Helaman 5:12 "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Our meal, plain boiled potatoes, no salt; boiled eggs, no salt; tostado with salt... no drink!
Llama attack! :)
Elder Black bathing in the "glory" of llamas...
Sorry again, but I don't have to much time to write (only 25 minutes). There's really not a whole lot to write when you're not even in your own sector much....But we don't have anyone with baptismal date right now =(. The only problem is that they don't go to church. Little poops lol. We do have 1 really awesome investigator though that goes every week...Tito! He's doing pretty good as far as the assistance goes, but he isn't reading or praying. To help him out with that I've put an alarm on my phone to remind me to call him and remind him to read. Hopefully it'll work =). As far as things with Isabel...She didn't go to church and she's still not married. I guess her and her husband don't really get along with the family well and they feel like rejects. For that reason they haven't talked with their parents to see about the wedding. The parents here are the ones who run the wedding, so they need to work through them. Kind of stinks but that's how it is...
Still waiting here for my companion....He'll get here in about 2.5 weeks....almost....But we're doing good here.
Funny thing of the week: So we had a few funny experiences this week. In Pucará, Elder Miranda's and Ramirez's sector, they have an investigator named Rafael. He's 88 years old and pretty much deaf. He's a funny old guy lol. He agrees with anything that we teach him. He's been catholic his whole life and doesn't really know how to pray. So we taught him how to pray and he asked us, "So from now on I'm going to pray like this?". Yup. "Oh. Okay =)". Then we invited him to church this week and he asked, "So every sunday I'll be going to church with you guys". Yup. "Oh. Okay =)". Then he asked us about some Virgen Mary pictures that he had and he asked if he could keep them. We told him "no, we're going to throw them away". "Oh that's fine. I just wanted to be sure". Lol. He's funny. He's always how that he can die in peace because now that we're visiting him there will be someone that'll find him when he dies. He says that he'll be with us until the death because he's commited himself to be with us until the end. So funny
Also an old homeless guy kissed my hand, and 2 drunk girls wanted us to come into their house.....uh....no thanks lol.
Today we had an activity and we went on a tour through some covered pyramids. There were about 140 llamas and they ate salt right out of your hand. Pretty cool =)
