Welcome to Surco, Lima! One of the prettier parts of Lima. Sadly, my new area, Surquillo is the ugliest in Surco, but that's okay because it's still nice! My new companion, Elder Chiroque is from Peru. That makes a grand total of four companions. Utah, Argentina, Peru, Peru. I like my new area. I can actually hear my footsteps when I walk. At night it's silent, not 15 drunk guys listening to music, or people getting shot. It's peaceful :)
The ward is small, and the work is hard. we had 21 lessons this week with only 1 new investigador, but this saturday we have a baptism. So that's cool. His name is Francisco. He's a beast. About 60 years old and has a testimony of a rock. He actually reads the book of Mormon. It's a miracle!
My room is small, and on the first floor. So that's sad. But we have hot and cold water! Ups and downs all through life I guess. Uhh... What else.. It's Feb! I honestly don't know where January went. Time is cruzin. Just trying to get to work in the new area. Stay humble, and not go crazy living in a small little room. Elder Chiroque is great. He goes hard on the work, so we'll be alright :) But I gotta emal my momma because it's her birthday this week!
