Yeah for UofA!!! Sounds like they are doing great. Tell dad I wish I could give him an address but sadly I really can't- addresses are difficutl to pin down here. Spanish is coming. Most people here say my accent isn't half bad either. No one believes I've only been in the mission for one month because of it. But little by little I'm learning more words. An elder here says after the first change for some reason the spanish comes quicker. Uncle Les wrote me and he said it took him 4 months to be comfortable with spanish, which seems to be the general consenses. Did you tell Lorena that I'm in Peru and I will come home a spanish wiz!? I remember her well. Oh, tell Trisha Riggs hello and thanks for the letter. I can't believe Cathys B-day is here already! Happy birthday Cathy! I can't believe I've been here for three months well on the mission. Yeah for Fia, tell her congrats for me!

Oh, we had another baptism this last weekend. We baptized a mom and one of her sons! It was really cool - in time, the whole family! We also had a small earthquake last week- well, Inca did, but we felt it for like a second. I didn't like it. I pray every night for no more for the next year and three months! lol. Things here are going, my comp and I have challenged two couples to push up their wedding day so they can get baptized sooner and then get sealed in the temple sooner. So far I don't know the results but I´ll let you know when I know.  I love you all and miss you! Tell everyone hi for me! Go U of A. I'm told that when it gets hot here it´s like ASU- not much clothes- lol jk. I love you, I´ll write on Monday too, so write me a lot!-Hermana Wood!

That's good you found Josh a job, I pray for him & Jeni a lot. I'm excited for U of A. Oh, so my pensionista, her husband has this saying: a woman that doesnt make me angry is a not a woman, it is a man. I hope you like that. He has two daughters and one son. My pensionista does my laundry and cooks all my meals and is my mom on the mission- well, the one I have right now is my mom out here. I heard there isn't another pensionista like her here. I saw someone with a USC hat the other day, it made me laugh. I love you and miss you lots and I miss the games. We´ll have to go to a few when i get home! Say hi to Uncle Wayne or Tio Wayne for me and the rest of the family. If you see Matt tell him it's true they only eat cornflakes here! I love you so much! Talk to you later. Oh and I started singing Hey Jude the other day, it was funny, and Hello I |Love You by The Doors, tell Stephanie! Go Glee! Tell her I want to go to Disneyland when I get home!
