Puerto Viejo, Heredia, Costa Rica 3.17.15

Dear Family,

I have incredible news! and some bad news....
First the Bad!
They broke into our house again! This time the Gadianton Band took an old television from the Relief Society. It doesn't work so jokes on them. Other than that no more bad news.
OK. Are you ready for all the good news?!?! 
First off, Octavio was baptized and confirmed on Sunday. One of better feelings in the world was watching this man change. He is here to stay. A true convert. 
Second thing is that we called our mission President about the 3rd robbery. He said that we have permission to find a new house as soon as possible. We have been house shopping and now our Zone Leaders will approve one so we can move in later this week. 
Thirdly, the Stake Presidency came to our little Group on Sunday to officially organize us as a Branch of Zion. All auxiliary leaders were called and now we a little Branch. What a tender mercy to have been able to see this after 6 months of working hard to reactivate and baptize. What a blessing!
The Stake President came up to us to say thank you for our work and commented on the robberies. He said that we were 2 days away from pulling the missionaries out of the area and closing it for awhile. They said we shall see what happens in the future. 
This week as well, Elder Duncan of the Area Presidency of Central America will be coming. With the mission split approaching we know it will be big. Yesterday, should have been transfer day, but all transfer are being postponed until after the conference with Elder Duncan. This is going to be a big week.
I know that the Lord is truly hastening His work here in Costa Rica. I love my mission. Hope you enjoy the photos!
Sigamos Adelante,

-Elder Neider

PS Love you all
