Dear Family,

This week was fun because I was able to see a lot of traditions of Perú. For you, this week was Halloween. Here in Perú it was the Day of the Dead and The Day of the Living. Everyone went to the cemetery and cleaned the graves of their dead. It is almost like Memorial day in the States. The weirdest thing that I saw was that there were Priests (I won´t tell you what religion they were from, but I´m sure you can guess) that offered to recite prayers over a grave, but they Charged!! They charged money to say a prayer!!! It made me think of 1 Nephi 22:23

For the time speedily shall come that all churches which are built up to get gain, and all those who are built up to get power over the flesh, and those who are built up to become popular in the eyes of the world, and those who seek the lusts of the flesh and the things of the world, and to do all manner of iniquity; yea, in fine, all those who belong to the kingdom of the devil are they who need fear, and tremble, and quake; they are those who must be brought low in the dust; they are those who must be consumed as stubble; and this is according to the words of the prophet.

Sorry, I know that that scripture is a little strong, but That is what I thought of. :)

Kevin, a Young man in our ward gave us the reference of his Girlfriend, and she is progressing fast! We challenged her to get baptized the 16 of November, and she Accepted! References are awesome! Give them to the local Elders!

I love you All So Much!!
