Area: Juliaca Comp.: Elder Ayo
This week wasn't super exciting, especially now that we've kind of settled into a routine of sleeping, studying, and teaching, as opposed to having weeks of ridiculous experiences. Sorry about that, I know it makes for boring emails, but it makes for stronger wards! So that's good!
-Primary put on an activity 'for the whole family' on Friday, which was bizarre. It started two hours late, at 8:00 instead of 6:00, and went on until 11:30. That seems strange for a family activity to me, but whatever. They also had our High Council Representative choose the music, and despite the fact that he's 40 and was there with his wife and two kids, he exclusively chose music that was ridiculously innappropriate, so that was fun. They split everyone into two teams, and it was basically just relay races, but it was strange in that the first 3 were for kids and the rest were for adults. And these games got gradually worse, until at one point we as missionaries couldn't play without breaking mission rules.
-I cooked food for my pension's family! I decided to cook Philly Cheese Steaks, and that was the plan until I woke up that morning and could tell that it was a Spaghetti day. It went well! The noodles were kind of low quality (Peru), and the Parmesean cheese was expensive and also didn't taste right, but it was good!
-We had interviews with President Friday! Have I mentioned I have the best mission president in the whole world? I have the best mission president in the whole world. Every transfer he visits every zone, even though our zone is a 6 hour drive from Cusco and the farthest zone is a 12 hour drive from Cusco in the opposite direction. Every other transfer is either a zone conference or interviews with every missionary. He's awesome!
-The hand sanatizer here "kills 60% of germs!", so basically I'm going to die.
-Spiritual thought! "Walking where Jesus walked is less important than walking as He walked" -President Monson. Jesus didn't just come to pay for our sins, he also set the example for how we should live our lives. Try to follow it!
Anyways, the work's going good! We had 9 investigators and 2 less actives come to church yesterday! Stay awesome!
