My companion and I are staying together!!! We're super excited because we worked so hard last transfer and we're hoping to reap the rewards this transfer. We've been really trying to be the best missionaries that we can be.... and sometimes that can be hard because you have to pass through challenges in order to learn anything but we're doing our best and we're super ready to take on the transfer.
We did have a super cool adventure this week when we had to buy curtains for a companionship of sisters with a giant window in their room. Neither of us had ever gone curtain shopping before... let alone in Peru. Everyone here has their own little store and it's as if each block has their own theme. So we went to the curtain block and searched in 10 different curtain stores and finally we found one that would make us curtains for a reasonable price. It must have been fate because when we went to pick up the curtains we contacted the family and right away they gave us their information.
Now that I'm telling the story it's not that interesting but it was to us.
Besides work the highlight of the week has been our district leader who got stuck in Lima. Our distric leader had to travel to Lima last Tuesday to have some sort of operation on his finger his companion went with him. So far we have two elders in Lima. No big deal, they'll return after the operation so like Thursday or Friday. Wednesday night the two elders got a call that two elders who had to do visa papers in Lima would be staying with them. Wednesday night at about 10:30 there was a knock at the door and one elder covered in mud arrived. There had been a mudslide and the bus got stuck and he walked two miles in the mud to get to Lima. Thursday the elders got a second call from president saying that the other elder had been stuck on a bus for a day and a half in the same mudslide and president was going to send to more elders to pick him up and bring him back to the mission and he would do his papers later..... well, there were about four more mudslides and all three elders ended up walking through the first mudslide to lima. So Friday when our district leader called us there were six elders stuck in Lima. They should be back today.
So, anyway, that's been the highlight of the week.
I just want to let you all know that prayer works. Someone is definitely listening and He will respond. I've come to know that even more this week.
I love you all!!!! Enjoy your extra day of the year!
Love, Hermana White
