May 26, 2014

Sorry about not writing you last week; our internet was really terrible last week and nothing was loading.  
Anyway it’s funny about you guys dieting and stuff. If you really want a good diet just move here. XD I eat a ton and I’m still losing weight.  
Our week here has been kind of slow, too. One day the other companionship got sick so we had to help them out for a good chunk of our day. There was a cool fair for 2 days for the anniversary of the high school here. Each class was dressed in traditional clothes and was dancing. Consequentially, everyone was gone to be in the party. We also lost power here for 2 days which was a little scary when we went to dinner. So basically for those 2 days we couldn’t work after it got dark because it gets a little sketchy. We had an activity planned for the branch on one of those days but had to postpone it till later this week. One of our investigators was talking to a member and she told us that she wants to be baptized along with her 2 daughters which would be awesome. The only problem is that it’s hard to get an appointment with her with a member because she is always working and whenever we do have an appointment we can’t get a member to go.   
But yea also Sunday was really intense yesterday because our church attendance has been dropping recently so all the missionaries here gave talks on the Book of Mormon because we are trying to get the leaders to do stuff and gain testimonies as well as all the members so we burned them a bit and hopefully now they can see why this stuff is so important.  
Me and my companion are doing good together and are doing our best. Sorry if it looked like we were really trunky. XD It was just when he talked to his family they made him a little trunky. Oh, also as far as the other cities go, Ayaviri is like a 30 minute drive in a van and Juliaca is one and a half hours in the other direction from Choquehuanca. But yea, all’s well here in our little pueblo. Also you’re right about being able to understand the people you work with because the people here have the equivalent to a redneck accent but with Spanish.  
Anyway I love all you guys and I hope you’re enjoying the warmth. We had a cold front blow in and it is absolutely freezing here. We sleep in 40 degree weather every night even in our adobe house so we really have to bundle up. Anyway till next week everyone!
