Okay so this time is going by way too fast! I have been in Puno for 124 days and I am leaving tomorrow. CRAZY!! At least I am leaving this amazing place with a bang.
This week we have had amazing success and we have met amazing people. I love it here so much and I can not express how blessed I am to be here and to meet all of these amazing people and allow them to change my life. Last week, I mentioned a man that we had invited to an activity not thinking he´d show and then come to find out.. HE DOES! He asked us questions and all that. So this week we decided to pass him to the elders in our area. We felt that he would grow so much more with them and have so much more success. It was a very hard thing to do and it seemed almost impossible, but finally we decided that if it was the right thing to do, then Heavenly Father would bless us... and he has. Heavenly Father works in such marvelous ways. After passing this man to the elders, we have found a whole family of 6 who are ready for baptism, a young girl who wants to get baptized before the first lesson, and another woman who accepted a baptism date the first visit. I never thought that we could meet such amazing people who just seem... READY... It is amazing. I love this work here and I am so blessed to have served in Puno and I can not wait to see where the rest of the mission takes me. I am learning so many things every day and loving this journey more and more. I wish I could share it with you... well I mean more than just these words. Peru is such a beloved country and Heavenly Father has a VERY special place in his heart for these people. I JUST KNOW IT. I hold a very special place in my heart for them too.
I love all of you. You are all bright lights in my life that help me to keep trudging forward. I wish I could perfectly express my love for each one of you because you are all so special to me.
Always remember who you are and remember your worth. Not your worth to the world but your worth to a loving Heavenly Father, a King. I love you all and I pray that you can all share your light with the people around you because when we share our light, the world can be a happier place!
I love you all from the bottom of my heart.
Les Amo y Cuidense
Con Mucho Amor
