El obra misional va a bien! Tenemos nuevos investigadores y hemos invitado tres investigadores para bautismo. Nunca fachas todavía pero puedo ver que nuestras investigadores están progresando en fe! Este semana fuimos a el Templo! Me encanta el Templo! Yo pregunté Padre Celestial para ayúdame reconocer susurras del Espíritu Santo y mas tarde que día yo pude me mejor para actuar en cada impresión! Lo fue un grande aprendiendo experiencia! Actuando en cada impresión conducía para bien resultados! Ahora, siento mas confidencia en me capacitad para seguir las impresiones del Espíritu Santo. Semana mejor todavía! 

Oh mercy, can I just say how much I miss you all! The work has been going great! Being brand new to a newly established area started off a little slow but things are picking up! The people of Peru are amazing. So many people are willing to share their beliefs and want to learn more about the Savior. I can see their faith through their eyes and it´s incredible.

We have a handful of investigators in our area and a lot of future investigators. Future investigators are people we meet in the street or at their door who want to learn more later in the week. We meet and talk to with over 100 people a week! It`s awesome! 

My Spanish feels like it`s progressing slowly but my friends say they can see the difference. I just need to do my best and be pacient! Oh mercy, all this Spanish makes it impossible to remember how to spell in English! hahaha, Los siento! Also, I´ve said a lot of things in the past 13 days in Spanish that were NOT what I ment to say. I`ve said a few things missionaries just don`t say! Haha, but not on perpouse! 

OH! So I feel the need to share with you one experience from my first week in the field. My companion and I are walking down the side walk and I hear a Tarzan/ George of the Jungle call so I look up and see a young boy hanging from the branch of a tree while his friend shook the tree as hard a possible. I laughed to hard! I love kids!

Second! Natalie, please don´t hate me for life...... but last night our pensionista made this awesome sopa (soup) with GUEINI PIG!!!!!!!! I thought it was a slab of pork! It tasted just like pork but Nayale (one of the daughts who I LOVE!!) told me it was gueini pig! I was so excited to have finially tried it but felt a little bad.I´M sorry Natalie! Know that I love you more than eating gueini pigs and I hope you forgive me! 

So! My favorite thing is praying in the temple! I can feel the God hears my prayers and the comfort of the Spirit is so incredibly strong! We got to go to the temple as a disctrict this week! I prayed that God would help me recongize the promptings of the Spirit and help give me the courage to act on each one! Later that day I felt small promptings to walk down a particular street, or knock on a certin door! And each time we found someone who was receptive to our message and wanted to learn more! It´s hard reconizing the spirit sometimes. It often feels like a thought or a feeling of truth.It`s easy to ignore but more often than not if its the Spirit I recieve the same prompting again if I am tempted to ignore it. As I`ve put forth greater effort to follow each prompting I´ve notice the work is much easier when I allow God to guide me! 

P.S. I LOVE studying the scriptures! Nothing invites the spirit like prayer and reading the scriptures. I have a true testimony of that! Family, you should try praying and reading the scriptures as a family cada día! I can promise you will be blessed! I wish I had that habit before I left on my mission. I have learned and grown so much just by doing those two things each day since being on my mission! 

I feel like I`ve been writing forever but I see that I haven`t written much! I`m sorry friends and family! I´ll send some photos now since I didn´t have time last week! I LOVE YOU ALL!

Tiffanee, Thank you so much for all that you do and I LOVE YOU AND MISS you like crazy! You`re emails brighten my week! #ladytime

Katie, I MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU! Thank you so for the email! You crack me up! I miss you like crazy! I seriously basically cried... ahahah.Katie! Try for the soft ball thing! You would make an AMAZING coach! You have the ablility to motivate and encourage people! Thats not something everyone can do! You are a great teacher and leader and I can see you being amazing as a coach! I wish I had time to respond to everything you wrote me! Know that I love you and I`ll try to write you a letter!

Oh! And if anyone wants to write me letters (MOM) you might want to try DEARELDER.COM, fill in my mission home address and send it that way. It costs a dollar but I might get it sooner! Okay, 5 mins to send photos! Ill try to be quick! 


Oh and NATALIE!! I love and miss you with all my heart and pray for you everyday and KNOW that you would make an amazing missionary! You should think about it! You have such a loving heart and I know you could be an amazing instrument in the hands of the lord! Just ponder it! I LOVE YOU and am so proud of you! 


Oh Ty! I love you too!

First email from the mission field!

Querido familia y amigos,

¿Que Pasa? Tango síes días en el campo. Es muy divertido! Me encanta la gente de Perú! Son muy amables! Me encanta me compañera! Ella es de Trujillo Peru! Ella tiene mucha paciencia con mi español. Me ensena mucho. He aprendido mas en los pasados síes días luego del CMM. ;)

La comida aquí es muy bueno! Pero nos don de comer mucho! Cada vez siento como si comiera todo un caballo! 

El trabajo es muy animado! Me encanta conoce personas nueve y compartiendo me testimonio de Jesucristo! Tenemos nuevo investigadores y visitamos familias menos activos! Yo llegar a ser mejor a hablando con cada personas yo vi! Y encontrémonos y ensenamos mío contactos de Sábado pasado cuando yo fue a la CCM. Estoy muy animada a ser aquí en Las Veñas! 

Anywho, don't be impressed, I wrote that before write this email! Mission life is going great! I have a new companion! Hermana Sagastegui! She's amazing! It was so funny, last night when visting a family she opened up a Liahona (Ensign) and flipped to a page with her picture on it!!! Hermana Segastegui is the first girl of peru to enter the mission field at age 19! I think I remember seeing her picture in the Ensgin too! You should look and let me know if you find it! From July 2013!

So! My companion and I are in the nicest area called Las Veñas! I area split our first day so we have Las Veñas alta! Brand spank'n new! Are we're both new to the area entirely! So I guess the Lord really trusts us!

This last week we've found new investigators and have gotten to know the families of the ward! And I've been doind my best to talk to everyone I come in contact with! My spanish is HORRIBLE but I'm so excited to learn!!! 

Our aparment is way nice! I feel really lucky! However, the Sister missionaries are always placed in the nicer areas! Haha, poor Elders. 

We have a penciónista! Hermana Gonzalas! Her and her family are so nice and beautiful! I wanted to get a picture with them today but I forgot! The food is always amazing! However, I think the people here think if they feed us more they get more blessings! Probably true but I'm going to get so fat! Hahaha. We eat all that we're given and each time I feel like I just walked away from a Thanks Giving feast! 

This last Sunday was stake conference! The apostles had a speacial message for the people of Peru! I heard what they said was really beautiful! I listened of course, however didn't understand much! It was broadcasted but filmed in Peru I believe! 

Oh! I had an interview with my Mission President! He told me to tell you (Mom and Dad) thank you for sending such a wonderful daughter and that I'm going to make a great missionary! What kind words! He also told me that if I work hard I'll be able to say and understand all that I need to in Spanish in TWO MONTHS! WOW! What an amazing blessing. I'll have to work my tail off but I know that the Lord helps those who give their best! 

I LOVE YOU ALL! I want to send some photos! Know that I love and miss you all! 

Please forward this email to Katie, Claire and Moroni!!! Let them know I love and miss them!!!

P.S. Even though I barely speak spanish I still find a way to rave about Ty! Hhahahaha! Everyone loves it! 

Until next week!

P.S. Sorry I was unable to write last week, we didn't get a PDAY!


Hermana Cornu
