14 September 2015 Letter

Well, this week was super sweet.  I don't know how to send pictures now 'cause they are too big a resolution but I will figure it out.  On p-day we went to Centro de Lima.  There is this central square that is pretty sweet.  You don't even feel like you are in PerĂº.  And then you see all the Peruvians and your companion and signs in Spanish and Llama stuff.  It was a really relaxing time.  It took like an hour and a half to get there and like two to come back.  Elder Wilson and I saw Hermana Vernon there (a sister missionary from our district in the CCM who went to Lima Norte mission) so we did some catching up.  We got some cool things and took some sweet pics.

This Saturday we had Isrrael's baptism.  Yes, we found out his name has two r's which was pretty strange to find out as we filled out his baptismal record with him.  A member from the ward was going to baptize him, but at the last second flaked out so Elder Cornejo did it.  It was a great service and hearing his testimony afterwards was so cool.  On Sunday, he showed up in all church clothes - before that he went in a t-shirt and jeans.  He looked super happy and like he is ready to go on a mission.  All he needed was the plaque - tag thing.  I think it is tag in English.  We confirmed him a member and then it was official.

We also are working with 9 less-actives in total that have come back to church.  We have to teach them all the lessons and they have to go to church three times and be interviewed by the bishop to be officially called reactivated.  It is a statistic we have in the mission just like baptisms.  If you noted, the process is very similar.  So hopefully they we all be reactivated in these next few weeks.

See you all next week.  Thanks for all the support, packages, and letters.  It makes me super happy.

Love you guys,

Elder Wilcox
