Leaving Caraz -October 6, 2014

Dear all,
Buenos tardes. How are you all doing? I have just found out I am leaving Caraz and my daughter, Hermana Castillo. By referring to her as my daughter, it means that I had the priviledge of training her, but I believe I have learned so much more from her than she from me. I am thankful for her, because we have worked hard together and have walked miles and miles and miles together. We have laughed together, cried together, prayed together, worked hard together, and have even been really sick together. We have worked hard to help the people of Caraz..actually it really isn't that had to love the people of Peru and Caraz. We are 10 hours from Lima and we traveled here overnight by bus. The buses range from really nice with seats that recline and allow us to sleep in comfort, to buses that are okay. The roads up to here are very steep and can be dangerous, but we are being protected as we travel. I had to travel 8 hours to get to Chancay, my very first area, and we passed that by over 2 hours. We are in the northern most part of the mission and this area reminds me of Cache Valley. Mom asked me how much we walk daily and it is close to 10 miles. I used to have trouble doing hikes back home, but have had the opportunity to walk alot and will enjoy it when I get back home.
I do not have a lot of time, because I have got to pack but know that I love and miss you all, but I am where I am supposed to be. Our Savior lives and loves us all. Read your scriptures. They are true.
Con mucho amor,
Hermana Hyer
