LETTER FROM JORDAN - WEEK 46 (4/20/15)
Another great week here in the Perú Trujillo Mission!
Well this has been a pretty hard week for us, with having to leave a few investigators because they won't use their agency to progress and having some hard times in our daily planning figuring out which people we should look for and visit.
But this week had plenty of great moments.
On Saturday morning we were able to take some more people to visit the temple. We took a less-active couple to go feel the special Spirit that this building has and shared a lesson about the work of salvation that we are able to do inside.
I still haven't fully realized how blessed we are to have a temple dedicated in Trujillo and all of the ordenances of salvation that will be produced from the worthy members here.
Well, we only have 18 days until the Open House of the temple, from May 8th to May 30th. All of the sister missionaries have the opportunity to be the guides for the tours, and we can take our investigators and less-actives to go through the tour of the temple.
On Thursday we were able to have another missionary activity: a sports night. We all did some sports on the field right next to the church building, because all of the churches in the US have indoor basketball courts, all of the churches here have a soccer field outside. We started out all playing soccer, but then we had an activity where everyone could participate. We played water balloon volleyball with towels!

It was a really great activity and everyone had fun.
So the saxophone is great! I didn't get to play it too much for the show because they had already planned all of the numbers by the time that I got it, but I did get to play it with the choir.
We watched conference in the stake center, also known as our ward's building and they broadcasted it in Spanish, but they had a special room for the missionaries where they had it in English. It is waaay better in English, but when they had the Spanish speakers, we put it on Spanish.
That's all I got for this week, and the work presses forward here in Primavera.
