WEEK 1: Lima, Peru Mission Training Center


I can´t believe I've only been out here for a week.   It seems like

I have been here for so much longer, but in a really good way, and I now
think I've gotten into a routine and I already love it here so much.
I have already grown to have such a love for Peru and I love looking out at
the mountains, even though most days it is very foggy. Yesterday we went
to Interpol to get our visas and it was really nice to get out and see
more of the city. Something interesting about Peru is that they have stray animals
everywhere and you are not supposed to pet them because they
carry diseases. There were a couple of stray cats at Interpol
while we were waiting in line and there were all these kittens and I
just wanted to pick them up and pet them and play with them but I
couldn't.   I may have to pet one though...I should be ok though haha. 

The food here is very good.  I have chicken rice and potatoes I am really enjoying learning spanish and on the
second day we started teaching an "investigator" (our teacher) in the
casitas IN SPANISH.  It has actually been really great, it is just
frustrating sometimes not being able to find the words. I've noticed
though that  when I bear just a simple testimony in the lesson, the
spirit is there every time. I love the gospel and I am learning so much
from being here on how I need to improve.  Sister Dallimore is a great
companion. She is really sarcastic and blunt and she makes me laugh
really hard. She is so honest with me when something I do bothers
her and I really appreciate it. I feel like we communicate well and we
can work hard but also laugh a lot. Last night during district meeting
we could barely keep it together because we just were laughing so
much! Sometimes we need to be better focused. The ccm has such a
wonderful spirit about it and i feel so excited to serve for the next
18 months! 

I love you all!!  Hermana Charlotte Jensen
