week was just a grand adventure. I hope it was great for all of you guys too
and that you are all excited for school to start up.
I'm so excited for Charlie and Kaitlyn (no idea how to spell
that) this week. Sorry about that, I'll learn how to spell it when I get
to meet her for sure. I'm excited to have our family get even bigger
and I'm excited for the Youngs to be coming to Provo to make us even
that much closer. I love you all so much and will be thinking about you
I forgot to tell you last week that Elder Sines was
transferred. I learned so much from him and definitely miss him, but
know he is doing great things where he is. I grew a lot with him and am
looking forward to growing even more with my companion Elder Arciniegas.
He is from Ecuador and is a really cool guy. He only has 3 months on
the mission and is a really humble guy ready to be taught. I just am
praying that I can guide him for the correct path. I keep learning new
things each and everyday and even though I'm not training I feel it is
great preparation to be a parent. It takes patience and humility and a
lot of love. Thanks for always showing me those three things.
Probably the coolest story this week was how I found Haribo
gummi bears in the store here. I loved every single last one of them and
it was fun to be thinking about Dad. I don't know if they are better
straight from Germany, but I was in heaven for a little bit.
Yesterday, Antonio got the priesthood and it was so cool to
watch him bless the sacrament. He was pretty nervous, but it was such a
great experience. That family is so special and I feel so blessed to
have been here during the time that they were ready to hear the gospel.
We worked a lot this week with less actives and I love it so
much. I don't know why it is so fulfilling to me, but I feel like I am
doing what President Monson has asked of us ''To the Rescue''. I love
helping people realize what they have once felt and later forgotten. The
gospel is so special and everyone needs help along the path.
I didn't write much else down to remind me to write this week,
but know I am happy and healthy. It's definitely not easy, but it's
getting so much better. I love it here in Perú and wouldn't trade this
experience for anything.
I hope everyone has a great week starting up school and
getting back into the swing of things. I'm praying for all of you and
know the Lord is watching over you.
Thank you so much for all of your prayers and support. I feel it so much.
