Hola Familia Y Amigos!
This was a solid week for us here in Trapiche. For P. Day we went and hung out with the Zona Santa Isabel, and made tacos, so that was a fun day.
We had a good Zone meeting on Tuesday. Whenever I give trainings for my District, I always bring treats to keep everybody excited, ya know?
This week was a solid week for us because we were able to teach a lot of progressing Investigators. We have a baptismal date with David, so we are excited for him. We are working on a baptismal date with Antonio, and we have a lot of people that we are going to mention baptism this week!
Remember that golden family I told ya about that we contacted last Sunday? Well I was wrong. They aren’t golden. They are DIAMOND!!! They are so awesome!! Super excited, liked the Book of Mormon a lot, are for sure coming to church this Sunday, have already given us breakfast and lunch, and invited us to spend Christmas with them! Wow they are going to progress so quickly. I am very excited for them. They are very kind, and they like listening to our message. Lots of prayers please!!
We were also able to bring Simón, and Bety to church yesterday for the first time. They liked it a lot! There was a Regional Conference transmitted form Salt Lake City for all of Perú and Bolivia. We were able to listen to Elder Anderson and two of the Seventies. They gave really good talks!
Wow I am just so excited for this week that we are going to have teaching all these people that are progressing! We were contacting people in the park yesterday and ran into a lady that just got here from Chiclayo and was already to be married and baptized by the missionaries in Chiclayo a month ago, but lost contact with them when she came to Lima. So, she just kinda fell straight from the heavens! We are going to visit them this week.
Well sorry this letter was kinda scattered but I want you all to know how excited I am to be a missionary and participate in the work of the Lord. This truly has been such an amazing time period in my life, and I am excited to keep working hard until the very end!!
Love you all so much, and have a fantastic week.
P.S. Cultural Note: In just about every area in the mission, there is something called a Huaca. Just in the middle of the neighborhoods, stand the Huacas, which are ancient ruins left by the ancient inhabitants of this area. You can see the melting walls of the buildings where they lived, and if you look around real well you could probably find artifacts. Pretty neat, and there is a GIANT Huaca right in my area. Nobody really pays any attention to them, but they are super cool to explore!
P.S.S. We already have our Christmas festivities planned...There are some people in the Branch that have something like 50 pigs, so they are killing 15 of them for Christmas, and we are going to help them:)
Questions Elder Reschke answered this week:
What do you feed your District?
Well, this past week I give them Chokosoda, which are these really tasty soda crackers covered in chocolate. It sounds weird, but it is super tasty.
Have you gotten your package yet???
I haven’t gotten the package, and I am 99 percent sure it’s just sitting in the mission offices. Sometimes they take a while…
