FAMILY! I miss you and love you all!
I am now in my second area! Chosica! It´s know for it´s bugs and is the most provincia type area we have in Mision Lima Este! I love it. WE have huge dirt cerros with brick houses and ramshackle stone steps and dirt pathways. I feel like I´m in the movie Aladan everytime. But also in our area we have city center with all the parks and stores. It´s beautiful here! Chosica has big green trees and it reminds me of Oregon!
So last week in Las Viñas I has a really cool experience with reciving an anwers to a prayer! I wrote to president in Spanish more or less so I´ll just send that. ahaha I would write it again but time it short! I can´t promise it´ll make sence....
En Las Viñas yo estaba con Hermana Ocampo (con prosimio) por la noche de cambios. Ellas tuvieron un investigador se llama Oscar que ellas no saben donde vive por exacto porque sus padres no les gustan la iglesia y siempre su lecciones están en el hogar de un miembro. Y cuando estábamos caminando en la calle de Oscar Hermana Ocampo me dijo, Oscar vive por aquí pero no sabemos su dirección. Yo dije, vamos a orar y preguntar, Dios va a contestar! Ella me dijo, Como!? Jaja, pero yo sabia sin duda El podría darnos la dirección en una manera o un otro. Fuimos cerca un arbole y oraremos. Y después Hermana Ocampo veo un miembro joven que vive en el mismo calle. Ella le pregunto, Sabe donde vive Oscar? El nos ensenó una casa en el otro lado de la calle. Fuimos a la casa pero no fue correcto. Pero Hermana Ocampo dijo, tal-vez la próximo casa! Intentamos y fue correcto! Oscar no estaba en su casa pero su hermana dijo el vive hay. Después sus padres lleguen y tuvimos que salir. Pero la experiencia fue bien bonita! Con fe podemos recibir respuestas y guía! Yo se El Señor esta con nosotros cada paso del camino!
LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! You´re amazing!

Familia y amigos!
What a crazy week we´ve had! I´ve got two stories to share!
First, our very own Liberty Jail. (Okay, I´m being dramatic but really...)
So, this Wednesday Hermana Hazelton and I were really excited to work! We had lessions booked for every hour! Everyday we leave our house, and Wednesday was just like anyother day. We live in a house with a member of the church. And her house just like all the other house here in Peru has a gate around it. So, like normal we shut the house door behind us and go to unlock the gate door. BUT WE DIDN¨T HAVE THE KEYS!!!! We were stuck in between the house and the gate all day! FOR 7 HOURS!!!!!! I didn´t wait long to write a note and find a lady walking by to help! I said ma`am, can you help us? we´re locked between the house and the gate and have no way out. Will you give this note to our friend who lives on the next street so she can help us? And the old lady said NO. That she didn´t have time! AND SHE LIVED ON THE sAME STREET! I was thinking, well, you can either be a good sameratin or a crappy pharasee.. but explained how we were trapped and would be grateful if she could even just leave the note outside the door. Por fin she took the note! I was so grateful! About an hour or two passed by when Gabriel( a member in our ward) came up and said Hermanas! Need help? We were surprised to see gabriel and ask Grabriel, how did you know we were here? He said Cesar told me. We asked How did Cesar know?! He explained how Bishop told him! And how did Bishop know!? Jokingly he said, It´s on facebook hermanas! AH!!!! Ah! Que vergüenza! jajajaja No, Sheyla our pensionista called bishop. But I am short on time and can´t explain the details but long story short, we were trapped for seven hours, had lunch passed to us through the gate and missed all of our appointments. OH, and last week we lost our cell phone so that didn´t help. haha oh mercy, but the work is still moving forward!
I had another story more spiritual but only have 3 minutes left.But I´ll save it for next week!
I LOVE YOU ALL!
