March 23, 2015

Hello everyone.

This was a fast week it felt like, even though we didn’t have very many lessons that we taught. One day, we had our interviews with the president and 2 other days we were doing service for a hospital that was doing surgeries for kids and babies that have a cleft pallet. It’s called operation smile. I’m not sure if they also have that in the states as well. Anyway, I also had a day were I had a fever cuz I think I ate some bad meat. However, it was only for a day and I’m fine now.

As for the family that got baptized, they had friends and basically home and visiting teachers before they were even baptized just because they have been assisting so long. It was actually kinda funny because when we announced the baptism, a lot of people were surprised because they had thought that they had already been baptized. Also, as far as Yosimara and Anthony go, we are still just trying to get their papers ready so we can set a date for their marriage and then baptism. However, I don’t believe I’ll be here to see their baptism.

Ok, so with my pensionistas, it’s basically like the one we have for lunch and dinner is the same lady and she lives about 10 minutes (walking) from our house. Then we have a separate lady we go to for breakfast who basically lives like 3 houses to the side of our house. But we don’t live with either of the 2. With the markets, it’s kinda like people run their own markets on the first floor of their houses. However, they are pretty small and only have the basic necessities. But it is nice because it’s like every few houses there’s a market so we don’t have to walk very far. They also specialize in different things like bakeries, pharmacies, and other random stores. They also have supermarkets but they aren’t very big at all. Not nearly the size of the ones in America. At least the biggest ones they have in Peru are all in Lima. It’s nice, though, because there is a bakery right below our house.

Also, something pretty sad happened. So a sister that was serving here finished her mission in December. However, this last week we received news that a car had hit her and she died. I didn’t personally know her but that made a lot of people (especially her friends here) really sad. 

Well that’s all I really have for this week. I love you guys and I’m glad to hear you’re all doing well. Until next week!
