Jake has a new companion for a few weeks. He's actually in a 3 person companionship. The newest Elder in an Oatovaleno. A Native Indian from Northern Peru. They are a culture that the Church allows to maintain a lot of their native attire. They never cut their hair from birth. The men wear a long braid down their back. They also are allowed to wear traditional footwear, white pants and as Jake calls it "Al Capone" hats. While being known as very serious and quiet-they are still just 19 year old young men. They are all a bunch of funny boys!
It's great to know he is having such a cool time learning how people are people no matter where they are born or what culture they are born. Or as his letter said today. "I try to be homies with everyone."
