Aug 24, 2015

Well the biggest news of this week is that I have changes. I am really sad to leave this area. I have made a lot of new friends. I people I will miss the most are my companion elder flores, my penscionista hna. Deydi and Hno antonio and their family. They have been a family away from home. I have had two changes here which is actually a pretty short period of time. Elder Flores and I did not think that either of us were going to have changes so will just continued on working hard. Then saturday we were in a lesson teaching the family Arnao Aguilar about the book of mormon and we were watching the video the testaments when we got the call to know the changes of our district. Elder flores took the phone call in the hallway outside of the apartment of the family. I heard him say things like no your joking, no really, then he came in and told me that I had changes too. We then called hna deydi and hno antonio to tell them the sad news. They did not believe us either. To clarify the truth they then called the zone leaders.

It is really hard to leave the beautiful zone of Jaen Peru.
But most this family. I will miss them so much. I want to return and see them some day.

They tradition of this family when one of the missionaries has changes or is going to end their mission is to throw a lot of eggs on the heads of the missionaries. This Sunday it was my turn to go through this tradition. I sat there helplessly as the smashed 8 eggs on my head. The worst part is some of the eggs ran in to my mouth. That is a horrible taste. We had a little part and drank the tradition Inka cola. 

Besides this Joel is progressing really well. He attended church for his third time. I will not have tthe chance to see his baptism in september but I am more then content with the work I have done in Jaen in the ward of Morro Solar.

Oh yah I gave my second talk in spanish. My companion told me that it was really good and he learned a lot from it. 

I leave today at 1 pm Peru time to take a 6 to 7 hour bus ride to Chiclayo. Then tomorrow I will find out my new area and companion.
