i'm about to brag about chile. :)

But fiiiiiirst SHAUNA CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING THE FIRST ONE TO GET MARRIED IN THE FAMILY WHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS HOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT IS POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahahaha i was beginning to think our family was cursed or something hahahaha. Nice and you are officially moving out that is cool. Hahaha i am just so blown away that all of that is happening. Craaaazy.

Oh yeah and as far as Thanksgiving goes i guess it didn´t happen hahaha or doesn´t exist here because i didn´t really know or think about it till i read your email. So i guess im a little sad i didn´t get to have a gigantic meal :( but nevermind haha.

About my package..... it was great!!!! But something happened to the music player i was joyously listening to cumorah´s hill for like 30 seconds and it just stopped. i don´t know what happened but i can´t get it to work. it must have gotten fried or something?? im not sure.... but i went and got a battery for the other spot for energy and it didn´t work either..... so :( i am sad. but iv almost ate all the food and candy youv sent already!! THANK YOU!!!

its really weird to think its starting to snow and stuff. by the way you should let me know how the winter is this year as far as quantity. but here its starting to get pretty hot right now and im starting to get really tan and my hair might start turning super blonde again so i´ll be the ultimate gringo hahah!!! but yeah thank you for the sweaters and stuff i am using them when i need too and stuff.

haha ok now i want to talk about fresia where i am. i am pretty far south like 3rd zone in the mission? the puerto varas area. but fresia is sooooo great haha. everyone tells me its a bad area but i LOVE IT hahaha. like oh my heck i have a huge grin on my face right now. the people here are awesome. i love them. its such a farm town hahaha like my comp says this is the most farmiest farm town hes been to. like people ride around on horse in these buggies or like a horse with a trailer or something attached to it around town. and the people here are workhorses!!! HOLY COW! like i wish the united states was more like this. they start a road and finish it in like 2 or 3 days!!!!! its nuts!!! they go to town on things!!!! they make everything here! they heat their houses with wood or gas which they have to chop themselves and burn or refill the gas and they just kick butt!!!! but this town is so small i love it. you know its small when you can walk down the middle of mainstreet every day haha. its super fun here i love it. always girls are hooting and yelling at us when we walk by its soooo funny i guess they love americans or something. or people try to speak english to us to be funny all of this is soooo funny. hahahaha. and almost everyone is catholic and evangelico hahaha. there is this big catholic church that is huge and everyone knows about. I cant wait to see another spire in the sky when our church gets built. i guess were gonna have a new one in like 3 or 4 months??!! maybe ill be here to see it!!!!!

alright so things that happened this week. im getting everything figured out with the branch presidency. its really hard to meet our goals do interviews, assign talks, worry about the members, worry about all the less actives, and worry about investigators and finding people. and a bunch of other stuff. but luckily i am organizing all of this pretty good i think and things are improving. apparently there are like 145 members here!!!!! i dont know how its possible!! consistently in church we have like 20 maybe. so we have a lot of work to do.

OH and i started the book of mormon again. I am totally in the zone with reading again. im at jarom already hahahaha. also i am reading the book of mormon with less active youth. like there is this kid cristian who is just soooo cool. i dont even know why i think that but he said hes just read 1st and 2nd nefi like a bunch. so we started at jacob this week. we read a chapter or 2 for every lesson we have with him. the last on we had he was like "holy cow this is like exactly how it is today in the world etc.." and hahaha ya i am just sooooooo happy. i lllllloooooveee the book of mormon. i love 2nd nefi but for your first time reading it i might just skip some parts hahaha or the whole thing. the story really picks up at jacob.

and for christmas i have no idea what i want hahaha..... ummm lots of food? or maybe like a portable dvd player apparently those are good to watch like the church movies for investigators on and play music also so two birds with one stone!!! and of course more music. lots of motab. that would be cool if you could get some music of youtube. like piano songs. like there is this one piano version of the halo song on youtube that is really cool. or like some chrono trigger music. or there is one song by switchfoot iv been thinking id want the "are you who you want to be one" ? ya kind of interesting but i feel like it applies to me right now and motivates me and would be good hahaha i feel embarrased telling you these songs i want.... umm maybe i feel good the michael buble song? the rule on music here is as long as it uplifts you and doesnt have romantic overtones. all of these songs make me feel pretty good or motivated so that is why. dont think i am evil!!!! they all have meaning!!!!!!!

so funny story hahaha this was sooo cool. we taught like 20 kid in the middle of the street no joke. it just started out with one of our investigators margarita whois like 15? but then one friend came and another and another and before you knew it we had like 20 kids just sitting reverently in the street listening to us teach! haha i have a huge grin on my face right now. it like reminded me of jesus teaching all the little children. its so fun because we like ask questions and they all answer and stuff. hahaha but we taught them how to pray and be nice to people it was great. its so fun talking with the little kids it still blows my mind how everything here is just spanish you know? like yesterday i was thinking during our meeting with the former branch pres and i just got hit with culture shock all at once like I AM IN CHILE SPEAKING SPANISH AND THE ONLY PERSON WHO DOESNT SPEAK ONLY SPANISH IS MY COMP. and also like holy cow there are no american candy bars and a &ws or walmarts around here. hahaha. sometimes this happens and im like wow i am on my mission holy cow!!! haha stuff like that. but i love speaking spanish and understanding it and learnign the rules of it hahaha am i weird??? its sooooo fun!! and its crazy because IVE LEARNED SOOOOOO MUCH ABOUT LIFE IN JUST 3 MONTHS.... it blows my mind how much more i will learn!!!!!!!!!!

some things that are frusturating. there is this kid Luis. he is 15. he is incredible. his dad drinks a lot and his family doesnt have religion. wev had a couple of lessons with him and he is reading the book of mormon and the pamphlets and we taught him how to pray and he is praying and he knows its true and we want him to be baptized. BUT his dad is a little crazy and doesnt want us to come around and teach him anymore or baptize or anything...... soooooo yeah. that is frusturating..... i feel so terrible.... its makes me really sad. because he needs help. he wants to set an example for his family. he needs help with his life but we cant. just wow... and jose and another investigator whos been great doesnt have work and starting the lose faith he´ll get a job.

BUT FOR all of this i have the scriptures for help. when i was reading as couple days ago in 2 Nefi 4:15-35.... YEAH THAT CHAPTER IS GOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!! and i was reading in enos today. ALSO SUUUUPER GOOOD!!!!!!!!!! but in reality the whole book of mormon is good hahaha so i can´t say anything specific cause its all amazing.

but im learning thinks dont always work out the way you planned. they never do and so you just have to trust the lord and follow the spirit and miracles always happen. there is a reason for everything. try to see the good in every situation. i am pretty used to people not being home but i dont just give up. we pray and make something happen. thats why i like this chapter in second nefi. quit feeling sorry for yourself. count your blessings. whenever i feel bad for myself i slap myself in the face and think of all of the people in the world who are perishing in darkness. who don´t know where to turn. who don´t know what is right or wrong or what to believe. we are the light in the darkness. the streetlamp in the dark alley. so if you are having a hard time right with something PRAY READ THE SCRIPTURES and count your blessings. read the lyrics in the song. it is like a formula for problems hahahaha. i know that things happen, but are you going to sit and wallow in despair and feel bad for yourself???? or "awake my soul!!!!!!!!!" you can choose the see the good in things or the bad. life is what you make of it. all of the people here live in really tiny houses. but they have houses. they have food. they are happy. BE HAPPY!!! HAVE A GOOD ATTITUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahaha these are things i have realized!!!! buuuut yah. time to go i think.ç

elina i´ll be waiting i haven´t gotten it yet!!


kelli your teeth look super great!!!! congratulations!!! DANG!!!

holy cow i don't know where to begin!

Mon 11/15/10 8:41 AM
Ok i have learned a lot this week. Wow its amazing. This letter looks pretty daunting right. I just realized that. But it is good!

First. Scott I don´t know if you died or something but i sent you a letter. So i hope you get it!!! And tell me how snowboarding is and stuff.
And Kenna I found something better then peanut butter sandwiches and chocolate milk. Peanut butter and hot chocolate mmmm.... :). So good. Try it. Its amazing!
Oh and mom im very happy that you got those cards. Just so you know we are in the osorno area right and we can see the 3 volcanoes all day. So cool. WE went over there and took a bunch of photos of waterfalls i will be sending pictures.

I notice my english is detoriating really badly. Like my grammer is becoming terrible i feel like. Its kind of sad. I´m in this weird medium right now of were I feel like i can´t really express myself quite all of the way in spanish yet and i´m losing the same ability in english. Hahaha it is really interesting. Sounds good when im writing here but i have more time to think about what im going to say before I say it.

As far as the branch goes here its not very big hahahaha. This week there were like ten people in church. 3 investigators. Hahaha. But ya its great.

As of now I´m learning so much about the spirit. Following the spirit. Gifts of the spirit. It´s really incredible.

Hahaha i had to give a talk in sacrament this week. Was pretty sweet. I talked about charity because that is what a lot of people here have issues with. The members aren´t super nice all the time and I guess they push a lot of people away from coming to church. Like I´m pretty sure my talk was really forward and bold because my spanish is not perfect so i can´t exactly beat around the push. But thus is the word of god in 1 Ne towards the end. I don´t have my scriptures on me. But super sharp and bold and dividing.

Oh I had my first bible bashing experience hahaha. It was great and soooo funny. Well how it started was so there was a group of guys talking who were probably a little drunk or rough right but I´m thinking ya I´m not afraid of anybody or whatever why should i be and go and talk to these guys. Turns our they are actually really receptive and we have an appointment with them the next day. This guy Samuel just went off hahahaha. Talking and talking about the Bible and how its the only true book and how he doesn´t believe Joseph Smith was perfect and he had to be perfect and al of this stuff. Haha ya i was just like I dont understand sorry but blahblahblah hahaha he was really frusturated. Good stuff.

I have no idea how but spanish is coming really really really fast. Its the gift of tongues. Its not nothing else. I pray for it everyday and it is ridiculous. I guess the US Gov asked
the MTC about how missionaries learn languages so fast because normally it takes people a year or 2. But I can almost say and understand everything I need to hahaha!! Ok
ok I still have a ton to learn but I can comfortably get around and talk with people. The hardest part is people hear talk SOOOO fast. Its crazy. And the crazy part is I can understand and I guess I talk that fast too when I get going. Hahahaha ya. It is CRAZY.

Another thing I realize is amazing is following the spirit. I have absolutely no idea how this works or how to explain but it is incredible. Of course we plan for the day, almost every moment but it´s important to be flexible with everything you do and to not be afraid to drift away from your plans. Its soooooooo crazy. There is no other possible explanation for a series of incredible COINCIDENCES in a day. Hahaha it really is crazy. It´s like hmmm i feel like we should do this. No its not important. Ok maybe we should. I feel like we should. So we do so skeptically and something crazy happens. Like deciding to walk on a street down (which is not normal cause where we are going is on the original street) but then we run into someone having a lot of problems one of our investigaors. Little things like this all day long. I know its so hard to explain but I know the definition of following the spirit now haha.

I made french fries last night for the first time. Everyone in Chile uses oil for like everything. I dont know how but they do. But ya i was pretty proud of myself. I mostly just eat cereal here Chocapic, and pasta every day and night, and hot chocolate. So ya if you sent recipes or something on how to eat that would rock... hahaha.

I´m excited for th package. I think i have to wait until the next big meeting until I actually get it but apparently it is somewhere around here in Chile.

As far as investigators go umm... i dont know where to start. It is really hard to talk about all of these things. We have asked like 7 people to be baptized and 6 have accepted but of course we have to teach them and prepare them and get them to church. There is Camila, Sara, Marcello, Anamaria, Rudy, Damian, Marlen... and more maybe I think but i can´t remember. But the biggest problem here is inactive members. Apparently there are like 120 something members in Fresia. I found this out yesterday and was like WHAT??!!! I DONT BELIEVE IT. So we have some work to do with building the church again and helping people to feel what they felt when they joined again and why they are a member.

I´ve had to give many many blessings lately. I have no idea why. Its crazy. But one guy was on fire and Elder Urias and Elder Bluth put him out right before I got here. He had burns really bad all over his body but like 2 weeks ago he was already better after the blessing. This guy Oscar we are teaching right now was hit by a bus and totally injured bad bad bad and lost all movement of the left side of his body but after we gave him a blessings like 2 days after he is up and walking again and working his left side to be better. So ya miracles. I had to give a blessing to a member who was about to die. It was really intense. I feel really bad because she ended up dying but in the blessing i told her she had the promise of the celestial kingdom.... Pretty big promise but that is what i felt and i wont deny that. Rosita died and the rest of her sons and daughters are like Jehovahs witness, Evangelicos, Catolicos, and others. So we´ve had to talk a lot about that and deal with a LOT of things with funerals and blessing the grave and stuff. There is a lot of stuff to deal with as the presidency.

Sometimes i feel like im a life counselor or something. Im learning so much about life. How hard it is for people. How lost some people are. People come to us with all of their problems. Marriage, death, problems in the family... everything. Sometimes well all the time i think who am i so young to tell YOU who has like way more years of life then me to do. Its kind of mind blowing because the words that are put in my mouth to say are exactly what i need to say and they need to hear. Everytime. I dont even know haha. Its great. Its really humbling.

I cannot say the least of how i feel being here. It´s just amazing. I know i may make it sound like a dream world. There is a lot of hard work. A lot of walking. A lot of rejection. But "nothings more important than the attitude!" haha i think thats the quote in bandito but really ya it is the key. And I just so happen to usually see the bright side of things so good for us right!!! I´m doing great here. I´d like to hear from friends a little more...SCOTT and JAMES maybe you know haha but its good. There is a lot happening its kind of hard to explain it all on paper. We´re kicking but I guess. My new comp is kind of weird a little. Just really interesting. Like i love of him he just does these weird litle things. But im constantly changing my point of view. Changing is hard but its great.

Anyways yeah! I wouldn´t be doing anything else with my life right now!!!!! I get the study the gospel everyday for like 3 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who gets to do that everyday!!! THis is the best thing I will get to do in my life!!!!!! After this it will be crappy work and super hard making money focus on life for the rest of my life. You know what im saying right??? Oh well. I cannot describe how satisfied i am being here. This is the greatest opportunity i have in my life ever. Sometimes i get frusturated but then i just remind myself of that and im grateful. Thank you mom and dad and everyone who has helped pay for this because i LOVE IT. My life will be infinitiely better and more succesful.

WOW. Ok well I have no idea what else to say. I´m sure the second I get off the internet i will think of something I wished I had said. I´m going to buy a sweet Chile jersey now! Umm... yes.

Chaito familia and friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

• Branch Pres, Piano Teacher, Missionary Work..... wow i am stressed X)‏
Mon 11/08/10 12:28 PM

random thought. everyone here thinks i look like clark kent. its really weird. like they say clark and point at me hahahaha. i think its funny cause its my middle name. i guess i look like superman how i walk or something. hahaha ya random.

SEND MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!!!! ok i want music!!! i want it sooooo bad!!!!!!!!!!!!! MOTAB, CUMORAHSHILL, halo song on the piano on youtube, any song i like that is only the piano, disney songs are all allowed, anythign you think i would like send it!!!!!!!!!! i just want to listen to a ton of great music!!! wow i love music!!! sheet music anything!!! crono trigger music!!! soundtracks from movies you like just i want it!!!!!!!!! i probably sound crazy right now haha but i do.!

ok mom first seriously the sd card broke??? i am really sad about that... there are a lot of good photos on there :(. and i just sent one in a letter to matthew so i hope its not broken because it has a lot of good photos on it also..... ugh... i am stressed about that now. but good job kelli! that is awesome you probably got one of those cool necklaces too right? ya a girl here in the little fresia chapel got hers it was sweet hahaha it is always good to see the youth in the church growing. good job kelli!! i wish i wouldv gotten more into church stuff like that when i was younger haha but they are coming out with cool new strength for youth stuff its awesome!!!

oh and as far as photos they should be all on facebook just look around i guess mom!!

ok so this past week has been CRAZY. where to begin.....ok so you know elder urias right my comp?? well he just got transferred an emergency transfer. its nuts!!!! like i dont know how to explain all of this. but its because the branch president of the branch is leaving and a different elder galovic came to replace elder urias to take that spot! soooo crazy!! so now he is the branch president a member hermano luis is the 1st counselor and i am 2nd counselor. i guess we dont need to be set apart cause we are missionaries and we have keys for our area maybe already?? im not sure... but it is really stressful what we have to do now. i have no idea how to organize it. like there is a TON of stuff we have to do now. i have to do all of the tithing stuff, and organize activities, and strengthen the church and youth, and be an example, and be a leader, and allllllll of these things!!!!!!!!!!!!!! like the branch pres was explaining to us all the things what to do and i just got a big headache. in spanish of course..... and wow it is nuts. this will be a big growing experience for me and very stressful.. holy cow.

so ya so the next day after this these two higher up senior missionaries came to our ward, and i guess the lady is like the music coordinator person and she makes sure everyone is doing music good. well she is getting us a new piano!!!!!!!!!! and we get the old one in our room!!!!!!! wooo hoo!!!!!!!!! but she told me i have to be the music teacher of everyone in the ward and teach how to learn music and lead and sing because i can play the piano and i have a lot of experience. i guess i have to teach people how to play the piano too.


so ya. yes i am very stressed out. i really have to plan things to a T so things get done around here with everything. its nuts. holy cow. so ya.

any suggestions hahaha ya. i dont know. im going crazy. i feel like people expect so much of me but iv only been here for like a month maybe like everyone just assumes cause i can speak ok i can understand and converse and do all of these things but its really hard. like the book i have to study to be 2nd counselor is all in spanish :(.... by the time i finish reading it i may have to leave for a new area. well but i guess this is all very good for my growth spiritually mentally and becoming more mature. but wow for how long iv been here i am a little stressed. but that is what praying is for right?? hahaha i can help from above. that is the only way any of this will be possible.

ok i will try to answer all of the questions. umm so i am in fresia right now. its a really small town hahaha. to give you idea there is a lot of barbwire haha around our church too and a ton of dogs it is all dirt roads for the most part and everything is real small. supposedly it has had a rep for being a bad area or something but we are doing really well with it!!! my comps elder urias first was crazy!!! i almost died with him hahaha it was fun. really really stressful because he was like a kid sort of. i had to fall back on all of my mtc training thank you teachers!!! hahaha but i am grateful for the experience because i am really independent and have figured out what i need to do so i have a good understanding for myself not just a trainer telling me everything cause he didn´t tell me much hahaha.

elder galovic now is great. very quiet. very not crazy. knows what we need to do. its nice. i appreciate him very much. i appreciate elder himes a lot more now too.

oh real quick. i accidently threw away elder urias´'s retainer. i was cleaning things because its messy. my stuff is clean. but ya lots of stuff laying around and im cleaning and im pretty sure i threw it in the toilet and flushed it because apparently it was rapped in toilet paper. there were a lot of those laying around from blown noses. so ya he may expect me to pay for part of it or even all of it which is pretty expensive. im sorry if he does but he was pretty bitter about it. it was a complete accident. i just went on a crazy cleaning spree and i was like CLEAN!!!! so ya thats that.

i love fresia. people talk bad about it sometimes but i LOVE IT. i have a good relationship with the members and investigators its really humbling my spanish grammar is bad and they help me. hahaha. we live farthest out from everyone. its just us 2. alone. an hour to all of our meetings. i guess we are going to some big televised conference leadership meeting of the church. i think there may be a apostle speaking maybe!!!

but i started the bom again. i am reading Jesus the Christ. thank you matthew!! its really good! the words are sort of rediculous but its good i like it! im also reading the new testament cause iv never read that.

i realized the other day that its not just investigators to convert here but to BUILD the church!!! i want to have everyone active and force them to get a new building!!!! these member deserve it!!!! hahaha

today we went to this really cool place with waterfalls for pday. usually there is an activity but when there isnt we just clean study get things done. i havent bought a shirt yet and the package hasnt come yet but i will today.

thats sad about bishop bennion i will definitely write him when i get some time :). there is so much time in the day but i feel like i have none because i plan everything out. like holy cow time flies. i have no idea how to explain it. but i love being here. best choice of my life. i hope anyone thinking about going just goes on a mission.... scott, james!!! do it!!! i feel so much closer to everything. its incredible. never in my life will i have this opportunity to be this close to my heavenly father and the savior. i see it everyday. i study it everyday. i live it everyday. i love it everyday. it is building me and shaping be. i am changing so much to adjust and it hurts. like an analogy the lord is molding be and sanding me to make me smooth and perfect. it hurts, its hard, but i know its for my good and it will work out in the end. i stress alot about not talking and teaching enough people. today was good for me to see the beauty of the world and imagine the savior creating all of this beauty.

i dont know. its great.i love it here. i love seeing everyone from my district every once in a while. i hope i get that package soon!!! and i expect everyone to write me back i sent a letter too even though it will probably take a while to get there....... like 2 or 3 weeks i think... but ya!!! i love you all!!! this church is true and joseph smith was a prophet!!!! the commandments are for your happiness live them be anxiously engaged in a good cause..... and SHARE THE GOSPEL!!!!!!!!

cha-i-to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! y con amor!!!!!!!!!!

Stay on your side!

HOla familia and friends!!!!!!!!!!!!! Como estan!! hahaha. Ok iv been pretty stressed with the work load and everything this week and reading your letters really just took all of it away. thats so nice right??? hahaha

ok where to begin holy cow. haha kenna i got jeremýs addressaid is it exactly right hahaha you are already a genius with missionary work already. is great what you did. but it will still probably be really hard but keep doing it. and holy cow shauna it is pretty crazy you are marrying seth finally!!!! nuts!! send me a picture of carboard version of me. please!!! i sent matthew a letter and scott too!!! erin im sorry about the howl not going good dont be stressed about it. just have fun and dont stress about it.

i will try my wer all of your questions but i will reference you to 1 nephi 6:2 through 6. i will try to answer your questions but i mostly just want to share spiritual things hahahaha!!! ok but your questions i cant remember cause theyr not in front of me. so ok we are doing the best in the zone right now. or the district. i dont know. but our goal is for 30 a week with lessons, 10 new invest a week, 5 new dates for baptism a week, and a bunch of other numbers that dont really matter. but the people are so awesome!!! hahaha i have so many stories!!!! but we got like 24 this week with terrible planning. i broke it down what we need to do every day so we can focus on what we need to do. because the numbers help guide you what to do in your day and when have all of 1 thing done then you focus on the next. so i broke it down such simpler and much easier to meet our goals. im excited for next week hahahaha.

ok funny story. our branch president. president payan is just soooooo funny. like he is totally normal, but i think he is hilarious. he has to ave us walk him home every night he comes with us to teach and it is way far away. but he walks in the middle of us like we are his soldiers or bodyguards. but ya funny story in sacrament, hahaha oh my heck. so i play the piano for church now haha but he talked forever in his talk like he went over a lot. crazy. and near the end he told to play i believe in christ WHILE he was talking. hahaha oh my heck it was hilarious he was totally serious it was like a sermon and i was playing the piano and he was talking really loud cause we have no microphone. i dont think its allowed but hahaha oh my heck. people here are so funny.

ok now something really cool. oh im reading the bom again cause it rocks. i was sitting downstairs against the wall playing with my oil. some got on my hands and i was thinking why olive oil. then boom it hit me revelation!! hahaha but seriously this was sooooooo cool. ok so think about this. why we us olive oil to heal the sick and give blessings. it is very symbolic. very very. olive trees grow in the garden of getsemane right? and from what the picture shows christ prays on the tree... i dont know how to explain that. but its very closely related to the atonement. because how you make olive oil is you have to squeeze them really hard with a ton of pressure. a ton. and that is symbolic of christ the pressure heook that made him bleed from every pore. i dont even know how to put this into words... wow. hink about it. but that is why there are so many miracles that come from lessings. because of the power of the atonement and how closely related the symbolism of olive oil is to the atonement. annointing is used for so many things because christs atonement is the center of everything. ya i want you all to think about that. was really cool for me.

also. i miss american food. be soo grateful for everything you have. the people here are very humble. i miss american food, a nice hot shower, the food here tastes really different. its crazy. i haent had anything i am crazy about. but i love it. i will send some pictures you will see. its nuts. but be grateful for everything. i looked through pictures of our house and i was blown away by how nice it is in comparison to here.

so count your blessings. so many cool things are happening. be grateful for your knowlege of this gospel. tty for church. but they really believe that because thats all they have. trhats where i come in. i miss so much but i need to be here. i want motab cds!!!!! please!!!!!! i have nothing!!!! music wise!!! i want to get a chilean soccer jerase is it ok hahaha please. i miss american food. haha. i gotta go but hopefully i have more time later today. we were late i cause i had to wait for elder urias. i thought i was slow. but now i am either the fastest missionary aliv he is just real slow. i dont know. i et frusturated haha but its good.

ok chao chao everyone!!
