Jan 13 2014

Wow. So much happened this week. It was definitely one of the best weeks of the mission so far. Last monday we had a  district activity and then this morning we had a zone activity in Piura (I forgot my camera cord so I'll send fotos next week). We had way more success this week than ever before. It's like our work is starting to produce the fruit we need to help Morropon grow. Instead of 15 or 16 going to church yesterday, 26 came!! (including the stake president and his sister or somebody). We had three of our investigators come for the first time, one of them is named John. He is 22 years old and he is the only nonmen¡mber in is family. His brother is about to serve a mision so John thought he would check out the church. His family lives in Trujillo and he is only here to work for a few months so that is the time we have to work with him and hopefuly he accepts the challenge to get baptized. He liked the church but still has some doubts but we can work with that. Also one investigator already said that she wants me to baptize her, she is 8 years old and her mom is an active member but her sister is inactive and refuses to listen to us so it's always interesting when we visit her and her mom. We found 8 new investigators this week that we are working with as well. Most are friends or relatives of my convert Hermano Clemente. 
Oh and one night I woke up around 3 or 4 in the morning and felt something on my forehead, I grabbed it, and it was un grio grandote (huge cricket) so I just threw it at the wall and went back to sleep. I have gotten used to the crickets.
On Saturday we went to a chacra (farm) for a few hours to give service and help this family pick fruit and we ate lunch there. It was sooooo hot. But it was really fun and we had a goood time with them and helping them out.
That's all I can remember for now, keep moving forward and say hi to Ethan for me when he gets back!
The heat is getting bad. I feel like Minnesota has days like this in the summer too but not often, just randomly. The intense heat here is constant, every day. And they say that ther is still more coming. And we are also waiting for the rain. Every morning and night there are a bunch of clouds and it might sprinkle but so far we havent had any major storms yet. We did have a few earthquakes this last week. I think on tuesday we were studying in the room on the 2nd floor and the floors starting moving. We stood up and we walked like we were really dizzy. I thought it was cool but some people got super worried. 
Yeah it's weird to think I am just 5 days from my 1/4 mark. I feel like I have a ton left still but I don't feel like Ive been here long. I stil feel new just cause I am still in my first area. My zone leaders and I are really close and I gave them ties, one of them Elder Mamani from Bolivia thinks I am a really good missionary even though I still feel reallly new and not that good. We had to stay the night with them this week because my comp had to go to piura and we went on splits with them in their area to work and I went with a futuro misionero. It was super cool.

Love you all!
