Well, what I know about Peru so far. There are dogs everywhere! You can`t flush toilet paper down the toilet. It`s dirty. The food is super good. And the winner....nobody speaks English. Just kidding, I already knew the last one. But some people that speak a little English will think there being helpful and translate super easy words for me....I`m like yes thank you, but I know what that meant. But the people are really good. But there are so many things here that look like they`re from the 70s. A lot of music. But they are really weird, like the house aren`t really nice, but they`ll have like iPhones and flat screen TVs. It`s weird.
My companion is Hermana Rios. She is from Panama and has been in the mission for 11 months. I`m her first child. She doesn`t speak much English, so it`s been a good time. We have contacted a lot of people, but nobody is married, so that`s a problem. We have taught a few lessons, and yesterday we got a baptismal date from an investigator named Esperanza. That was exciting. We had a conference the other day with Bishop Davis from the bishopric presidency. It was good and I got to see Elder Halverson!
Our area is called Chancay, it`s not as shabby as other areas and we are really close to the beach. There is also a castle in our area. There are only 8 missionaries in our zone. Our zone and our district are the same. So that`s pretty fun. I`m picking up Spanish, but I still have a looooong way to go. Well yeah...that`s it. Have a great week!
