Business! Ok. I got the package from Grandma B today that she sent me for Christmas... yea it's ok though. I got it. And everything was in it. Thanks a bunch Grandma! I'll have the couple missionaries make the cookies because no one has an oven other than them. Most people don't have one. There really isn't anything like baking here.
OK so Mala means "bad" that's why I say Mala la buena. I'm not really sure how to explain it in English. I hope that you all understand it ha ha. This week was the fastest week that I have had in the mission so far. I feel like I was sitting at the computer only yesterday. We are working with 6 families and prepping them for baptism. The catch is... 5 of them need to get married first before they can get baptized... it's really hard to get married in Peru and really expensive. So we are working with them to get all their papers ready so that we can get it all set and ready to go. Some friends of the Whitney's the couple missionary that is in Cañete have some friends that would like to help pay for everything and the North American family has friends that want to do the same, so awesome! We have a new person ready for baptism. His name is Ray and his older brother is a recent convert. His brother Pedro asked hm when he was going to get baptized and he told him that he needed to feel called to get baptized so that night he prayed to know if he should be baptized or not. The next day he said he was super happy all day and recognized it as his answer! We gave him the choice of being baptized the 13th or 20th of this month and he said the 13th! He is one of the smartest people that I have ever met. He is only sixteen and he helps his brother with his engineering math homework from college. We are really excited for him.
Oh man! We had s´mores this week! It was awesome! We had a family home evening with the family that we live with and we made s'mores with a real fire and real marshmallows and almost graham crackers. It was awesome!
Please let me know how I can send a letter to Steve. I'm really excited for him and hope that everything is going well for him, and For you Momma LeBaron!
