Hello all! This week was so good and luckily I was able to watch all of general conference this weekend in English! As much as I would have loved to watch it in Spanish, I wanted to understand!
This week we had divisiones with our sister leaders for our area! It is only for a day and is essentially just a time to see how we are doing in the mission and how we are working. I was with another North American sister Hermana Essig! It was the best, and was a good change!
I have no time this week but I want you all to know how much I really do love being a missionary! Especially in this last week leading up to Easter. It is incredible everyday to be able to testify of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I really have been called as a representative of Him! I hope you all can come unto Him everyday, because He is the only way to gain true joy in this life. He loves each of you and only hopes for the best for you.
Ps Peruvians LOVE la semana santa the week before Easter! The Friday before Easter for the day after the cruxifiction they have a tradition called 12 platos. They eat 12 plates of traditional Peruvian food varying from sweets to seafood to pastas! Unfortunately, I was not able to indulge in the tradition but from what I hear it is loco. We had a tradition soup with what I was told was shrimp. Well I am in Peru so I should have expected it to be different.... EYES, LEGS AND ALL PEOPLE. I am surprised it wasnt crawling out of my bowl. A peruvian first.
I hope you all had a Happy Easter remember Christ!
