Ward Conference - Letter from 3/21

So my mini missionary companion Elder Nuñez isn't my companion anymore. He got his mission call and we opened it up on Tuesday night in his church, and he got his call to Lima central, and has to report to the MTC march 29th!!!! 3 weeks before this transfer ends, and he asked to go home and pack his stuff because he pretty much has 1 week to get everything ready for his mission,  We dropped him off with his stake president Friday and I've been with the Elders from my District since then.  It's kind of a complicated situation juggling the 2 wards and all of my investigators and less actives,.  The stakes are looking for someone to be my companion but no luck so far, they said by next week they might find someone.  But its pretty fun, I've got my own bathroom now and have lots of extra space now!!!  But I hope I get a companion soon, 

Elmer is doing well I did divisions to go down to central and teach him, but I've got some good news about the ward.  Yesterday was our Ward Conference, the Bishop was pushing really hard for the members to invite people. The Elders dropped me off there early and I was with Returned Missionaries.  The chapel was filling up good; there was lots of  investigators and less active members i had never seen before, it looked so full. I got up to count with the clerk, we counted 210 people!!!!!  And there were 6 Young Men passing the sacrament, with 2 Priests blessing.  I just felt so happy.  There were so many priesthood holders in the classes. I'm so pumped to work here.  The Young Men left to visit in the afternoon and by their own initiative without leaders!!!!!!!!!!!!  The quorum presidents are starting to get their act together, because they told them they have keys.    Members accompanied me the whole afternoon till dinner, I worked the whole day there, I can't explain it I'm just so happy to be here in Puno, even though its cold, and I'm gonna be here till winter!!!!!!!  I'm ready to work and get that number up to 300, that's the ward goal,

The picture is my District the kid (Grey Sweater) was my companion, the Elder in blue is Elder Melo from Columbia,  and the  purplish color is elder Huallparuca from Huancayo Peru

                                        That's my zone in the stake center, I'm on the right side, 

 We had a stake wide Primary activity, and the District Leaders all had to teach classes for the kids,  I team taught with Elder Augat it was fun hanging out with the kids, it was a future missionary activity, I had to teach them 'Que enseño como misionero' (I teach as a missionary) so I taught them the Doctrine of Christ.  Then after these 4 training classes, we got divided up with kids and sent to proselyte!!!!!

I worked with converts this week and in one afternoon we cleared 8 names for the temple.  Thanks for the pictures,


Elder Wilde
