Hola de la ultima semana

Wow, these past 6 weeks have FLOWN by. Volado. Realmente.
We had interviews with the President this week. We also always have a training by the APs while we aren´t being interviewed. Los lideres de zona [zone leaders] this morning also trained us for a few hours on the same subject: goals and planning. Elder Gaete and I have reworked the way we will be planning from here on and so forth during our missions.

Right now we are low on baptisms, baptisimal dates, and investigators attending on sunday (i.e. progresando) [progressing]. We have decided to focus on acheiving a smaller goal, rather than overloading while shooting for excellence and accomplishing less.

We have improved dramatically with new investigators, with 10 nuevos this week. All from less active members, which shows that our hard work with less actives is really paying off.

Well everything is going great! We´re learning from our mistakes and doing our best not to make them again! Thank you for your support and inspiration!
A few more things to bring to Peru! Could you bring my work gloves? Even if they´re beat up, that would be wonderful. And batteries! They´re super expensive here! 3 or 6 AAAs would be wonderful!
A quick thought:
Proverbs 3:5
-¨Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.¨
-¨if ye love me, keep my commandments¨
-¨love the lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.¨
just a quick, rather digital thought, but hopefully you can chew on it for a while until the spirit can teach the principal for me.
Sorry another short letter! But at least there´s pictures this time! Haha
Thank you for everything!

We bought Zone Jerseys!

Billboards here are just great!
This one is for John Mulhern.
I don´t really know how to explain it, but please, pasa la voz por favor.

 A member that always comes with us to investigators, who we buy fruit from all the time-Roberto

Scout and I. His name is scout because he sits at the very end of a dead end and watches over the neighborhood with ears as sharp as razors, and when a stranger comes in he runs off to go investigate. He always comes to me when I whistle to him. My fingers are black because I pet the dogs, who get super dirty super quick because the air is so poluted. Gross, but worth it for all the friends I have!

made me think of Grandpa Steimle, so I took the picture
