First off happy b day to trav dal and bryan!!! i hope you all had amazing birthdays!!(: i dont think you could have asked for a better b day weekend than conference!! Well im starting to get letters now here and there but it takes about a month or month and a half to het here!! also theyre starting to open the packages here and they said they have to be half food and half other things if you send food! im not sure why but i guess they dont like when people send lots of food here. :( My life is crazy here, im still companionless and am with a temporal, shes great her name is precilla and is 19 years old. Shes studying right now and when she finishes wants to go on a mission! She stays with me whenever she can and helps so much!! love her. The other sister her in moquegua is companionless too and her comp comes back the 16th but they dont know when my companion will come back. We have transfers the 20th and im guessing if she doesnt come back before then ill be staying here another 6 weeks!! haha but like i always say.. whatever the lord needs me to do im here to do it(:  monday and tuesday was awesome. i got to sit in on a meeting with all the leaders of the mission and i learned a ton about how important the work is in each and every area of the mission!! It was funny because everyone i talked to said that moquegua is where the rebels get sent and that everyone hates it there.  haha proababy a good thing i started here so i dont know the difference! Between being in arequipa, meetings and conference i didnt get as much done in my area as i would have liked but conference was amazing and im ready to work extra hard this week!! Also you can add ALPACA to the list of gross things ive eaten here... not my favorite. haha but at least i didnt kill it(: We got to watch one of the sessions in english but that was it, the cable wasnt working so the stake pres said it would be better if we just watched it in spanish! i think my favorite part of all of conference was "doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith!" i love that! Also how they talked a lot about member missionary work!! keep up the good work at home!! Us missionaries need the help of the members!! also the part " we are never too young to learn or too old to change!"

i love this work and i love being here, if anyone out there is thinking about serving a mission... DO IT. Its the best thing ive ever done and i cant wait to keep working until the last day i have here.. and then to do missionary work for the rest of my life!! i know the church is true and i know the savior is always there to give us a helping hand when we need it!!

i love you all!!!!! Thank you for all your love and support!! (:
