Hello Mom Dad and everyone,
Well it’s getting really crazy out here with everything that is going on. The last few weeks we have been doing things to get ready to go home like last Tuesday we went to the temple with the missionaries that’s are going home with us. It was kind of crappy because they just kind of let us know out of the nothing. So a lot of missionaries recommends were expired so they couldn’t go it kind sucked so hopefully they do something more before we leave. Today I heard that one of the APs moms is coming down to pick him up and she is going to make us all food from Peru. That should be interesting.
So here in Latin America we always watch conference in English. WE call it ´´Gringo Weekend.´´ I really don’t like watching it in Spanish. The translators are really boring. The same emotions doesn’t exist in them as actually listening to the Prophet Apostles and Seventy. So on Saturday we went to one of the buildings that is part of the stake but out of the zone. We hooked up with all the gringos of the 2 zones in the stake. We were 12 missionaries in a small family history center. It was a lot of fun.
The Sunday morning we had to watch conference in Spanish because we took a few investigators to it and we couldn’t leave them alone so we had to go with them. I fell a sleep for like 5 minutes in Elder Scotts talk. He translates his own talks because he speaks Spanish but he has a very dull accent in Spanish. But is was good.
My favorite talk was Elder Anderson´s talk about the priesthood. I was really thinking in his talk that now is the real test. That man know I have my whole life coming up on me. That this is the moment to really see what I am worth. I know what I have preached for the last 2 years is the truth and that I have done it through God´s power. I always want to be worthy of it. I don’t want to fall like I have seen so many people and members have done. I am excited to see what happens and to see how I can inform the temptations I have. I know God will be there to always help me I am just going to have to look for him to help me.
Well today we had a really good time. I finally after more then 2 years of waiting we went up to Pikachu. That’s is the statue of Christ here in the city. Or what you know it as the Coca Cola Cristo. It was a lot of fun. If we come down here we will have to go. It was really chill up there. It reminds me a lot of northern AZ like Flagstaff Payson area it is way cool. I felt like I was back at Geronimo again hahahaha.
Well it’s coming down to the wire one more Monday and that’s if you go back to writing one email hahaha that’s so crazy. I’m so excited to get things going. Can’t wait to see you all.
Love you all I’m doing great we should be having my last baptism on Saturday. I’ll let you all know next week.
