Hello Family! This week was hectic and crazy. Elder Castaneda and I both received new missionaries--greenies--so we're both training here in Carolina. And I am opening up the "new" or just untouched area of Carolina: the campo. It's like going back to Corozal, except it's not so high in the mountains. But there is no foundation of work in the campo right now, so my companion and I are starting it up. I have a cool story about that later on. We had a good planning session today where we get everything worked out for this week. My new companion's name is Elder Smith. He's from Stansbury Farm, Utah. He's a really nice kid. When I decided to go work in the campo I had the inspiration to go and talk to one of the ward members who had grown-up there. When we asked him to take us up there he was really excited. He knows basically everyone up there--because a lot of them are his family. Going with him was like having a door be opened to a "seemingly insurmountable wall" as David O. Mckay said. We met his family and friends and they invited us back, so I'm excited about that. Another exciting thing is that Omar and Rosa are officially getting married and baptized the first week of June. That will be really cool :) We played basketball with Omar and some of the members and other investigators last Friday and it was really fun. My body was so sore though: I haven't done anything nearly as rough as that since tearing my abdomen. I was really sore in that area for the next two days. Haha. But basketball was so fun because here are all these Puerto Ricans and then four missionaries from Utah. They thought they were going to run all over us: but we won 3 out of 5 games. We were joking about Preach My Gospel having a secret basketball-playing section. Besides all that, nothing exciting has happened. Just working. And being tired. I had some really good fresh-made guacamole the other day with some tacos. I love Puerto Rico. And I'm almost 20: the oldy years. Anyway, love you all! Elder Cevering
