So that was the fun part of the week, to receive my new companion and get to work in Urcos again haha. Also this week, a member of the branch passed away and he was a member from about 2 years ago.....but he was old....like 88 years old. So we attended his viewing and his funeral to help support the family of the members and the family of this brother are members too. So we spent the day doing that....it was sad, but we know that he is in a better place waiting for his family in the future. So it was a different experience with the funeral than normal.....because here in Peru they do it different. Basically they take the casquet? I dont remember how to spell that. But they take the body by hand or on shoulders and have abig parade to the cemetery. Kinda like the cars in the states when we go to the cemetery. But we did our best to support the family and support the branch in all we could do. So not much else happened, just super excited to see what is next for Elder Palacios and I, so we will see what we can accomplish this week!!! Well until next week!!
