Pine cones to use in their home made of brick and mud oven to made home made bread :)
so... things are going well here in Lirquén. We don't have any investigators really, but we are working on that. We are planning an activity to go to the plaza one day with a table, and a bunch of Books of Mormon and cool pass along cards that I made that how how the Book of Mormon and the Bible support each other, and how the B.O.M. clarifies a lot of things that are just lightly mentioned in the bible. Hopefully the activity turns out successful.
Oh Brady, something super cool is that this week I met an elder in my mission that is from Lima, Peru. Actually one of the wards you served in. His name is Ricardo Sialer and he is from the ward "Bolognesi in the stake "Chorrillos" and is the nephew of your ward mission leader Percy Sanchez. and is a part of the family Lomas-Mermutt. And turns out (mom and dad) that, that is actually the very same ward that we went to church when we picked Brady up in Lima. How cool right?? And Elder Sialer, told me that he remembers seeing me when we went to his ward. haha how crazy right, now we are in the same mission. I think he didnt' know Brady super well. He said he only left like once to accompany him or his companion I don't remember, but recognized me, and my last name obviously!
... some cool things about my sector, every T we eat in this restaurant called "El Rincon Marino" because the Bishop is the owner. And so we eat there for free, instead of eating at his house during the week. I am going to for sure take you guys there when you come yeah? Also the Bishop speaks english, because he served his mission in Arizona. And he has literally 5 brothers in the ward, and they all have callings like the ward mission leader, the high priest group leader etc. ha they are a super strong family and are great. Literally all of Lirquén are family. Everyone married someone from their same ward, and they all just live their whole lives here so everyone is related. Its a great ward.
Also Get pumped for General Conference coming up!! Such a great experience. 2 different people while we were contacting them said, "no thanks I dont want to listen, I already have my religion.... but you know what, I LOVE your tabernacle choir you guys have, they are increible" and we were like "oh we know they are amazing... you know what on, and 3 there is going to be a Mo Tab concert in Penco (the stake center) its going to be live transmitted from the united states. You guys gotta come!" I think we are going to have some visitors for general conference :) haha
Thanks for the birthday packaeg mom. I havn't opened it yet, but it got here today. Love you guys tons!!
