hello everyone! ah i love getting your emails! it makes me so happy every week and its just what i need to help me stay strong here. this week was better than last week and every day gets better. we found 3 new people to teach and they are so great and ready to hear the gospel. i wish i could contribute more in lessons but it will come. its really cold here in lima and i wish i had warmer clothes but its supposed to be warming up this month so im excited for that. i heard that in november they have tons of little mini earthquakes here. very small but still, that should be exciting! my companion is great and she has been teaching me a lot about patience and hard work. our area is a little bit difficult because there are only a few members and so we are pretty much starting from scratch trying to find people. we are the first missionaries assigned to this area and so when we find people to teach it is so great! we have about 6 investigators right now but only one of them has actually attended church. i will keep you updated on their progress. thanks for your prayers i can definitely feel them here! some scriptures that have helped me this week are d and c 90:24 and 1 nephi 3:7 I love you all and am so grateful for all of you! i love the people of peru and know that this is where i am supposed to be!
