Hey Everyone!
The picture is of an actividad that there was in the other Stake of Cusco that i got to go to and where I saw my old bishop from Santiago and my convert with her kid! Its been exactly a year since i had seeen them, but it was awesome to see that they are doing so great! My convert even told me that shes all spiritual now which was awesome haha! Everything is going great here really and im really just enjoying every day. Our stake president came and talked to the whole zone today and then our mission president so it was really sweet. The mission seems to just get better every day, and im starting to see that ive developed alot of great habits that im going to take home with me. The stake president today told us that every single family that comes to him with problems or is thinking about getting a divorce had stopped doing the basic things like praying and reading the scriptures every day. Its amazing to see how much the little things affect us in this life, but thanks to the mission i know that if i always do them that ill be okay and will have a happy family. anyways, i just thought id share that with you all! Love you guys! Elder Anderson. oh and my new companion is Elder Coti from Guatemala and is a really cool guy. We are getting along great, and the time is truly flying!!!!!

Hey Everyone!
This week was awesome, and we had an awesome baptism! Albert went through a ton of changes in this last month to be able to be baptized, and it was definitely one of the most suprising and at the same time amazing things that ive seen. It came to the point where we thought that he wasnt going to be able to make the changes, and i think that even when we were about to give up on him, the Lord touched his heart and helped him to do it. Im truly amazed by what happened, and it just goes to show that the Lord really does have all power and can help whatever person make whatever change. I learned this week that nobody is tooooo lost to come back to the right path and to get to know their Savior Jesus Christ. 
Also, I found out that I´m getting home at 11:55 am on July 26th. I forgot my flight number but im flying by Delta Airlines and will be coming from Atlanta Georgia. Everyones invited thatd like to go! If youd like any more information just let me know. Love you guys! Elder Anderson. Oh and i hope that you like the pics of the baptism and of the BBQ that we had with President Calderon for Father´s Day. And happy Father´s day to everyone as well!!!

Hey Everyone!
This week was amazing, and we had another baptism that was sweet
because it brought a family together and really helped them a ton. We
found out yesterday though that my companion Elder Parra has a change
which sucks. We seriously had the best change together and became best
friends. It looks like hes going to be the new assistant though for
all the success that weve had and how amazing he is which is sweet
because he´ll help the mission a ton. It just stinks cuz i wanted to
finish the mission with him but i guess that im just happy that he had
a change and not me because I love this sector and we should have alot
of success this next change. Its weird to think that this is my last
change and that im finishing the mission, but it hasnt really hit me
yet and i hope that it doesnt until i get home ha! Love you guys!
Elder Anderson!

Hey Everyone!
This week was amazing!!!!!!! I found out that one of my investigators from Quillabamba that moved to Italia while i was there got baptized along with his wife!!!!! He had a ton of doubts while we were teaching him, but we were able to resolve alot of them before he left. It also helped that he was reading more than 500 pages a day about the church doctrine ha! I was able to give him a blessing the night before he left, and well i guess Ill share more about that in another moment with you guys because its really spiritual and personal to me. Its enough i think just to say that the mission has been the most amazing experience ever for me and that i feel truly grateful for getting the chance to be an instrument in the Lords hands. I know with all my heart that the Priesthood is real and that it is very powerful and sacred. Thanks to everyone that have helped me to become a member of this Church and that have helped me to go on the mission. ITs changed my life.
