My first week

Hello everyone.

I am going to apologize right now about not having any pictures. I have been super busy with learning and studying lately. I would like everyone to know that I am doing just fine and am having a blast here in Peru. I do want to testify that the gift of tongues is real and that my Spanish is light years ahead of what I had before and it has only been a week. We have investigators that we teach everyday that are actually just our teachers acting as people they met on their missions. It has been super cool. I would also like to let everyone know that I am now the toast record holder at the MTC in Lima with twenty pieces of toast with butter eaten in one sitting. I miss you guys but it has been a ton of fun.


Well I leave for the wonderful country of Peru today. My family is taking me to the airport today and seeing me off. I turned my phone in last night before I got set apart, meaning I officially become a missionary and have to follow all mission rules, and so I have not responded to a lot of texts or snapchats and whatnot. Anyway here I go; the next post will be next Monday so I will have a full week to report. Thanks to everyone who has helped me get this far. Adios.

Farewell Information

With only thirty seven days left things are getting a little crazy. For those who would like to I am having a farewell at church on June 11 the last Sunday before I leave. That night I am also having a farewell “party” at my house. It might only be some food and then a few games or whatnot. If you would like the information text me or DM me if you found this on my instagram. Things are starting to wind down and it is a little weird. Stay cool people.

First Blog Post

Well everyone welcome to Elder Westergard’s Blog! This is where I plan on trying to write about my week on my Preparation Day (Monday) when I leave. I should be able to update on the events of the week and try and upload a few pictures. Thanks everyone for the love and support as I move forward to shipping out to Lima in June.

I will probably not keep this updated until I am in Piura and have the set time on my P-day to write a little bit about my experiences during the week. But after June 19 feel free to check up on it during the week and see how Peru is going! Thanks Everyone!
