This week was a roller coaster to say the least. Elder Thorpe and I have been working REALLY hard to pull off a group wedding and a big ole baptism. Those efforts have included a lot of lessons, a lot of phone calls, and a lot of problems and miracles. Just to give you an idea, we had to send missionaries to Aija, Ancash and Namora, Cajamarca to get birth certificates out of a small Catholic church (feel free to Google maps those places). It looks like we are going to do it though.
It is weird to be doing the "lasts." They have been a quick two years. They have been amazing, and life changing, and indescribable. It's strange to be ending my service here but I have a lot of stuff to do at home as well. I can't imagine what not serving a mission would have been like. I am so glad for these experiences that I have had. I know that this is the Lord's work and His Church and it has been amazing to be a part of it.
My family will be here Friday. We are going to be here in Moche through Sunday. Monday, we are going to Cartavio. Tuesday, we are going to eat lunch with the Marlers and going to the temple. Wednesday we are going to Chimbote and Thursday, we are going to Chao and then headed home by 10:30pm
Once again, you are all more than invited to my homecoming talk on Sunday Aug 30th at 1pm and to my house afterward. I can't wait to see you all soon!!!!!
