Hey there... It sounds like you're having a great time... I loved the pictures thank you so much.
Tell Jake and Randy that they don't look like they are happy to be home so they should stop faking it ;)
Vincent is awesome. I love that guy so much.
So it's been a good week. We traveled a lot. We were in Parral and Linares on Tuesday. After that we went out to a little town called Cauquenes to work with the Elders there. Wednesday we were in Talca and on Thursday we were in Curico. We are doing interviews right now - Tuesday there were 18 missionaries, Wednesday 28 missionaries, and 22 missionaries on Thursday. We are going to keep on going this week.
Today my companions and I went to Chiguayante to clean the zone leaders house, then we cleaned our house. I was thinking about it and I am probably living better now then I will in the states. I've got a sweet truck and my apartment is bigger than the one I had at BYU. I have a walk-in closet. I've got framed pictures of Christ and Helaman on my walls. Life is good. Yesterday we taught an Evangelic family in our sector. It was a good lesson. My companions just gave great sweet testimonies and I just taught.  It'll be interesting to see what happens because they go to church today and tomorrow so we can't stop by their house. We were working in a poorer part this week, and there are SO many inactive members there. 15 out of the first 17 people we talked to were members. The problem is that it is very far away from the chapel, it is a long way to walk, and they just don't have money. With us walking very fast it would be about 30 minutes from the church to the neighborhood... like an hour for them.
Please pray for Maria and her family. She is an investigator that has known missionaries since the earthquake. Her husband was baptized years ago, but isn't very strong in the church. Maria is the one that runs the family. She is dark skinned, short, heavy and stubborn... a strong woman. We are trying to help her entire family. She is not a member, nor is her daughter Lesly. We painted their house the other day.
I love you all. Please PLEASE tell the Clark family thank you for the letters and Tie... I want to write back Jax and Addy and Cole and Ellie but I wasn't able to today. This letter is short... there are a lot of people I would like to write, but I can't!!! ha I love you, have a great time.
