Elder Lyman

Letter 38

What's up everyone? I had a pretty nice week this week. So, since my comps brand new to Peru we had to travel all the way to Piura so he could go through immigration. It was actually pretty nice because I just hung out in the office all day with my boy Elder Mullen from Walla Walla. It was cool because I gotta go to the gym that morning. It's the first time I've been able to do that since being on my mission. Then we had MultiZone the next day, so we went back to Piura and heard some good counsel from president on teaching people and not lessons. Basically, as missionaries we don't just focus on teaching lessons, but more on the needs of the people.

Our p day today was pretty hype. We went to Sechura, which is like 3 hours away and we went sand boarding. It's like snowboarding, but not as cool and it's in the sand. That's the first time I've ever done that. I got some nice video of me shredding some sand haha. Then we went to a zoo that was in the middle of nowhere and only had like chickens, rabbits and goats on exhibit. I see that stuff like everyday in my area, but they did have a monkey and a llama so it was alright. Then, we went to the beach and that was so nice. It was perfect weather and we even saw a herd of dolphins (I know that's not the word, but I can't remember what it is.) That was super cool too. To top it all off, I got a haircut, so it was a good day.

We are working hard with Angelo. I'm pretty sure I've talked about him before. He's been reading the Book of Mormon the past 3 weeks or so. He's in 1 Nefi 12, so he's doing good. He also told us that he knows that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith is a prophet. I started smiling so hard when he said that. it was such a testimony builder to me that someone who didn't know much about the Book of Mormon could come to know that it is the word of God in 3 weeks time. It can only come from God. He still has some questions and wants to wait a little bit on baptism, but we're going to work with him to get him ready for his fecha on the 11th of May.

Have a great week!
