I was telling Pap, I can`t even imagine how cold it is out there in Beaver. How do you even manage it? I bet you have to wear two great fuzzy coats to stay warm. :) Here it reaches 95 degrees fahrenheit at about 3 in the afternoon. But the funny thing is, I am completely used to the heat now. In the morning, when it`s about 70 degrees, I`m freezing as I leave my "cold" shower. El Salvador, you`ve got to love it!
Guess what? This week I got an email from W. Leatherow, my trainer! He is doing great, and says that he is working hard and preparing to study later in the Fall. I miss that guy. We truly had a great three transfers together.
This morning was the best. President gave our zone permission to play paintball, and we just had a blast. I got pegged a few times by Elder H, and got Elder C pretty badly. It was tons of fun. I`m going to send you pictures!
It`s sad, this was Elder Perdomo`s last week. On Saturday we got invited over to dinner by Elder K and his companion. We held a pupusa-eating contest, and I beat everyone. I ate 12 pupusas!! Elder K finished with 10, and we were both a little sick afterwards. Well, maybe a little more than a little sick. But it was worth it!! ;D I just haven`t changed a bit, huh? ;) Kidding.
What am I grateful for?
I am grateful for my companion, Elder Perdomo. He`s taught me so much during these 8 weeks that we`ve been together! He`s a great teacher, and an amazing leader.
I am grateful for my bishop and the ward members that help us with the Lord`s work. On Sunday we had 6 investigators at church with the help of the members. They`re so great!
And...I`m thankful for the scriptures! I`ve learned so much this week during my personal study. One of our investigators had a question about Adam and Eve, and we studied the Pearl of Great Price in order to answer his question. I realized yet again just how perfect God`s plan is for us. He is merciful, and I`m truly thankful for Christ`s sacrifice for all of us. Isn`t it wonderful that we can be forgiven for the mistakes we`ve made? We just have to trust in the Lord and have faith in Him, and everything will work out fine.
I hope you have a great week!
Love you all!
