We had some pretty stinking cool lessons this week.   One lesson in particular this week was with a young man named Jerry.  The week before we taught him about the Law of Chastity.  When we got to his room the following week he said he needed to tell us something.  While he was working the other week he said one of the older kids at his work tried to show him pornography on his phone.  Jerry said he pushed his phone away from him and told him pornography is not what God wants for him.  The kid asked why and Jerry didnt know exactly know what to say but said that he knew it was something bad in the sight of God.  And that he had two friends, an awkward gringo and a little argentinian, who would explain everything to him.  And then he asked us if he could bring his coworker to his house the next time we come so we could talk to him as well. It was so cool to see this young man acting according to what he had learned.  Jerry is 16 years old and lives alone in a little rented room that i can touch all four walls standing in the center.  His testimony is growing in our savior Jesus Christ.  He doesnt know why but he says when he reads the book of mormon and does the things we ask him to do his day goes better and he feels good about it.  Hes very excited to tell his brother and mom about the church when they return to iquitos in september.  Live what you know! the Lord will bless you every day to be able to share your faith.  Even if you dont know exactly what to say the people will be interested.  Its what they need and the Lord will let them know that.  My testimony grew this week because of the people i serve.  I love this place.  I love our faith
Elder Smith
