Monday - Missionary Update
Well mom and dad, things are going good here in Valdivia. This week did go by really fast. I guess that is what happens when you got a lot of things to do huh? Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun this week with the camping and the bike ride. I guess we will have to be doing that when I get back. Speaking of getting back, and to answer your question about the date, its set at the 30th of December. Actually we cant change it. The office called me the other day when I was in interchanges and told me that they already bought my ticket. It is going to be really busy that time of year, so they need to do it really early. And about the card, I haven’t gotten it yet, but then again, I haven’t checked yet. We are going to get the mail today after we are done using the net and bowling. That’s right….bowling. Our zone and another zone are going to get together and we are going to play a little game of bowling. This is the only place that I have ever seen here in Chile that has bowling, so this should be really cool! When I do get the card, the office will be giving you a call saying that I got my card and that you guys can go ahead and activate it., so no worries there. Nothing else big going on this week, just the good old missionary work. Can you believe how the time is flying by? We are coming up on the 20th month mark. WOW kinda crazy huh?
Thanks you guys for sending me the pics, although, one of the pics I couldn’t see, it was the one that you sent me mom, I am not sure why, but I couldn’t even open it. Maybe you sent it wrong. As you can see I have added some pics of my new comp. I know its kinda late haha but whatever. It has been really cold, and I am actually short on just a couple of things that I accedently left in my other sector. Clothes no…but like fingernail clippers, and an adapter for my razor, and my discman. I guess that I will have to wait to get them when the card comes. Something cool to tell you guys. The sister of my comp, Elder Cuadra lives kinda close to our house. I gave the direction to my comp to give to her so that she could see our house and she told me comp that the other day, she found and saw our house. She didn’t have time to see if someone was home, but hey there was someone from chile really close to our house haha! Other than this guys, nothing new going on. I am going to send you guys some pics now. I love you guys and miss you!!
**Those hot dogs actually look good! And what's up with the dorky glasses? IDK - he didn't mention anything about them.......
