3 Weeks to go

Week #98
Hey Everyone!!

Well this week went really well after all!! We thought that since the 28th and 29th are holidays, the 28th being Independence Day for Peru, this week was going to be horrible but it went actually very well! I guess since it was holidays that the people were in their houses and were actually quite receptive for the most part! There was lots of drinking going on which was a bumer but we were able to manage it all and escape from the drunks! 

These past couple of weeks we have been having a decent amount of lessons! I dont exactly know why but the people have been letting us into their houses a lot more recently! We have been having lots of lesson with less active members of the church and we have seen quite a bit of progress in the past couple of weeks! In general we are having about 5 and sometimes more less actives coming to church which is really good! It always makes us feel good inside when we see the fruits of our labors!

This week i did a work visit with one of the Zone Leaders in my district named Elder Allgaier and it went well and was pretty fun! I went to his area and we had some pretty good lessons and it was fun to be with another gringo! It was fun to talk in English haha! Im not really a fan of sleeping in other peoples beds and im not really a fan of the garbage truck when it passes by your room at 4 in the morning and honks its train horn three times right in front of the room!! Thats was not fun but not much we could do there! It was a successful visit and i was able to learn some new things too!

Other than that there hasnt really been anything to extraordinary that has been happpening recently.. just enjoying and working hard for the last couple of weeks that i have left!! People have really started messing around with me always reminding me how much time i have left and things like that... I guess that happens to every missionary at some point in time!!

I know that we have living apostles and prophets on the earth today and what a special treat it is to hear their words! Love you guys all and hope you all have a great week!
