What is up everyone? How has everyone been? I just want to apologize
for not sending out a group email every week. P-Days get crazy and I
forget to write one. Anyways, this week has been pretty awesome. We
witnessed probably one of the coolest things I have ever witnessed. We
were at Fred Meyer getting some stuff and we walked out of the
building and there were these cops standing outside talking to this
guy. Then all of the sudden we start walking to our car and this guy
is sprinting away from these cops. The cops chased him and then they
went around this corner and we don't know what happened after that,
but it was awesome. This place was flooded with police within seconds.
It was crazy. Then, a bunch of people started asking us what was going
on as if we were cops or something. It was pretty funny.

Anyways, we taught Irlinda this week too. I don't know if I have
talked about her before, but she is the sweetest little Peruvian lady
ever! She has been taught for quite a while and wants to get baptized.
The only problem is that she is not married. Her and her "boyfriend"
have been together for like 30 years but marriage is not an option for
them. We have talked to President Ballard about her situation and he
said she could get baptized if they are not in a physical relationship
and we have his permission. We are currently working on getting his
permission for her to get baptized but he is in Peru so that makes it
a little difficult. She is the best though. We love teaching her.

Other than that, we are just living the missionary life. Knocking
doors. That pretty much sums up what we do on a daily basis. Haha it
is the best thing ever. We talk to some pretty interesting people that
way. The other day we met this guy that just got out of jail for
stabbing someone. He is also a drug dealer. Really cool guy though. He
seems to like us. I don't know if we will go back there though.
Anyways, I hope everyone has a great week and keep being awesome!

Happy 2016 everyone!

This has been a pretty awesome week. We go to do a lot of service
because it was New Years and they didn't want us knocking on doors. On
Thursday, we did service for Habitat for Humanity. We helped them
build this apartment building for refugees and people like that. We
helped finish this scaffolding that goes to the top of the complex. It
was pretty scary because the ladder only went to the second floor of
the scaffolding so we had to climb on the outside of this scaffolding
to get to the tap and we weren't strapped to anything so if we fell we
were pretty much dead. It was awesome though. Super fun.

Then on Friday, we didn't get to do a whole lot except for more
service. We went to the old folks home that we usually go to and
played games with them. It was a lot of fun as usual. Oh yeah I forgot
to say, I got a new companion. His name is Elder Casanova and he is
from Idaho Falls but not really. He moved there from California a few
months before he left on his mission. He has been out for almost a
year. We get along really well and we have already gotten a lot of
work done. It is going to be a good transfer.

Other than that, everything else is going pretty good. We are still
looking for people to teach. We are working on cleaning out our area
book and starting fresh in a way. We just want to try to find a lot of
new people to teach since the people we are teaching right now aren't
really progressing. Anyways, I hope everyone has a great week and an
even better 2016. Bye!
