Cieneguilla, Peru


Zakary Gibbons

Week #30

Alright dudes, feeling a little down today. This is my last week in Cieneguilla. I found out yesterday that I will be transferred and receive a new companion. This is only my second transfer and I seem to get anxiety around transfer days. I'm also feeling homesick, but at least it's just home sickness and I"m not actually sick like I was last week cause that was really bad. I think this area mostly reminded me of home. There are lots of palm trees and for the most part its pretty green. I will be leaving to go to Pierola Chosica. I hear it rains a lot there. I am really stoked about that, but I am also very sad. It's hard to say goodbye to the people and our ward. I have been in this place for 3 months and have grown to love the people very much. You get pretty attached to the people here. My companion will stay here and begin training a new missionary that arrives tomorrow from the CCM. My new companion is Elder Christian Aguirre from Colorado. He finishes his mission in July of this year. I don't really know anything else about him other than I hear he is a pretty good dude. They also told me that I will be the English teacher in my new area. I don't exactly know what that means, but it should be

Yesterday we found a guy who is so smart and funny and seems pretty amazing. He is a free mason and a super good dude. He is really interested in the teachings of the church, but walked away from it because he didn't agree with some of the stuff.

During another lesson this week we were teaching about the Book of Mormon when all of a sudden a freaking owl flew in the doorway just like you would picture the Holy Ghost coming in. hahah We caught the owl. It was really cool. The spirit of course was gone by that time so we just left. We got to eat some cui again this week only this time, we had to kill and gut them. It was awesome!! It tastes so good.

Then we were walking down the street and we saw a dog eating something so we walked up to him and he was eating a freaking cat!! I didn't think that dogs ate cats, but now I know they do. It was pretty gross. I also saw a fire hydrant! You will think that's weird that I got so excited, but it reminded me of home, so I had to take a picture of it.

To top off the week, I also came upon a dog that looked just like my little dog Blitz that died in December. Oh man, did that make me feel sad. I'm really going to miss this place A LOT! I received some hand written letters this week from some of you! Thanks so much, I love to read them!
