I’m Off to Go to Lima to Train

I’m writing early today.  So, I got a call pretty late last night (well, 10:10 is pretty late for missionaries) from the President.  He told me that I had a new assignment, to train a new Elder! I have no idea who it is going to be, but it will be a new missionary that is just starting the mission.  So, today I’m headed off to Lima for the training meeting, to pick up my companion, and return to San Pedro de Cajas.  We leave at about 11:00 this morning, and should arrive in Lima at 6:00 or 7:00 tonight.  I’m looking forward to meeting my new comp.  I just hope that I can be a good example and teach him correctly.
