I like to see that every ones doing good back in the states. Good to hear Drew that you’ve set some sweet goals. Definitely stay on track and read everyday! It’s something I regret not being more prepared before I left. jajaja. It’s what ever. I’m still killing it now though! jaja. GOOD LUCK AT REGION AND STATE BRO! That’ll be sick and you gotta keep up the Simonsen legacy in track! Just keep working hard, love ya man. So did you guys get the packages?? I sent two so hopefully you got them both. I didn’t think the little nativity would survive but I tried. jaja Sorry for that. I finally got my card though so thats good!! Phew what a relief. It only took a month. I’ll be looking forward to the package! I always love getting packages.jaja They save my life!!!!
This week was a fun one. We spent the whole week getting to know the area and it’s pretty sweet! My area is freaking huge.. jajaja In a car it takes us 2 hours to go across. We have to walk everywhere or ride these mini van things around. It’s just pure farms and hills so it’s nuts and so much different than Arequipa. The people here are super humble and so it makes it a lot easier to open an area. We have found some pretty sweet people this week. I’m determined to work in one of the rice farms here for service and I’m going to milk some cows! Pretty stoked about that. Were also going fishing for shrimp but it’s illegal right now. jaja The season opens in March and one of the members said they will take us. HOLY BALLS this place is SOOOO HOT and there are SOOOO MANY MOSQUITOS! It’s terrible! jaja but we just keep working hard. I really do like my area though. Surprisingly our apartment is huge! Jajaj Like Giant! And we have a big fan so it’s all good but a super poor area. We helped a lady dig a hole for all of her crap 2 meters deep. My comps pretty cool too. We get along muy bien but he’s just a little lazy. jaja It’s to be expected so I just get him to work even when he doesn’t want to. I told him if I wanted to sit around and not do anything I would have stayed at home! jajaja. So he got the point that I’m here to work and not lazy. The new pens is alright but the food is not the best. I’ve been sick for the past couple of days and it’s tough. I’m tired of being sick. I’ve been drinking a ton of water and it’s filtered so that’s good.
Everyone have a fun week and keep working hard!
Love ya Boy,
