Week 7 - First Area (Caraz)

Here is the e-mail I received this week from Elder Miller, he didn't include a summary but I'm going to post the e-mail he sent to me.  Remember the up and downs we have only make us stronger.  This is his first week in his area (no more training center).  Sounds very interesting.  It sounds like he has a nice place to live and someone to cook for him?  What?!  If you get a chance, shoot him an e-mail.  Remember to stay positive and keep it brief.  He may not have time to respond but I'm sure he would love some "mail" from family & friends alike.

From Elder Miller
Hey mom thanks for the email! Happy birthday to the best Mom ever!!!! I swear I didn't forget about it. I was telling my district at the CCM that I forgot to mention it in my email and they were laughing at me. I had to part ways with Elder Klein. He is in the Lima North mission. This mission is really cool. My first area is Caraz. It has tons of agriculture and mountains which is awesome. It has been a much different week. My new companion is from Paraguay. He is awesome and he speaks pretty good English which is such a blessing. The members here are super awesome. There's not more than 50 at church I don't think but its ok. hopefully we can change that. President and Sister Rios are so awesome! Sister Rios makes sure that we are taken care of with a good apartment and everything which is nice. The first day we got to go to the mission home and have an awesome meal there. It was soooo good. Out here in the field has been much harder than I expected, however. I am super homesick. I really miss you and dad and Emmy and Montana and the rest of the family. I know that I can do this, but at first its going to be really hard. Thank you for your strong example and testimony mom. You are the best mom ever. You are the one of the ladies that Jeffrey R. Holland talked about in conference. I love you tons! I might need some tough love these next few weeks with some prayers too please. I am so proud of everything that you are doing and have done. I hope you had tons of fun in Canada. I'm jealous of the Thanksgiving food! We have a pensionista who cooks every meal for us which is super nice. She is trained on what to feed us so that we don't get sick. The food is alright out here. We have taught a few lessons and I contribute where I can because my Spanish is restricting, but my companion is very good at helping me. Be safe please mom. Thank you for all that you do! Thanks especially for taking care of my animals while i am gone. I got one of the letters that you and dad sent me when I got to Trujillo so that was an awesome surprise. I will do a summary next week. If you want you can make a summary of what I have written this week for the blog. Sorry for not doing a summary.
I love you to the moon stars and back again forever!

Must be his new area. How cool is that?

Not sure what happened to the pic, it only shows half of him.  :-)
From Google: 

Caraz is a town in the Caraz District in the southeastern part of Huaylas Province of the Ancash Region in Peru. Recent investigations propose that its political creation was dated on 12 February 1821, when Grl. San Martín, while staying in Huaura founded 4 Departments, including Huaylas as one of them, with its capital, the city of Caraz. Later on 1857, it was split in two, giving birth to the new young Province of Huaraz. The District of Caraz was created by the Administration of Liberation of Don Simón Bolivar, legitimized by law on December 29, 1857, and sanctioned a year later. The city of Caraz became the capital of the Province of Huaylas on July 25, 1857. .
