November 16, 2015

Well my first exchange in the field is officially over! That is crazy might I just say. This change has been so amazing and I have learned so much in these first 6 weeks as a missionary. So I love you all and I hope all is well.

So this week I had a goal to only speak in Spanish the whole time as much as I could. I did it. It was hard, but this goal made me realize that I speak way more than I used to. I still spoke in English at times, but when I remembered, I really tried to speak in Spanish. I speak a lot, but now need to learn how to understand everything hahaha!!!!!

We had a bad week with investigators and less actives at church. NO one showed up. I was pretty bummed but got over it. hah! I just know this church is true and I want them all to be a part of it.We will definitely work harder to get them to church this week.

So I found out yesterday that just me and not my companion, only me, I get to teach principles of the gospel class next Sunday. I am nervous! I know it will be good though haha! I decided I will talk about the atonement because that is what I know best.

So every one says I am getting skinnier. Elder Volquez turned to me today and said you look skinnier. I definitely feel skinnier haha! I still drink coca cola a lot but not Diet coke Jessica so it doesn't count haha!

We had an activity on Friday called noche de juegos, game night. Only about 15 members showed up like an hour late! we played musical chairs and it was so funny haha! I love the members so so so much. They are all so sweet and kind. I love them. Most of them are willing to teach with us when we need as well which is great.

I love you all so so so much. This work is so beautful and powerful. It is amazing to realize this is exactly where I NEED TO BE. I am so thankful for the opportunity to serve. I love you all!!!! Remember with The Lord, and faith in the Lord, all is possible!!!!

Love from Peru,

Elder McMillan
