Well I am a dad now. Which means im training a greenie!! His name is Elder Peterson, from Payson, Utah!! Whats good!!! President called me last Monday, and asked me if I would train a new missionary. I said of course, and next morning I went to huancayo to go pick and meet my new companion! He doesnt know that much english but he is a great guy, and really wants to learn! So that is cool! Never trained before, but it is going well, staying obedient and working hard, helping him out with everything!!! 

So when i go to huancayo, i meet up with some other Elders that are training and I ran into my friend Elder Rodreguiz!! From my ccm group! I havent seen him since Cerro de Pasco days! So it was nice to catch up with him! As well I got to see Elder Valencia, my first companion when i was in Ambo!! Remember him? I was only with him for like 3 weeks, then he got emergency transfered? He is also training! So it was nice to catch up with those guys!! It was nice! As well as A sister missionary, named Hermana white? She is from Kaufman? She has like 8 months in the mission. It was my first time meeting her. She was also training, I enjoyed meeting her, because I found out she lives so close to me, and I didnt even know her? Pretty cool!

Anyways everything is going well here in satipo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love it here!! So Karina, our investigator!!! She is moving out of her house at the end of november and leaving with her kids, and she said she wants to get baptized in december!!! And her daughter liz!!! So thats awesome!!! They are coming to church frequently now, and doing great, she is looking for her new house! So grateful she decided to leave this guy..!!!  

Quote that i really love is- "Believe in anything you want to believe in, but keep God at the top of it, with him life can be a beautiful experience, without him... well your just biting time!" -John Wayne  I love this quote because, John Wayne just basically tells us whats good! That we need to keep God at the top of everything! I shared it with Karina, and thats how she decided she needed to put God first, to direct the rest!! 

Well the internet was really slow today! Extremely slow! So sorry if i couldnt get to everyone!

I also ran into my boy Elder Walker in Huancayo!!! He is a zone leader down there, and i saw him!!! Love that guy! Good times in cerro de pasco with Elder Walker and Elder Schreiner, Speaking Of Elder Schreiner, he is now a zone leader as well!!!  So cool!

With much heat in the jungle,

Elder Thatcher

Me and my new companion

me and Elder Rodreguiz

Hey everybody!!! en primer lugar, I got my package!!!! It was amazing!!!! I ate it all... hahaha just kidding, there is still a little bit left! I love that tie by the way! Thanks mom! And the america flag socks.... classic!!

So this week was good! We started it off with last monday going to another waterfall called Tsomontonari!! It was beautiful!! I love God's Creations!!! Then on tuesday we were having trouble with finding people so we called a guy in our phone named moses, and we thought it was a less active guy that was member. We go to his address and everything, meet up with him, and find out it was a different moses who was an old investigator from last year!! So that was interesting. We taught him and he liked it and said he was interested again to listen. So that was nice. Then on saturday we had a ward activity. We watched Meet the Mormons with our ward! It was great!! We had our invetigator karina show up! She wants to get baptized so bad, but she cant, becaused she isnt married with her spouse, and he doesnt want to get married. She cant seperate with him either because she has no where to go? Any advice?? sHE IS A GREAT PERSON!! Whoops.. caps lock... awkward... anyways.. I gave a talk on saturday!! It was good, I talked about my boy ammon in the book of mormon, and about his missionary experience, about how with the Lords help he didnt even doubt, the only one that doubted him at first was his father! Who was the King!! How cool is that! And he just said, Daddy, i know its what i got to do, im not some kid who watches cartoons any more, haha, im going, and im going to go preach to those lamanites!!! Whats good! I love that story! Because he just handles the whole situation with calmness!!! 

Anyways that was my week! Sounds like all of yall are doing well, tell dallin, that his uncle says be careful!!!!!!! Haha, dad looks good on that horse still!! Josh looks tired! And chris... what is that animal doing on his face??? Haha, but nice blue shirt! And a good lookin family!!! Love yall!!!!!

Hola chicos... pasan... 

Haha we have an investigator that tells that to us when we visit her. Have chris tell you want it means, im sure he will laugh at it. haha. Ok so this week was AMAZING!!! All started out with a great P day at the waterfall called Jugle dorado!!! (Golden Jungle) It was deep and far into the jungle. We had a member named arturo take us up in his little moto taxi!!! It was amazing! I have never been so grateful for gods creations until now!!! There were all type of colorful birds flying around!!! Even a bird called Gallito de los rocas!! Its the national bird of peru!! You will have to look them up! They are sooo pretty!!! We saw sloths on trees! Monkeys were playin around!! It was truly beautiful!!! Then we worked hard, found some new investigators. Unfortunetly none came to church... Then our pension left for 5 days to that place called tingo maria. So I cooked the past 5 days!!! I made burgers, pancakes, breakfast tacos... and attempted to make philly cheese steak sandwiches... but i burnt the meat... but it was still better than raw potatoes and rice!!! Thats for sure!!!

I still havent gotten my package yet, but i should get it this week!  Love you guys!!!!
