, which makes 5 Bolivians on my list. He is a good kid just everything to him is so different and he is struggling to make the adjustment here. he knows how to teach pretty well and lets me have my thinking time. So we will keep you posted on the companion news in the coming weeks.
As for me, well I have been starving to death, i am so hungry all the time, may be the fact that i have been working out in the morning so my two brothers cant beat my up when i get home. But yeah we are surviving. As for the work. Well Angelica is coming along she is our baptist, but really likes the church and is improving in her financial situation as well. And we have a new one named Jenny Jimenez, who is a reference, who is awesome, and should be getting baptized on the 4th of dec.
Also it has been raining everyday here for the last 3 weeks but in my area no problems with water other than our appt. cause there is no pressure in the morning so it is cold water or nothing. but a lot of the country is struggling.
well i love you all have a great week. PRAY FOR LOTS OF SNOW! Love you all love elder nathan naegle

Gold GOld and More GOld Well we changed p day to go and see the gold Museum here in Bogota. Pretty neat stuff.

Well to be an obedient son, I was asked to write a letter this week, but seeing as I am in my last transfer, and I get to talk to you in a month I don't really see the need, but I want to be a good boy and do what I am told. So well transfers today, getting a new companion, that I am training, so don't know my companion yet...but it should be good. But yeah I am not worried about it. As for all the other stuff I am just kicking it here to watch my time dwindle down. I hope we can get a few people baptized before I leave. But I can only put in my part and have the lord work the rest out. My testimony has grown a lot in the last transfer. I want to have it be like Moroni when he writes he won't deny the Christ. I quite like it, I just finished reading the Book of Mormon again. IT IS TRUE!!

Love you all have a great week thanks for your love and support, see y'all soon!

Just trucking along..
Today played soccer with the zone and the assistants, it was a good time then just rested.

Well put me to work when I get home cause boy are my hands are nice and soft for the working. Washing to many dishes here, which by the way brings me great pleasure and joy to do.

As for my area, I am struggling a little bit, cause we have the people but they won't come to church, and it is at 11 for heavens sake, but we are trying to work on that so pray for them
Flia Paredes
Flia Huertas
Flia Rodriguez
Flia Salas
Flia Serpa
With just them there is about 20 people so if they would just come to church!!!
I am happy and well getting up at 630 and doing a little exercise and everything, not trunky yet.
Mom tell Dan to email me I want to hear from him and how is he doing.
Well love you all thanks for your love support and prayers

Well I don't have much to say today again, I am sorry that you want more information, but I just am going to focus on the highlights. Today well it could darn well say that it was the best day of my mission. Headed to the temple about 7 this morning and found the Bosque ward there so we bought a few things, then headed inside to start the best thing ever. Did the session, which we almost didn't make, but with the help from the temple president we made it. They hadn't had their temple recommends signed by the stake president but with a few phone calls we made it all work. Then with that all said we did the session, to me it felt like it was super long, cause I wanted to see the sealing, but it was kinda cool cause I got through the veil in Spanish with out help today, for the first time. That felt good. And yeah on to the sealing which was the best thing ever. The spirit was so strong and it was so cool to see the kids there it was just awesome......!!!!!!!!!!! and yeah, I felt super good after.

As for this week, well it was pretty good, I have been throwing up like I said on wed. but I am doing much better now. Saturday we helped move all day it was terrible, I don't ever want to help people move ever again. Sunday it was super cool cause we had a Regional conference, Elder Whitney spoke from the presidency of the 70 spoke and conducted, he speaks good Spanish, then Richard G Scott of the 12 spoke also speaks good Spanish and then the prophet spoke it was super super good. So yeah. The week started off rough, but ended excellent. I am happy and well glad to hear the adventures from home.

the church is true, I have a strong testimony. I may have had converts in the temple, but I am still my best convert...I love you all love your son and brother
