My new are is called Kennedy! In the zone Dorado!

Week #57
Hey Everyone!!

So Im doing pretty well! This week was a little crazy but it went well in the end! My new are is called Kennedy! In the zone Dorado! 

First off last Monday we took and 8 and a half hour bus ride to Chiclayo and it was horrible! We were on the top story of a double decker bus on a windy road for like 7 hours and it was terrible! My head was killing me the whole time but we ended up getting to Chiclayo without any incidents! When we got to Chiclayo it was really pretty cold outside but it felt really good! We unpacked and we went to the office and President and Sister Williams took us out to dinner with out companions! After that we went back to our area and we ended up getting to the room at like 9:45ish and i unpacked a little bit and then went to bed. The next morning i woke up and it was pretty cold and on top of that we dont have warm water so its not very fun to take a shower... Were going to move at the end of the month though to a room that does have warm water! 

So being back in Chiclayo is pretty cool but id rather be in Jaen! My area is really dirty and dusty! Almost all of the streets are dirt and the wind blows pretty hard so the dust is constantly getting in your eyes.. My new area is pretty small too! Anyways it will take a little time to get used to it but it should be fun! 

My new companion is Elder Hinostroza! He's from Lima!! Hes the only member in his family so its pretty cool that he came on a mission! All in all it should be fun and we'll work hard together!

Its always a little hard to leave an area and to go to a new one and get to know other people all over again and to have to learn the area all over again but its all the mission experience and im sure it will help me later on in life with something!

So we are working with one investigator who is 65 years old who has a baptismal date for the 8th of november! Hes really pretty cool and accepts everything pretty well the only thing is that he cant really walk anymore so we have to go get him to go to chuch and even then sometimes he says he cant go because he didnt get ready or things like that but well see how things turn out and if hes ready to get baptized the 8th..

We are working a lot with reactivating members of the church who are now less actives! The ward here is a little weak and it doesnt have a very good attendence rate so were working on reactivating some of the members and we have some families who are really progressing which is cool! Well see how it goes later on!

All in all im doing pretty well and everythings going good! I know this church is true and thats why im on a mission! I have really gained a testimony of the church while being in the service of the lord! Its just an awesome feeling even though its hard work sometimes!

Love, Elder Jarman
