Hey, mom!!
 yep, 2 weeks left. but im working until the end so don't worry. on the 11th i get to say goodbye to my converts so i am excited for that. i am glad that Chad had a good time at EFY, what a stud! it sounds like it is hot over there. it is still pretty cold here. it freezes in the morning. we are teaching some great people, and i really do love the people here in Curacaví. i hate it when we have to go into Santiago every week cuz i love the small town feeling. our ward is struggling, we have been working a lot on that- trying to help out the leaders. it is interesting how much the members, and people who are not members depend on the missionaries, and what they have got to say. the other day someone told us that he felt that if the missionaries left Curacaví, the town would be lost. a little dramatic i know, and i laughed a little when he said it. but it does help one feel the weight of their calling.
our new president has invited us to restudy the life and teachings of Christ, and i have loved it. it has really helped me a lot, i have found. and President Essig taught that if one really whats to become like Christ, one must know him. its true and i invite you to do it also. i know you are basically like Christ being my Mom and Dad, but its helped me a lot. i thought i would throw that out there.

Love you guys and cant wait to talk to you guys next week,
Elder Nelson
