January 11, 2016 ~ Week 80

My weeks are getting a lot better.  We are starting from ground zero with people to teach, but contacting is a lot of fun.  We have a good contacting tactic that works here but would not work at all in the states, it goes a little something like this "do you speak English?"

We had our mission leadership conference this past week and we learned so much about the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Better ways to get references and the first 12 weeks, the church will be doing a worldwide broadcast on the 20th for missionaries on the first 12 weeks.  So we need to get prepared for that.

Changes are in February and I think I’ll get changed because I have been here 6 months.

This past week I got a big bug bite on my fore arm. The Peruvian cure tactic is to draw a circle in pen around the bite then stab the middle
of it, and it will go down and not itch.  I learned that in my first area and it worked but these mosquitos in Arequipa have got to be on
steroids because the bite was only getting bigger.  A member told me to put toothpaste on it. It itched so bad and it’s not like I can scratch it.  I applied some toothpaste on it and... it worked, I don’t know how it worked but if you have a killer bite put some toothpaste on it.
