Hello family!

This week was pretty dang awesome. First off, on Wednesday, we had to travel to Cusco for a conference with Elder Useda from the First 70 so that was pretty dang awesome to hear from him. With the conference and all the traveling, though, it took out 3 whole days of our week so as far as lessons go not much has happened this week. Also, when we got back, we were all super car sick and exhausted but now I feel great. The reason for that is because the next day (even though we were all still exhausted) we had our baptism.

In the baptism, we baptized 4 people. One of them was from the other elders who baptized a little boy who had to get baptized again because the old bishop lost his records but the other 3 were from me and my comp. We baptized 3 kids from this family we are teaching called the Yuca family. One of them is a 17 year old boy who is also going to travel with the ward this Wednesday to Lima to do baptisms for the dead in the temple there. We are now trying to put a date with the mom and one of the daughters. Also, we are still working with one of the sons and the dad to be able to teach them but they are all progressing really well. Also the oldest sister who got baptized asked me to baptize her so that was a cool experience. It was kinda funny, though, because the water from Espinar is green and so we baptized everyone in green water.

But later today we have to travel again to Sicuani so we can have a zone conference with the mission president tomorrow. I also have to give a training on stress so that will be pretty dang interesting. But that’s about all I’ve got for this week; I’ll send you pictures of the baptism next time. But I’m glad to hear you’re all doing well and I’ll talk to you next week!

 Love you all!

Elder Halverson
