Hey everyone glad to hear that everything has gone well that everyone had a good time for Thanksgiving. I hope Grandma Selma is feeling okay and that she made it back alright. To answer your question mom, yes I got 1 letter from Elder Samayoa about 3 months ago and it was a really great letter. Tell him thank you and that I still remember him and that he was a great example to me and I still have his awesome tie that everyone is jealous about.
Well......I have about a thousand things to say this week. It's starting to get a lot hotter here and pretty soon we´ll be in full time summer hot ughhhh. Also we are probably going to change rooms to live closer to the pensionista this week because we need a room where there is less noise.
 We had our interviews with President Turk this week and like usual he made us all feel like the best missionaries in the world and he taught us the importance of making goals and completing them. We played a scripture search game after, that is on the blog of Sister Turk. I won 2 times and got like 15 pieces of candy!!!! yaaaaaaa! We also had pizza after the interviews that was delicious.
 Afterwards we had a district meeting the next day, that I taught about the revelation we can receive through prayer. It went pretty well and I'm starting to get the hang of this district leader stuff. There's only 6 missionaries in my district so it's pretty easy to help them and visit them when they need assistance.
Well Thanksgiving actually passed very well. We took the money for our dinner and had her by a turkey leg to eat for lunch. We had mashed potatoes, turkey leg and vegetables, que rico!!!! We also had Sister Claudia go and pick up some pizzas from Papa Johns. We pretty much hog the pizza so we always buy 4 so we can have a whole pizza to ourselves.
We found a great family this week who have already accepted the invitation to be baptized. their names are Carlos, Yohan, and Brayan. They are very shy and reserved but are a great family that really needs the gospel because some of the things that have happened to them. Please pray for them. Their goal is to be baptized on Christmas Eve.
 I also had a very funny experience this week. we found a new lady and started to teach her and her cousin. After the lesson she asked me if I could be the godfather of her 1 year old daughter named Ana Lucia. haha I thought it would be funny to be a godfather to a peruvian girl, but it has to do with the catholic baptism. We didn't really know what to tell her, so we told her we would think about it, but it turns out that I can't anyway because to be a godfather the catholic church requires a peruvian i.d. card. Anyways, we went back and started teaching her about baptism by immersion but she didn't quite get it because she was still all interested in me being part of her baby's baptism. haha It's a funny story but very sad that she`s baptizing her baby like that. Most of the people baptize their baby catholic even when they don't go to church or believe sometimes all about the church. It's a very strong cultural thing here.
 Anyways, we were able to share a beautiful baptism by immersion of a girl named Katty. She is 15 and the first person in her family to become a member. Her sister has a baptism date for the 17 of December and we are trying to help her come to church and feel the spirit there.
Anyways, I have no more time but I know the church is true and that the Book of Mormon is evidence of that and also an evidence that Joseph Smith is a prophet and that Jesus Christ lives and has made it possible to return and live with our Heavenly Father.
