So, this week was fairly standard.
Well, not really at all. First and foremost, the office forgot to let us know that Elder Nunez was going to have to go to Lima for three days to do his immigration stuff. So, all of my plans for Wednesday were just thrown out the window — Elder Jones’ companion also had to leave to Lima, and they told me that “we have appointments all day long and they are so secure that you can’t miss any one of them.” So, we worked in Yacamancha, and took care of their appointments. Unfortunately, only two of them panned out, but what can you do? But, at least I know that other companionships struggle with appointments, too.
Anyway, Jones and I had a good time. It was really nice to spend a few days with someone that can speak English. It was a good break from almost 100% Spanish. We really enjoyed each other’s company, and we are pretty good friends.
My birthday box arrived. I love every single thing in it. The list of contents was still in the box, and everything was there. Elder Nunez and I have enjoyed the treats.
Our P-Day last week was rather fun. We cooked a ton of food at the old Pioneer’s house as a district, and we had a blast. We cooked spaghetti noodles, made REAL french fries (meaning we actually cooked them well enough for them to be crispy), we fried cut up hot dogs, and we cooked some really tasty chicken patties. There was SOOO much food and we didn’t finish it all. The best part though, was that the sister told me when we finished that we’d make something even more “rico” (rich or fancy) and I couldn’t help but laugh. I’m really loving it here.
The work is true, and I know it. I have no doubt that the Lord is helping me though each day. It has been a rough ride some of the time, and I can hardly believe that my birthday is in a few days. But, that’s how it works — two years is really really short, but it brings a big change in those that serve, and those that are served. I love it a lot.
Well, anyway, I’m off for an adventure. Hope that everything is well back home! Wish Dad and Grandpa a Happy Birthday! Have a great week!
love, Elder VK
