So on Wednesday, a member of the first quorum of the Seventy came. (Sorry non-members, you've got some googling to do.) His name is Elder C. Scott Grow. All of the missionaries in Trujillo and north got to go. I am as north as it gets so my whole zone got to spend the night in Trujillo so that we didn't have to wake up at 4am to get going.
In Trujillo, they have running water, paved roads, and stores that sell things. I want to go to there.
Me with a random street donkey. This picture goes out to my brother CJ whose birthday is this week.
E Grow gave a phenomenal talk. He talked to the missionaries from 9am to 4pm. Then all of the leadership from all of our wards came and we all got to listen from 7 to 9. It was a long day but incredibly great. One of my favorite things that he said was: If we focus on re-activating the less active members on our missions, the Lord will remember the people who we convert and help to keep them active.
Me at a huaca. That means a giant pile of dirt with cultural significance. It was way cool and we had a sweet view of Cartavio.Something else that is awesome is that we are teaching a family! Their last name(s) is/are Portales-Atoche. We have been teaching the mom (Carmen), the son (Cristian), and the daughter (Ciobeli). Yesterday at church, they all showed up. Even the dad who we havent even taught yet. It was so cool to see their whole family there. They are really our focus right now.
We have so many people that are so close to baptism. Get ready to hear about success.
Love you all,
