First off, we found a little black puppy in front of our house this past tuesday, it must have been a couple days old because it was so small. We kept it for 2 nights and then found somebody who wanted it in the sector.
On thursday our stake had a Temple activity, and our bishop is friends with our Mission Pres., so... WE WENT TO THE TEMPLE!!! It was so awesome! We did alot of work. We got alot done. It was so nice to enter in the temple again and get away from the world. We went to the Santiago Temple, they´re building a new temple up in Concepcion, Chile.
This week has been really good for the work too. We found alot of NEW investigators, ones who have NEVER heard our message, It was so awesome to see their eyes when we explained the Book of Mormon and how Jesus visited the Americas. They really have never heard it. There is one family that we found that is so perfect, I just hope they´re married! That´s a pretty big problem here in Chile, when people aren´t married. Well other then that our missionary lives are going sweet.

The Mish is going really good. I got a new companion last week, his name is Elder Hunt. We've been getting along really good, and thus the work has been going great! We have 4 people who have baptismal dates! Hopefully they keep their commitments! Me? I've been doing fine, my health is good, my thoughts are good and not set on home or other things, the spanish is going really good (I learn a couple new words every day) So things are just fine with me. Todays our p-day, so we got up and cleaned the house (you'd be so proud of how clean I keep the house!) Then we got a taxi to a near by town San Bernardo. We ate at McDonalds! It's SO different here. And now I'm writing you in an internet café. We'll probably go grocery shopping after this and then back home. Since today is Columbus day there's these huge things Chile does, it's like a yard sale and a flea market mixed, but they open them on huge freeway streets, so the whole street is closed off! I know your Mom would love it! There called Persas or Ferias. Anyways we're probably gonna walk that today and see if there is anything cool. Since I've been here in Chile I think I've played like 200 games of soccer, I'm not even kidding! It's so much fun. OH! Chile beat Columbia 2 days ago in the finals to play in the world cup in 2010, and people were going crazy! Everybody was screaming and honking their car horns and shooting their guns! It was so funny! Kinda scary though. Chile is insane when it comes to soccer.
