Week 74: extraño al arroz, August 15, 2015

This week has been different.

This week we had some great lessons. We were able to teach a sister to help er stay excited for baptism, we were able to talk about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and help her over come some nerves and keep moving forward. Shes excited to get baptised soon. Then we were able to teach another sister named Coti, we went over the bapitsmal interview questions, and she knew em all, and answered with Faith and testimony, so were real excited for her as well.
Anyway, Thursday morning i got on a bus to head up to Trujillo. I stayed in El Carmen for one month, then i got changed, and for a few days i had to say goodbye. Had a good preparation day with the zone, then some great days for proselyting, On Wednesday at night some sisters threw me a birthday party because they werent going to be able to do it on tbhe 24th because im not going to be there. So here is a picture of what they cooked for me! In SPanish its called, arroz a la jardinera con pollo frito, y cuando pica mucho mejor. Fried chicken and rice with a kick. Anyway, its been weird, im spending much more time with president rios now and we had the opportunity to travel back to Viru, the area where i have had the most time. Love iut there and exciterd to keep working there.
Anyway, not a whole lot of time left, love you all have a great week!

No worries for not writing me, its my fault. Anyway, things are going awesome, really ejoying the work. Its really different, but i really do enjoy it. its really different, but i am getting used to it. We had some fun today, went to some really old really coolruins, and on friday we were able to go to Viru and have a great day there, so after 7 mnonths there, and being gone for a month, i was able to go back, and i love it.
