Zac will keep trying, but the internet connection is so slow that the pictures he tries to send won't go through before his time for emailing is up. Here is an excerpt from his email today:
This week was a good week. No sickness to report. On Monday we went to the beach as a zone. It was really nice. There wasn't a single person there, and it was super flat and the water was cool. We also saw a dead seal chillin' on the shore, so there's that.
There are gonna be local elections in two weeks, so there have been all these tiny Peruvians marching through the streets with weird mountain music blaring out of megaphones and marching bands that can't play. We're also going to have to not have church October 5th because of the elections. So we just chill in our house all day. Double P-day sounds good to me. . . .
I really miss American food. I'm almost all out of my snacks so hopefully I have a package tomorrow.
Our hot water broke and supposedly got fixed but it still doesn't work. So, we'll have cold showers for the foreseeable future. . . .
People also like to wear clothes with English stuff on it. There was an old lady herding sheep yesterday wearing a beige jacket that said, "Sexy." And we talked to one guy who was wearing a Cal hat and another who was wearing a Cabela's hat. There's no chance that any of these people have any idea what their clothes say. But I digress . . .
I just checked the mission's blog and found this picture of Zac and his whole zone, Zona Viru. There are 11 zones in the Trujillo mission. Apparently, Elder Uceda from the Quorum of the Seventy visited the mission this week and met with all of the zones. Elder Uceda and his wife, who both served missions in the mission years ago, are sitting in the front center. Zac's mission president, President Marler, and his wife are on the front row on the left.
