So like Easter isn`t a thing here, the actitud was a bit different. Semana Santa was a bit interesting, everyone went out. The classic here is that they all go to little pueblos outside of Montería. The city was so empty that there were hardly tiendas to buy water. It touched walk around searching a tienda that was open, and the only one we found was a bar/tienda estilo colombiano and they were sure "santificando las fiestas" (I hope Mom remembers that from Perú).
This week, Élder Alvarado and I had a discussion about goals. We have a tendancy of putting a goal and verifying at the end of the goal if we reached it. That´s an awful way to progress in life. This week, we are going to try to put a goal and reach that goal, with the actitud that nothing can stop us. In cap 8 of PmE, M. Russell Ballard has a quote. I have to search it in English because I only remember it in Spanish. “I am so thoroughly convinced that if we don’t set goals in our life and learn how to master the techniques of living to reach our goals, we can reach a ripe old age and look back on our life only to see that we reached but a small part of our full potential. When one learns to master the principles of setting a goal, he will then be able to make a great difference in the results he attains in this life.” Élder Alvarado and I are trying to apply the principles of SMART goals and metas significativas to reach higher results in the zone and in our area. Have a great General Conference, invite someone who doesn´t normally go.
