Greetings from the City Without Stars! It has been a great week and
let's go to me with the report...
Yeah...that sounded way cooler in my head...
Anyway I have a new companion Elder Willy Chavez from Independencia,
Lima, Perú and he is AWESOME! He speaks no English but he is a great
missionary. Most of the Latins don't know a lot about the Gospel,
they have read the Book of Mormon but that is about it. Elder Chavez;
however, was a ward missionary before coming out and is fired up and
ready to go! I just hope that every companion I have could be like
What else...I picked up a Book of Mormon in Quechua (the native
language) and I'm going to see if I can't start figuring it out.
We've heard that pretty much everyone in Cusco speaks both so I figure
if I can just figure out how to do a door approach and bear my
testimony worst case scenario I can give the contact info of the
investigator to a native to teach them or something.
Last week we had a tour of Lima, I'll send pictures later with some
stories, I only have a little bit of time to write left so I'll leave
that for later. But I will say this, the ability to barter in the
shops of Lima is AWESOME!
Hasta luego mis amigos!
