January 7

So i just noticed that there is lots to read so ill print it.  first
don't worry about the pudding but send more hot cocoa.
So thanks Dave for your letter. it encouraged me. yes i am being good
but sometimes with a companion  that sleeps in, ya i could too, easy.
But its true the Lord knows even if the president doesn't haha.

Thank the Carrigan and Wells family for the Christmas card- its was way cool.
Also i got a letter from a elder from the MTC- a Latin and he sent
photos from my comp in the mtc. i was confused but now i get it. they
are companions, its pretty cool..

So i want to share a story i learned this week. of mishac, shadrac and
abendigo. In the Bible in Daniel.  so in short they were sent to the
oven basically and the king saw 4 people not 3. first we know the Lord is
always with us. Also after they left the oven they didn't even smell
like fire, they were not stained not even the smell. Its like us in
the world. There are so many things that can stain us. Some people are in
the world and have there clothes little burnt, others just there hairs
others live with he smell of the fire. But in order to arrive to
live with God we cant even have the smell.  like in 2 Ne. says we are
free to choose life or .. i don't remember the word. captivity maybe..
so that we don't get stained we have to do what it says in Jacob 1:19
I think. If we are already members. if not. 3 Ne. 27: 20 something like
that. Be baptized.  this is what i learned. its pretty... cool i want
you guys to apply it.

So this week was crazy. We had a baptism but the next day we went over
there and she said in 2 years. And said she doesn't want us to come now
until she is ready... it made me pretty mad.  When People know what
they have to do but don't do it. that was really discouraging.  But
ya..  Other stuff, almost every day in the  morning there has not been water.
the other day no watter or power.. the other day no power all day .
the phone died and we couldn't contact the zone leaders and they
needed us to send the record of the baptisms. Also those of my
district didn't answer there phone so we had to go to San Pedro De
Cajas.  They weren't there they had gone to Tarma. Because i communicated
bad.. at least they are forgiving ha ha.

Its hard here. it makes me think of too many things because there isn't much
success but we are still working. The thing is i don't know what to do
and my companion doesn't help tons in that aspect. But i am trusting in the
Lord to tell me what i can do.  The only thing keeping my companion from
being a senior companion or DL is to be more obedient and do more than the
minimum.  And not be so lazy sometimes. haha sound like a lot but its
not. so ya

still shoveling.

love ya
