Hey Family hows it going! it sounds like you have a fun week. my week was great. and i am supper excited to be able to stay in this area and work with the same comp. it was a lot of fun this week because i had this traning thing at the mission home, for all the people in my group that came in on the same day. it was awesome to be able to see the people from my district that i came here with, and to see my comp from the MTC. anyway bree i got you email, and i loved hearing from you and hope you are doing great, i think about you and chad alot, when i see our investigators the same age, and am so so grateful that we grew up in the gospel and have this opportunity, lifes tough but stay strong and perserverar hasta el fin or endure to the end and i just want you to know that i know that this is the only way to find true lasting happiness. sorry went of on a tangent, didnt mean to get all preachy, but well... thats my life. halloween was interesting. i think most people here use it as an opportunity to get drunk, but they do, do that whole trick or treating thing its just not as big as in the states. the kid that got baptized last week, his name is Abraham, and is full of energy. kind of crazy actually. he has a bro and sister who are members but only the sister is active. we are working with his mom and other sister right now who would get baptized if they would get married, but they wont because they say it causes to many problems, which is really the other way around, pero no sé. its a cool story with Abraham though, well kind of sad also. but the mom and a little girl that lives there, on saturday night before the baptism there was a big gang fight outside their house ( that the one inactive bro. was a part of) and the little girl ran out into it to get to the brother of abraham, so the mom ran out to get her and got hit with a glass bottle and a piece hit the girl as well, the moms eye was messed up pretty bad, anyway long story short, she will be fine some scars is all, but when we went to go pick up abraham on sunday morning we found out about all this and said that we could do the baptism another day, because the mom was going to go into santiago to go to the doctors, but the whole family realized the importance of it and wanted him to go get baptized that day, and made arangements for it to work out, i am really greatfull for that family and the faith that they have. well the weather is getting hot now but i heard in the area i am in it will get a lot hotter, reminds me of home.
i would also like to say thanks to jessie and kevin for their letters, i got them all this last tuesday,and it was great to have them, and read them on the bus ride home. well have a great week and i love you all!
