Area: Sicuani Comp: Cedeno
-TY'S LEAVING ON A MISSION THIS WEEK!! That's so crazy! Make sure that he brings a golfball on his mission!
-Elder Uceda (the President of the South America Northwest Area) from the Quorum of the 70 came to Cusco to come talk to us this week! He came on Thursday, but there was another riot in Sicuani so we had to leave Wednesday afternoon and come back Friday afternoon. The conference was great! It was him talking for 6 hours, about half of it about repentance. At the beginning, he started with, "I feel like the Lord wants me to invite you all to repent." Then he talked about that for a really long time, and added, "I hadn't planned anything about repentance for today, but the Spirit told me to talk about this." So that's terrifying! Also every once in a while he'd start talking and get this face like he was listening really intently, then he'd say something profound. It's cool to see people so in tune with the Spirit!
-I went to Espinar this week! It's a sector in the zone, but it's outside the city of Sicuani. It's 3 hours of switchbacks away, it's the highest place in the mission, it's the coldest place in the mission, it's got the slowest internet in the mission, and it's widely regarded as the worst sector in the mission. I just visited with one of the Zone Leaders who was going to do a baptismal interview. It was cool!
-We found out when we had to travel to Cusco on Wednesday, only hours before. Everyone got the news pretty quick, except for one companionship that doesn't have a cell phone and had already left to work for the day. Elder Cedeno and I went on a treasure hunt for them, and we found them! Success!
Anyways, it's been a good week! Keep up the awesomeness! Don't do stupid things! Have a great Peruvian Independence Day tomorrow!
