Feb. 16th, 2015 update ....

Elder Reed's update was fun this week, as his siblings had the day off school and he was able to email them "real-time" for a bit - they all loved that! 

Elder Reed has been *very* busy - he and his companion taught 32 lessons during the week, while the goal was 25 - they worked hard! From the pictures above, it looks like they worked at cleaning as well. :)

Elder Reed talked about how they don't have warm water in the morning anymore, just ice cold water. "What a way to wake up in the morning. You start out a little cold just out from the blankets, gather your things and eventually turn on the water only to realize that no matter which way you turn the switch, you can't get anything other than the ice cold, been-sitting-above-the-apartment-all-night-without-the-sun-to-possibly-warm-up-the-water-cold. It's nice at night because I've been in the sun all day and sweating on top of that, but not in the morning. Hope the same thing doesn't happen in the winter down here!" :)

Elder Reed also said it's really hot down there sometimes. When we were "real-time" talking yesterday, he spoke of it being so hot and stuffy - while we here in Ohio were at about 5 degrees above zero. :) Fun times! It is interesting that he is in Summer down in Peru, while we are in Winter here. :)

Elder Reed's spiritual thought for the week: Hebrews 12: 9-10. "It says to honor your parents and what's more, your God. Your Heavenly Parent." - so true!

Until next week - enjoy!
