Well This week was excellent, conference was INCREDIBLE!! When your a missionary conference is something that just passes by sooooo fast! 2 hours is like two seconds! Its was soo fun to be able to listen to every sesson in Spanish and too see how my spanish has improved since last conference, thanks to the blessings that the Lord has given me!
We had 6 investigadors and 6 menos activos in confernece, which was a great blessing to show all of them that this is the true church and to hear and see the Profeta! It was an excellent week!
This is my letter I sent to President, because im a little bit short on time this week!
Yah im not to sure about the whole named etched into the sidewalks, but yeah this area sure is etched in my heart and will be forever! Thank you for allowing me to be here and for letting me serve in this great area with so many great companions. Im ofically the 3rd counselor in the obispado, no but It sure has been a wonderful week in Trujillo. Elder Soliz is doing great, he just keeps amazing me with his humility and way of serving and loving the people. He tries his hardest everyday. Its been such a joy working with him and learning with him. I think back to when we began the training and to where we are now and theres a lot of things that I have learned and been amazed by in this past 9 weeks. The miracles that come from obedience and hard work, and love for the work. The one thing Ive thought about a few times, and especially during conference is the Why to all the things we do. The Why to serve a misson and sacrfice all that we have and give all of our heart. I feel like I need to change my why to the things I do. I need to really work on strengthen this part of my conversion and testimony not only for the mission but forever. Having been a member of the Church for all my life, surround by good always in the home, school, mission, the why has been easy, Its because it what we do. If we dont do it, the people around will think badly about you, our your parents will be sad, our upset, The why was maybe for fear of the people around me, also they why to do good maybe was for recognition, to gain more respect from the people around. I have fallen into this weakness a lot, and this past week I noticed that. The Why we do the things we do, keep the commandments we keep, remember the convenants weve made is because of our Love for our Heavenly Father. Our perfect example of this Is our Savior Jesus the Christ who did everything in and through his Love for our Father in Heaven. It was for this love that he had always that he was able to complete the greatest feat the world has and will ever see and expierence, the Atonement. I know that through the Grace of God, we are able to make our weaknesses strengths, and that is what I hope to accomplish for the rest of my life. Its been a great week here, the people are doing great. The zone is doing great, sure have seen a lot of different changes of leaders, companionships, but It sure is fun to see the different types of Leadership and styles of completing our propositio here in Peru. I cant wait for this incredibly important week here in Trujillo. We are going to totally change the animos of this ward about the temple and fill the Temple with the souls and children of our Heavenly Father. With lots of prayers and fasting its going to be a great week, to share the restored gospel, full of eternal Truths found adentro the Temple!

Mainly cause theres a lot of funny things that happen, this week was my companion! he bought a new pen, high tech...nahahha well it was for him, soo funny the first night with the pen he had huge ink stains on his shirt, and everytime he tried to put the pen in his pocket he drew on his shirt!
