Monday May 14, 2012: Hermana Bowles

Hola Padres!
It was so good to talk to you two yesterday.   It's incredible how fast one hour goes by.
Thanks for your email after...I guess it's just hard because it preps you for real life.   Yikes.
As far as your questions are concerned.....YES there is ice-cream.   There are vendors with their bike carts all over the plaza.   It seems like every little "bodegita" has one of those little portable sliding glass door freezers sitting in front.   Icecream is my little pleasure here.   The best part is that there is one brand that sells for .50 centimo....that's like 20 cents!!!   Don't worry...the most I've eaten is two at a time :)
We aren't running as much as we did tired.  But at least run/walk our laundry up to Blanca's house Friday mornings and then pick it up Tuesday mornings.
Hola Familia!
Hope Mother's Day was wonderful and lovely for everyone.   Los Moyobambinos celebrated with lots and lots of parties.   There was an artisan's fair in the plaza de armas and Friday night there was a dance festival in the plaza in front of our house.   After we planned, Hermana Rodriguez and I sat and watched one of the jungle dances for a bit.   So neat to see!
Rented a combi as a zone to drive the two hours to Tarapoto for interviews on Wednesday and zone conference on Thurday.   It is a lot hotter in's a lot more city than dear sweet pueblito Moyo, too.  I love Zone Conference because they train us with three zones together--Moyobamba, Tarapoto, and Yurimaguas.  If I counted right there are around ten sisters in Tarapoto.....haha if there's a sister in Lima North it's more than likely that theyre' in Tarapoto.   It was neat to all be together.  There is such a spirit around President and Sister Blunck.  It is so powerful to be with them.  Now we've all been sent back to our areas to work even harder :)
President Blunck focused Zone Conference on the Atonement.  We are to focus on that with our investigators to help them to baptism and help them come to church.   I've already seen the power of that with Hermana Rodriguez this week.  The Atonement was a sacrifice for each one of us individually.  I know that Christ suffered pain, death, and sin for all of us, but resurrected and lives today.
Love always,
Hermana Bowles
