buenos dias mi familia! como estan? feliz cinco de mayo!

Why do we even celebrate cinco de mayo? all i know is that we eat mexican food sometimes there are cinco de mayo parties where we dress up like mexicans and have a piƱata. haha.  but anyway happy cinco de mayo! 
We are entering winter here in lima.  im so sad about it.  it is literally so cold in the morning and at night.  its probably not really that cold but its super humid and so it feels even colder than it is.  and my companion is from piura which is one of the hottest places in peru where it is never ever cold and so she is dying haha.  this is the first time in her entire life that she has worn a coat or a sweater.  and this is just the beginning.  its going to get even colder! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! 
Also I have officially been here in peru for 9 months! i cannot believe it.  time is going so fast.  and i know this last half of my mission is going to pass even faster.  a few days before my cumplimes, my companion completed 1 month in the mission.  so to celebrate my 9 months and her 1 month, we bought churros on the street.  they were soooo good! filled with carmel inside (and probably a few bugs too haha).  but it made the day feel a little bit special.  

I did something a little crazy this week.  I cut my own hair! I was getting so sick of the dead ends and i definitely do not trust the hair salons here so i just decided to cut it myself haha.  i thought why not? if it turns out ugly who cares.  so i ended up cutting off like 2 inches and it actually doesn't look that bad. so when i get home if anyone needs a haircut i am available haha! 
Sorry i dont have much to report this week.  we are still working with the investigators that i told you about last week.  its sad to see them not progress.  but we did have a really great lesson with V's dad and i think he is becoming more receptive to the gospel. V wants to be baptized but she really looks up to her dad and when he isnt super excited about the idea, she isnt either.  so we are working on getting her dad excited about it too now.  

Tomorrow we have a training with president Erickson and it should be really good.  ill let you know next week the highlights of the training.  and sunday is mothers day!!!! i cant wait to see and talk to you guys.  yes i will be able to use skype again and i should be able to do a pre call the day before to finalize the plans of exactly what time we will skype.  i love you all and will see you soon! (literally).
