¡Feliz Dia del PADRE!(

Not only is it a day for our earthly fathers, but more importantly for our Heavenly one.  I am infinitely grateful, first of all, to Him.  Also, Happy (late) Fathers Day to my awesome dad! Thank you for all you do for

me and the fam. My most faithful writer on the mish. I am so grateful for your example and support in my life.  Like Ramses, my dad = number 1.

So this week was great.  On Monday we went to Matucana again (my third time) but I cant complain.  Its super nice to get out to nature and enjoy a pretty (steep) hike up to a waterfall and get out of the dirty city areas.  We had a great time as a zone and enjoyed our last p-day all together before transfers.  Im super blessed to have been in areas outside of Lima like Chaclacayo and Chosica these last 6 months and to be able to go out to places like Matucana!

This week we have been working hard with Julian.  He couldnt accept the earthquake as his answer because it hit all of the country.  We were saying that surely the timing of it wasnt a coincidence and the fact that he kept praying showed his faith for sure.  But yeah, we arent giving up on him. Our zone leaders came with us to a lesson with him and we talked a lot about repentance and how taking all the necessary steps, including confessing to God (even though he already knows), we can feel free from any pain or worry that could impede us from feeling the Spirit fully.  I dont think he has anything huge to resolve, but he sure wont be able to feel with a certainty if thats not cleared up.  He committed to doing so and so things are looking up.

We still havent seen much of the effects of the World Cup here... maybe the "Chosicanos" dont like soccer that much... hahaha KIDDING.  There were plenty of people out partying these past few nights but we, as always, have been protected by the hand of the Lord. No worries here!

So a random funny thing that happened yesterday: we have had a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in our apt (some sister before us left it) and we decided to make it.  Hermana Hazelton and I were excited to eat something American and we brought it to our pensionistas house last night to make for dinner.  Hermana Llavilla, Hermana Giusti, and our pensionista were excited to try it.  We made it and it turned out well... except for the fact that there were tons of dead ants all sprinkled in there.  The ants had gotten into the box in our apt. and we didnt realize they were in the noodles until AFTER we finished making it haha.  It was pretty funny/sad haha.  I tried to separate the ants but I gave up and just ate it because I wanted mac and cheese so badly... Ive eaten weirder stuff, haha.  Sometimes the mission makes you do crazy things!

But yeah, overall a good week.  I cant think of much more to say right now... remember to MAKE GOOD CHOICES! :))

That is all.

Cuidense muuucho les quiero! Love yall more than a Peruvian loves rice!
