 I would first like to take this opportunity to thank all the people that have been writing me faithfully while I have been off at war. I will not name names, but you know who you are.
 Really, it does help to lift the spirits when you see your inbox full of fun messages not about finances. I may not be able to respond to all of ya'll every week, but I really will try to every month. You just have to  be patient with your lil missionary. 

And now, funny things that I have noticed about Peru. 
1. Peppa Pig (British cartoon) is super popular but they do not know that the characters really are British, because the talking is in Spanish. 
2. Backyardagins,(Nickelodeon cartoon)  also super duper popular. 
3. There is a ritz crackery snack here called Kraps. 
4. There are about a million different ways here to say the word alli, aca, alla, and  halla. And they all mean here       and there. 
5. Every single time I have seen a salon here in Chincha, there have been like a bajillion pics of Brad Pitt. Whatz       the deal people?

Since I am still staying in Chincha with Hermana Mendoza this transfer, we had service in an old folks home, where Catholic nuns worked! It was super cool. And the sad part was that Hermana Alonso had to leave to Ayachcho, but I am super happy for her and super sure she is gonna rock it there. 

I will write more about the investigators next week because I ran out of time! Lo siento! 

Love, Hermana Addington
PS. Dad could you send me fruit by the foot in a package? I miss it

Hermana Mendoza, a Catholic nun, some lady, probably the old folks home coordinator, and 
Hermana Hannah Addington. Also take a moment to notice that they are wearing pants. Pants are a blessing.

Hermana Mendoza and Hermana Hannah Addington. I have no idea as to what they are holding, or importance it holds to them, but I really like Hannah's curled hair and Hermana Mendoza's eyebrows. 

This is a photo (go right to left) of me, Hma. Mendoza, Hma. Milagros (a member), Hma. Powell, and Hma. Alonso. This happened right before Alonso left for her transfer in Ayachcho. She is gonna be eating guinea pig in abundance.
