well......i cant promise about the whole writing in my journal thing, but i am going to start again! :) well just to set the everyone straight, i will always be able to beat Chad up. its called older brother powers. you cant top it! it sounds like things are a little crazy for you guys right now. for me too. things have been crazy. we had a interesting weekend. An Elder in my district is in the hospital so i had to do like three spiritually draining interviews for baptisms. and I had to personally be sent over to put a branch presidente, the branch were the other Elderes in my district are at, in his place because he was doing things that were complete apostasy. he had a lot of pride and great was his fall when our mission president had to call and meet with him. the fun things that go on in the mission. I'm sure dad can relate and Kevin too. needless to say I'm really tired. well that was my week. i love the mission and i have really come to know of what Ammon was talking about in Alma 26:12, especially the first part. i love you guys and am very thankful for everything you have done for me.

Thank you so much for your emails, it sounds like you all are having a great time. we are having a great time here in the mission. On saturday we had a devotional in our mission.. one of the best that i have had. Elder Amado of the seventy, and Elder Kosta of the presidency of the seventy were there. i learned a lot of things and i know that we will be able to work better as a mission thanks to this conference. in the morning we hiked up a mountain, and i took pictures, so that i could have something to send you guys. its the same one as before but with different people. I'm still in the same area with Elder Garcia. the truth is we are just working hard, trying to do everything we can to find the people that are waiting for us. i love the people here and i love the mission. thank you all so much for your support and for your prayers. don't forget to pray for the people here in Chile.

Hey hows it going!! its great to hear from you, sorry the emails have been a little short. but we have been really busy. there are a lot of things that are changing in our mission. with the way we teach, how we work and basically everything. but it all comes from the prophet and is going to help our mission a lot. but we have had conferences and trainings like loco. we are teaching a few people, but things are a little slow with people progressing. but we are working harder than ever, and the animo(i cant remember what its called in english) is higher than ever. i don't really have much to report, and sorry i haven't been taking many pictures. but i will get better at that, until then i hope you can forgive me. i love you all and hope you have a great week.

Hey hows it going!!! it sounds like you all have been having a busy time. cant believe that Michael and Nick are coming home, it seems like they just left. well i don't have much to report, the work is moving forward like always. there are a lot of changes in our mission. a lot of my old companions leaving, and a lot of new missionaries arriving. but that's life, full of changes. and that's the thing i love about the plan God has for us, the opportunities it gives us in life, to always be progressing. love you guys sorry this was a little short, talk to you next week.

Hey hows it going? well.... every day in the mision is a great experience. we are just working hard trying to find the people that will progress and trying to fulfill our purpose as missionaries. dont get discouraged!! sometimes people take a detour, believe me i know. what she needs is a friend that will love her unconditionally. try to put yourself in her shoes, its hard to do, because we have grown up in the church all our life. she has just entered a new world with new rules and a new lenguage. its hard to change. i imagine that she is learning how hard it is to be a real diciple of Christ. try and give her a perspective eternal. i know that you can do it, love her and have faith in the spirit. i love you guys and i will talk to you all later.
