Elder Guerrero and I have truly enjoyed our first week together. He is from Lima and is 22 years old. He is a convert of 3 years. He is the only one in his family that is a member. We have kept up with contacting people and the work is moving forward.
I'm really enjoying my time Huanuco! The weather has been pretty good and hasn't rained much. We have a great pension. She cooks American food all the time and healthy stuff too. It's great to have things like lasagne, pizza and food we're used to having at home.
I will really miss Elder Burt...he's truly a great missionary and someone who taught me to use every available minute to do missionary work. He was always trying to search for the Spirit in everything we did. I love that guy and can't wait to see him again when we go home together.
Reflection of the week: This week I was studying in Alma 14 and had the chance to read about Alma & Amulek. I was giving a talk in sacrament and was able to share this story. As I was sharing the events of this story I felt the spirit so strong when I was telling about how people had died for believing in Christ and that Alma and Amulek witnessed it all. Also how much they personally had to suffer. I just know how true the BOM is when I read and share the stories of the missionaries who gave it their all. I know as a missionary that we can give it our all. I know that if we put aside our problems and desires then we can experience miracles as missionaries. I love this work. I feel as if I grow every week and feel the spirit more and more. I love you all! #doitforjesus
BTW...I just learned this week how to knit a tie. Also I'm learning to play the Quena. It's a kind of like a flute that is so cool!
