Ok so I had a really cool Picture to send you guys, but I just figured out
the computer I'm on doesn't have usb, so I'll just tell you. I was still
sleeping when the phone rang at 6am, and I said something like ´´this better
be an emergancy´´, Elder Hale answered it and then ran up and jumped on me
and says IT CAME IT CAME! Yes…, After more than 3 months, I finally got my
things from Santa Cruz, seven packages, very nice. I finally got the pics
from the fam reunion and more food than I know what to do with. Ha by the
way, no one needs to send me any kind of drink mix anymore I have 5 pounds
of it now. And I also got the big card from the Laurels, haha. Tell sister
Petty thanks. And to top it all off, when I showed up to go to internet my
zoneleader goes, ´´Elder Wilson, Te odio´´ (I hate you). Cuz there were 7
more waiting for me. Needless to say that pretty much made my week. Not much
else has been happening in good ol peru, on thanksgiving, we had interviews,
and Pres Leyba told us they are going to start sending us outside of lima.
The Bolivia Elders I mean. And I just found out on Wednseday all the Bolivia
Elders are going to meet together and they're going to tell us something….
Might be really really good, or really really bad, who knows. We also have
only one week less in this change, and I soooo want to get out of lima haha.
I would absolutely love to go to a province. But who knows we'll see what
Haha nothing else has really been happening, The Spanish (they call it
castellano here) is going pretty good. I can tell I'm way better than when I
arrived in Las Flores. My teaching is still pretty bad haha, I'm working on
that though.
Mom I had a question for you. I sent film from one of my disposable
cameras a while ago, did that ever show up? There were some pretty funny
pictures on there.
Sounds like everyone had a great thanksgiving, I wasn’t too homesick that
day. Kk, ha I don’t remember what I ate but I'm guessing chicken and rice.
But now I actually get to start counting down to the day I get to call you
guys, I just found out we can call from here instead of you guys having to
call me which sounds like it'll be more complicated. But I'll find out more
about it this week and fill you all in next email.

Alright well I gotta go, I love you guys soooo much, and I'll talk to you
all in a few weeks.
Love Elder Wilson

2nd Nephi 15: 26-30
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth; and behold, they shall come with speed swiftly; none shall be weary nor stumble among them.

27 None shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken;

28 Whose arrows shall be sharp, and all their bows bent, and their horses’ hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind, their roaring like a lion.

29 They shall roar like young lions; yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry away safe, and none shall deliver.

30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea; and if they look unto the land, behold, darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof
