Week 70 - Huaraz

his week was a great week. It was interesting and a little bit challenging at times, but it was still a great one. Many people have gone on vacations so it was tough to find a ton of people to teach, but our legs are a little bit stronger after walking a little extra this week.
Last Monday we got to go play soccer with the second councilor in our ward along with the other companionship in our ward and a few members. It was pretty fun! The people here are pretty good.
This past week we have gotten to visit Hermana Estela a couple of times and we also got to visit her sister, Hermana Delia, as well. They are doing well and have really sincere desires to learn, but they don't really like to read very much. We are trying to help them to read the Book of Mormon a little bit more so they can strengthen their testimonies of the restoration.
This week we also got to visit Hermana Agripina, Hermana Roxana and Hermana Yaquelin a little bit. They are doing well. They are still studying their Books of Momon and had a few questions for us. It is so important that we can keep them holding fast to the iron rod.
The people here in Peru are so generous. Many times this week the people that we were visiting gave us paneton and hot chocolate to drink. Paneton is a big loaf of sweet bread with little pieces of fruit in it. Its actually pretty good. I am very grateful for the generosity of the people here, but I'm pretty sure that I dont need to eat páneton again for a while! I actually said to my companion on Saturday night, after being so full of paneton, that I never wanted to eat it again. It was funny, however, because when the sacrament tray came around on Sunday I realized that they used paneton for the bread. I had to laugh a little bit about that.
It was a great week and I am excited for one more week in the work. I know that the principles of the gospel bless our lives. I am grateful for Jesus Christ and for his atonement. I know that thanks to him we can always become better.
