Week #56 Colonia Dalias Torreon Jardin

This week was a lot of fun!  We had a crazy ward activity that consisted of a rally of activities and we seperated into teams to compete!  It got about as intense as a church sanctioned ward activity can get, but it was even more fun because my team won!  A lot of members brought…
