Happy New Year for everyone!!  I hope that you all had a good week, sounds like a crazy week!!  This week here was crazy too.    The work was kind of slow here just for the holidays still and a bunch of people left town but they are all coming back now so hopefully it will start to pick up again.  

I will say this about New Years Eve.  When it hit 12 o' clock and became the new year, holy cow.  I wish I could send you all the video.  The amount of fireworks there were and things burning in the street, it was unreal.  Everyone here has fireworks, and it isn't like the fireworks that we have in the street and that, no, everyone has huge aerial fireworks that they just launch.  They were literally all around us in every direction for miles and miles.  I really want you all to be able to see the video, it is crazy.  But that was our New Years.  It was the same rule as Christmas with how late we could be out.  OH, and here, the people make all these human sized dolls and burn them in the street, and they just burn a bunch of their old stuff.  So it is just like one big fire here on new years. 

Then new years day I wil say this line.....  DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A SNOWMAN??  No, it didn't snow here in Perù it is still very very hot and getting a lot hotter.  But as a zone we had permission to watch FROZEN on New Years day.  We watched it in Spanish but I was still singing along with all the songs.  And everyone was laughing, it was funny because I knew every word to all the songs still haha.  Only thing is the movie and the songs were in Spanish.  Also, on the 31st as a whole mission we got to watch the movie Meet the Mormons!  Wow, that was a powerful movie.  Is that in like all the theaters over there?  It should be?  The movie is not here.  Internet, movies, nada.  Because we tell members to search for it to watch it but they can't find it.  Maybe in time it will come.  But holy cow, that was such a good movie.  

We are already in the last week of this change.  Next week I could have a new comp.  Who knows, he has three changes here so he might have one more or he might go, we aren't sure.  All I know is that I really want to train someone.  That would be so fun I think!  So If my companion goes, I am hoping for that!  

Our church time in this ward is at 2.  From 2 to 5.  Then we have ward council after.  So I don't really like Sundays that much anymore haha.  We have two hours in the morning to teach, then we have lunch, then we go get people for church, then we have church, then we got out of ward council at 645.  So we just don't have a lot of time to teach on Sundays now.  So that is a bummer.  

In our sector we don't have anyone with a baptismal date.  We have one girl who has been an investigator for 1 year.  She comes to all the activities and comes to church every week but she doesn't have permission to get baptized.  She is 16 and doesn't have permission until she is 18.  So hopefully we can work with her mom, who loves us by the way, to have her be able to get baptized.  She says that she just wants her daughter to be stronger in the church before.  Then we have another lady that didn't want to get baptized because she sees bad examples around her in the church.  But she comes to church and has all the lesssons.  But someone told us yesterday that she wants to get baptized so we will see, hopefully yes. That is our sector right now and hopefully we will be able to find a lot of new people this week.  

I hope that you all have a wonderful week, remember to say your prayers and read your scriptures.  I love you all.
