September 28

This week was fun, but it was another just good work week. Besides a little cold everything was normal this week. It is hard in this area right now because we have a limited pool of people we are teaching. I should not be complaining because I received an email from my friend about her mission in europe and they have absolutely nothing. The most important thing right now for us is that we must find more people to start teaching. So we are talking with everyone in the streets. knocking doors (I have knocked every door in my area) the thing is every time we knock the door it will be someone else that opens. One day we left with a member named Guillermo, a really cool member in  the ward that called and asked us if he could leave with us to visit. It is such a blessing to have him in the ward, most the times we have to beg some people to come with us, but he called us. Anyway we were with and we went to the first appointment, but it fell through... then we heard some loud music in a house with someone singing karoke. Normally we would have just passed by the house because many of times there are people having parties in their houses getting drunk, but Guillermo stopped and told us that it was his friend. We knocked on the door, and a man named Santos camed out to greet us. After some talking, we were able to explain a bit about the book of mormon. And we were able to set up another appointment for this next friday. I hope that we can do our best to help hno Santos progress and build him up so that he will choose to come join the fold. THe funny thing is that he only accepted the next visit him if Guillermo and maybe us too sang karoke with him after the lesson. We will see what will happen...

I am super excited for this next general conference. We will see who will be called as the next apostles. I just hope I will be able to see it again in english because one I can understand it better and two I will actually here their voices. Once you know their voices it is just frustating to listen to translater. How can they match the voice of the prophet or the strong call to repentence from Elder Holland, or the wisdom and hilarilousness of Dieter F Uchtdorf. If not the meaning our still the same. I am just excited. Really excited.

This week the ward had a Luau which was really funny. The only sad thing was peruvians always start really late so an 8 o clock activity starts at 9 or 10. We took some pictures and had fun while we could before we returned to the room before the party actually started. But all in all it was fun.

For the Bitner family, Elder Anderson sends his love, Especially for Whitney. haha.
Love you all
