The Zone

Elder McMillan and "Friskies"

September 19, 2016

Hey friends and hey family! I love you all so much and am praying for you all. So this week was definately interesting and fun hahaha!

So we started in our new area which is really exciting! We have met new members of the Church and met awesome investigators! Our pench here is good too. She makes good food and is going make tacos for me tomorrow! I love food!

There are 4 new missionaries in my zone, and yes all are North Americans. They are all awesome and want to learn so much. It reminds me of when I started my mission and I didnt understand anything! haaha!!!

I was translating for them in one of the meetings we had, and it really is so hard to remember english. I dont remember anything. I will have to take english classes when I get home hahaha!

We have a multi zone tomorrow so we will eat some yummy food there as well  I hope!

I love you all. I have been reading in 3rd Nephi a lot. I am realizing that Jesus Christ is our Savior everytime I read a verse. Each chapter is a testimony that He lives! I testify with all of my heart and my soul that our Father in Heaven lives and so does his Son, our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. I love you all!

Love from Peru,

Well this next change I will be in the big city of Trujillo! I am so nervous but really excited! I love you all so much and I pray that you are all happy and healthy! 

This week was great! My pencionista is awesome! She cooks food that is so yummy! Hamburgers, hot dogs! I love it! I am pretty sure that I have gotten fat with her. She has a fat cat that is named Friskies, and I love him!

I am so happy to be here, to serve as a personal Representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. I testify with all of my heart that this work is real and True. This is the only true Church of Jesus Christ on the Earth!

I have realized this week that I am forgetting English. It is so hard to remember. One year more and I wont speak any more English. hahaha!

I love you all so much and I know this work is a work of love, glory, and beauty. I love you all!

Hey everyone! I am here writing a little earlier today! I love you guys so much and I know that this is the Church of Jesus Christ. He is our savior and he loves us.

This week I found something out that I hadn't realized before. God is God, but he is much more than just God, he is our loving Father in Heaven. He wants us to have happiness. He wants us to have joy. That is why he has given us his Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior. Through him, we will have much joy and much happiness.

I am still in moche. I will be changing to a new area next week. They are putting the zone leaders more in the city. I will be closer to the office and in the city of Trujillo!!

I love you guys so much and I hope you are all reading the Book of Mormon. Read it everyday. I love you all!!!!

Hey family!

Well I love you all much and I am so grateful for all of the love and support that we receive as missionary's. I love you all so so so much.  Sorry my English sucks hahaha!
This week was great.we were able to find new investigators.4 of them is a family. They are the family Azmad Rojas. They are awesome!

We are still working hard with the family abanto campos. President Rios this week came to my room this week and had a study with my companion and I. He told us that with the family we need to focus on the Atonement with the family. He said they will progress when we do that. We did a practice with him and It was so awesome!

Well this week I hit a year in  the mission and I cant even believe it! it is crazy. I wish it wouldn't go by so fast! I love the mission so so so much. testify that this is the most important work on the earth. The salvation of Gods children. I testify that God has a plan for every single one of us- for everyone, not only a few people, for everyone! I love you all!

Love from Peru,
