Made it to Peru!

OK this key board is wacky! but awesome! we have safely arrived in Peru which is awesome i have a native compañero who's name is Elder Tapuy (tah poo ie) he is way awesome and speaks like no English which is not helpful but necessary for me, he also is on his first day here so needless to say we have gotten lost a few times already this morning, also since he is a native speaker, we hardly ever see each other because we go to different classes and i am convinced that no matter where you are you first day in an mtc it is very long and no one knows what to do with you or where to send you!
I got a haircut again today, my last hair cut was on Monday, but that was like the first thing they made us do this morning, so my hair is now really short OK i love you all and here is all of the critical information
mail goes out on Mondays, my p-day is Wednesday

For the next three weeks this is my address i think, give this to everyone, me and Samatha have been corresponding through letters so this would be helpful to let her know, it takes about a week to go one way and i write on Wednesday.
Street address
Apratado Postal Elder Tyler Jesse King Lima Peru South

umm oh yeah they say that it is about the same amount of time either way so it doesn't really matter. 
Ahh immigration papers ugh,  well if you can make any sense of anything above i wish you the best of luck because i can't.  I love you guys and hope to hear from you maybe the Oakes will be able to help a little so.....
anyways the facilities here are waaaaaaaaaaaay nicer than the Provo ones and the food is infinitely better, um we are not allowed to take pictures like anywhere on the ccm but i will try and find a place where it is allowed, forgot to bring my camera this time but it looks like this computer will let me send stuff so plan on it next Wednesday! hope you all got my last letters from Utah and i hope to get an email telling me the jist of whats going on. I know these next couple of weeks will be a struggle with español to the max, but i know the lord is with me and i am taking the promise of 1 nephi 3:7 to heart.  Love you guys sooo very very much

oh btw it is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAy humid but in a good way, i don't even know if its possible, but no doors or windows are ever closed and they always have the ac cranked which is awesome

I see what everyone was talking about though, the giant wall around us is intimidating, but the ccm is very small and extremely beautiful which is amazing!


Thanks for the goodies!

Heck yes i have received a lot of goodies and they all came on the same day! i felt soo much love, extend my thanks to the Northridge ward they also gave me a lot, umm some people especially though are the Lesuers, but that's the only name i can think of off the top of my head... don't think i can take much of it to Peru but my district will be eating through it relatively quickly, i would have never finished it, elder Brownlow our district leader said that i have lost weight since being here here says my face looks narrower oh well i weighed my self and I'm still the same but my belt has gotten bigger I'm down three notches.

Don't know if the flight's direct but we will be spending about twelve hours traveling ugh oh well great time for study!

oh and you really didn't have to send the i home back! i am grateful don't get me wrong, but at the same time it is very heavy and i would rather go without music than pay an extra 150 to bring it to Peru! but thanks it means alot that you care so much for me!

Sounds like a lot is happening in Arizona! wow! i love to hear but if you want my thoughts on all of it i need handwritten letters there is way to much to talk about in 30 minutes!!! ahh, oh well this week has been awesome though.

I have $99 cash with $100 emergency, have no idea how much is on my debit card i haven't checked in forever, but any help will be appreciated even just knowing its there for me.

ok well my comp says they have cool belts in Peru, but I'll need to get myself some llama fur moccasins they are supposed to be waaaaay comfortable.. haha, he has been there a couple of times doing humanitarian work and it is awesome to have his experience!

Spanish is coming along well, my brain now has a switch which lets me go back and forth when I'm thinking, which has been a blessing in its own right!

We have been talking alot about identity this week and i just want to let you know that i know i am a son of god that he knows who i am and every detail about me, and that he is there with me through every step of my life carrying me when i become to weak to walk.

It has been same old same old though i am getting way excited to go to Peru! we were looking at the calendar and saw we have been her for almost 20 days! it is soo hard to believe so much time has passed, days are long weeks are short and it is a real blessing to keep a journal because i really can't remember anything already let alone in two years good grief too much happens!

tell every one i love them and tell tate i am proud of his baseball powers aaron for his giant brain working on that project and marlee for always being soo amazingly wonderful at everything she puts her mind to! Tell shan that i love him and mom be patient with everyone, as far as I'm concerned as long we are doing what the lord would have us do and loving everyone in our lives everything will work out, if not in this life than in the eternities but everything Will be awesome!!

love you can't wait to write from Peru my address will probably change but hopefully not my email looking forward to the next wave of letters!!! jajaja!

hasta luego. para siempre dios este con vos!
