I’m now back here in Juliaca, where during the last two weeks something catastrophic in the atmosphere must have happened because it is COLD like Canada cold. We could possibly play hockey on the ice that is in the river in Lampa (pictures to come next week my camera is in Lampa, sorry).
Because I’m running a bit low on time and there are lots, question time!
When you were in Cusco did you go to church in a ward or a branch?
---Neither because we were only there for Election Day Sunday.
Are you keeping up your journal?
---Yes, but I’m not sure whether I want it in Spanish or English.
Do you have a family that you like to go visit and if so who are they and why?
---Not really, pretty much Alex and Hermano Estanislao a member whose daughter we are teaching. And mostly because they are always happy and helping us with the work.
How was Cusco? Did you enjoy it?
---Cusco was AWESOME! I can’t wait to go back there and hopefully work in Zona Inter-Raymi (one of the zones there that covers the Central part of Cusco). The members are great, the people are fairly receptive and the views are fantastic! Just don’t stare at planes too long or you might fall in a three foot deep hole…not that something along those lines happened…
Did you eat at McDonalds, or anywhere American?
---Yes, I ate in MickeyD’s and it was AMAZING! I have never eaten a Big Mac that tasted so good!
Do you want to continue in the rural areas, or do you like the city better?
---I honestly prefer city just because the areas are larger with more people to teach and members to help but the tranquility (can’t believe I remember that word) is really nice.
Where is the pic of you in your glasses?
---Like I said I forgot the camera, next week I promise!
Will you have to go back to Cusco around July28 when the new president begins?
---We don’t know how all of that is going to work yet, but hopefully not. But we are going to go to Puno for the 4th to celebrate with all the gringos there.
Since they added more elders, do you think you will stay for another transfer?
---I honestly don’t know but after 6 months in Lampa, though I love it, I want to experience somewhere different.
Well thanks for the letters and support! We’ll talk next week but till then I’ll just leave you with contact information and Taps for the contract of Mr. Ilya Bryzgolov, we are going to miss you Mr. Bryzzy. And I still touched your glove that game.
