Well.....it would appear as if my last e-mail solicited some worried responses (looking at you Mom),
so first off, I would like to assure all of you that I am doing great!!!
Callao is not what it's made out to be.....well, at least not the part I'm in. I'm in a fairly wealthy part of the district, which means a few gated communities, and not that many....uhh....ruffians.
So, everything's very peaceful and tranquil.
Now....to inform you all a bit about the work.
Things are going great!!! We're finding new people left and right!!! The majority of names that we plan for daily are people that we have found while I was here!
Right now we're teaching Daniel, he's our investigator who's progressing the most. His girlfriend is a member, and he wants to learn more. He is 25 years old and pretty excited to learn, we should be planning his baptism for next week, or the week that follows.
In other news.......I can think about 3 other announcements.....
Number 1: We've got a great ward missionary here. His name is Nikola, his parents are Italian, and he's the best. He's pretty much a third companion. He's with us about 6 hours a day, most days a week, the only downside is he'll be leaving on his mission in a few months.....but until then, he's a big help.
Number 2: We've had some changes with the mission finances....so now we have to note every purchase we make on a sheet.....from a 3 cent gum, to lunch, dinner, toilet paper, soap......everything.....I'm assuming it stems from the fact the President Larson was an accountant......
Number 3: We'll be changing houses soon.....the President inspected our room and said that it would probably be better if we changed houses due to a club located directly beneath our house.....and he's probably right....
Yesterday a 30 year old man named Danny said he was going to bring his friends to church......and when he showed up there was like a group of 10 kids, spanning from the ages of 8-12, following him.
Apparently when he gets home from work he plays soccer in the street with them, and they're best friends......so we'll see if we can't get some new families there!!!!!
Anyway!! That's about it!!! I love you all, and I'm doing great!!!!!
Here's me and Ramirez celebrating Halloween!!! This was right before an activity we had with investigators and less actives!!!
and here's all of our chapel.....it's really tiny......
The sacrament hall is to the right, and the classes are to the left.
