Happy 4th of July
Well I kind of miss the festivities
of the fourth which kind of sucked. The only thing that the peruvivans
were celebrating was the day of the friend which is a day that was
created by a beer company where they lower the prices for beer so there
were a lot of drunks. Also the Copa America had the final which chile
won. I know because during the times of the futbol games all the people
will not let you in because the are "really busy". The only festive
thing that I ended up doing was that we sang the national anthem with
all the americans during the mision coordination. All the pervuvians
laughed but I am glad I am part of the states.
I completed 8
months in the mission and elder Nordhoff completed 1 year this week
too. It was kind of funny because the night he completed a year after
planning he just sat there and stared at the ceiling saying how long a
year is. I mean the mission is long but it goes by really fast. I was
cool though because he burned a shirt. I want to burn a shirt for a year
but I will probably just burn one of the shirts that other missionaries
have left because I feel like a just have enough shirts to get me
through the weeks.
I feel like I know my area okay now. I
am kinda sad because we are pretty sure that elder Nordhoff is going to
get changed next week. That means I will only have one change with him.
Then I will need to lead the area and teach my next comp.
have been struggling with a draught of investigators... It is hard. My
last area we seemed to always have new people and people to teach. I
mean speaking of my first area elder unruh was in the mission boliton
with a baptism of a family that we worked so hard with. I am so glad
that he met his goal... Now they have the goal to get sealed in the
Trujillo which makes me so happy.
Well I hope grandpa heels well, And that you guys had a great fourth of july.
Love you all
Thats cool to hear about Joshua Mecham in the family history. What is funny is he was baptized on my birthday.
