Monday Sept. 24, 2012: Hermana Bowles--Woo-hoo, going to Iquitos

My Dear family:

How neat that they dedicated the temple in Brigham City!!!!   Who else was there besides President Packer?

Wow.....if this email is a little scatter-brained I`m sorry.  President Blunck called Hermana Vasquez and I last night and today we`re being transferred to the Zona Punchana in Iquitos.   We have to take all 23 kilos of our stuff crammed in dusty luggage to Lima.  Well,actually....the plan is that we fly to Lima at 6 tonight with the other hermanas in the mission for a special hermana conference in Lima tomorrow. After the conference we have to renew my Peru ID card and then Wednesday or Thursday we fly to Iquitos to work in a ward there.   It`s sad to leave Morales because I think of all the sweet sisters and families that I honestly have grown to love.  What will we do without them????  oh my heart is so sad.

We had such a special zone conference this week that focused on how to study.  It was so wonderful and going through a practice study of the scriptures with President Blunck was so spiritually special. The Book of Mormon came alive as he taught us how to put in the historical context, pick out conditions and promises, and personalize everything for the families we are teaching. 
Scripture study is what will keep us converted.

love always,
Hermana Bowles
