Week 100- Peru's Pokemon Invasion!

Well!! Where do I start for my last few emails. Not sure what to say anymore, but to give my weekly you go!

Well this week we had stake conference and it went well for the most part. We heard some great talks, from stake president, from Pres Herrera and Sister Herrera, and also a 70 came too. Elder Calderon was the Peru Cusco mission president from 2010-2013 so it was great to hear from him and receive some great councils on a Christ centered life. With our investigators, we did a lot better this week in finding some really cool new investigators that we are seeing can progress in these weeks. Alex is a new investigator and he has the desires to get baptized too, his is awesome! We are seeing a potential baptismal date for September and we know he can progress, he came to the conference too. But we are seeing a lot more progress in our area this week and hoping to see a lot more in the coming weeks. Well, really not much else is going on the work. But I have seen many miracles in helping so many people and its such a blessing to have a nametag with the Saviors name on it and represent him during these last few weeks of my mission. Sometimes the work gets hard, all of our lessons fail us or people dont accept the Gospel, but the blessings have come in my life and in the mission!

Also I did splits with Elder Palacios this week to help him out because we are the zone leaders and have the responsibility to help the missionaries in our zone. So we focused a lot on contacting and really having the spirit with us. He is doing well and we had a great time in our work visit. 

And the last thing.....pretty funny and Ive heard a lot about in from the states too. Pokemon! haha That game is crazy here, every park or tourist spot there are teenagers, adults, tourists, or whatever kind of person looking for freaking POKEMON!! I heard its worse in the states, and its crazy here too, but the work will continue! haha But hope you all have a great yall!!
