I'm here; it's hot and humid and Spanish! Yikes!

That's the word from Kristian, who is now in the Lima CCM (or MTC in English) learning Spanish.   He has been out into Lima a little and has visited the Lima LDS temple.    He says the Spanish is coming along and he is adjusting to his new surroundings.

First care package in Peru

Hi! It's Wednesday afternoon and we just got back from the temple (in Spanish) and shopping. I got some Spanish books for the mission, a llama bag and llama tie, and some snacks to go with all the candy i got! The package made through fine, so thanks for doing that so well! I got a picture of Greg falling to the ground for joy when the package was opened. The zone leader brought it to my room along with about 10 other elders who were reluctant to let go; it was very funny.

Kristian is off to Peru!

Kristian will leave Provo on Wednesday, February 16, and fly through Atlanta to Lima, Peru.  He will continue studying Spanish there for another six weeks before transferring to his mission in Piura.
