Week #44

Week 13 in Valle Azapa!!! ¡¡VIVA CHILE!! ¡18!

Well this past week was super hectic and just super great all in one!!!! Tuesday we left around midnight in a bus to go to a special conference in Antofagasta so that was around a 12 hour ride (there and back)! We were there all day wendsday and it was awesome seeing so many other missionary friends from around our mission!! Also the uplifting messages and meeting a Seventy(always a great experience)!! Something cool and funny is that my two old companions, Elder Ruiz and Mendoza, are both companion right now and are here in Arica!! ( It made the bus ride alot funner!!) So after this conference we made it back here to Arica again Thursday where we basically recovered but still worked!
SO for those that don´t know, the 18th of September is pretty much the 4th of July for Chile. Also the chilenos like to extend there festivites so basically Friday until today it has been pure barbques and fiestas!!!! I cannot describe how much I have eaten the past few days and the amount of food that is in our fridge... but there ain´t no one complaining about that ;) So really the past week was extremly hard to get in some good missionary work but not to get your stomach filled. But this week we´ll be putting in some big work as I really got about 5 weeks left here in Valle Azapa (...I think...) I hope you´re all well and next week I´ll try and share a cool teaching experience!!!!
Con Amor,

"The gospel of Jesus Christ challenges us to change. “Repent” is its most frequent message, and repenting means giving up all of our practices—personal, family, ethnic, and national—that are contrary to the commandments of God. The purpose of the gospel is to transform common creatures into celestial citizens, and that requires change"
