LETTER FROM JORDAN - WEEK 85 (1/18/16)
Well that was a very interesting week here in San Pedro starting off this new transfer.
So my new companion is Elder Chacón and he is from Chile, Peru's biggest rival. He is from the southern part of Chile in a town called Valdivia where it's pretty cold. He is 18 years old, a convert of 3 years, and he has about 8 months in the mission. He has only been in one area so far which was in Trujillo in a part called Porvenir which is the super dangerous part of Trujillo. He mentioned that everything is so nice and calm here in San Pedro compared to Trujillo. Next week I will attach a photo, because I was finally able to buy a new camara today.
It was kind of a difficult week after only being here 6 weeks and now having to direct the area, but we have found some new people to teach and we helped some others go to church for the first time in a while, which I guess was a successful week.
Another weird thing about the transfers was that more than half of the missionaries in the zone changed to different areas, including one of the zone leaders and the two other district leaders. And the weirdest part was that my hijo, Elder Smith, came up to the zone too, so I get to see him more than once a week.
Well, that's about it until the next week! (here is a picture that Sister Marler took of me last week)
