So i was in the bathroom like yesterday i believe. I counted. Hahahaha next time you complain about mosquito bites look at this email. I counted and i had 46 bites, all really itchy on my body. Nuts. Yes. The fleas love my fresh young american blood. Bleggh the worst part is i dont see it happen. So now when i sleep at night or in the day also i am paranoid of fleas. hahaha yeah. i cant even describe it.
i dont have too much time today cause this comp is reallly slow and im uploading photos from the waterfalls and volcano osorno. soooo yeah!
about the snow. i miss snow. i miss snowboarding and i miss tricking. SCOTT WHERE ARE YOU!!!!! some kids iv taugh a little bit rueben and daniel THEY TRICK!!!!!!! rueben can do corks and flashkicks and daniel can do btwists and they both can do 540 kicks. hahaha but rueben couldn´t do corks right (he was inverting enough) so i should him how to do them right and they got a lot better. good trust building he then let us have a lesson with them after this :)
but things are going great here in chile!!!! but with that holy cow family where are you??? i feel like i dont know anything that is happening in logan!!!!! just questions about chile!!!!!!!!!!!! haha dont be sad but my comps usually get pretty hefty updates and i feel left in the dark a little haha...
so one cool things is we have two people. rodolfo and marlen. rodolfo is a member and marlen isnt. the problem is theyr not married. rodolfo was inactive. but he had no job. so they´ve been obeying the commandsments like praying reading going to church and living the law of chasity to the best of their ability. and he found a job. and we helped him recognize that was a blessing. now we always sing count your blessings with them. hahahaha but she has a baptismal date and any thing that comes up that is hard they have experience they can fall on so like ¨¨remember how you will be blessed?¨ so ya they rock. he said they will try to get married before christmas :) then we can baptize marlen.
i haven´t gotten those other packages or the sd cards yet.... so i dont know when they will get here... but we will see.
as far as working goes things are great. i realize there is absolutely nothing i can do for anything to happen how i want it. its all up to the lord. but if i do all the things i can do he will bless us with success. all i can do is plan the best i can, try to follow the plans, follow the spirit, and do everything within my power to meet our goals. so ya. its crazy how at the end of the day things will work out but thats the lord!!!! FAITH!!!!
hahahaha super cool this guy Ivon had almost the same dream as lehi hahaha. my mtc teacher hermano crapo told me about having an experience like this but i never thought it´d happen to me!!! well i guess what happened in his dream was he was in a big field. and there were two trees. one he said was bad and tasted bad. and the other one a little ways off was really white and good. and someone told him thats where god lives. and then i guess jesus walked by with a bible in his hand but it wasnt the bible. hahaha i cant even explain it all. but he had like a 1000000 questions. so we´re trying our best to work with him.
haha like everyone here is either catholic or evangelico. its nuts. they dont know much. just always I AM CATHOLIC, or I AM EVANGELICO. its like a reflex response haha. the evangelicos are soooooo funny. like they all play instruments for some reason and walk around with top hats and stop in the middle of streets set up speakers and have like a rock out with some guy preaching hallelujah and there is only one god and HE KNOWS ALL!!!! hahaha ya. good stuff i love thinking about it hahahaha but they are all such great people. we just have to help them out.
i am definitely changing a lot. i walk REALLY fast all the time. i am finally learning to use my legs. without my backpack i feel like i can walk 1000mph!!! its nuts!!! hahaha this probably sounds ridiculous!!! i am turning into a red type erin. like you. i dont know if i am happy or not about that!!! its like BUSINESS GET IT DONE mixed with disciple of christ charity and all of that. but its just because EVERYONE needs to know about his gospel. and i can make better use of time walking faster, studying better, being more effective. yes. thats it hahaha.
the other day i heard jack johnson in the store. it made me really nostalgic. firstly cause what the!! jack johnson in chile!!! (there is a lot of american in chile but like him) but i though of lacrosse, and tannen hahaha yes you tannen!, and cache valley and relaxing. a lot of good feelings but then i just kept walking past where the music was :(. that was a little rough. mike your letter cracked me up congrats on going through the temple!!!!!
as far as the branch goes. we are just like the bishopric. we do everything. so put that in perspective and combine with missionary work... and elder galovic just got made distric leader. sooooo yes. it is nuts!
I LOOOOOOOOOVE MUSIC. I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! mormon tabernacle choir is the best. i was a little irritated with my companinon the other day. not in the same room but i was studying with the music playing (we used the player from the chruch) and i was thinking a lot rationalizing all of that. and i´m trying to be like jesus came one. and wow. i just felt.....i dont know. i felt the spirit really strong. just pshhhh. it was really powerful. and i LOVE that song. the lyrics are perfect. wow i am feeling the spirit right typing this haha. i am TRYING to be like jesus. nobodoy is perfect. I AM TRYING though. i am trying so hard everyday to be better to develop attributes in myself. and AT TIME I AM TEMPTED TO MAKE THE WRONG CHOICH... but i try to listen to the still small voice whispers Love one another as jesus loved you...... i could go on and on... but i love that song. i love music. listen to good music at home that uplifts you and makes you happy. try to be more christlike everyday. he is perfect. i know he lives right now. romans 3:23. we´re not perfect. but through the atonement we can try everyday. love one another!!!
