Chapter 12, Versiculo 22, Pre-Christmas Edition 12.22.14

Area: Yunguyo  Comp.: Elder Vargas


-Spiritual Thought! John 3:16-"For God so loved the world that he gave his Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life" (or something like that). Don't forget in this epoca NavideƱa why we celebrate Christmas! Also christmas.mormon.org the video on the front page is just fantastic.

-I gave a talk! I based it off of that video! It went pretty well. My third talk in 5 months, two of which were in Spanish. Also it turns out I'm a member of the Branch Presidency here. I had no idea!

-We have this one family we teach, the Familia Peraltes. So the parents are inactive members and the kids are not members, so we've been teaching the whole family together with the intent to reactivate the parents so that the dad can baptize his kids. We taught them for the first time this week without the dad there, and the mom told us that she had secretly had her kids baptized at 8 in Puno, and the dad doesn't know. I thought that was pretty interesting.

-Beach Day! Last P Day we went to the beach! We obviously can't go swimming, so we basically just stood there and took pictures, but it still made me really happy.

Anyways, things are good here! Elder Vargas thinks his leg is getting worse, and is still on bed rest, but I go out with the other Elders and study like crazy. Have a fantasticly Merry Christmas! Talk to you guys soon!
