Week 11 of Barranco 2, Limatambo

Hello, friends and family! This week was kinda nutty. We had stake conference, so obviously there weren´t any confirmations in the zone. One of the sectors in my district, Santa Beatriz, had a baptism on Sunday, so they´re getting ready for the confirmation on Mother´s Day. Continue reading


Week 10 of Barranco 2, Limatambo

Hello, space cadets! This week we broke our dry streak and had a convert baptism! Marylia got baptized and confirmed a member of the Church! I´ve included pics of the service below. She´s got so much potential! She´s a really great person. Now, next week, we´ve got two more baptisms on the way: Michel (a member referral) and Omar (the Relief Society President´s son). ¡EN EL AGUA NO MAS! Continue reading

Week 9 of Barranco 2, Limatambo

Hello, all! Well, first things first, here are some pics from the latest zone P-Day! Today we went to the National Stadium and the Olympic Museum in Santa Beatriz, had a delicious Oxaburger in Barranco, and played yet another thrilling game of Signs. Thankfully, my companion had the camera, so some pictures were actually taken. Here we can see zona Limatambo, the time I broke the Olympic record for the deadlift, my love for the Boys of Callao, and my district homies. Continue reading

Week 8 of Barranco 2, Limatambo


We had a pretty cool week. Michel, one of the investigators we found last week, attended church for the first time. He has four kids: Kiara (14), Leo (13), Sergio (11), and Naty (4). This week, his kids said they want to come with him to church. Michel is now progressing toward a baptismal date for May 05. Maryila also attended (for the fourth time) and has accepted a tentative baptismal date for April 28. Things are definitely looking better. Continue reading

Week 7 of Barranco 2, Limatambo

Hello! Well, we´ve kicked off a new transfer here in Limatambo. Things are looking a lot better in terms of baptismal potential. My new companion is Elder Boyer from Iquitos! He´s my first jungle companion, and he has 10 months here in the mission. And he´s great! He´s got a lot of energy and desire to work. There´s also a trio of sisters in my district now. Sadly, I don´t have any pictures, so you´ll just have to wait until next week to see all the new faces! Continue reading

Week 6 of Barranco 2, Limatambo

We´ve just witnessed ¨another chapter in the unfolding of the Restoration…¨

Man, general conference was nuts! I´ve never seen a conference so packed with announcements and changes. But, as always, it was inspiring and insightful. It´s always been a spiritually renewing experience, especially in the mission. I forgot to bring my notes with me, but here´s some of the stuff I most remember: Continue reading

Week 5 of Barranco 2, Limatambo

Hola family and friends! Well, we´re in the final week of the transfer. I´ve got three transfers to go after this one. It´s most likely that I´m staying in Barranco until the end of the mission. I can´t complain. Elder Quimis says his head isn´t quite in house mode yet, but we both figure that by Saturday or Sunday he´s a goner. Tomorrow he´s got his trunky temple visit, on Wednesday he´s got his trunky final interview with President Larson, and on Friday he´s got his trunky farewell visits. Saturday and Sunday is General Conference. He couldn´t have picked a trunkier way to go. Continue reading
