How are you all doing? I miss everyone back home but this week was really, really great!
First of all, Hermana Salinas and I discovered a part of our assigned area that we had no idea existed and it is gorgeous. We were visiting less active members on our list and climbed up this hill where they live and boom, it's just straight mountain valley. It quite the hike but we were working up there all week so we stopped and took some photos.
We are helping a lot of inactive members so that they can come back to church. Some of them are in dire need of love and assistance and we're working with the members so that we can help them in any way possible. We also found a several new families who are really excited about learning the gospel, and this week our investigator Richard is getting baptized on saturday! He's really great and super charismatic. We're also teaching his wife.
Hermana Salinas and I just feel really good in general about this week, we're working much more efficiently now that we have new leaders and branch president they help us a lot and we're starting to get more referrals from them.
I really am so truly happy to be living here, sharing something that is so special to me with all those around me, so that they too can experience the joy that the restored gospel brings. It really is what everyone is searching for, whether they know it or not. Tarapoto is a dream, being a missionary here isn't easy but it's definitely worth it! I love you all and don't you forget that somebody up there loves you!
