I wish I could say I ate a ton of food and candy! Outside the church on Sunday, Easter really isn`t a big deal here! You can buy like chocolate eggs and that stuff but thats about it! Just another week for me preaching the Gospel.
Spent a lot of the week with Pace and Revilla (from Peru) due to the washed out highway and totally stopped bus system. My companion finally got here Thursday morning when he should have arrived Monday. He is from Buenos Aires, and we already kind of met from other guys in the mission that we know, he loves the work but he also likes to have fun so its going to be a good couple transfers I think.
In the branch they released the mission leader and called a new one that is a boss. We are going to have a ton of success working with him, and between us 6 we already have a lot of people preparing for baptism. Excited for this time here and for the colder days! Time is going super fast and I feel like I was just here yesterday writing emails.
What a beautiful time, Easter, to be able to remember the greatest sacrifice of our beloved Savior. With everything that is happening in the world, what a blessing it is to pray and thank our Heavenly Father for our countless blessings. I hope that you can focus on the positive in life and center yours around the Lord Jesus Christ. He understands you, and is waiting to take away your burdens. I testify that He lives, and I wish you all a Happy Easter.
