La primera semana‏

Well this week has been a roller coaster of emotions to say the least. We arrived in Cusco and the first day was nice cause we took a little tour of the city then after we went to the mission home and just kinda relaxed. I talked to elder bengtzen a ton and that was super nice because i was super nervous and he really calmed me down!

Well my first sector is Puno Central Chanu Chanu. It's freezing cold here. I don't actually no the weather but i am like always cold. That could be because i have been sick all week. After arriving in puno i got sick. I have had a fever headache and just haven't felt good. Its been rough but thank goodness for ibuprofen! Its really hard for me to breathe. and Puno has a lot of hills and so walking up these hills not being able to breathe kinda sucks! but oh well hopefully i will get used to it! my companion is elder samaniego and he is so awesome! He is Latino from Paraguay but speaks pretty good English! Which he has learned all on his mission! He is super cool and we get a long great!

We try to contact families in the street that's our goal. we contacted a lot this week and set up appointments and all of them fell through this week so that is awful. But in a lesson i had with a less active member, as i go to explain a scripture i get a bloody nose... it was awful!! I've been getting more now here, i think it's cause it's really dry. 

Also another funny thing that happened is we were walking to an appointment but were super lost cause elder samaniego or i know nothing about this area,but we asked this guy a question and he recognized us being missionaries and started telling us he was catholic. Well this guy was straight wasted, he was holding a bag with 6 or7 beer bottles in it. so elder samaniego gave him a picture of Jesus and he puts in his bag with all the beer bottles.. we just kinda chuckled and tried to stop him but ya we couldn't.
The last few things is the binding on my English scriptures broke so that sucks so bad. i don't know what to do..... also our bathroom is about the size of our downstairs shower.... except in this bathroom it has shower toilet and sink not just shower... Elder bentson, one of our zone leaders, who lives with us is from riverton and knows brittny and camee, and also kendra. or so he says!

Well I love you all so much! Keep praying for me and i will do the same! Thanks for everything! love you and miss you
