Hope everything is going well for everyone out in non-MPC land because it is
going pretty awesome for us here! Where to begin?
Elder Aldave is my new comp and we are working great together, we worked
together before in Juliaca, Cusco, and in Bellavista last change. Elder Aldave
like myself went up to ZL within the zone. He is from Lima and is going to end
this change so it looks like I'm going to be here till at least September,
which I am actually kind of happy about.
This week was pretty awesome and by pretty awesome I actually want EPIC! We
received a golden reference from a member family and went to visit them. The
parents are already members but their children, ranging from 17 to 3 years old
and there are around 10 kids in that age group. Watching them walk into the
church was just fantastic. They filled it up and the other members were
shocked! We set the baptismal dates for June 30.
It's great to be finding people like the Escalante family and others that are
very similar in that they have been prepared to receive the Gospel. And just
this week we have had a few other people/families that have been that way. It
is a great blessing.
Hey look! Questions! (Is it just me or are my segues getting progressively
Does Peru celebrate Father Day? and if so how was it?
---Not really, at least from what I saw.
Did you ever get the Hockey Gloves you said you saw?
---Nope, the guy still wants 70soles and I think to keep on asking would just
up the price. $26 for a pair of fairly used gloves seems pretty
Is Peruvian toilet paper like European TP?
---If Euopean TP is basically the same as US TP then yes, if not....
Are the bathrooms like ours?
---Pretty much but the shower is electic which means it can kill you.
Think that about wraps it up here. Questions, comments, concerns? You know were
to send them.
