Hola Familia Mia!!!

      Lo siento que no tengo fotos hoy dia, voy a tomar algunas hoy para la proxima semana!!! (Translation – Sorry I don’t pictures today, I am going to take some today for next week)  Muchisimas Gracias for the Package!!!!!!!!  It was great to get it!  Thanks for all the stuff, I have to confess, I promised my Pensionista and her family chocolate in my last package, but I might have eaten it all with Elder Mitchell... oops haha so I snagged the bag you sent for the Elders in the office and gave it to the pensionista... HAHA!!!  Soy malo... malo hasta los huesos!  (I am bad…bad to the bone)  So sorry about that.  I was thinking a little about the questions about the birthday package.  And I was thinking if you could send some stuff for my pensionista and her husband and her little boy Hyrumcito!!!  I think it would be awesome to send them some BYU T-shirts and a little one for Hyrum!  Is he not the cutest little guy in the world! (see last weeks pics)   John (the pensionistas Hubby) is a salesman for Nissan here in Huancayo so we also have competitions that we will baptize more people then he sells cars, and the loser at the end of the month has to buy Pizza Hut for the others!  Haha good stuff!  So a little input on the trip plans, it looks like SUCH a blast to me!   I would like to stay here in Huancayo a little bit more time,  John told us he could take us to one of the Soccer games here in Huancayo, (the team is Esport Huancayo... haha)  But I think that would be cool, I doubt that Mom or Liney would go, but Dad you and I could hit it up!  And I would like to spend some time with John and Patty and Hyrumcito, and my converts here, we could play a pick up game of soccer in the church or something!  And I don’t think I will end my mission here, so according to my last area, I imagine I will want to visit there too...  So if I don’t end in the jungle, you know I am going to want to hit that up and the whole Inca trail looks like an absolute blast!  Also we can go out to lunch with President Ardila and his fam when we are in Lima.   Also there is a chance that I can talk to Luis and Ines, the couple that are fire fighters in Paucarbamaba, I heard from them a little while ago and they have plans to get sealed.  So that would be an absolute dream if they get sealed in December... I am going to write them a letter to see about their plans!
       So I don’t really remember what other questions you asked last week, what happens is I read the letters that same day or Tuesday and then with all that goes on in the week, I completely forget about you questions... sorry, yes I know dad, it’s not very hard to write it down in my little planner!  I will do better!  So, I explained what happened with our investigators and all that in the voice recordings! QUE RABIA!  but oh well we will keep on keepin on, we could have up to 6 baptisms this week, the only problem is that the investigators still aren`t very excited, so we are going to help them out, if you could include Robinson, Dionicio, Flabia, Lucero, Nicholas, and Jesus in your prayers, that they can overcome their problems and have the courage to accept their baptismal dates!

       Thanks family for all that you do, thanks for the emails and packages, you’ll never know how much it means to a missionary in the field to know that every day he has his family praying for them and to go to the internet cafe and know that there will be letters, I am so blessed to be able to serve here in Peru Lima East and have SUCH a great family! LOVE YA! 

Elder McGhie!
