I am in Huacho... like when I was in Barranca, which was 4 hours out from Lima, now I'm 3 hours out... but it's a great area and a great district. My companion is Elder Alanes from Bolivia. He has about 16 months in the mission and is a really good missionary. He also has just a couple of years as a member but he's a really smart guy. It was a great area in Puente Piedra but we have the goal of breaking the new record of weeks in a row of baptizing. There's lots of work to do, it will be great! We have 4 companionships in the district: us, the sister training leaders, Elder Prisbrey with a new missionary from here in Peru and Elder Drysdale and Elder Lara, other than Elder Basilio, the rest have a fair amount of time in the mission. It seems like president wants to get things going in Huacho so we will make sure that happens!
Elder Rasband is coming this Friday! This Sunday is stake conference, which is a little frustrating because that's these two weeks without baptisms but it's fine we're going to do great!
It's not a huge city, but we're near the center and the area is really flat no hills. It's near the ocean like 5 minutes away. I'm glad to hear that things are doing well there and that you took the youth to the temple. Our district went to the temple on Saturday and we were talking with a family of recent converts on Sunday about how they went to the temple for the first time this week and he said his wife spotted a family outside the temple who were there for their sealing and she just stood there watching in awe, they really want to get sealed! So a little less than a year from now they're going to be right there just like the other couple they saw, it is awesome.
I finally have a pentionist again, but it's not a lady it's a man. He lives with his mom who is really old and sick, he is takes care of her 24-7 and his name is Nefi, he's super cool. We found a few new families and we're excited to see them progress.
anyway thanks nos vemos les amo
