Semana 67 in Moyobamba (May 4th, 2015)

This week was nuts! We seriously worked our tails off.  I'm pretty sure I just had more lessons with member than I have ever had in my whole mission. It felt so good, it's good to stay busy and working to keep my mind off the prospect of ending my mission in two weeks. This is unreal.
This week the zone leaders helped us move to a new apartment. In our old house we had seen one two many tarantulas and the moldy smell was getting under our sleeves. But we love our new place! It's a lot smaller, but it's on the second floor (no spiders), get's a lot more ventilation than the old house, and there's a lovely view from up here!
Anyway, I don't really have much to say other than this week was just another fulfilling week in paradise.  The branch is growing, we just got a new branch president and I tell ya, he is pretty much future apostle. He is seriously the most spiritual person I have ever met here in Peru and he is really helping break the old bad habits and getting the church to run here the way it's meant to be run. It's something so refreshing after so long in my mission.
Anyway, I feel boring but I really don't have much else to say.  The Lord is helping me keep on working and giving even more than I have, and that is a testament to me that God lives and that his is mindful of me. This week I'm going to Iquitos for the monthly leadership council. That's all for now folks! Oh yeah, see your pretty faces on skypesunday!! I know it makes it a bit anti-climactic the whole me coming home the following week, but I'll take it!

Love you all!!

Talk about forgetting yourself and getting to work--my district leader forgot it was his birthday and no one knew!! So we felt bad and bought him a cake...and smashed an egg on his head as is tradition here in our mission :)

 This is how they rode to our new house. Haha totally acceptable in peru

From inside the new casa

You know I love that view 

I hope you aren't getting sick of the 'me in front of the mountain pictures' they're becoming about as frequent as the 'me in front of the river' photos in Iquitos.
