Week #31!

Week #31: June 10, 2013

I’m having so much fun in my new area!! I am in Tarapoto Peru!! It is pure freaking jungle!!! We have one paved road in my whole area!! and the people here are soooo freaking nice!! It’s like we have to turn people down because so many people try to invite us into their houses!! Hahaa I think it has a lot to do with that we are both gringos! Me and my comp! So everyone wants to talk to us!! hahaha they are a crack up here!! And their way of talking is sooooooo freaking funny!!!! Even their kids talk with a super strong accent! They are soo funny!!! But I have seen a lot of naked women! There is a lot of porn here! I have seen way more porn on my mission then ever before in the States! I hate it and I just don’t look at it but it’s freaking everywhere! The people here are soo desensitized!! So we have two people with baptism dates. One is Leta Vela and she is pretty cool but didn’t come to church and we don’t know why! and the others are Jaime and Raid who we are going to marry them on the 21st and baptize them on the 22nd, but they didn’t come to church either so we have to find them!!! Freaking punks! I have called him every day and gone to his house every night for the last three days to find the people but no luck! Their house is a tarp and some sticks that hold it up! No joke they live in a house made of trash!! It’s sad! But they are happy so I guess it’s all good!! We are also teaching a new family of Thomas and Lidia who are 89 and 82 years old!! They can’t hear very well so we have to shout and then what made it worse is that it was raining so I had to go like right next to them and shout right into their ears!! But they want to be baptized!! There are a few more people too that are really cool but I don’t have time to write about all of them!! Hahahahaha We should be baptizing this Saturday so that will be cool!!!! 
Love, Christian

Week #30!

Week #30: June 3rd, 2013

So there was no email update about Christian's week, but I was able to find out the reason he didn't email is because he was given a change of assignment and transferred to the jungle.  He flew out today! The mission was split a couple of months ago.  So as far as I know, that means he is now a part of the Iquitos Peru Mission.  I will keep you all posted though! He was very excited about getting called to the jungle!!!!

Update: June 4th, 2013: It is soooo beautiful here!!! My aria is nuts!! It’s hard core jungle!! There is one paved road and the rest is dirt! and it rains like every 10 min hahahahahah its soooooo pretty!!!! You will freaking love it here!!! im sooo in love with it here!! I’m still more in love with you so don’t worry!!! hahaha I only have 1 day here so I don’t know many people but the people that I do know are super friendly!! and super loving and SUPER poor!! They have like nothing here!! no jooke they are soooo humble!!! i know im in the right place!!!!!
Love, Christian
