That’s right! I’m now in Cerro de Pasco. I am now serving in the highest stake in the world! I think we are at about 14,000 feet above sea level. I got a phone call last night with the information that I was going to have an emergency transfer. (An emergency transfer just means it is not on the regular transfer day.) I asked where I’d be going, and they told me that I’d be off to the Cerro de Pasco Zone in Cerro de Pasco itself as a District leader over about fourteen missionaries, including my Zone Leaders and the Hermanas. It is going to be quite the adventure, but I am so excited to be here! I’ve been wanting to be in Cerro my whole mission and the Lord has given me the chance.
There unfortunately isn’t much to report from the last week in San Pedro de Cajas. It was a very normal week. We were going to have a baptism this coming Sunday, but I’ll have to wait and see if it really happened. Elder Calle better write me and tell me what happened… I was so excited to get going with that area… Oh well! That’s what happens in the mission!
My traveling was really quite standard. It was only about two hours long and was like traveling in mid-Utah. I’m actually in a city, FINALLY, and even though I’ll miss the poor sheep from San Pedro, it is nice to have a change (even though I cried last night thinking about how wonderful San Pedro has been to me …). I left San Pedro at about 6:45am after waking up Maria my pensionista to say good-bye and get one last picture with her. We had a really bumpy ride, but I made it to Tarma. Then I instantly headed off to Cerro de Pasco in a little tiny car with my two gigantic suitcases. So, now I’m here!
I have no idea what we’re going to do for our P-Day today, but hopefully it will be cool. I’m companions with my old District Leader, Elder Cifuentes from Chile. We’ll have a blast.
I finally got my Easter package last week and I have got to say that everything that was sent was perfect. Everything was in there, and I love the music that I was sent.
General Conference was kind of crazy. I only got to see Sunday Morning (in Spanish, which wasn’t the same for me…) out of all five sessions of conference because our Branch President changed his mind about where we were to go. I’d just love to have you send all of conference in English and Spanish on DVDs, if possible.
I’m still waiting for all of my DearElder letters and my other package… They just replaced our Administration Secretary so it should come soon, I hope.
Love you loads and talk to you later!
