Hey guys its Keato,
So another good week like always. Last pday we played basketball. YYYYEEEEESSSS!!!! it was awesome. Elder McGhie plays basketball so last Monday we went and played a little two on two with Elder Stone and Elder Quispe, it was the best. I forgot how much I love basketball and realized how bad I am. I am so out of shape, I can’t shoot, I couldn’t even make a lay up, but it was still really awesome. So the high light of the whole week was the conference with President Ardila and Elder Waddell from the Quorum of the 70. He’s the one that spoke in conference about missionaries and the missionary in Arizona. It was the greatest conference ever. He basically ninja attacked every single missionary with his spiritual ninja throwing stars. It was amazing. He talked about so many interesting things and how important we are as missionaries. At one point, it was his time to speak so he stood up and said, I don’t know what I’m suppose to tell you all so I’m going to talk until the spirit tells me what to say. And he just kept talking and started saying some really awesome stuff. It was so sweet. Everyone in the zone is way pumped, which is good cause we needed something. This week was really hard. still really good but the Satanas was definitely to keep me from being the missionary that I can be. It wasn’t like anything bad happened but we were just so busy the whole week with everyone else and getting things ready for other people that we didn’t have time to work in our area. The whole week was interviews, and conference and meetings and division and preparing baptisms for others. There was a baptism of one of the elders in our zone and the girl asked us to come and Presidente Ardila came so we had to prepare that. As well, my ward building is the only building here in Lima (in our mission) that has hot water. so some elders from another zone had a baptism of an old lady so they needed hot water. So we had to go buy gas and install it and after all that, it didn’t heat the water so we had to heat water in the kitchen in huge pans and carry the water downstairs to the font. It was just one of those weeks where you do so much but when all is said and done nothing got done. Don’t get me wrong. we still had some really awesome lessons this week but not like usual. I feel really sad. I don’t know. I just wasn’t able to work. and when I don’t work I feel sad or depressed. I love this work and I’m so thankful that I am able to serve the Lord here in Peru. But the good thing is that it’s a new week and there is nothing big planned so we´ll be able to work hard this week.
Well family, love you guys so much and thanks for all you do for me. I have the greatest family ever and I hope you all have an amazing week.
