Well Cerro is treating me real nice! Love it here more and more each
day. President emailed me and basically he didnt see my change going
that way but the Lord did. I dont exactly understand that but it is
ok. I love here anyways! For Thanksgiving elder walker and I went out
to eat with our zone leaders (who are awesome) to a really good
restaurant! Then after that, Elder Walker and i went and bought some
pie! It was really good!! Look at the pictures!

Anyways, I had my second district meeting on Tuesday, and I was able
to find the needs of my district and teach them according to that. The
Zone leaders went to Huancayo for a zone leaders conference and told
everyone how i am district leader. Apparently everyone knows about me
now, Even elders I dont know yet. The youngest district leader in our
mission had 11 months, now everyoneee knows about me. I just dont
understand why i am district leader right now. I was expecting to be
junior companion for another 6 to 7 months. But my zone leaders keep
telling me to not doubt president. I hope i understand it soon.

On wednesday I went on splits with my zone leader, Elder Kidd, he only
has like 3 months left on the mission. He is a super hard working
Elder, and just a great guy! I learned a lot from him.

So this week, I want to talk about faith. and hope. So right before I
came heere to Cerro de Pasco, my area was just barely opened up. So it
is a new area. And so far it has just been super hard finding people.
Because there isnt any members that live in our area. It is a fairly
poor area. And so on friday... Ya friday was rough.. We didnt teach
anyone alllll day.!!! Was the first time i havent taught someone
everyday. I was so sad. It reeeeally put a trial on my faith and hope
as well it did to Elder Walker. We didnt know what to do. We dont have
very many investigators and it is just really hard. So on saturday
elder walker and i decided to fast. Fast until we found someone who
was prepared to hear this gospel. We knocked, and contacted, and
knocked for 6 and a half hours, just contacting. We had 43 contacts
that day... And no one wanted to hear. We were about to go back to the
room, but Elder walker and I wanted to contact one more person. So we
knocked, and a 19 year old boy opened the door. And I just knew he
would let us teach him. AND HE DID!!! His name is Anderson. And he
just had so many questions!!! We gave him a Book of mormon and he was
excited to read it! He told us he wanted us to come back! The only
problem is he studies alllll week, so we can only teach him on
Sundays! It just goes to show you that if you can just put your trust
in the Lord and keep going and working with Faith that he will putt
someone in our paths! It has been a long week. But i am ready to work
even harder!!

On Sunday, I was asked to give a talk 5 min before sacrament meerting
about tithing. I was so nervous. But anyways!!!! My spanish!!!! It
just came to me! I didnt have to worry or anything!!! I am so suprised
how it is just coming to me all of a sudden!!!

So ya that is my week so far!!! Pretty good! I am thankful for my
family! I love Yall!!

With love
Elder Thatcher
