Family and Friends,
Wow, This was a Crazy and busy week. I am just going to talk about a few of the major events that happened.
Baptism of Stefany
I had my first (official) Baptism this week!! I know that is a little confusing, but in Sicuani Percy and Soledad were baptized (see my email from May 27). But the thing is that they weren´t really my investigators. They were Investigators of elder Neff and Elder Calderón. I just happened to teach them a few times. But Stefany was the first investigator that I actually taught from the start. She was a reference from Kevin (a recent convert), and she progressed really fast. She is really converted to the Gospel and has a great testimony. (See Pictures at end of email).
Elder Russell M. Nelson Comes to Cusco
I don´t know how we get so lucky here in Cusco, but Russell M. Nelson came and had a devotional with all of the members in the Stakes of Cusco, Inti-Raymi, and Sicuani. Just like 2 Months ago, Quentin L. Cook Came. Maybe the Apostels just like visiting Machu Picchu, and come for that. I don´t know. There were more than 2,000 members that came. That made me happy, because it shows the faith of the members here in Cusco.
He said a lot of cool things, and I learned a lot. The coolest thing that happened is that he gave his whole talk in English (with a translator), and then to end he said:
"I feel impressed to speak to you in your native tongue."
He then bore his testimony and gave an Apostolic Blessing in PERFECT Spanish. I don´t know if he actually knows Spanish, or if he spake in tongues, but in any way, it was a cool experience. The spirit was super strong.
I weighed myself today! When I left the MTC, I weighed 111 Kilograms (I won´t tell you how many pounds that is because it is embarrassing). Today, I weighed myself, and I weigh 90 Kilograms. That means that I lost 21 Kilograms or 46 Pounds. I still have a long way to go, but I´m getting better! I will attach a photo from the MTC, and from now so that you can see the difference.
Love you All!!
