ok so i dont have much time.. actually, we´re leaving right now :P sorry thyis is soo short... But yeah the elder did have to go home, cuz i guess he fractured his Fibia too :( so that was sad..
Thats crazy that you guys felt a temblora! i mean tremor haha 5.8 is nuthin lol but now you know what a night feels like here lol glad it wasnt too devastating tho, cuz we only heard about it from members and didnt really have many details :P
but things in Chile are still good. not much happened this week.. it rained a ton. and they changed the hour here ahead 1 hour, so im ahead of you guys an hour now. and when you guys go back i´ll be up 2 haha so idk why its like that, but it is haha :P this sectors good though the appartments im in are right down the road from the mall, so i can always see all the movies im missiing on the big billboard haha :P Theres a lot of street performers here too trying to make their way thru college. they usually juggle in the street at the red lights and go collect tips before it turns green, some of tghem are actually really good. theres one that does it with flaming sticks haha but if you dont have that talent, you just go to any big grocery store and bag peoples food for tips, cuz the stores here dont have paid baggers. Every once in awhile you see random horses walking around town, and it seems like the people dont even notice that they´re there lol just like all the nasty dogs that poop everywhere here :P as for work, its going alright. not amazing. the only real investigator with potencial is the 23 year old named Anita that works delivering babies. she´s been bringing the Book of Mormon to the hospital to read it in her down time. so im thinkin thats gonna be opur baptism for september. other than that we´ve just been doing a bunch of door contacts, and having fun listening to all the people making up excuses as to why we cant come in. most of them are pretty funny. like yesterday we called on an intercom, and the lady answered and was like "Hola, who am i talking with?"
 "The LDS missionaries"
 "Ohhhh... umm this is a recording.. theres no one here right now." *CLICK* lol we got a good laugh out of that one. other people think were from the CIA and that our badges have cameras in them ahah and then you always get the kid sent out to lie for their parents that says stuff like "oh my moms not here right now"
"oh ok so can you ask her when we can come by then?"
"yeah sure" and then they walk back in ask when we can come back lol its pretty sad..
But thats how it goes here haha but we did find a less active that day that said she wanted to come back to church but didnt know where it was, and that she had been waiting for us to find her, so that was a cool one :) and the rest of her family arent members, so looks like some baptisms too ;) haha So yeah thats whats up this week.. not too much craziness.
Anyways, thanks for the email :) i miss and love you guys soo much and cant wait to see you all :) but until then
Love and remember,
Elder Philpott
