February 8, 2016

This week was fun... nothing to different and out the ordinary... Oscar has been helping us out a lot... It is so cool living with him. He changed from one coming with jeans and a t shirt until the day after his baptism where he showed up and surprised us with a white shirt and tie... He is cool. He is even trying to convince his dad to help him go on a mission. His mom is super excited and said that she will do all she can to support him. Now our job is helping him learn the lessons and grow in his testimony. I mean he is still super new to the church and only yesterday was he confirmed, but he was also made a priest... He will be able to bless the sacrament this next week. It is really rewarding to see the changes in people. Oscar is an example in my life. He makes going on the mission worth the while.

This friday we celebrated the birthday of elder isuiza with all the members and investigators. Let just say this day I ate so much junk. Every house that we went to either invited us to soda or cake or chicken with rice.. One did all three. People here in Peru loves birthdays.. They are basically more important than christmas. It was also a zone conference so they gave him even more cake there. At night, we went to the house of some recent converts, they prepared some food then told us to wait outside so that they could set up a surprise... We waited like five minutes, the when we entered the house the had decorated with balloons and a homemade piƱata and music. It was funny watching my companion trying to break it open... At the end of the day the smashed an egg on his head... It is tradition..

This week an investigator named Vanessa Cubas attended the baptism of the ward pimentel. She loved it... We were not able to attend with her, but after the service the elders from pimentel called us and told us she was there looking for us. We hurried to the church and she was super excited. She told us the she now has made the decision to be baptized. She wanted to be baptized the next week, but she still needs to attend another week and we need to teach more of the lessons. She is a very humble lady that is a Jehovahs Witness. She told us after attending church for the second time that she feels that everything we have taught is true... Everything is coming together... Vanessa Cubas is progressing and Reina and her family will be getting married in a week and baptized in 2. The work is really exciting right now.

Well my comp is leaving and here comes elder Waddel of Idaho... Lets see how it all goes.

Feliz cumpleaƱos mom

I Love you to death.... miss you so much

Elder Mecham
