Hey Everyone!
This week started out really rough, but got alot better on the weekend which was nice. we had a stake conference this weekend which was really cool and inspiring, and the coolest part was that the session on sunday was broadcasted from Salt Lake, and we got to hear from Elder Christoferson and President Monson. there were alot of technical dificulties to say the least, but once they got it working it was really cool. we were actually able to find alot of great people this week too, and didnt get water thrown on us or anything which was nice! im not sure if i mentioned that before, but it wasnt exactly a great memory lol. anyways, we just keep on going here in Juliaca and i just keep trying to do the best i can. my companion is finishing his mission here in 2 weeks, so its pretty much a sure thing that ill be here for atleast one more change, just with a new companion. i havenbt really been taking pics so sorry because i know you all like to see them. hgopefully there will be some more picture worthy things this week..i love you all and really apreciated the emails this week because i know that its not to easy to find the time to write. and i like the nickname Cody Poki by the way. ive had the chance to see that movie a couple of times now ha and alot of these experiences kind of are similar.
¡¡¡¡CuĂ­dense muchĂ­simo!!!!

Hey Everyone!

this week was another rough one here in juliaca. the family that we have that was going to get baptized had a death in the family so weve kinda had to give them some time and stuff. besides that family though weve found a couple other people to teach, but its still really hard here. luckily though i am having some success being a zone leader here though, and the zone is really improving a ton. the missionaries are working harder than ever, and are seeing some good results because of it. hopefully we can keep this up here and even though were not having much success here atleast we can help others to. our sector is getting better though, it just started off sooo bad that its been taking awhile to see results..anyways im doing alright. ill try and get some more pics this week for you guys. sorry that ive been slacking on that though. the ones this week are from a family home evening with a family and the other ones just me by a huge tire..kinda random lol. 

love elder anderson!

Hey everyone!
So this week  started out really rough like all of the other ones but sunday some miracles happened basically that i dont even know how to explain. some of them wouldnt sound like miracles to you guys or you probably wouldnt even understand them, but for me they were exactly what i needed and im happy again which is the best feeling ever. one of the amazing things that happend though, is that a 20 year old guy, Hyrum has become active in the church again, and all because we have become his friends and helped him out. this sunday though he invited us to some chicken sandwhiches and some fruit salads, and on the way he told us that he was seriously thinking about going on the mission. he is in the middle of studdies and work and a gf but told me that he feels like he needs to go. after all these weeks of being here thinking that i wasnt doing any good, i almost started crying right there in the street. i cant even explain how much happiness that brought to me, and how much it inspired me to keep going. the greatest part about how amazing sunday was for me is that i found out through an email that someone really dear to me was fasting for me. please dont stop fasting and praying for those that are in need, because the blessings do come, and they change lives. 
Love Elder Anderson
