Week 7 September 19, 2016

Hola Madre!
My companion is sweet. I love him, his name is elder Hawks, he has lived in Spain for 13 years so he is very fluent in the language. I am so blessed to have him. On my first day we started contacting and tracking, I gave out my first book of Mormon to a man who has two kids and is married, his children are oh so cute. Anyway this week has been a really crazy week; it feels like the first week in the CCM. I am in training for 12 weeks which is really tough but I am enjoying it. I just want to say that my companion and I got a baptism this week! It was such an amazing experience mom! His name is Louis, he’s 13 years old, the only member in the family. Crazy I know. We will have another one this Saturday. We also brought an inactive back to church, she has been inactive for a long time. It has been such a humbling experience mom. Where I am from and the place I am serving in right now is called Central which is near the coast of Lima, I am near the End of the boundaries of my mission. Its super sad mom, I see hundreds and hundreds of homeless dogs, cats, drunk people you name it, It’s bad! The people are kind of rude or just have a bad attitude...

The language is hard, but I’m just going to stay positive and say that I am growing more and more. My ward is really nice, I teach Clase de Ingles every Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. I also gave a talk on Sunday which was about 9 minutes, it was alright.. I mean they said they got what I was talking about but I just don’t know the language.. haha overall studying and learning more in the gospel has been a blessing, I have been studying in Preach my Gospel a lot in the First lesson about how God is our Loving Heavenly Father. It’s been a true blessing how much I have grown and know that God loves us and is with us every day. Its truly amazing how he answers prayers whether it’s at the moment or later when the time comes. I love you Mom and Dad.
