I'm Dying in Cusco!



Mom

Well I never thought I would make it to this moment in my mission. I am at the point where I am in my last change. I  won't be having a change and Elder S. isn't either. So I'll be dying here in Cusco. I can't believe I'm at this moment. It still feels like yesterday I entered into the MTC! still remember leaving y'all in the Atlanta airport 2 years ago. Wow how time really goes by so fast. 

I also can't believe Shelby is graduating and Shae too. What the junk life really is going on so fast. The only advice I have is live every moment like its your last.

The pictures in Dropbox look amazing. It's great that the carpet is looking so good.

The story of the week. It was just we had a really powerful lesson with a less active family. M and J. We taught the first lesson. It was one of the strongest first lessons I've had. It was amazing. Remember, remember that We need to look for the less actives they are so important too. They need our help. 

Well i love y'all so much keep up the good work. I'll be expecting a story about the Book of Mormon next week. 

Love
Elder Kotter

So this is what we do on P-day when there isn't much else to do! No one broke anything!

Machu Picchu





MOM

Machu Picchu IS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! enough said. I can't wait to show you all these awesome things that I am seeing in the mission. It was a long and tiring day, but it was so worth it. 

This week was much better than last week. We are working hard and having success. I want to talk to you about a less active we are working with. His name is 
W. He has been a member since he was 11. His brother is our ward mission leader and he's really active, but W has always just been kinda dragged to church by his brother in a good way but he never had much testimony. Well, we have been teaching him and he is making leaps and bounds. Everything we teach him he puts into practice. He is reading the Book of Mormon. He wants to do his home teaching visits he even said he wants to leave with us and teach people. You may ask, where did all this excitement come from? Well I can tell you its not from Elder Kotter and Elder S. It's from his desire to change, and then he listens to the spirit and makes the changes necessary. Most importantly he makes the effort to make prayer, scripture study and church attendance part of his life and a habit. That is what really changes people. Those three things I know you can really see the difference in those who do that and those who don't. I love this gospel and how it can change us if we really do the things that are asked of us. 

I cant wait to Skype with y'all Sunday at 6.

Love
Elder Kotter
