im glad that my advice helped you! ya my new area is great! we actually live above the pension which is super nice! well my week has been a bit slow, i think the first week in a new area is always a bit slow. but last monday we spent all day saying goodbye. at night the daughter of my pension cried so hard!...kinda sad. i only knew her for 6 weeks. tuesday i got my new comp, elder e he is a pretty cool guy we get along well, i spent all morning un packing, that night was the worst night that i have ever had! first off, this place is infested with mosquito's. and the entire night they kept attacking me. and i literally did not get any sleep that night. the next day i was completely exhausted, and i still had to give my class...but it went okay. after we bought king good! then we went to the room of the zone leaders and got me a mosquito net. then i bought some items that i needed. and in the moto taxi i lost my axe 😤.
in the afternoon, there was a dog that kept following us, i think we spent more time trying to run away from it, then actually work..ha. on thursday we visited a guy named m and in his prayer he said "glory to god" like 30 times and when he said "amen" he said "an applause for Christ" then he clapped...ha. that night we went to a appointment with the branch president, and he liked the way i teach, so he gave me a talk for sunday about the book of mormon. on Sat. we had our correlation meeting. and the church is on the 2nd floor of a old building..weird. then we talked to the branch presidents family, and they invited us to snow cones. that afternoon everyone rejected us 😑. there were also 2 girls who were hittin on me...weird... sunday, right before i gave my talk, they changed my not cool! and it was the first time here that i blessed the sacrament so that was cool. the branch is super small, it has like 25 so i think that has been my whole week. i love you guys!!

i want to you read Alma 26:27 when Ammon talks to his brethren when they were getting down on themselves...sorry that happened, but just remember that god doesn't do anything save it be for the benefit of his children. 
my foot is doing a lot better!
Well, its been kinda a fast week cause pday was on tuesdayon wed. i gave my class, then we started exchanges with the zone leaders. i was with elder R from Dominican republic. he is a cool guy, but he likes to control others. we found and had a great lesson with a family in the street. that night we watched a cool video about the spirit world with the penions family. the next day the elders from ferreñafe came over so they could do stuff while the zl was here. after my comp showed me the area in case he had changes. while we were walking on a dirt road we stopped and tried to hit a brick that was far off..ha on friday i did another exchange with Elder falconi from peru he is way cool, then we ate cachangas which is fried dough and a drink called shampoo to support my ward here. then we got off on girls for a long time. at night we played uno and talked until 12. o sat we went to a guy who was going to be baptized, and out of nowhere, the police came, took him, and put him into a car...weird. then we got the new about changes.... it turns out that....both my comp and i have changes. i am going to Morope in Lambayeque and my new com is Elder E. we are co comps. and this change he is finishing his mission. so that was a huge surprise! so that's
been my week. love you guys!!

well i am finally writing! what happened was that my zone wanted to go to a museum, but it wasn't open, so we got permission from president to go today. so almost the entire day we were in Lambayeque at a really famous museum here in chiclayo. it was pretty cool. it was all about the moche culture which was interesting to learn more about the peruvian culture. we went in and watched a short little video, then we got to go through 3 levels of pure artifacts and skeletons that they have found here in Peru. we couldn't take pictures :/ but i took pictures on the outside. its a pretty cool building! it was a cool experience, when we come back, I'm totally taking you guys there! so ya....this past week....last Monday there was an earthquake here in ferreñafe, it wasn't too big, but we totally felt it. i did a exchange with Elder C from Lima, he is a pretty cool guy, i sent a pic of us below. twe did weekly planning, then in the afternoon we went to the offices for interviews with president williams. on the way to the office, the taxi driver was talking on his phone and got pulled over by a my 18 months here in Peru, that was the first time that i have seen the police take action on something...the interviews were good, i LOVE my mission president, every time i have interviews with him i always leave feeling so good. when he asked me to say the closing prayer, when i said "amen" he had tears in his eyes and told me how much my Spanish has improved since i first got here, so that was a huge confidence builder! we had zone conference and it was okay, but to be honest i have had better ones. my foot was starting to bother me again, so we rested a little. we went to church which was good, it was testimony meeting which was fun to hear the testimonies of the members here. then yesterday i did another exchange with Elder D from bolivia. we found a poor dog in the street who was pretty much dead. his bones were showing and he had a HUGE hole in his ear, and there were maggots inside the hole eating his we bought him some bread.  a member came out with us, and he is a physical therapist, so i spent the whole afternoon asking him questions, i think i focused on that more than missionary work...but ya that has been my week for you guys..I love you guys! talk to you guys next week!

well nothing has really happened this week. last Monday i did something that i have never done before...i cut my own hair! it didn't turn out too bad...tuesday some elders and i ordered chicken and talked. wed i did a work exchange with Elder C from Honduras, he is a cool guy, he knows a lot about the bible! we stayed up late talking and he forgot to set the alarm, so we ended up waking up at 8 😐. my foot is doing a bit better. i am not using crutches anymore, but on my work visit, i whacked my foot on a now its starting to hurt again. Ive noticed that the peruvians are super nice people, but when you start talking about God they get all angry and defensive, i don't under stand why. OH and while I was with elder c, we taught a guy that said..."I'm not atheist, but i don't believe in God" how does that flippin work??? so that was kinda funny. but now our area is struggling with investigators we have nothing! new years eve was a fun day. we went and contacted, after we went to a little store and we bought some stuff to make smores. we had to be in our room at 7 so we tried to cook smores, but it didn't turn out to well. but it was still good. we stayed up and they burned replicas which was kinda cool, but kinda scary. so that was fun to chill with my comp for that time....OH! i found out who the new mission pres. is....Pres. Balderrama from Bolivia, so that's cool. well sorry its been so short, but that's been my week. Love you guys!
