half way theere! (through the CCM) hah time is flying so fast now its crazy. i get semi sick when i think about leaving this place haha my spanish is not going to be anywhere near ready but its cool. I am still loving it here. i love being in the Peru CCM because it´s so small you get to know everyone! This week was AMAZING! complete turn around from last week. i cant even explain hah we had two baptisms this week which i know is only with fake investigators but they do not make it easy on us and me and hermana hailstone have been working our behinds off! we have been working so hard to strengthen our companionship. we started reading the spanish book of mormon together and we are already through 2 nephi! i feel like it has been strenghtening our relationship so much. we have seen HUGE improvements in our lessons! so yeah, this week has been the best ever! hah thank you for your prayers. I KNOW they have been helping me! i feel like i don´t have anything really to say hah this week was just great! the weather is getting warmer but not too warm yet. we have been so blessed with the best weather ever. i love studying outside because it is the perfect temperature! they do not celebrate thanksgiving here (obviously) but we are having a ´nice´dinner tomorrow and a devotional from Provo which i got to ask a question in. so i´m excited for that! and they started putting up christmas lights around the CCM so that will be fun! the grounds here are gorgeous! i love it. i wish i could send pictures to you all! we found a starbucks today in Lima. kinda was like the states for a second haha. im getting pretty good at volleyball haha we play it every day after hermana sloan kills us with her work outs! i tried playing futbol with the latins but it was just a gigantic fail. not happening. hmm what else is exciting here...we found out what is making us sick haha its the juice. hermana sloan dedicated a whole day to finding out what is was. she drank only juice for breakfast. ate only rice for dinner. and had only meat for lunch. by the end of the day the conclusion was its the juice. so now we avoid it at all costs haha. i wish i could think of more to say but i cant so i will just leave you with something i thought was cool this week!
an elder in my district (elder greggson) shared this with us. we memorized the first vision this week and in the first vision. the first word God says in THIS dispensation is Joseph. that just shows how personally our Heavenly Father knows us. he knows us all So well and so personally. i thought that was super cool.
thank you all so much for your support and love! i know your prayers are helping me emensley! i love you all so much and pray for each of you everyday! til next week!
