Letter 2/4/2013

Hmmmm what to write about this week. Oh yeah. YOU CAN´T JUST TELL ME ABOUT THE SUPERBOWL PARTY AND NOT TELL ME WHO WINS!!! (This is a response to Nancy's email where she only told him about the party and nothing about the game.)  Ok soooooo First off so I don´t forget again. The food in Peru... The food is interesting. I pretty much eat everything I´m given. Usually when I get spaghetti though I ask my companion to eat some of it. Don´t know why but I do NOT like it at all. And it has Davey´s green sauce on it too, just can´t do it. Don´t know why. So my taste buds. Haven´t changed all that much. If anything they are just more dull. I don´t really like any of the new foods. I LOVE fruit though. Like crazy. We get fruit every lunch and it´s DELICIOUS, especially bananas. I do actually like fried rice a lot more and scrambled eggs. I have nothing against chicken. It doesn´t taste bad at all. Just harder to eat with all the stinking bones. My favorite food (besides Paneton, my addiction from Peru basically a fruit  cake) is still rice. I get rice with 99% of my meals. This is not a lie or over exaggeration  Rice with every meal. Every breakfast I get 3 rolls with some warm juice or sometimes oatmeal in a glass. Then I get a feast for lunch. Then for dinner I get a smallish meal. Every since I got here the meals have been getting smaller and smaller. OH I REMEMBER. I do like a new food. PIZZA. So my first day in Arequipa I ate Pizza with the President. I ate like 30 slices. I hadn´t eaten in like 24 hours but it was delicious. Especially with some peppers on top. Ohhhh man it was good. To bad there isn´t a Pizza shop within like 2 hours of me...

Ok so my new companion. Well first off. My first companion was Elder Salvador. I loved him he was the best. We had so much fun together. I was sooo sad he left. He was too, but he´s doing work as a Zone Leader right now. My new companion is Elder Lozano. He is giant. Well in the eyes of a Peruvian he is. He´s like an inch taller than me, but he´s pretty big, not fat. We get along pretty well. Our companionship isn´t perfect, but hopefully we´ll warm up to each other soon. I´m definitely learning things that I didn´t learn with my other companion. He´s from Peru also. Oh funny fact about all male Peruvians that I´ve encountered. They love to use perfume. They´re obsessed with it. It´s hilarious. So these pictures are from our baptism this week. His name is Jorge Louis Terrones Sanchez. I don´t know how but he had been attending church for 10 years and never was baptized. Then he attended a baptism last week and starting reading the BoM and after that he told us He wanted to get baptized and he knew the BoM was true. He´s awesome. He drives taxis. His taxi is called the ElderMobile because after our lessons he always drives us around town to wherever we need to go.

I´m super glad everyone is doing good. Can´t believe Mikey is almost 15 and Sam is almost 13. I´m extra happy about Davey also. I know that my prayers were answered. I´ve been praying for Davey so that he could be more prepared for his mission, and the fact that he went on splits this last week and liked it is a testament to this. Because I know for a fact that the Davey I knew NEVER would go on splits. So I´m very happy that Davey is starting to become more prepared for his mission.

So yeah what else. Um well tell me the stinking score of the Super Bowl.

Love Elder Russon
