Peru pretty good, fresh fruit, creamy warm milk, crazy drivers, small temple!

Umm trying to figure out how too send pictures, but most importantly i do get a mothers day call, well technically you have to call me at 51-1-3494282 between 8 and 9 local time on Saturday, i get exactly five minutes no more, so basically this call is just for me to talk to mom and wish her happy mothers day. Other than that Peru is way awesome i am learning Spanish way fast my companion elder tapuy is way awesome he is from Ecuador he is 24 and has only been a member of the church for 2 years! his testimony is way awesome and I can actually understand him, i also got a compliment from elder bravo (native) which i think is like the highest compliment that any greengo can receive he said ''elder king your Spanish is very good you speak just like a native, if i closed my eyes i wouldn't know you were American!'' so I'm stoked, i know the lord is with me and that he continually blesses me in my life! um oh the food here is amazing umm there is only fresh squeezed everything, like watermelon and cantaloupe and pear and coconut and papaya and mango and every other kind of fruit the milk here is way creamy like warm whole milk with a little bit of cream i think they have a cow somewhere and they are milking it every morning! oh but it isn´t all good they had this one kind of pudding the other night, you look at it and it just looks like normal chocolate pudding right! wrong it tasted like someone had been smoking while they were making it and had used the bowl as an ash tray! i took like one bite and almost spewed! it was awful! good thing my companion seemed to like it, umm there are six people in my room this time me my companion two americanos and two natives umm the teachers here are way awesome they are teaching us way way fast and we get to go out on Saturday and do our real life teaching experience! ahhh! I'm way stoked! ummm yeah it is way humid especially today, you know those restaurants that have the misters out side, well that is what it was like today it didn´t rain it was just like being in a cloud of mist which was weird, yes we did get to go to the temple, and the temple here is wayyy small there are only twenty five people per session and i think there is maybe two ordinance rooms and not even sure of that, there are 115 missionaries here and 32 are American so there is not very much diversity and every single one of us ha a latino companion! this is way awesome i love the people here! OHH the drivers here are INSANE!! they say they have driving lanes but i have yet to see anyone paying any attention to any of them they just stop and go whenever they want, they will run you over if you don´t get out of the way fast enough and no one stops at stops signs ever they really only slow down for the random speed bump and when a bus slams its brakes in front of them! ummm president whetten and his wife are the presidents here and they are way cool they take care of every single missionary like their own children and i think they all love them more because of it! everything is great here just keep praying for me i still need all the blessings i can get! hope to talk to you on Saturday love you so very very much! adios! cho!
