welp its been a great week here. kinda.. yeah it was pretty good.
so as i mentioned before i have elder robert arnett in my zone , sittin next to him right now actually. its awesome to have him here with me.
I HATE THIS KEY BOARD IM GOING TO THROW IT AGAINST THE WALL.
So the week started off well with the work. we had a couple members walk around with us and give us some instant-contact references, and the first few days were completely full. but, it was a slow decline of work until finally yesterday literally everything fell. we had nothing. and i dont know the area and elder ali didnt know what to do so we just went to our pensionista´s at like seven and then went straight hom eto talk to hermano Rojas. on sundays we end at 8 so we only got home a little early, and knocking doors is literally a waste of time, especially at night so we called it good and decided to have a nice church discussion with the man who brought seminary to peru and was the first peruvian missionary.
the good thing is that it cant really get worse than having nothing, so i have high hopes for this week!
when we finished up, i took off the service shirt. one of the hermanas commented on my shirt... i just happened to be wearing my smokey the bear t shirt. real appropriate for the situation. i hadnt even thought about it. ha its agood thing none of the people here knew who smokey was. WHOOOPS.
there´s pictures and interviews on noticiasmormonas.org (i think) if you wanna check it out.
yesterday i gave a talk in church. i was asked to speak for five minutes on the book of mormon. it went really well. i love when the spirit speaks through me and amps up my spanish alot. its cool to listen to myself as i speak in a fluidity and speed that i normally dont have. the Lord really has blessed me in my spanish. i get comments all the time and all i can say is that its God. i hav ent worked hard or really done anything on my part. just blessed.
oh and this morning i finished jesus the christ this morning! that book is intense! there were plenty of times where i would have to reread a part or re pray to keep going.
well it sounds like everythings goin good! jeff, get better! maci, stop getting old! everyone, keep on keepin on!
les quiero mucho!
