May 9, 2016 48 days until Elder Lambson's Homecoming Talk

This was such a great week working with Elder Chota. He is from Tingo, Chachapoya, las amazonas. He was kicked by a horse when he was about 15 and cancer began to grow in his leg. Due to the rapidness of the growth the only option left was to amputate. He gets around just fine with his one leg and his crutch. 
He has been living here in Lima with his brother and he has always had the desire to serve a full time mission ever since he was converted in 2011 when he was 16. This week with the permission of the mission president and the stake president he was set apart as an elder and worked with my companion and I all week long. Depending on our informs he will be able to start his papers to head out for 2 years. He has done an awesome job!!! He is such a trooper, he has worked hard and hasn't shown one sign of weakness or lack of self confidence. Its been a great privilege to be able to work with such a great example like him!! 
My companion Elder Moreno from Mexico is also a great example and a dear friend, he will be staying here in Universal ward and will receive a new companion as the zone leader here in Santa Anita. As for me... :) Im headed out to finish the training of a new elder just starting the mission in an area called Surquillo, Surco. Its one of the top 3 richest areas in the mission haha. Elder Moreno said that the first time in his life that he ever saw a Ferrari, was in this area haha. So Im super excited. I know that its going to be an amazing experience and I know that all that I have learned in these 22 months is going to be necessary to strengthen this ward and this new Elder who is going to be my las companion in the mission.

We had an awesome week!!

This week we found out some awesome news, we have a young woman with a baptismal date that is progressing so well, she is so intelligent and understands so well. Apart from knowing, she has also felt that this gospel is true. We taught her with her mom yesterday who we have met a couple of times and has also come to church. She told us that she knew the church when she was 16 and that she was baptized too! She had fallen away for college and relationships and then got involved with other religions. But now she understands better the church and has found the true path again. It is such a miracle that now the difference between her and her daughter is that now they will be doing it together. They are going to strengthen each other and its going to be so awesome! She will be baptized on the 28th. 

It was awesome talking to you guys on mothers day! I love you so so much!! The Gospel is real!!! It makes bad men good, good men better, and truly changes human nature! Let Him work miracles in your life!
Elder Lambson :)
