Week 52

What up fam? We`ll see how much I can get into this letter this week. 

So we were working with Maura this week, our investigator that was gonna get baptized on Saturday and everything was going really well. We finished all the lessons and whatnot and our District Leader interviewed her.  She passed the interview but on Saturday morning we got a call from her son, who is the second counselor in the bishopric and he told us that she actually had some problems in the past and would need to be interviewed by President Amato. So we had to schedule that because she is going on vacation as well since this weekend is Independence Day here in Peru. But everything will turn out fine she is super excited to be baptized. 

Wednesday we had our zone conference with Pres. Amato. We were the first ones to be interviewed so we had to wake up at 5:30. But the interview was interesting, it was with him and his wife and they just asked get to know you questions. He is a really great guy and I already love him a ton. Turns out that they love football so that is cool! Haha he asked me what my plans for after the mission were and I told him I was gonna go play for the Aggies and he and his wife were super happy about that. We ate lunch with his family as well and got to know his kids. It went until like 4 in the  afternoon and we got back, taught a lesson, and had to return because we had two baptismal interviews there so it was a long day. 

We also found out this week that two of our other investigators, that are having problems getting married because of some debt, really actually owe nothing! A guy in the ward helped us out and looked up their information and turns out they owe like 80 soles instead of  2000 haha so we are super happy about that because they are excited to get married now and then be baptized. 

Today is our prep-day, we are heading to the temple at noon so that's why 
I am writing so early in the morning. I am super excited to be able to go to the temple today. I'm taking two questions with me...first, how can I be more charitable, and second, how to be a better leader. If you guys have any good insight or talks or anything I would be happy to read them. I don't really know what else we are going to do today, maybe go to Papa Johns because there is one close by but it will take up pretty much all of p-day! 

on Wednesday we have another council of the twenty. It will be interesting to be there with Pres Amato and see how he directs things and whatnot. the training he gave in our zone conference was super cool and super powerful so I am hoping it's just like that again. We are trying to set the goal for our zone for August. This months goal was 18 and we only pulled out like 12 because everyone went on vacation. August should go fairly well. 

But ya, I'm doing great. Learning a lot of good stuff about who I am and how to do things and whatnot. Pretty cool. This transfer is pretty long... But ya that's about all for this week, talk to you next week.
Much Love,
Elder Mortenson
