I am a child of God

Well ambo has been going pretty good! Elder Caceres and I had a lot of
lessons this week!! We are teaching two kids named jordan and jose
that both have 14. And they both have dates for the 16th of may...
but... the problems....Jordan comes to church and seminary but cant
get permision from his mom because he is under age, and jose has the
permision from his parents but cant come to church sundays because he
has to watch out after his grandmother every sunday. so there are the
problems!!!! Ugh!!!!! But ya we will figure it out!

There arent mailing addresses where i live, the only address i will
ever have in peru is the one that you send my packages too. I live in
a room owned by members. Its a nice room! The nicest I have had in my
mission!! My new companion is awesome!! Im learning to be more helpful
and charitable and just keep working. We used to not get along, but
doing this is really helping our relationship! Elder Caceres is from
peru, from the part, arequipa. For mothers day, i think im just going
to use the same user name that jon gave me for christmas, still dont
know the times, i will let yall know next week.

So some things for yall to research about ambo, i live in a area of
ambo called ayancocha, which means lake of blood!!! A while ago where
i live is where peru and chile had there independence war!! Scary!!
And in the mountains there are caves! Ginormous caves!!!! That lead
underground to brasil!!! Look it up on the internet, the story of ambo
and ayancocha, and the caves of ambo!! Its crazy!!!

So I had to teach sunday school this sunday. I didnt know I had to
teach until 10 min before. Good thing I taught elders quorum before
the mission!!! That helped!!  So basically, I talked about being a
Child of God. I have a question for every one that is reading my
emails. What does that mean to yall?? "A child of God". What kind of
magnitud does that title have for you? I was thinking about it for a
great deal. And one thing I really like is the example i used, If you
were a child of a president, (or in this case to mom, prime minister),
Would you feel powerful? Would you feel like you have a big
responsibility? Would you feel like someone important?? The answer to
most of you would most likely be yes. So then what does that mean to
be a child of God? Thats a title.. Just like being a child of a king
or president. But what are we doing with that calling of being a child
of God? what are our feelings about it? Do we express them? Are we
magnifying that calling as a child of God? I have been thinking about
it a lot.. And it has been comforting me more than ever.. I know my
purpose as a missionary, and I now know my purpose as  a child of God.
I invite you all to find your own purpose as being children of our
heavenly father.

One thing I always love is, Are we acting and serving others the way
Christ would serve? We are followers of christ arent we? So what are
we doing to show it?

I love you all, love you Grandma!! I know you are doing ok, because I
asked Heavenly Father to make sure of it!

Til next week,

Elder Thatcher
