First off because it is the first thing on my mind..Peruvians have this fantastic cake here called Caycay. It is the best ever!!!!!! I want you to try some. It is really good and you can only get it in a bakery.
Well not this week but next week we have two more baptisms. I am so excited. We are baptizing the daughter of the brother who was my first baptism. The second baptism is a totally awesome guy named Percy Velázquez. He is only 19 years old and is the man. I pretty much love him.
I am really happy that you received my last letter. I have sent out letters for the girls. I hope that you receive them soon. Pretty soon I will send out another CD with more pictures on it. I don´t know when I’ll get to send it but it will have baptism pictures and zoo pictures. It seems so crazy that basketball season has already started and I have really lost track of time at home. It’s amazing I just don’t really have time to think about that stuff. Every day is so full of work and Spanish that I often forget that I am a gringo!!! Let’s talk about Spanish, right now I can almost understand everything that someone says to me. The only times that I don’t understand is when someone uses a contextual word that I haven’t heard before. For example, a funny story...Very close to where I live and in my area is a silver mine. I had no idea what the word for mine was in Spanish. This lady was going off about how she used to work in one and what her job was and I could not figure out what she was talking about. I understood the words around that word. It was pretty funny. It wasn’t until she started making actions of mining and pointing at different rocks did I figure it out.
So that’s super cool about Aunt Kathryn. I hope that everything is fine with her and that the baby is doing well.
Hey, tell Tegan that I love him if you get a chance... I am praying that he gets the opportunity to return to his mission. Hope he gets feeling better.
Hmm... Other things I’ve been thinking about in Peru ... Dad´s birthday is coming up and I have found something cool that I want to send to him. I promise that I will send amazing things for all of your birthdays just keep in mind that they may not come in time. So the other day I was thinking about what it is going to be like to give my homecoming talk. Hmmmm...Well I think that I might just do the entire talk is Spanish so that no one understands what I am saying. Lol, no I won’t do that.
The 25th of this month might be a change for me out of Canto Chico and into the Selba or jungle. I guess that it is really random so I could stay or go. Amazing how quickly this week went by, I closed my eyes and opened them and found myself right back in front of the computer telling you about another week. Or really I more or less just am telling you about my thoughts. Well so I was thinking about Sundays for our family a lot lately. I realized that our family needs a spiritual rebuke. Sorry... BUT guys we need to dedicate Sundays to the lord, and I know this may be hard but... no more TV, bad music, work and other things that do not bring you to remember the lord. I know crazy tough but I testify that the lord will bless you if you keep this commandment. Just experiment with this commandment this coming Sunday and I promise the blessings will be so large and so great that you won’t want to go back. I love you all and I promise to send photos soon.
