Hey family!!!! Whats good!!!!! I am lovin it here in hot hot hot paradise!!!! Everything is going good here in Satipo!!! We are kinda at ground 0 so we are rebuilding the area. So thats the only hard part. It is a branch here in satipo. It is really nice! The ward is nice, they just dont work in the way they should. So i was reading doctrine and covenants when all of a sudden i got the impression that i need to read and study more of the bible. I know the stories i just want to know more. So this week i was studing john. And what i really liked and knew that would help me was the story about Peter talking with Jesus in chapter 21. I have been thinking about a lot. And yes it scares me that i am getting closer and closer each day, so i really want to work and finish hard, like what it says in 2nd timothy 4, verde 7, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith", and yes I can apply that to golf finishing strong on my round but more importantly, thats what i want to be able to say at the end of my mission, and further down, at the end of my life to show my discipleship to christ. So when Jesus in john, goes to Peter, he asks him 3 times if he loves him more than the things he had. "Lovest thou me, more than these"? He had to ask his apostle 3 times that question. So iasked myself, do i love everything that i have ever had or grown to have more than Christ??? The first time i said yes, the second time as well, i said of course, but the third time i really thought, and i wanted to say yes, but i have also enjoyed the things I have been able to do, like golf, college, friendds... but i thought more and i said yes, yes i love my savior more than those things.. I think its important for us to know where our true desires are, just like peter had to find his true desires, and not his true wants... A lot of people here live together with there spouse and arent married so i share this with them, whats more important? the things we do and want or our love for the savior? If we dont love the savior, our hearts are in a different place and the same with our minds.

I love it here in satipo!!! Today the four elders, we are going to a waterfall!!! I will send pics next week!! Its nice having 4 gringos here in the district!!! We play basketball for exercise!!! 

Love yall!!! Ask me questions about the jungle!!! And go Cowboys!!!!

Love Elder Thatcher
