"God bless the USA"!!! I love the 4th. It is my favorite holiday for sure, but, it is not quite the same here in Peru. Well, in fact, it really isn't a holiday at all, but oh well, you know.
This week was really LAME!!! So this Email will also be really lame. Sorry in advance.
Tuesday I waited for my new companion to get here. All day I literally did nothing. Just waited. Well actually, I got a lot of reading done in Jesus the Christ and finished it this week. It is a really interesting book. My companion got here at 5 in the evening and his name is Elder Salvatierra. He is going home in 4 months and is not afraid to just tell someone that, "Ya I am going home." He is TRUNKY - - is what I am saying. He doesn't really want to work and so I have that on my plate now.
Wednesday all the District Leaders had a training with President Harbertson and I learned so much. I can really tell that he is a man called of God. He has helped me grow so much spiritually. I will forever be indebted to that man.
Thursday, Friaday, and Saturday were all the same. I got the opportunity to study the whole day. I seem to get the chance a lot more as of late. My companion likes to sleep the whole day. I feel pretty trapped but I will continue to set an example and be the most obeident that I can.
I know that this Christ's church on earth today. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his son Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, that through the teaching in that book we can become the type of people that God wants us to be. I know that we can live with God and our families forever. I know that through prayer we can talk with God. I know that He answers our prayers. I know that Christ is my Savior and that through his atonement I can be cleaned from my sins. I love this gospel and I love this work. I love my Savior.
Keep sending prayers my way. I am praying for you guys always!
