La selva es Chevre!

Howdy! Glad to hear everything is going well! This week we have been doing good here in Satipo. Lots of rain, it comes down strong!!! We have been having to rebuild this area. When I got here there was nothing. But this week we have worked hard and received a reference in a small town called mazamari, which is 30 min outside of satipo. She came to church yesterday and we gave her a date for the 31st. She will get baptized, she says she already knows the church is true! We have worked really hard, I feel like we dont have time to breath, or even talk in the street, we just have lessons all week every day!! I am also excited for conference!! Yes we get to watch it all!!!

So something that i liked in my study this week, is in section 112 in doctrine and covenants, and it is refering to the 12 apostles of joseph smith, but i like to put my name in there instead to make it feel like its talking to me, and i advise yall do the same. In verse 5 it says "contend thou, therefore, morning by morning, and day after day let thy warning voice go forth, and when the night cometh let not the inhabitants of the earth slumber, because of thy speech" then in 7 "therefore, grid up thy loins for the work, let thy feet be shod also, for thou art chosen, and thy path lieth among the mountains, and among many nations. These scriptures really spoke out to me as a missionary! Am I concerned for the people i am teaching? Yes, should i worry for them? Yes, although at some nights when i return i dont worry for them i am just thinking about there situations. I feel there is a difference in the two words there. Jesus Christ worried for the people he helped. Like it says in mosiah 18, verse 9, "and are willing to mourn with those that mourn, yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all TIMES and in ALL THINGS!!!" I really like that, Are we willing to do those things? Back in section 112 it says in verse 14 that we should arise and gird up your loins, take up YOUR cross, follow jesus christ, and feed his sheep... Are we taking up our own crosses? Are we following him in everything we do? Are we crying with those that are crying? Comforting those who are in need? As a missionary, and i have thought about it a great deal, if im not worried or feel sad feelings for people after i discover there needs, im not really helping them, yes im still changing there lives, but im not a TRUE disciple of christ. I find myself thinking about christ more and more each day.. He is our captain, so why not follow??

Last P day was an experience i will never forget!! We went to a waterfall called San Andres!! It was beautiful! Mom... the jungle is everything you have ever dreamed of, and then some!!!! You are probably super jealous!!! In the photos is me about to kiss a guinea pig, and the other is part of the waterfall!!
