Hola Familia Y Amigos!
I hope all is well with you guys. This has been a good, but fairly normal week for us here in the mission. The big news of the week, is that changes are today and they announced that my companion has a change. My new companion is going to be a fairly new missionary from Bolivia. I have talked to him once. He seems like a nice guy. We are very excited to be working with all the Investigators in our area.
Maria is doing well. She is preparing to be baptized this Saturday, so she is excited for her baptism. We are also working with Doris, a very kind 63 year old lady we met while knocking on doors. She already knew about the Mormons because her sister is a member. She is very receptive, and has already come to church two times. She is preparing to be baptized on the 2nd of July, so we are excited for that. She really likes to be in the church and make new friends, and she likes to mark up her Book of Mormon and take lots of notes during the lessons. She is going to be a very good member.
For P. Day last week we had a pretty chill day. We ate lunch at Plaza Norte, and then we just hung out. Today we are going to play soccer! Speaking of soccer, the American Cup is going on, so it’s been a little difficult this week to make appointments. Everyone is busy watching the games! Especially when Perù plays!
It is so neat to be here and to experience the culture of such a different part of the world. I absolutely love it. Last week at church, I gave a talk, passed the sacrament, AND taught the Gospel Principles class.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve. Well, all is fantastic here in Perù, and I am excited to go into power mode my last change here in the field, so that I can leave it all on the field. Hope you all have a great week, and “keep on keepin` on!”
Love you all,
Love Elder Reschke.
P.S. Sorry no pics this week because I think my camera SD card got a virus!
