Wow! It sounds like our family is busy!!!Before I begin, I have a question for the Welch's. What the heck is Mason doing in Peru?! When did that happen?! Dad wrote a paragraph about Mason heading to Peru to build schools? I need information! Also, Brigham is going to Nauvoo?! I have a companion who is serving there! Tell him to look for a Sister Searle! She is awesome! :) She was only in our mission for a couple months but is back in Nauvoo. And Happy Anniversary Bridget and Jared! :)
This area is a lot different from my last area. This is a smaller town, has had missionaries many years, and is so close to SVU so they all think this is part of our curriculum. I'm not going to SVU!!! :) But, we just have to find new ways of finding. This may sound weird, but I feel like I was meant to come here! Each person I meet reminds me of someone from home, or I feel like I've met them before! It is odd! I love it! I feel like I'm home! It has rained everyday since I've been here, and my hair is getting bigger and bigger, but I love it! Oh and let's just say, I think the norm is 100% humidity. Wow! We felt it our first day as we raked up hay for a member in the ward. :)
Fun story: We went up to this little house in the mountains to teach a lesson and the little girl was handing me what I thought was a fake lizard, until it moved in my hand! Good thing I can handle lizards! I then got to hold a pet rat at another home! I love the wildlife here! It is everywhere!
