Week #8 and Week #9

So, the last two weeks have been very eventful for Christian. Last week he got food poisoning, and got so sick that he lost 5 pounds, and then right after, he got the flu so he was sick for a while! He got well just in time to fly away.   He had to say bye to a couple close friends he made at the MTC, like Elder Nielson.  He was ready to leave though he said. Well, he finally got what he wanted, and he is in Lima Peru, teaching real investigators.  He flew out January 7th, so it has only been one day.  He has a companion right now named Elder Delgado.  Right now, everything is just getting figured out, but I will be able to give more detail later.  For now, I just wanted to post the last pictures of the MTC he had sent. He took pictures with his favorite teachers and also of the snow fort, which he made sure to say he was "extremely proud of." Also, the first family he went to after being in Peru was able to give me a picture of him when he arrived in Lima when they went to eat, so I will post that as well.

 This is Christian and his group with Hermano Purnell, and Hermana King, who are two of his teachers, in the front with the white name tags.
 This is Hermano Purnell, another one of Christian's teachers who he really liked.
This is Hermano Galves, who was Christian's favorite MTC teacher.  He said "Brother Galves is so amazing.  He inspires me so much and he is a great teacher."
