LETTER FROM JORDAN - WEEK 31 (1/5/15)
Well, it's now been 7 months that I've been in Perú and things are going great!
There's not too much to report on, but here we go.
Well as you know, New Year's was this week and it was pretty cool. So Peruvians have a pretty cool tradition that they do on New Year's where they make like a doll/scarecrow thing. They stuff clothes with a whole bunch of straw and also hide small fireworks in it and then at midnight, they burn it all. Sadly, I don't have any pictures this time, but take my word that it's pretty cool.
Well there's not much else that went on this week event wise, but as a companionship, we are working super hard to strengthen our primary program. About a month ago, we wouldn't have any kids going to church due to the lack of supplies and other kids. So with the baptism that we just had, we've decided to go all out on our primary. Now, we have about 6 kids going every week, with a lot of activities for them.
Also, we had 7 people at church yesterday that aren't members, which was about 1/5th of who went in total yesterday, so I think it was a pretty successful week for our Branch.
Other than that, just an update on my finger:
Welp, that's all I got for this week, so until the next!
