We had two earthquakes and the dam broke, other than that just a normal week

This week was a good one. We have good investigators that can get baptized, but they are all going on vacations, so we have to wait a little while. But the work has been good and I get along really well with my comp. He is a little awkward, he said he was really shy before the mission, like it was hard for him to talk to people, but he’s getting better. It’s been fun. This Thursday we have conference with the president, I’m stoked. But that’s about all that is new... we are just working. Finding people and trying to get them to church.

Oh yeah, we had two earth quakes this week but they were just small ones. Its weird everyone here is just super used to it, its like oh another one... cool, haha, I like them. Then, the dam where our city gets water broke... so everyone thought we would have to evacuate, but they’re using the reserves right now. Kinda was crazy our branch President was freaking out and took his family and left, ha was kinda weird. Other than that, just been a normal week.

Wow, I’m jealous. I want to go to the temple so bad. It would be cool to have one in our mission. People freak when I tell them I can see three temples from my house. Here you have to go on an 18 bus ride. Or fly. That’s awesome, how did Hayden like it? I’m so stoked for him. And tell Tyler I say congrats if he’s still there. Awesome about work, that would be way cool if you taught! Is Kaleb getting done with his papers? I'm still looking for shoes, if I can’t find any I'll let you know.

LOve you guys,

So, my shoes got jacked!

Yeah, it is really crazy that I’m almost at a year, I can’t believe how fast it’s going, At the end of this transfer I’ll have 9 months... Crazy.

The president has talked about all the new missionaries that will be coming out this summer. He had all of us write and say if we could have more missionaries in our sectors. I think we will be getting a lot here. I haven’t heard about the MTC in Mexico, but that sounds awesome. I can’t wait till I know where Kaleb is going. It’s gonna be sweet when he comes to my same mission, hahaha, I wish.

Whoa ton of stuff is happening. Hayden is gonnabe a good missionary. Tell Greg I'm learning a little Portuguese. I have a book of Mormon in porteguese.

I like that book (Stand a little taller) they have one in the presidents office. Oh and the 22 year old left. TONS of people have left our town, it’s only a town to work, and so when they have there long breaks they leave, like him. But we have a few other good people.

So, my shoes got jacked! I’m so mad, I loved them. But hey, I might have you send me a package with new shoes.... but I will try to buy them. They sell crappy cheap shoes here for super expensive. But I’ll let you know next week if I haven’t found any.

I love you guys and miss you everyday.
I have dreams about you and dad like almost every night. Ha

Love you!

...hey, we're doing good.

Sounds like a good week. I can’t believe Megan’s thirteen, I’m not going to recognize her when I get home! You’ll have to tell me how the youth conference goes, it sounds awesome. I tried explaining that to my comp and he said they don’t do stuff like that in Uruguay and especially not in Chile. Its cool we are able to. But I’m glad you had a good week!
This week was good, kinda tough. I’m getting a little frustrated with people going on vacation so much. It’s a mining town so everyone’s like "yeah come visit me in March when I’m back from vacation..." Ha. But we have a good family we found. There’s four of them and only the dad is a member, but hadn’t gone for 4 years or so. But they went last week and his daughter (who isn’t a member) knew all the answer about Joseph Smith in Sunday school. I was like, hey we’re doing good. We just need to keep getting her to pray because she says she cant stop being catholic, but has come to church twice and likes it... so yeah.
Also this week we had our interview with the president. He’s awesome. He gave me advice on how to help Catholics or other religions change. I’m learning a lot about like problem solving and stuff. It’s cool. That’s about it thought, nothing new just working. But hey I got to write some people but thanks for the update, keep it up love you guys take care!
Con amor,
