Cerro La PAZ!

Another transfer has come and gone! Turns out I'll be staying here in El Carmen with my same companion, Hermana Landazuri, for these last few weeks! It's kind of amazing how fast time is going!

Well, this week was bit of a rough one with a trip to Trujillo for 2 days, a sick companion and a huge ward activity to plan and execute. Needless to say, we didn't get much proselyting  done :( BUT with the few visits we got in this week we were able to find some awesome people!

The first is a guy named Eric. The Elders called us one day with his referral. So we went and knocked on his door and he let us in! He's 45 and was in the army for years, but for some reason decided to leave. Since then he hasn't really had a stable job and feels like he's missing something! We were able to teach a little and he is super excited. He even came to our ward activity and loved it!! We are super excited to see how he is going to progress!

The ward activity we had was a HUGE sucess!! It was kind of funny actually. We had SOOO many problems getting it pulled off in the first place! No one had keys to the church, there wasn't anything to decorate the chapel, we didn't have plates or cups, and a million other things. BUT it alll finally worked out in the end!! Angles were DEFINITELY  ''round about to bear [me] up''! A bunch of members brought cakes and we played games and ate and had a great time! 

Well, my time's up, but just reallY quick a quote from Abraham Lincon that has helped me this week! It goes kinda like this
''people are just about as happy as they make up their minds to be''. It is SOOO true. Life is hard sometimes. But they are hardships given to us by a loving Heavenly Father to help us learn and grow! And we can choose to be happy or grouchy about them :) It's not easy, but that's why the Savior is there to help and guide us!

Looove you all!!

You know Mount. Doom from Lord of the Rings? It was JUST LIKE THAT. No joke.
