Greetings family and friends!

Another week down in my mission in Pátapo, Peru and things are going swell. Hermana Hawks and I are prospering in our companionship and our investigators are progressing in this area we have opened up. I have so much to write and so little time so here are some little sweet moments from this week. 

First of all, Spanish can be frustrating. I came to terms with it a few weeks ago but sometimes it can still be frustrating. This week, however, I learned something beautiful about this language. This might actually be really cheesy but it was a nice spritual moment for me haha--My comp and I were walking down one of the calles here in Patapo and I looked up at the sky to a beautiful sunset. The clouds were the perfect amount of fluff and pink, purple, and orange painted the sky. I asked what the word for sky was and learned that "cielo" means sky. As I continued, I realized that los cielos means heaven, and I thought it was just beautiful that for a language that I cant describe everything I want to, the sky and the heavens are all the same because they are Gods. Just a sweet moment. 


I love the definition of Charity from the Bible dictionary. "The highest, noblest, strongest kind of love, not merely affection; the pure love of Christ." Just beautiful. I dont have any more time but just ponder that everyone!! I am loving my mission and hope all is well wherever you may be.
