Elder C


So this week we had a baptism!

We ve been working with a family for almost 3 months, and four of them were baptized on Saturday! The service was great and all four were confirmed on Sunday.  It was truly a blessing to see them finally take this step. They were pretty excited and it was great to be able to help them get to this point.  We are stoked to keep teaching them as members of the church!

So this week we mainly ran around getting the baptism ready.  I also had the chance to do the baptismal interviews of two yound kids a boy named R and a 10 year old girl named I.  It was one of my favorite memories, seeing how seriously and reverently these two kids took baptism.  They had very simple testimonies and were very humble.

Also, as a zone we did a grand intercambio, and Elder Quintero from Colombia worked with me in my sector.  He is a great missionary, and he only has thee weeks in the mission. We had a good time working together.

Anyway, it was a great week and we are looking forward to the next week.  Thanks for your emails and letters and have a great week!

New Cambio, New Companion


So this week has gone really well.  My new companion, Elder P is really awesome, and we're doing well as a companionship.  He is from Salt Lake City and is a big skier, and a great missionary.
We are getting ready this week for the baptism of a family we are teaching! They announced it at ward conference yesterday and they are really excited.  The ward has really helped them feel comfortable and loved in the ward and we are going to be working closely with them this week.
Heavenly Father loves us a lot.  He knows us personally, and cares enough to know when to intervene and when to let us figure things out on our own.  As we have been working with this family, He has answered our prayers for them.
We are looking forward to this next week and I'm excited for the new cambio.

Con amor,

So we have cambios again!  I'm staying here in this sector and I'm getting a new companion named Elder P! Hes from Utah and I don't know him, so I'll meet him tomorrow. Its lame that I only had one cambio with Elder C, but hopefully I'll see him before this mission ends. 

Also, this week was good. We are working with a family that wants to get baptized.  We are planning on having their baptism at the end of the month, so we are looking forward to that. 

Not much else happened this week.  We are planning on starting this week off at full speed and hopefully we will see more baptisms this cambio. 

Thanks for all your prayers and support!

Love, Elder Peck



So this week was a memorable one.  Full of ups and downs, but more ups than downs.

Starting with the downs (to get them out of the way):  This week I found out the Elder Boyd K Packer passed away, which was really sad news for us.  Also, I got really sick at the beginning of the week.

Now the highlights: I got better, so I'm not sick anymore!

Chile won the Copa America! We had permission to watch the game a with recent convert. They had invited a bunch of people, so we watched it with a big group of people and it was super fun.  We won by penalty kicks, and after the last penalty kick, the whole room exploded with people shouting and blowing horns.  We ran outside and the whole city was in the street, driving down the main streets honking their horns with Chile flags hanging out the window.

Also, my sister Taylor got married!  I was super excited for her this week and today I got to see the pictures.

Also, Fourth of July! We bought a completo, which is basically a hot dog to celebrate haha.

And, the most important: V got baptized! The service was Saturday morning and was fantastic.  She was confirmed on Sunday.

Anyway, that's about it, it was a great week. Thanks for everything!
