|We took a boat tour to Murchison Falls|
and saw hippos and crocodiles in the
river and baboons, birds, warthogs and
elephants on the shore.
|Our first time to see the Nile. It has two major|
tributaries, the White Nile flows North from Lake
Victoria in Uganda, the Blue Nile begins at
LakeTana in Ethiopia, and they meet in Sudan.
|We tried the crocodile but we liked|
the steak and pork chops better.
|Hartebeest and Giraffe|
|We couldn't find the lions.|

I know that Christ was born, lived, died, and conquered death. That He did it all because He loves us and He loves His Father. I love you all and I hope that in these next two weeks we can think more about a the love of Christ and more than just think about it, we can put it in practice." Elder Johnson

I asked what he did for exercise and he sent these photos. This was his transfer week but he isn't having any changes. He said," I am not a super smart person and I don't have a ton of life experience but somehow the spirit helps me to counsel people who are twice my age and have families. I don't understand how Heavenly Father does it but I am extremely grateful that he lets me participate in His work and i am grateful that he can use me as an instrument. I just hope and pray that I can be a useful and efficient instrument in his hands." "Also, I am excited to start the Christmas season and I hope that we can all remember the real meaning of Christmas from the start. I love you all bucket loads!" Elder Johnson

He passed out paper bow ties when he ran for student body in Utah.
Today we had a district P-Day and so we had a Thanksgiving lunch. We all put in and ate a bunch. We had grilled meat (thanks to the Argentine) hot dogs (Chilean style) brown gravy (made by the one and only, Elder Johnson from packets I found in my last room) mashed potatoes, chicken and fries.
The work here is progressing. We are finding more people every week and working with the ward better every week as well. I love you guys tons and I hope you all have a good week. " Elder Johnson

|No photo this week so here is a flashback of|
Matt as Flynn Ryder from a Halloween.
When I started my mission, I felt like Peru was just another country where people speak Spanish, but now I really feel proud to be here in Peru. The people here are fantastic and have an amazing history. I know I am working with the descendentes of Lehi and Nefi. I love reading the Book of Mormon and teaching it to the people because I can really testify to them that it was written for them more than 2000 years ago.
