Good morning everyone!
How's everyone this fine day? This week for Hermana Alvarez and I was both great and not so great. I've finally eaten Guinea Pig, my companion and I were yet again as dorky as ever, and sadly poor Hermana Alvarez was having some bad health problems... poor girl!
First off, yes it's true. After 7 months of serving here in
I have finally eaten Guinea Pig or Cuy in Spanish, and surprisingly, it was
really really good! Yes it is a little weird trying to eat around the little
paws and the whole fact that there isn't a whole lot of meat. But ,now I'm a
Peruvian because I've eaten Cuy! And I really like it... it's delicious! Peru

Well, in my ward, Hermana Alvarez and I have earned new names. Hermana Loca and Hermana Crazy. Mainly because we are both completely NUTS! A family in our ward this week bought us some soccer jerseys from
and my companion was so happy! We took a million and one pictures with them, and
every day is just a party. I love this companion of mine. Colombia

Lastly, please oh please keep my companion in your prayers. This past week was very tough on her, and it even included a few trips to the hospital. She's doing a little better. But not quite 100% quite yet... poor girl. I can't give a lot of details, but this week she wasn't able to leave the house a lot and she couldn't really move a lot. Her body really took a hit but thanks to many prayers and love, she is slowly getting better.

Good Times with Hermana Alvarez
Well, I love and miss you all. Sorry not really much to report this week. I spent a lot of time this week in the hospital with my companion so, there isn't really any big news to tell. I am grateful for this time that I'm here in
I know this church is true and I love it! Peru
Have a wonderful week!
Con mucho amor,
