This week was actually super good here even though I messed up my neck and back pretty good. jaja It was super good! We had a huge conference this week with all the missionaries from Arequipa. Elder Falabella un setenta talked with us so it was super cool. He just kind of told us that what we’re doing isn’t enough and that we have to do more. So I’ve just started to work even harder. I talked with Pres on Monday and he helped me out a ton. He helped me realize my true potential como misionero. He’s got a lot of high expectations for me and he knows what I can do so that’s always a good thing. He said that is why I have re opened 4 areas and have turned them around. I would feel bad if something happened and I hadn't work my hardest.
I’m super bummed about my neck though. The freaking nurses won’t answer their phone so I don’t know when or where my cita is with the doctor. Hopefully I can get in today cause it’s hurting more each day. You can probably tell I’m a little crooked. One shoulder about 2 inched lower than the other. jajaja I’ve just gotta stay positive though right? I try to joke around about it and I have a pimp gimp going on. I’m not ready to come home to get this fixed so hopefully they can do something for me here. The Pres says he will see what the orthopedic surgeon has to say before we decide anything. He’s supposed to be the best orthopedic dude here so hoping he can help me out a ton. I gotta do what I gotta do right? I just feel like there’s so much more left here for me to do. Not quite ready to go home.
So this next week we have a baptism. There had only been 3 baptisms in this area in the past 2 years. It’s the last day of the month. jaja and his name is Josep. Not much to tell jaja He is 16 and his parents don’t want him to get baptized but he’s cool. He wants to so we’re working with his parents to give him permission. He’s already going to seminarios and stuff like that so he’s super cool. I’ll get a pic with him this week. We have 2 others set for April, one has 16 years and one has 14 years so that's cool right?
The comps cool. He’s super hard to understand but he’s cool. jaja Peruvian Spanish is so bad! He helps me a lot though. The thing is, he like never talks with our investigadores so that’s a little odd. I usually do all the talking so it’s all good. I’m used to it and I’m practicing the language. I stepped up my language study this week cause I wanna learn the language completely. I’m just trying to get it all down.
Thanks for all the support from everyone at home. I really appreciate it! I will let you know how things go after my cita! Love you!
