Feb 8th, 2016 update

Elder Sinuiri's last day! Well done, thou good and faithful servant of the Lord!
[Elder Reed also shared a picture of his feet/legs after climbing a hill/mountain for 90 minutes, then coming back down in under 15 minutes - but it wasn't pretty, so I didn't post it here. Ha ha! Let's just say, there was a LOT of dirt. :) ]

Elder Reed stated that this week was rough because his companion of many weeks, Elder Sinuiri, finished his mission, and that was tough. Elder Reed also talked about his trip up and down the hill/mountain, and how dirty he got. He said he was able to see the Pacific Ocean, the Temple, and other Zones from there. 

Elder Reed also shared that they got to visit a lot of families this week, and he didn't realize how important it was to do that simple thing, that by visiting, they were able to share an invitation to come to church, or to share thoughts with them that were just what they needed.

Elder Reed is still in Huachipa for the time being, and Elder Reed is not District Leader now, as someone else needed that opportunity. Elder Reed didn't want anyone to be surprised at that - he hasn't done anything wrong. :)  

Elder Reed was able to do divisions during the week and he said it was very hot there. He said that this year, it seems that the summer will be very hot. 

Elder Reed shared the thought that everything happens for a reason, and that he hopes everyone is doing well. Until next week!
