This is what she had to say!
Hola from the CCM in beautiful Lima, Peru.
Holy cow I have tons to write you about this week it has been totally wild. Well first we got here at like 4:30 in the morning! I was so exhausted. You know me I'm used to going to bed at like 9:30!
We got all our bags here safe and got into our dorms! My companion is Hermana Pay! I met her over Instagram and we chatted before we even got here! Its been a blast having her be my companion. The other Hermanas in my room are Hermana Wager and Hermana TiaTia… Hermana Robinson and Hermana Moffiet! They are all a riot. I’m pretty sure we are the loudest group of sisters here! My kind of people.
Okay let me just start on the food. The breakfast is usually pretty disgusting like eggs that are just too eggy and mystery meat. So I usually just eat a piece of toast. Lunch is usually pretty good but you got to make sure you only eat the chicken because the other meats just scream GIVE ME DIAHREA!! The water is really nasty so I haven’t been drinking that much water but the juice they have is alright. The lemonade is the best so when that is an option it is like the best day ever. Also sometimes they serve soft serve ice cream and its muy Bueno!!!
So I have not gotten sick here yet but everyone else in my room has gotten really sick! I have been greatly blessed haha. Also I tried a granadilla. Look it up it’s a fruit. It looks like fish eyes! I mustered up the courage just yesterday.
So pretty much everyone here that is American loves you mom! They have all been using my medicine cabinet! They all thank you!So we got to go to the temple today! It was all in Spanish but they gave us English headsets! Its such a beautiful temple!
The showers here are actually decent and they have hot water!!!
I miss you guys all so much but.. here is not so bad! Hope you all are having a wonderful week.
Love Hermana BrownWe also received two pictures from her. I guess the fact that she did not take her camera charger did not doom me this week. I am going to get that in the mail to her by the end of the week by the way!
Hermana Brown and her CCM companion Hermana Pay. They are the only two missionaries in the CCM that are heading to the Piura Peru mission. I am guessing that there will be more come in at the 2 weeks to go mark that already know the language.
Hermana Brown...I am not sure of how she acquired the ties.....I hope that she did not beat up a couple of the Elders...I am sure there is a story....
