crazy week


The reason I'm writing late is because we got up early and had Zone Pday going to a place called Caral in our zone, which are ancient ruins.  They are the most ancient ruins discovered in the Americas, and the second most ancient in the world.  We're talking 5000 years ago.  It was so cool! I took lots of pictures.  We couldn't touch anything but it was fun to see and take pictures and speculate about Jaredites, haha. 
So this week was pretty crazy and we only got like 3 1/2 days of proselyting, but it was still a good week!
So this week we had to move apartments because there was a single man living in our old building so we had to find a new apartment and found one that is perfect! It's beautiful, but the only problem is that it's like 60 degrees because the main window faces the ocean (beautiful) but has a cold breeze.  And the window doesn't really shut well haha.  But it's awesome.  So, Mom, it looks like we both spent some time packing this week! Along with Dad and Matt and Jessica and everybody.  
So we got all moved in and then the next day we traveled to Lima for the mission leadership council which was awesome! President read to us and discussed with us a talk called "The unwritten order of things" given by Pres. Packer at a BYU devotional I think. It was aweome and he talked a lot about becoming better leaders and being "quick to observe." Then the asistants did a training on the commandments and they asked Hna Leyva and I to do a demonstration on teaching Tithing which was nerve wracking front of Pres. and all the leaders, but it turned out well. 
Right now we are teaching the Huaman family which is an awesome family that is VERY humble.  They all came to church again which was great and they have their bap. date for the 23rd so we are working with them for that.  
Other than that I can't think of much that happened but life is good and I'm happy.  My companion goes home in three weeks, crazy! Luckily she's awesome and keeps working and we are excited to see what else there is to come here!
Thanks for everything! Love you!
