June 26: "God is always ready to talk to us. But we need to open our hearts.."

This is my last full week with Elder Santos. He finishes his mission next Tuesday and then flys back home to Peru. Really going to miss that guy. We work well together and we've become really good friends.

Took a different micro (bus) to go to our district meeting. Took us in the completely wrong direction and we got lost for like 2 hours. Fun to see more of Bolivia though!!

Celebrated San Juan!! No idea why its called San Juan or why its celebrated. But it was an excuse to eat chori-pan, so all fine by me haha

Aldo came to visit me again yesterday. Had a great time catching up with him. Man I love that dude hahahaha

Elizabeth is going to be baptized this Saturday!! She is 21 and studying to be a doctor. Super smart and funny (a little sassy too haha)! We have been teaching her for awhile. She said that she believed in the Book of Mormon and everything that we were teaching, but she didn't want to be baptized. Man that was frustrating. Then out of the blue, she called us saying that she was ready!!! She said she was reading the Book of Mormon when she got her answer from God.
I love the scripture that opened Elizabeth's heart:

1 Nephi 15:11
Do ye not remember the things which the Lord hath said?—If ye will not harden your hearts, and ask me in faith, believing that ye shall receive, with diligence in keeping my commandments, surely these things shall be made known unto you.

God is always ready to talk to us. But we need to open our hearts, believe in Him, and do the things that He has asked of us. Only then will we recieve an answer. Love and miss you all!

Les quiero,

Elder McClune
