This week has been a pretty good one. We were able to Skype with Aushlynn on Christmas day and that was AWESOME! She looks so good. She is super happy and just had a great glow about her! Here is her letter.
Hey mommy and daddy!
The rest of Christmas was good! It ended up being like 105 degrees that's day. It was insane! So much different than Christmas at home. We just spent the day in a members home and played monopoly! I beat everyone! On Christmas they lit off fireworks but really they were just really loud firecrackers lol.
I also practiced my Spanish with Elder Culaca he is really cool and he teaches me pronunciation and words in Espanol and I teach him in English. My Spanish is getting better.. I am speaking more in lessons and just with the Latinos.
We have 2 people committed to baptisms on the 23rd of January so hopefully they stay strong and keep coming to church.
At times I find myself missing the cold weather but then I think wow if I was in that type of weather I would be hating it so! Haha whatever!
I miss talking sports with people. Here its just two Latino elders and they don’t even like soccer so..... Im praying for them. We played football Americano on the beach today with some of our zone. It was really fun except for the Americans either didn't like a favorite team or one of the zone leaders likes the Patriots... YUCKKKK. They were surprised I actually could catch the ball. I got a little sun on my face and on my arms but that's good lol.
I am collecting seashells to send to you! All is well here in Peru... We even got the elders to get pizza... my first pizza here. It was better than I expected it was like little Caesars but it was good. We got Hawaiian,it was like 10 soles for like 12 slices... wow how I'm going to miss how cheap things are here. Hope all is well back home!
Love you guys!
