Hey guys its Keato,
So another really good week like always. So this week was a little crazy, actually really crazy, probably the craziest week in my mission. So this whole week, there were emergency changes in the mission and Elder Farfan and I are in charge of sending all the elders from Provincia to Provincia. Everyday this week we´ve been in the terminal waiting for elders and sending elders off and all that stuff. It was super crazy! I’d bet that 75 percent of my week was spent in the terminal, it was crazy. Then to top it off, this week president closed an area that was here in La Oroya, and so now Elder Farfan and I have a huge area. It was crazy because since president closed the area, we had to go get all the stuff from the old room. We went to the room and started moving the stuff out and we talk with the owner. Well lets just say that the owner flipped out and started yelling and was really upset that the elders that were there before didn’t take care of the room all that. We talked with him and told him to make a list of the things he wanted us to pay and we would pay him. The next day we went to talk to him and he showed us a bill for 500 soles which was really ridicules and on the list he had a whole bunch of things that were over priced and not needed. Then to make things even more interesting, he went to the police station and took out a Denuncio or something like that. They said we had to pay everything before the 31 of the month or I could possibly go to jail. To make it even better, I didn’t have any money because it all got spent on changes and this was 2 days before we had to leave to La Merced for conference and the office couldn’t pay me until Saturday. It was a huge hassle and we ended up going and getting our own prices and the office sent me emergency money and we spoke with the brother for a good time and we finally payed him 200 soles and all is good now, so I’m not going to jail (haha) don’t freak out mom all is well. Then we had to get things ready for the conference. This morning we brought the whole zone to La Merced (my old area ) and we had pday here and tomorrow well have conference with presidente. It should be sweet. Then the one day that I wasn’t doing the changes I went to San Pedro to do interviews for baptisms. It was fun and nice to get away. San Pedro is really calm and quiet so it was nice to get away. This week has been one of those weeks where you are doing everything for everyone else. We couldn’t work in our area this week which is horrible. Elder Farfan and I feel really bad for not working. When you don’t work in your area, it stinks.
We are in La Merced right now and when we go back everything will be better. We’ll just want to say that I love you guys and hope that all is well. Sounds like you had a crazy week too. Sorry no pictures. this computer doesn’t read the camera. Thanks for the letter to Elvis and Liz and the info about Havasupia. If you could invite Seth that would be sweet.
Thanks for everything.
