A TALE OF TWO CITIES, NO, JUST ONE CITY...PUCALLPA
So this week we went to Pucallpa. I got to go to my old house in Pucallpa. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Some really good memories of that house and that area. I went out to work with Elder Alvarez during the week because his companion was really sick and had to come to Iquitos to get to a better clinic. anyways it was really cool to get to know Elder Alvarez. Hes very young. he only got to the mission about 3 months ago. He told me about his experience trying to get out on his mission. The week before his reporting date his dad got super sick and no one could take care of him. Elder Alvarez was going to stay home but then at the last minute one of his aunts said that she would take care of him until he got better. He was so grateful for his Aunt. This last week Elder Alvarez got the news that his dad had finally recovered. he had tuburculosis i think. Elder Alvarez was super stoked. It helped me realize that all the missionaries have stories. That theres always something behind whats going on with the missionaries. Its hard but the Lord is teaching me and giving the opportunity to see the missionaries as He does. I really love the opportunity that the Lord has given me here in my mission. Hopefully ill be able to take full advantage of it and grow and learn what He wants me to learn. Hope all is well back home.
