Easter in Iquitos April 13, 2009

Happy Easter, Easter is not the same here, they don't really celebrate on Sunday. They celebrate more on Good Friday. We didn't even sing Easter songs in sacrament meeting. It was weird to me.

I didn't get my package but I know that President is coming and might bring it.

Not in a million years did I think I would eat turtle and actually enjoy it. We have been eating a lot of fish and guess what?, I have been enjoying that too. The only thing is that you have to be careful with the spines. I have only tried one fish that I haven't liked. It was good that I was just trying it and it was not what they gave us to eat.

Here in the jungle it is winter. It is the time of rain and heat. In Lima it is summer. That seems weird.

We had a really good week. We had two baptisms and they chose me to baptize them. They are not the strongest converts that I have had, but they wanted to get baptized. We had some really strong spiritual lessons this week and found two jovenes that really want to get baptized. They have been going to church for years. Now they just need permission from their parents.

We also had one lesson that was not so great, it drained me spiritually and I felt like crap.

I became trunky for some reason for the rest of the day. The funny thing is that day was one of our best days number wise.

Monday we went and played volleyball in the rain. It was really fun. We also looked at the different animals that they have . It was a little better than the one in Pucallpa.

Sounds like all is well there and I hope that everything stays that way.
I love you all very much. Cuidense Te Extranohata Luego
Love Much,
Elder Hyde

I loved the pictures of the kids.

Happy (late) Easter Hyde Family! Turtle? so great to hear how Elder Hyde is doing! He is such a great missionary. Hopefully we will get moved back there before his homecoming. (or we will make a trip up there) :) Hope all is well with you guys as well. Thinking of you!
