"It's almost April and I'm a Tomato here"

So hello there everybody I am so happy to be here and have the opportunity to write you all about how this last week was in the mission.

So let me just say I cant believe that next week is changes again. Time flies like crazy out here in the mission. I love Elder Velasquez and the work we have been able to do together!

This week we had two investigators in church. One of them is Janella. She is 16 years old and her mom is an investigator as well but couldn't go to church. Janella is awesome and is going to Seminary as well. she went to Trujillo with her cousin who is member and went to seminary with her in Trujillo. Janella loves the Church and she is awesome!!

The other investigator was Mary. She is from Valles de Dios. She is awesome as well and wants to be baptized. 

This week I taught Principles of the Gospel which if you didn't know is a class during Sunday school. I talked about the Life of Jesus Christ. It was a really fun lesson for me. I love talking about Jesus Christ and his life. He is our Savior, and with him, we can do all things!

I love you all and I hope and pray that all is well.

Love from Peru,

Elder McMillan

Hello everybody! So I love you all and I hope that you are all doing great. 

This week has been absolutely awesome for me. We found 3 new investigators this week. One of them is Hermano John. He is really awesome and his girlfriend is a member. they live together and have 1 kid. They want to get married and we are helping them with the papers, but his papers are in Lima so we are going to find a way to get them here in Chao haha!

So everything is going well with Mary loo. Her daughter is Arecely and she is a member. Mary loo just had another baby and her name is Maya Aleska Recopa. Everything is good with the baby and Mary loo wants to be baptized and be in the church with her daughter.

We have worked a lot this week in the other Cities where we are. Nuevo chao and Valle de Dios. Everything is good and we are working a lot there now. We were in the other cities everyday this week. It was awesome but it is like a mountain desert. So we were walking in heat. My arms got burnt this week and my face ....... and my neck haha!

I love you all so much and all of you go watch the new Mormon message hallelujah for Easter!

OK everyone I am here! I love you all so much and I hope that everything is going great for you all!

So first things first, I don't drink soda anymore and I buy Doritos only every other day haha! My district loves to work out and really that means that they are my trainers. I can actually do one Pull up now haha! Isn't that great??? I am getting some more strength haha! We run and do work outs so that is good for me. It is helping me get skinnier and stronger!

So We have 3 investigators that need marriage, and my companion and I are going to help them get married! We are so excited to help them and hope they can get married soon so they can be baptized!

I realized that General Conference is in less than a month now and I CANT WAIT because I love general conference so much! It will be great to just hea from the Prophet and the 12 apostles and hear things that I need personally.

So we sang The Spirit of God in church and I about started sobbing! It is such a good song and it just gave me such happiness to be singing this hymn in a different language with these people that I love so much. I just love them so much and I wish the best for every single one of them.

I have almost 5 weeks now with Elder Velasquez! Time flies by so quick! 

Love from Peru,

So everyone the reason why I am writing today is because we changed our p-day to today because we went to the temple!   I haven't been able to go for 5 months and I needed it so much! I testify to you all that this is the truth and that the temple is the house of the Lord.  I challenge every single one of you to go to the temple once a week or once every 2 weeks!  It was a great experience at the temple and I hope you all can go. I love the temple.

We found 3 new investigators this week and we're really happy with them. We're really happy to be working in Chao. I love Chao so much!

We tried to rescue Cesar this week but he didn't go to church this week so we are really going to try and help him a lot this week to be a saved soul!

So I am in Alma in the Book of Mormon in Spanish and am loving it. I t is so fun to be able to speak more or less another language hahaha!

I love you all and hope everything is going well. This is the true church and Jesus Christ is our savior!!!!
Love from Peru,

Elder McMillan
