Well, it seems like a kind of rough week there for Grandma and Grandpa. I am hoping and praying everything will be okay. Let them know how much I love them! As badly as I want to be upset with how this accident happened, I also know this is a good time for us to practice loving everyone and forgiveness. Two of the most important things we teach in the gospel. I will be praying day and night for Grandpas recovery. Drew, tell Nathan I love him and have fun this year bro! Remember who your true friends are and Nate’s definitely one of them so keep an eye on him!
It was a pretty crazy and fun week here though haha. My buddy here, Elder Rokovitz, is such a stud! We were all sitting in class and this fly was bugging us so bad. Someone yelled first one to kill it wins! The thing lands on the window and he open palm smacks the window and just blows the crap out of it hahaha. He was a wrestler so he’s a big guy. It was so funny to see the look on his face after. Like I said last week, I’ve become known as the guy who can jump really high and far so nothing new. haha. I jumped over this fountain here that is about 19 ft or something like that so super easy. Had to do it for the fans. It is awesome here and I really can't believe how well I’m learning the language. It’s way cool here. We play a lot of soccer here and I love it now for some reason. I am sure it’s because I am going to be playing it a lot for the next 2 years. hahaha I have to say that I’m not half bad either!
One of the coolest things we did on Saturday was proselytizing on the streets of Lima. It was so nice to be outside the walls of the CCM and have some time to walk around in my walkin around shoes. I had my big boy pants on! It was one of the most humbling experiences that I’ve ever had. We were in one of the poorest parts in Lima and so it was pretty crazy. I taught a couple lessons and got to chill with a lot of the kids here! I love them so much. They are the bomb. They wouldn’t let me take my backpack or anything sadly so I couldn’t take any pictures of the experience but it was so cool! One family that we taught literally lived in a concrete box with one side of it open. They had a couch, refrigerator, and a small table. It was a mom and her daughter. Such a cool thing to see how much the gospel meant in their lives when they literally had nothing. The mom’s testimony was amazing and it made me realize that I was sent to Peru not to serve the country of Peru but the people and how much I can change their lives. The little girl in that family was maybe 5 years old. They didn’t have enough seats for us to sit down during the lesson so my comp and I stood while they sat. She ran out and found two of the smallest chairs for us to sit. and I’m not going to lie, it was the cutest thing ever. It was such a cool experience. I can’t wait until I get out of the CCM and actually serve the people! I am really getting tired of being all cooped up here. It’s all good and it’s going so fast. I love it here!
One of the funniest people at the CCM is the janitor. hahaha He calls everyone here maripositas and walks away laughing so he and I chill and have a good time. I don’t have a lot of pics for the week because I couldn’t take my camera to the coolest thing I did. Love you all and keep on having a fun time and live a little for me!!!
Love ya boy Hunts!
