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
