Puerto Viejo, Heredia, Costa Rica 2.3.15

This week has been pretty great! Lots of tender mercies and a little let downs. First off, today was Transfer Day. I am still going to be in Puerto Viejo with my companion Elder Alvarado. So 6 more weeks together. I'm still serving as a District Leader which always is interesting. Right now i have a sister that flat out doesn't want anything to do with me. I tried to figure out why and her companion said she simply is making the decision to not like me. Oh well. Its a great lesson that I'm learning in Leadership and in Charity. haha. There's always a bright side to thing right?
I am very happy to be staying in Puerto Viejo. A few weeks ago I remember praying to the Lord for one more change here. Looks like He thought that was a great idea :) Today we will be meeting with some lawyers to figure out how to divorce and marry 4 incredible investigators for this month. Its really weird. The mission really is the shortcut to the adult world. haha 20 year old white kid helping divorce and marry 2 couples in Costa Rica. Haha alrighty.
The reason is here, lots of people that have gotten married and after leave and begin living with someone else. To obey the law of chastity, they have to legally divorce and then marry the person they are living with. It's sad but that's part of the culture. We found an interesting loophole in the law though. The divorce process in Costa Rica is a 10 year deal. But we found that if the married persons have been separated for more than 3 years, their marriage is anulled and is void. If this is true, we will see many more baptisms in Costa Rica. haha like I said, it's really weird. Never thought for once in my life I would have to do these kinds of things. haha. 
I love you and I hope things are going great with everyone. 

Sigamos Adelante,
-Elder Neider
