I'm still in Campoy. There are transfers next week though and either me or my Comp will leave. My comp is cool, I'll miss him. I haven't gotten the package you sent with Vanessa yet. Its been awhile since I've gotten mail, the last thing was the jacket (which I love thank you)

About the music, we use these little DVD players to watch PMG videos and scripture videos and we can put thumb drives in and play music with them too. But only church music like EFY and MoTab and other cool LDS stuff.

I had an Idea. After Halloween when all the candy is on sale you could send a bunch to keep in my bag to give to little kids in the street. We always see kids and they are so cute and it would make their day.

That is cool about the (SCHS) football half time, too bad we lost but hey rugby is awesome haha. I want to email coach P and coach Day could you give me their emails?

I hope the Ward is doing good. I wish I would have worked harder when I was still at home, there are so many things that we can do as young men that I wish I would have done. I wasted way to much time on my phone.

Here are some pics of p day a few weeks ago we made huge hot dogs called completos with guacamole, so good. And last week we went to a zoo in central de Lima. It was so cool I saw animals from South America that I didn't even know existed. And also some classics like the Lama.

Other pictures, there's some of me at the zoo, one with my Zone right now, one with "J" who I've told you about, (his shop is doing awesome he is making a bunch of money and he remodeled everything and now has computers and stuff its cool.) The one with the guy with long hair. His name is "M" and he was baptized in like 1980 but was inactive ever since.  We found him a few weeks ago. I gave him that shirt and tie to wear to church because he literally is almost dirt poor and he was so happy to go to church with us wearing it. He has no family, or really many friends, all he does is work (cleaning) and lives in his little shack.

I miss you guys but the mission life is such a blessing in its self, all the miracles I'm seeing in these peoples lives thanks to the gospel. It doesn't matter a persons situation, we are all children of God and we all have access to the gospel, if we accept it. Keep doing the small and simple things to always have the spirit with you!

Getting items to Elder Lambson

You can email Elder Lambson at


You can mail him a single sheet letter using the Pouch System - The Church provides pouch mail service from your location to Church headquarters, where letters are forwarded to the Missionary by a private courier. Pouch mail leaves SLC each Friday, only postcards or one-page correspondences (no envelopes) written on one side of the page may be sent through the Pouch.
Lay the letter blank side down. Fold the bottom of the letter about one-third of the way up the page and crease. Fold the top and crease. Secure the long side with 2 pieces of tape, but do not seal the ends. Write your name and complete return address in the top left corner. Attach a 1st Class postage stamp in the top rt corner. In the middle, write the Missionary address:

Elder Kiel Lambson
Peru Lima East Mission
POB 30150
Salt Lake City, UT 84130-0150

As far as I know UPS and Fed Ex are still delivering packages but no USPS deliveries are being made per International Mail Services:

Start date: 16th September 2014
End date: Ongoing

Postal workers in Peru started an indefinite strike on 16th September 2014. This has affected both inbound and outbound mail services.

Update: 2nd October 2014

The strike action in Peru is still ongoing, and the International Mail Hub in Peru, is full to capacity with mail which has not been processed, and subsequently the airline which transports mail in to Peru on our behalf is currently unable to accept any mail in to Peru. As a result mail services to Peru are now suspended and any mail we have on hand in the UK for Peru will be returned to sender.

Packages may be sent via Private Courier:
Put all items in large Zip Lock bags (2 gallon bags are best) with Elder Kiel Lambson - Lima Peru East Mission written on the outside of the bags. Mail or deliver the bags to:
El Inka Envios
1604 S Prospect
Salt Lake City UT 84104

Inside the box you are mailing to Vanessa, put an envelope inside of it addressed to Vanessa. Inside the envelope write a list of everything you are mailing - declare the value, try not to send anything worth more than $50 otherwise it causes issues at Customs. Also put a check in the envelope, it needs to include the deliver fee of $6.00 and then $6.50 per pound. If the contents you are mailing are 4 pounds, her check would total $32.00. She will deliver the packages to the Mission Home. Christmas packages need to be to her no later than November 10th. You can see her info on FaceBook at:

Hi Family-
We are teaching a lot of families right now. Tonight we are teaching a family about the Plan of Happiness. Have you read Ballards book yet? Thanks for the football updates, sounds like a good season haha! I can't wait to read the Conference talks, keep making good choices and being latter day Saints. Thanks for sending the 4 generation chart and thank you so much for all of the help you are seriously the best mom ever!! Have a good week.

Love Elder Lambson

The people in my selfie are my pensionista and his family, and Elder Allred, he transferred out though.

This was taken last week on the field on Pday, me Elder Haught, Elder Balderrama, and Elder Gutierrez. We all live together and its the best!

Last Pday was awesome, we played soccer, capture the flag, and ultimate Frisbee. You guys are real latter day saints, doing all of the little things like watching the movies and videos and reading your scriptures and have your callings in the ward, seriously that is amazing! There are so many members of the church that have just kind of faded away here. There is a scripture in Alma 37 : 6 and 7 that says by the smalls things, great things will come to pass. I love that scripture because its so true, and we really do need to always remember that we are latter day saints.

Conference was super awesome! I watched it all in Spanish! Understood a lot but I guess you could say it wasn't as deep haha. But I still loved it and it was awesome that I really did understand most. I love our family so much and all of our awesome friends in the Ward and other places. You and Dave should read the book Our Search For Happiness by Russel M Ballard it is so good and really helps us understand everything about the church and about our lives. Thank you so much for all of the packages and everything! You really are the best mom ever and I am so glad for all of our memories!

Super cool you guys are watching Conference and Football!! I check my emails from a little internet place, they are all over the place. Kids are always playing on the internet and they pay 1 sole each hour its like 30 cents American. Sounds cool there is a LDS new movie. That's fun you guys got to watch Conference together. We have some great memories. Thank you for raising us great mom. We are watching General Conference at the Stake Center next Saturday and Sunday as a stake (not everyone has internet in their homes to watch it) so that will be cool. Its cool cause it gives the Investigators (we are inviting four different families) the opportunities to attend ¨church¨.

Everything is going super great! I'm super happy and I'm learning sooo much! I am happy that you guys are happy. Haha I don't really know what else to say.

Today for Pday we are playing capture the flag it should be super cool! The time is flying here, how is it already October haha. I was in high school last year and now I'm out here trying to change peoples lives for the better. Love you! These pics are of part of my area called 28 de julio we have some cool investigators that live up here and almost all that is below is our area. Love you!! Have a great week!!
