Hey everyone! How are you all doing? This week I've been great, but today just a little good. haha Right now my stomach is bugging me and I have a headache but I've been due for a little stomach problem because I haven't been sick for a long time.
Anyways, I finished up at the dentist today and I had 4 cavities in total!! More than I've ever had in my whole life from one dentist appointment. Anyways, the total came to 400 soles, or like 120 dollars so it was kind of a lot.
Anyways, Mom asked me what I wanted in my Christmas package and I think I've decided that the dentist appointment was my Christmas present. haha I was also able to buy a Mt. Dew and Dr. Pepper today. I don't need anything so don't worry about me.
Anyways, I don't have much time to write but I love you guys and know that you are all safe and happy.
Anyways, all of the family Asto were baptized and it was a very spiritual baptism. President Turk told us it was one of the best and well prepared baptisms that he has seen in the mission so far.
We also received more good news that the ground breaking for the Trujillo temple started. They had it this week and we were not invited but they told us right after they did it. We also had a stake conference with all of the stakes in Peru through satellite with President Monson and also Elder Kristofferson. ha We also received bad news that my mission president from the CCM, President Whetton, died last week in Salt Lake City. Apparently he had problems and went in for an analysis and found out that he had pancreatic cancer. They said he died very fast and suddenly and his wife, Sister Whetton, is having a really hard time with it. Please pray for her.
Anyways, we have a lot of people in our area that are really close to being baptized but they have a few obstacles to overcome. Thanks for your support and letters this week and thank for being my friends and family. Thanks for sending be the stories and thanks for supporting my recent converts through letters.
Until next week,
Your grateful son and friend...
