Another week

First off heck yea we are going to Skype in 2 weeks. I've gotta start thinking about that.
Well this week was kinda hard, but not too bad. we Still got to teach, but people just kept failing out appointments. I don't really have any stories from this week
 I can believe it's getting so close to time for Shelby to graduate. I can't wait to see all the pictures
Yes I did peel like crazy, and it hurt so bad. That's why you should put on sunscreen when you are going to hike up mountains. You get burnt if you don't!
We have 2 people with baptismal date one for 9 of may and the other one for 16 of may I'm super excited there names are C and S. I can't wait for it

I don't know really what to say about this week. It was kinda hard and I don't know what else to write.
I really love that quote about the carrot and the egg. It's so true we can choose if we are going to harden our hearts or if we are going to listen to the lord. ALWAYS LISTEN TO THE LORD HE KNOWS BEST.

I love you so much mom. I can't wait for you to see all the awesome things here in Peru. It's going to be super awesome.

Another Week


Well first off this week was a good week. We have 2 now with baptismal dates. They both have so much desire to become members of the church they just need to receive their answers. They are so awesome. Elder S. and I are working super hard and we are having super spiritual lessons it's really awesome I love it.

Well this p-day we went to the canyon of Apurimac in the little village of Curahuasi. Supposedly, it is the deepest canyon in the world you might want to fact check me on that, but that's what I've heard. I got super sun burned too. See the pictures. (not posting pics, if you want to see them I'll e-mail them to you)

This week we started working out super hard. getting up a 6 everyday so hopefully I can come home with muscles. 

I haven't gone to Macchu Picchu but I'm planing on going May 4th. So I'm super excited. It will be a good way to help me finish my mission with lots of energy. 

Well I can't believe you got my travel plans. I can't wait for that hug!

I love y'all so much,

So I LOVE THE REDNECK KITE FLYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you missed the Redneck Kite Flying Video you can view it now....or move on to the rest of Elder Kotter's letter.


I love all the pictures and videos. I realized I need to take more for y'all I'm sorry about that. I just don't think about that kind of stuff.

So my new comp is a really good guy. He's got a ton of potential. He really is an awesome guy he just has a few things he has to work out just like us all. He's the one sitting across from me when we are eating waffles. YES THAT'S RIGHT WAFFLES!!!!!!!!!!! I told my pention that I love waffles and well I told her that for like months and I don't know where, but she found a waffle iron. We ate waffles which was the best thing in the world. We even ate them with maple syrup. I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

So the work is progressing. We are just busy. I'm trying to make the last bit of my mission count. I love it here. I really don't have any stories this week. Just know that your son is happy, healthy and doing the work of the lord. I love you so much keep the faith

 So all those pictures were awesome. It was kinda weird to see me in the pictures, but i wasn't actually there. Well Matt and Amber look so happy. 

SO the work is going on. Changes are this week elder Alzamora is leaving and I'm staying my next comp will be Elder Salas. All I've heard about him is that hes from Lima. 

So the conference was super awesome this week. I love every single talk. Every time I watch the conference it gets better and better. 

I'm sending some pictures that Elder Freestone sent me. They are of baptisms that we started teaching one of them is Leonidus and the other is Walter. Leonidus got baptized the week after I left Puerto.

Keep being awesome and know that the work is progressing. We got Cynthia with a date for April 25th she wants to be a member she only has to get her testimony. I love this work and tell Matthew to shave his beard!!!
