Well I don’t know what the Lord wants but I do know that it is for my good. Unfortunately I will not be leaving for Peru. I am a little bummed but…I will go, I will do.
The MTC is pretty fun, I really like learning Spanish and I feel like I can say quite a bit of things now.
Some news...because I am not leaving this week I get a special opportunity. The U.S. embassy is hosting the Peruvian Ambassador and He want to come to the MTC. I get to meet him and spend time with him this Thursday. Maybe I will ask him to get me a Visa, LOL.
I love getting the packages and letters. They really brighten my day.
Tell me what you know about the Visa thing if you know more than me. This is all I know: The Lady in the travel office told me that my paperwork had been “lost.” She, after I asked, told me she had no idea of an expected time they might get it. One of the three things can happen now. I can get my visa within the next week or so and still go to the Peru MTC. I can stay here for 6 more weeks, and hopefully get my visa, or if it doesn’t come in by that time I will be reassigned. Pray hard that my Visa comes quick! J I just keep or I have been keeping my mind off of this and throwing myself more forcefully into my work.
If you could I would love you forever if you could send me some more ties. I quickly found that I need (crossed out) want more.
It was nice to hear your voices again. I thought that it was funny that I said, “Hi, this is your son, Elder Harris.” Don’t be too mad about this whole Visa thing. Now that I think about it, the Lord has a plan.
Please tell Grandma Harris that I received her letter and that I will write her back soon. Tell Grandma, Grandpa Murphy and the Messers that I also love them a ton, and Thank you for the letters! Here are some pictures. I will send more I promise. I just have no time...work, work, work. I love it. No other time has felt like this.
Tell me how home is and do it in ‘Dear Elders’. They are so much easier on all sides.
I miss you and love you,
P.S. It is starting to get cold here. If you get a chance can you send my black coat, my mobster one, not because of that but because it is warm.
P.S.S. So the ring stands for “Haz Lo Justo” This is a statement in the command form of Spanish. It translates to “Do the Just”. We laugh because it is almost like a “Do the Just or Else.” Thought it would be fun. (Elder Jaren Harris sent a ring that looks like the CTR green rings they give out in primary to each of his sisters, Mom & Dad – fun surprise!)
