One of the Elders in my District, Elder Mackey, got his visa yesterday, and he left for Peru at 6:00 this morning. It was really sad that he left, because he was an amazing Elder. He was an amazing example to me. It is even more sad, because I won't see him in Cusco because he is going to Lima Central.
After that, the rest of my district went to the Travel office to see what was going to happen to us. They went through a list and one by one told every Elder in my district that the MTC was going to hold them for two more weeks, and send them as Visas come (supposedly we should all get ours in the next two weeks). But then the weirdest thing happened. They got to me and looked at the list, then clarified my name and where I was going. They checked about 3 times and still couldn't find me. Then they told me to come in tomorrow (today) and they would try to figure it out.
I went to the Travel office today, and they still couldn't find me, even in the Computer. I'm not sure Exactly what that means, but the lady told me not to worry, they would figure it out. She told me to just stay here at the MTC with the rest of my district, and that they would let me know if they find anything out. So, I guess I'm here at the MTC for another 2 weeks (hopefully less).
The MTC is Super amazing! I would have never thought that in 5 weeks I could be speaking Spanish like I am. Of course, It is far from perfect, and I have a very limited vocabulary, but I can say just about anything that I want to say. The Gift of Tongues is Real!! It is pretty amazing.
Anyways, I'm loving the work, and enjoying every minute. Elder Cooper is the best Companion that I could ever ask for!!
