I have very little time to write. On Tuesday we knew our new companions and I was talking to another elder about our new companions and I told him that I was happy with anywhere except Peru because I had already had 4 peruvian companions. Not anything against peruvians, but I´ve been with them much. I said especially not from Arequipa because they are famously prideful and serious.
When I finally asked my companion from where he is from, he´s from the "Independent Republic" of Arequipa, o sea Arequipa, Perú. the cambios are revelation, people. For many reasons, just that that´s another evidence. He´s named Élder Valenzuela and comes from a pueblito. It must be real pueblito because i had to teach him how to use a microwave with other very basic things. But, he´s learning well and last night put two baptismal dates. I´ll write more next week.
