Floating Reed City of Uros

I can't believe another week has gone by so fast!  Is crazy how time seems to be speeding up as I get closer to the end of my mission.  I can't believe I have 8 weeks left, but just have to finish these last few weeks working hard.

We unfortunately had to postpone our baptism from last week.  The new date is this Saturday (the 22nd).

We had a great "super" P-day this week at Uros.  It is a super big tourist trap now for sure.  Overpriced stuff that they sell on the shore cheaper than on the islands!  We had probably 80 missionaries on the floating islands!  It was our entire zone, the 2 zones from Puno and all the missionaries from Sicuani.

Me and my companion started running this morning.  We got really tired at like the mile+ mark.  Then my chest was throbbing, etc..  People where looking at us like we were crazy.  Was sort of funny!  I guess the elevation (12,000 feet) makes seeing a jogger something more unique.

We worked hard this week, trying to find more investigators and started teaching the two families we found last week.  About the only excitement that happened was that we almost got EATEN by dogs!  They came out of nowhere in a pack and just charged us!  We are fairly used to crazy dogs here in Peru, so we just threw some huge rocks at them and after hitting a few, finally forced them to leave us alone.

Well we are off to go play soccer and run some more errands.  Love you guys!  Looking forward to Mother Day Skype.
