Elder Livi Update
Thank you for your wonderful love and support. I feel so blessed to be serving here, and the blessings only increase as I hear from all of y’all doing so many wonderful things, especially all my friends serving missions and serving the Lord. ¡Sigan!
This week was incredible, mostly because we acheived 100% of lessons we attempted, meaning that every house that we went to, we got to teach. That is UNHEARD of. I have never had that. Ever. What a blessing. I felt extremely blessed by the Lord. It was one of the best weeks of my mission, because of that, and because of all the blessings I felt from the Lord. I am privileged to be here.
I also had so many people serve me, especially my companion, Elder L., and a wonderful member, Hermano M. I feel so grateful for their wonderful service, and I feel so loved.
New Year’s Eve is celebrated here by fireworks at midnight. And when I say fireworks, I mean every single house in the city is lighting them off. Pretty sure we were the only people who didn’t in all of Huanuco! Probably saw 1000 fireworks in 5 minutes. It was crazy! But super cool.
This week was one of the hardest, and one of the most rewarding. We worked hard, and felt so blessed. I also felt burdened, but no matter what trials we face, the Lord is with us. [He sprained his ankle playing basketball.] It’s hard, but always worth it. I felt so loved and served and blessed this week, it was a tumult of emotions. The Lord blesses us in the midst of trials, and in this week I have experience that so much this week.
This week we also ate some crazy food!! We ate Pecari (look it up) and Suri (search Suri Gusano in Google). [Suri is an edible grub, i.e. WORM.] It was crazy!! Not that bad though. Then we had to cook up some pancakes to eat some real food.
I love y’all!
In his recording, Elder Livi said that everyone does fireworks, and the start at midnight, so if you want to sleep, it’s not possible. “You might not have a door, but you do fireworks. It’s si o si.”
(He said “Si o si” is an expression which means “yes or yes.” His voice recordings are the BEST. We love his sense of humor and all the details we get to hear in them!)
