This week was sweet!!
We had a baptism with one of our favorite investigadores and he is such a stud. It was really cool to see him follow through on this compromiso. BUT, we honestly had 0 luck this week jaja Nothing was going our way until Friday. Friday was awesome! jaja We found an investigador that has listened to the misioneros for 4 years and NOTHING HAS HAPPENED WITH HIM. Until Friday. . . jaja Yahhhh We were the chosen misioneros here in Arequipa. He finally accepted a date and he is going to be baptized this month! So that is awesome and he is honestly a great guy. He has just had a lot of doubts in the past but we were able to answer his questions and take away some of those doubts! His name is Juan Carlos and he has 50 years. So you know there is a time for everyone right? Our family of 11 is awesome. They’re the family that we did the family night for and we made cookies. The cookies were awesome and they loved them! What can I say, I have the gift of baking too Mom! This week we are going to make peanut butter bars with them. jajaja They want to make more food from the states and I don’t blame them. It is so much better than the food here. jaja. I haven’t had a solid poop in like 4 months. Can someone help a brother out??? I eat plenty but the food here kills my stomach. I’ve had 2 stomach infections and think I have another one right now. It’s part of the mission life, right! I work out as much as I can but I feel so out of shape. It’s terrible! I have a little layer of fat on my stomach now and it’s terrible. I’m starting to fill out on the muscles though. jaja I still am down on the pounds. The treats in my package saved my life. YOU HAVE NO IDEA. jajaja The best thing of my freaking life! I already ate the cookies and muddie buddies and yah opening a present a day makes my day so much better jaja. I LOVE IT! The holidays are tough on the mish but those things make it so much easier, THANKS!
Right now we are finally finding more people to teach. We have 5 fechas (dates) this month for baptism and are hoping to take out 2 more this week with this other family that we are teaching. The teaching really has been good here though. This morning we went to the World of Alpacas jajajaja I wanted to see the alpacas. I was starting to think that they didn’t exist. NEVER SEEN THEM BEFORE but now I know they are REAL! jaja We went with a family in the ward and had so much fun. Then we went to La Plaza de Armas again and had lunch. Good day good day!!! jaja.
No snow there right now?? I miss the snow so much holy balls! jaja Good thing the mountains are getting snow though. I have to say, Christmas blows on the mission but we are really trying to have fun with it. Oh, I’m going to send a package next week for Christmas for you guys. I don’t think it will get there in time but hope you like it.
The Spanish is coming a long nicely. I understand just about all of what people say to me but pucha speaking is the worst. I feel like I'm speaking right but at times people just look at me like "Why are you here?" jaja That’s always the worst but they understand that I only have 4 months so it's all good. Well that’s the week!
Love you guys and keep going ham and enjoy the week!
YA BOY HUNTS
