So this week Elder Aldana and I went to the market one day and set up a table with copies of the Book of Mormon, pamphlets, Book of Mormon action heroes, a portable DVD player showing "The Testaments," and a big white board that said, ''Christ came to the Americas?'' We got several interested people, gave out a few books, and took contact information. It was fairly successful....and then the children came....
The first question one might ask is, ''What are children doing in the tarp covered vegetable market on a Wednesday morning?'' Doesn't matter. A bagillion kids got interested and began stealing pamphlets and watching the video. They wanted one of each of the 5 pamphlets, and another set for each of their cousins. That wasn't going to happen, so Elder Aldana and I began hiding the pamphlets but it turned into one of us on box duty and the other one talking to people.
Later this week we got to do a family history project. It wasn't in our area, it was by the church. We started out by taking a table to the street with hundreds of unclaimed Ensigns from the past 5 years. We street contacted and tried to bring them to our family history display and, if they behaved, gave them an Ensign. We did the activity that night and had the participation of a few interested people from the street. I think more than anything it helped build ward unity (they were chasing down people with us!)

We shaved sheep with paper scissors.
V*** (whose parents live in Lima but are members) was baptized in 2 feet of water. It took 7 tries at least.
We went to Llanganunco this morning (Google it!)
I love everyone. Especially my little brother, Josh, who is going to serve in Singapore! Have a great week!
