Hello Hello!It is burning up in Iquitos-but we had such a great week! On Tuesday early morning I dropped off Hna Arone at the Offices and picked up my new companion Hermana Astete. She is 20, from Chile, and has 14 months in the mission. She was sister training leader before so I just pick her brain with all sorts of questions. She is so great--our personalities are very different, but it works really rather perfectly. Which is such a relief--our personalities just seem to complement each other perfectly!
This week was really fun as I am "in charge of the area." I feel like everything is solidifying--the language is really getting there (Hooray!!), And just as a missionary I feel like I am understanding how to work here in Iquitos with limited resources (I`m sure this will come in handy one day :) (Please excuse my horrible grammar--my brain is getting jumbled with Spanish)
Other than that we`ve been teaching two families. The Manihuari Family--Laura received a testimony of the Restoration this week!! And commited to getting baptized in the end of February. Working more with her partner Balmas to received the same testimony and so they can get married!
Love you all--You are always in my prayers!!
