Week 58

September 19, 2016

Pictures from last week and her trip to Iquitos (Her computer wouldn't recognize her camera last week!)

At the Iquitos airport with Hermana Walker and Hermana Roque

My roommates for three days - Hermana Poma and Hermana Brotherson

Training Meeting

So this week was pretty great! I feel like I say that about every week, but I don't know what else to say ... because every week IS great! 

Just a random turtle picture!

So this week I went to Tarapoto again. We had a leadership meeting with President and Hermana Li and the leaders of Moyobamba and Tarapoto.  Anyways, we were on the car ride there and the driver was listening to some not very good music so we asked him if we could put in our USB to listen to music.  He said sure and put in one of the Elder´s USB. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir starts playing super loudly.  The Elder told the driver he could change it to another song on the USB, but the driver didn't hear, so we spent about one and a half hours in the car listening to Motab!  The Elders all fell asleep and so the driver changed the music back!  hahahahah.
On the way back, the police pulled us over and we were all stressed cause we didn't have our IDs on us.  Usually the police here ask for the IDs of everyone in the car.  When the policeman saw all of us missionaries in the car ... he told the driver to just keep going! Huge blessing! One Elder said it's because were "Angelitos Mormones" (little Mormon angels)!

This week a new family we have been teaching came to church! The wife had come with us a few times before, but this time her whole family came! They're named Esmerita and Juan Carlos. Esmerita is really excited to get baptized but Juan Carlos is a little iffy. He doesn't really understand a lot of what we´re teaching, so we've been trying to explain everything really simply. We talked about marriage last week and they're going to pray about it. Let's hope they make the right decision!!

Orlando and Elsa are still going strong! Orlando is going to go to the municipalidad (I don't know how to say that in English) to ask about his divorce papers, we have the faith that they will come in this month!

With Orlando and Elsa!

We´ve had a few rough days where we haven't been able to find anyone at home, but it has really helped us look through the ward directory and find all the members who aren't coming to church, which has been super helpful! By looking for those members, we've been able to talk to their neighbors or family and invite them to church! We've found some cool people that way!

Not sure why the wall says Tarapoto when we are in Moyobamba!  Ha!

Anyways, I don't have much more to say!   I'm going to send all the pictures from last week and this week! whooo!

P-Day FUN!  Our zone went on a hike to Morro de Calzada!  It is just a giant hill that you can hike ... with a beautiful view!

Hanging out with Hermana Inca again!!

Love you all!
Hermana Gurney
