Bueno, these past few weeks have been really good! Sorry if I haven't written much these past few weeks, because they've been crazy. This week especially has been crazy. We've been preparing a few people for baptism, had a work visit this week, a training by President Erickson and Elder Niños birthday. But it's all been really good!
Thursday was Elder Niños birthday and a few of the members threw this little party for him in their house, it was a good time. But what made it the best, just like any Peruvian birthday, was when we cracked raw eggs on his head jaja. That is easily the best part of the birthdays here! I forgot my camera but I'll try to send some from Elder Niños.
On Wednesday and Thursday I had another work visit with Elder Brimhall so that was fun. It;s always kind of weird to be with another gringo for me now jaja.
We also had a special training with President Erickson this Thursday about "lifting our voices" and our potential to become like our Heavenly Father, it was really good and it is so important that we as members of the Church help all people know the divine potential that they have as literal children of God. It was a great training and has really improved our teaching this week as we've put it in practice.
Mami Chio, my mission mom, left with her family this Thursday to go to Trujillo for the temple open house. We talked to her a little bit yesterday and it turns out that one of the members of the first presidency has already gotten there for the dedication in a week and a half. Its a super sweet temple and its going to be a huge blessing for Peru! I'm way excited for it to open up even though it is way far from my mission. Temples are so great and such a blessing that the Lord gives us, it makes me happy to know that God loves us so much that He has provided the way for us to return back to Him through the temple, it is great.
Anyways, that's about all I got for this week, sorry it's so short jaja.
¡Que tengan un excelente semana!
