This week a missionary returned from his mission. His name is Omar Cordova and he is amazing. We are teaching many people in his family because they are not all baptized yet. He is super nice and when he came home he told every member of his family the importance of going to church and reading the Book of Mormon. He has such a rock solid testimony.
This has been a strange week. I am not a huge fan of holidays in Peru because it usually means that people start drinking in the street. It makes me sad because so many people are missing the point of religious holidays. They are always there to help us remember, reflect, and better the world.
This week our P-day is split up. This morning we had our zone meeting and tomorrow we are going to a museum because it isn't open on Monday. I am excited because Pedro, one of our members will be our tour guide, and he will combine the history with the Book of Mormon.
So today we went to my favorite restaurant in Chiclayo. It is called Brother’s and it is like a little slice of the USA. The owner loves the missionaries and it was fun to go as a zone. His restaurant is tiny so it was funny to see so many people crammed together eating. The owner (Mike) took a bunch of pictures with us and is a super nice guy.
This month our area has the challenge to read the Book of Mormon. It has been such a blessing to talk with all of our members about the Book of Mormon. I have really learned that we can learn the history of Christ through the Bible, but if we want to grow Close to Him we must read the Book of Mormon.
