Jan 26 2015

Hey everybody this week was pretty great. My companion Elder Arce and I had some pretty cool-interesting experiences this week. While talking to a lady in the street one guy yelled Jose Smith doesnt exist, he's not in the bible! We just said hi to him as he passed by in the street but his remark caught the attention of another person that was inside the house and she came out to talk to us and said she listened to missionaries many years ago and attended church but never got baptized and she wanted us to come back to teach her again. And her neighbor his an inactive guy we had never met but we found him and started teaching all his family who are nonmembers. Because of the remark about Joseph Smith from the guy in the street we were able to find four new people to teach and one more who is inactive. They are great, very excited to learn more and return to church so let's see what happens.
Jairo and Brenda (two investigatores) attended church again for their 4th and 3rd time respectively. Brenda still has to get married to her less active boyfriend but they're both trying to get married quickly, here it's super difficult and expensive. Jairo is the 18 year old son of two recent converts who is going to church every week and meeting with the YSA in their activities. He's busy with exams in the university so we couldn't teach him much but this week we will try setting up a baptismal date. 
I'm doing great here. Hope everyone is doing well! Have a great week!!
Love you guys!!!

Hey Mom! unfortunately, I have not seen any llamas :( but I have seen lots of donkeys, iguanas, and monkeys. Ah yeah 80s and 90s is about what it is here every day I think. They say that it's been flirting with 38-40 degrees Celcius lately, thats almost 100 or more. But I dont know if they're exagerrating or not. Sullana is always sunny and the 1st counselor of the bishopric here says the people here get worried when the sun is covered by clouds for more than a day or two because some think it could be the Second Coming.
