It's a good feeling when your investigators come to church!

Week #43
Hey Everyone!!

I hope you all had a great week! Last week went pretty well here in Peru! It was a little strange because my companion went to Lima to do some paperwork and so i was with another companion for 3 days!? We also played a joke on everyone from our ward that my companion had an emergency change and that he wasn't going to come back... We set everything up perfectly! We left a picture and he wrote a little note too! The pension and her husband were really pretty sad! We played the joke for a couple days but then the Sisters told our pension that it was a joke the night that my companion was supposed to get back. When we went to dinner with Elder Aves that night the pensions husband ended up coming in when we were finishing up and he smashed an egg on my comps head for playing the joke! It was really pretty funny!!!

It was a little strange not having my companion because you get so used to the way that your companion teaches and when hes not there you have to adapt to different ways of teaching! I guess it could be a good thing to change it up every once in a while and to learn some new things! 

This week we got some new references from some of the members and some of them seem really cool! We also found a really cool family yesterday who seem like they could really progress but well see about that this week! This Saturday if all goes well we could have 2 baptisms! One would be Carlos R. who is really cool! We are really going to have to do a lot of work this week to have these 2 baptisms! We have to give quite a bit of lessons to Carlos and Paul if they are going to be able to get baptized this week! Its a little bit hard sometime because a lot of times we cant find time where one of us isn't busy to be able to visit them but somehow we'll work it out!

This week we have also been visiting Luz and on Sunday we went by her house and she said she wasn't going to be able to make it to church because her kid was sick.  We went to church kind of bummed but towards the end of the sacrament meeting she ended up coming to church anyway and that was awesome!! Its a good feeling when your investigators come to church! We were also going to give the class but all the investigators that came had something to do and so they couldn't stay and so we didn't end up having to give the class!! That just means that we have to give it next week though. Haha we got saved for only a week! 

Other than that everything's going well! I uploaded some photos of our District and when we went hiking to that little waterfall! We also took some pictures with Luz and Ruth in their garage on some mototaxis! We were also messing around and taking pictures with a lighter and a flashlight leaving the exposure open for a long time! Well i hope you guys have a good week! For any of you guys who are reading this who aren't members of the church i would encourage and invite you to come to church one of these Sundays! I know that it could help you all a lot! The members are all friendly there! It will feel like family! Love you guys!

This is a little bit from Damon's personal email to me. There is nothing more that I want than to have happy children and happy is he!
"Yes i still love the mission!!!! There's always hard times but i feel like the good times definitely outweigh the bad times!! No i never think about coming home! I like the mission too much! I sometimes think about time, but when i think about it i usually think that i don't have enough!"I sure love my boy!!!
