Four Months on the Mission!

Hello again,

Elder Contreras is gone and on his way home. I will know who my new companion is tomorrow night, and he will come on Wednesday. Right now I'm with the zone leaders staying with them. I have a ton of pictures!!! But I forgot my camera because I'm with the zl’s. This week has been hard, which fits because my training finished the way it started. This whole week we have been in appointments and stuff, and Elder Contreras would tell them that he was leaving for his mission and then everyone would get sad. And I would be like yeah I'm still gonna be here. haha. Then, on Saturday that was our last real day, and it was super hard. With the investigators like I just said, then Elder Contreras was thinking and talking about home, which made me think about home. And then I realized or remembered that it was Chloe’s birthday. Sunday (Mare's birthday) was hard too, but it was better because we had 2 families come to church and some less actives. I am a little worried though that they just came for Elder Contreras, and I'm worried if I'll be able to teach effectively without him.

Makes so sad that I can’t be there to watch Clay play basketball. I pray for him and all the Pendletons. I pray for Grandma Sue every day because I worry about her so much. I pray for Gpa. Bud and Gma. Leslie. I’ll pray for Camrons midterms this week and for Chloe and whoever the heck she’s dating. I used to pray that Camron and Chloe wouldn’t get married while I was gone. haha. But now I pray they find someone because I want the best for them. I’m proud of Anna and her hard work in school. When I meet girls who are 13 here in Peru I think, oh no, that’s how old my little sister is going to be when I get home, and it scares the heck out of me. You’re at the doctor with grandma. I miss the days when you would take grandma to the doctor and bring home Krispy Kreams. Ahhhhhhh! I love you and dad, and I pray for you every day.

But yeah that's where I am right now. I had my four month mark this week. I Love you all so much.
