Elder Crump

So family to start off, today is not my P day...I don't know when it will be, because all this week we are going to be training the Pres and His wife!  Next week, we are going to have P day on Monday, because we are going to go to that cool outdoor zoo.  After that, I think our
P days are going to be on Thursdays again.  But for this week and the next, it will be normal.  
So great news!! I finally received my card!  And it works! Thanks mom and dad!
So some important news the address to send packages is different here it is:
Nicolas Collins Crump
Misión Perú Iquitos
Jr. Napo # 478
Iquitos, Maynas
Loreto, Perú
So if you want to send anything you need to put this new address.

So wow, we are officially in the new misison.  IQUITOS!  It's so great, but their is so much work ahead of us.  So on Saturday, the new president arrived, and seriously they are so nice.  He is shorter than me, and I just want to pick him up and give him a big hug!  haha Sister Gómez is already like another mother.  She is so sweet, and even in her first 5 minutes she was worrying about the missionaries.  They are going to do great!  They are excited, and you can tell how they have such a love for all those around them.  So we took them to their house, and  Hermana Gómez about died when she saw her new kitchen.  She is so excited to start cooking! Haha, we are excited for that too!  So then we let them get all settled in and get a little rest, because they had been flying all day.  So then about 4 hours later we went back to pick them up and take them to the Welcoming Program the members of Iquitos had done for them.  The had this big celebration, with all these dances and special numbers.  They talked about the history of Iquitos, and how wonderful it is now to have an official mission here in the Jungle.  The problem was Presidente started to feel sick and had to leave fast to go to the bathroom.  On the way, he threw up twice.  So me and one of the assistants went with him, and he was just throwing up.  The Peruvian food didn't do him good.  We asked him if he wanted to leave, but he insisted on staying.  He had to leave 2 more times that night to go to the bathroom, but he made it through the performances with a smile.  He is a strong little guy. haha  

So things have been going well in our area.  We had a lesson with Wilder and Maria, and she said that she has prayed and she now knows that Joseph Smith was prophet.  She had said it was always so hard for her to accept him, because of all the rumors and stuff that you can read on the internet about him.  She said that after watching the Joseph Smith movie, and praying she knows he was a prophet, and that this is the ONLY true church on the earth with the Priesthood.  Those were here own words! It was awesome!  So now we just got to get them ready for their wedding.  They are having some doubts about that, and I think it has to do with money issues, but hopefully our ward can help out.  But really, it was such an amazing experience to see her have this change of heart.  Hopefully all will go well, and when she gets back from her visist with her family we can get started on the wedding!

Our other investigators are doing great! Jorge and Eveline are just trying to get everything done with the divorce, but its kind of just a waiting game with them.  Cristian had a big fight with his mom, and now doesn't want to do anything with the church.  We were shocked.  He says he just needs some time to cool off.  But when we went to talk to him, he said he really doesn't want to be apart of the same church as his mom, dispite the fact he knows all that we taught him is true.  It's been frustrating with him, but hopefully he´ll come around.  Right now we really are focusing on the two families that we have.  We are still looking for more, but if all goes well, I know Wilder and Maria will get married and Baptized this month!  Please pray for them!
That is so crazy Lexi will be heading out soon!  Like you said, she will make a great missionary. The Philippines will just love her!

Well family, I hope all is well!  Next week, hopefully I'll have some better pictures to send, this past week we havent had too much time!  

All my Love,
