Hello! My name is Elder McCook. I am a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Serving in the Peru Arequipa Mission for 24 months. In the Spanish language. I will be returning July 2016. As a missionary, I teach the gospel of Jesus Christ and invite all to draw nearer to him. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world.
This past week we were
greeted by "rain". It was the
closest thing torain
I´ve seen in Peru. It was a semi-heavy drizzle. Everyone
was freaking out, people were outside with trash bags on theirheads and all the dogs were in a state of shock. They also turned offall the power.
Days later we went on an
hour drive to come pick up beds froman area that was closed this past exchange. 4 missionaries went andthere weren’t enough seats in the front so me and my
companion sat in thetrailer bed. An hour nap later I woke up sun burned I was
so red... the sistermissionaries
gave me some Aloe Vera plants to cut up and apply tothe burn. I did
that for the past 2 days and now my legs arepurplish.
The missionaries’ farmers
tan is coming in great for this summer. At
leastI get to
wear a sombrero and sunglasses, this is the only area in thewhole mission where we have permission to do so.
We found more than a
handful of new investigators. One of my
favorite questions to ask when contacting is(let’s see how this works in English)"have you ever had a religious question in which
you have not receiveda satisfying
week people asked about Sabbath Day observance, infant baptism,and tithing.
I feel so happy to have
the scriptural and testimonial knowledge to beable to answer all of the
questions, the church is true.
