Thats the life of a missionary

Week #58
Hey Everyone!!

Well this week went pretty well actually! Im started to get used to Chiclayo again and im enjoying the cold!! Im not really enjoying the dust so much though!

So this week we have been pretty busy!! The coolest thing that happened this week was that Elder Waddell the 70 of the area came and spoke to our mission!! It was super good!! I really feel like i learned a lot of things from him and that what i learned will really help me to be a better missionary!! His Spanish is amazingly good too! It would be cool to be able to speak like him at the end of the mission but hes been speaking spanish for quite a bit of years now.. Ill have to work pretty hard if i want my spanish to be like his! So that was my favorite part of the week! Jaen also came down for the conference so i got to see all of the Elders and Sister from Jaen too! 

This week we have been going out visiting with the memerbs a lot this week! They have really helped us out a ton this week! This week was one of the better ones of the mission! The only bummer is that almost none of the investigators or the less actives that said they were going to come to church ended up coming... Its hard to work all week and then when Sunday comes around they dont end up showing up to church. Thats the life of a missionary though! Its tough sometimes, but its helps me to be stronger!

Another cool thing that happened this week is that Yesterday we were in a lesson and right when we finished the lesson at night we walked outside of the house and i looked to the left and saw something i thought i recognized. I did a double take and i realized that it was the car of the son in law of the pension in my first area! So i went over to the car and he got out and we talked and it was really wierd that i ended up running into him but it was really cool to talk to him again after a long time! We also talked about some of the people that got baptized while i was there and some of them are doing good and others sadly have gone astray... All in all it was cool to be able to talk to him after a long time!!

Today in the morning we moved to a new room! We moved because we werent even living in our area and sometimes we didnt have water in our old room. Our new room is on the third floor in the same house where the pension lives and were going to be able to put in warm water which is going to be cool!! So in the morning we passed all of our stuff to our new room and as missionaries we dont really have a ton of stuff so we were able to get it done really fast!! The only bad thing is that the bathroom still isnt quite finished yet but everything should be done tomorrow for sure! All in all the new room is pretty cool!

Thats all for now! Everythings going great here! Sorry for not having pictures.. Its just that the area is a little dangerous and i dont want to get my camera stolen but ill try to get some pictures this week! I know that this Gospel is true and that when it is really understood it has the power to change our attitude and our lives! Ive seen it a lot of times in the mission! I know that this is the real church of Jesus Christ here on the earth and that he leads and guides it by his living prophet and apostles!! Love you all!!
