Our heat continues, but summer is supposed to be ending gradually. By the end of April, our high temperatures will only be around 90°F instead of 98°. The heat does make it hard to work; no one wants to be out in the hot afternoon sun. But I am used to it now. Our city, Piura, has three stakes of the Church and five mission zones. That's how I have been in the city all my mission so far. Our proselyting areas are small but have high populations. When the new Chiclayo mission was created last year, they took most of our jungle areas away. It was kind of sad, since we don't get to go to those areas, but there are still five good-sized cities in our mission. Some have missionaries and some don't. My ward here has about 150 active members and we have six missionaries. Things are going well with Elder Barreno!
