Haha... Writing is so hard. I can’t remember ENGLISH!
What’s going on with me, it’s so weird. I’ve forgotten so many words it’s crazy! But for real - I think, dream, sleep talk, and write in Spanish right now so when I go to email it’s like what’s up with this. Not going to lie I think I understand probably like 90% of what goes down in this place so poco a poco! I am really working with the speaking part of it right now and everything. It’s tough at times especially when I don’t have a comp that speaks Spanish to help me out. haha So you know how I am, I just talk a lot with the people here to practice. Who knows some day I’ll get it all down!
I got my packages and holy nuts that was the best thing I’ve ever gotten in my life! Mom, will you send me the recipe for the cookies. I am going to do a family home evening with our investigators and make cookies with them. It looks like I’m not getting transferred. I spoke with the Pres and we decided that I’m keeping myself here in Alto Misti with the green pea! I’m going to finish his training and so I’m actually pretty stoked about that. He is a stud and I like to train and to be able to lead and teach them to work hard. The Pres said we have the best numbers in the mission so why break up a good thing. Sometimes it get’s a little frustrating but hey nothings going to be easy right? We also had 2 baptisms on Saturday and we have another one tomorrow and another one Saturday!! WHATT!!! So that’s what went down here! As for this week! This week was pretty sick. We’ve been contacting a bunch to find people who are ready to listen to what we have to say. Contacted another 120 people this week and found some sweet investigadores here so that’s good right! We have a family of 11 that we found last week so we’re working to get them dunked. They are called the family Ochecheque and are super cool. We are hoping to take out the dates for them this week. We’re only teaching 4 of them right now but I think we’ll be able to get the rest of the family encouraged so that will be awesome! We have a fossil here that we found that wants to be baptized too! haha He’s a really good guy and has like 72 years or something like that. We set a goal for him this month for the 31st of December so let’s get that done! Other than that we’ve not had a lot of luck with the people. haha. There are so many people here that just look at us like we’re sent by satan and say they want nothing. These Catholics are freaking hard. No worries though, we’re working hard and going ham!! We did proselyting in our Santa and Elf hats you sent this week everyday so heck yah lots of people laughed! haha. Also we had our day of service at the temple grounds here in Arequipa. We are helping get it prepared for the ground breaking and construction. We planted 300 trees! I think they are breaking ground the first part of January but I’m not sure. It is going to be pretty sweet to have a temple in Arequipa. Well, that’s the week!!! No mas! haha
Have fun this week everyone and get out and do service! Love and miss you! #Lighttheworld
