So ya cambios were last week and im staying here in Primavera Pucallpa but i have a new companion.  His names Elder Quintana and hes from Bolivia La Paz.  Hes a really good Elder.  A lot is changing from the way i worked with Elder Roque but its all for the better.  He really wants to learn english so our language studies are actually really effective.  The language is coming along.  Its hard i feel like im in a phase where people think i know the languange because i can speak well enough and think im just dumb when i cant explain things exactly right. haha but ya teaching with Elder Quintana is going very well.  Hes really good at simplifying the gospel so everyone can understand.  Im learning a lot from him.
Ever since i was throwing up all last week ive lost my appetite which stinks!  i seriously loved the food so much when i first got here and was eating so much but now i can hardly eat.  ughhh hopefully my appetite will come back.  Last night a cita (appointment) with one of our investigators who is progressing very well fell through and we were super bumbed.  We had a plan B with this 75 year old member named hermano vento.  We told him the day before we might pass by and maybe he could introduce us to some of his neighbors.  We thought for sure he would have forgot about this but much to our surprise Vento was waiting for us.  Shirt Tie Boots Flashlight and ready to go.  And it was raining.  He took us to this house on stilts that was litteraly in a lake.  My boots go up to my knees and still water got on.  Haha and right along side me was 4 foot 6 Hermano Vento trucking through the sludge.  He introduced us to a very humble family and they were very receptive of everythimg.  After on the way home Vento slipped in the mud and roled.  I was so scared but much to my suprise again he was just laughing loving his time out with the missionaries.  Im so greatful for the members of the church who understand its through them we can hasten the work of the Lord.  I encourage all of you to look for ways to help the Elders in your ward and go out and visit with them. Lessons where members bear testimony are the lessons that change investigators lives.  We have been promised by elder Evans who heads the department of missionary work in the church that the friends family and neighbors of Member, recent converts, less actives, and investigators are the people prepared to hear the gospel.  Im so greatful for missionary work.  I know its the Lords work on Earth.  Find ways to serve and share the gospel. Its the best way you can spend your time. Much Love
Elder Smith
