sooooo familllly!
awesome awesome week! really had alot of cool experiences.
monday we played basketball and volleyball as a zone, it was super fun, hadn't played for a longgggg long time. tuesday night we had a family home evening with the family of milagros and her dad came! she had been having alot of troubles with him, he wasn't wanting her to go to church but she's been strong and going anyways. it was a super cool experience. also this saturday we had an appointment with a guy named Herman. we have been teaching him for like three weeks and he's been way awesome. we have been kicking ourselves for never inviting him to baptism, its just we were kinda scared of scaring him off, which is completely the opposite of what we should be thinking. but saturday we sat down with him and read 2 Nephi 32 together, and it was amazing. he received so much personal revelation and he was so excited. but the best part was how strong the spirit was, it was stronger than i have ever felt. it was amazing being there witnessing his conversion right in front of my eyes. it was super cool. i could say it was the coolest lesson of my mission. the next day was sunday and he came super excited and his baptism is gonna be saturday! at 6 am!
other news is that i got a huge hookup on some new glasses. the ones i had have been hurting my head so this guy in my ward got me some super nice ones for like 30 bucks. haha they are like coletons, but i totally didn't copy him. they are just like pday glasses. i need new contacts asap
today we are going to a place called grau. its in the center of lima so that's gonna be fun maybe buy some Christmas gifts.
the zone is getting alot better, we have alot more missionaries that are willing to work hard and are having alot of success, there are 8 baptisms planned for this weekend so we are way excited.
i love my mission. truly the greatest experience of my life. the gospel is true and it brings so much happiness to peoples lives. i marvel everyday at the miracles i see as people live the gospel.
thanks for being such an awesome family. thank you for all your love and support. please continue to pray for me and the people here in peru. time is going so fast. i am still having a hard time believing coy is coming home next week. i don't want to think i only have 9 months left. haha this is crazy. i am loving every minute of my mission and i love the people of peru. i love you all

here's my letter to president

Buenos dias presidente!
ha sido una gran semana presidente. primeramente quisiera pedir diculpa por no haberle enviado mi carta la semana anterior, tuve algunas problemas en cuanto de mi maquina. pero aqui esta mi carta para este semana. este semana ha sido muy buena. quisiera contarle que tuvimos una leccion con un investigador que recibio mas revalacion personal en una leccion que he visto en toda mi mision. leimos 2 nefi 31 y el su puso tan dispuesto de bautizarse. fue maravilloso. relment vi el poder de la conversion que da el libro de mormon. fue la leccon mas poderosa de mi mision y mi testimonio aumentó bastante. gracias por todo presidente, y cuidese mucho
Elder Paolacci
