Peru Chiclayo Mission
Motupe, Peru - First Area
First Area! Assigned to Motupe, Peru which is 44 miles or one and a half hours travel time northwest of Chiclayo. Companions with Elder Brian Coons from Los Angeles, California.
"Flying into Chiclayo was cool. It was the most green I have seen here for seven weeks. It’s a little bit more rural here. I’m in Motupe which is about one and half hours out of Chiclayo. I love my area but I don’t know Spanish. The first week out of the CCM was the hardest for me so I’m sure next week will be much better! I’m trying to remember things to tell you but it’s hard!
I was able to watch General Conference at the CCM! It was great!!! Elder Waddell gave the closing prayer of the Saturday morning session. He is the 70 who spoke to us in the CCM. He is really great. President Uchtdorf gave some great talks. The Sunday morning session was a good one!!"
