Chile is good. this morning the other 3 missionaries i live with (E'Paz, E'Hepworth, and E'Lopez) woke up early and went down stairs and cameback up wth a cake they bought for me and woke me up and sang happy birthday then rubbed some frosting on my face . which is a lot better than the normal thing to do here which is push ur whole face in the cake haha so i got off lucky.
So yeahthis sector is pretty good soo far. My new comp is E'Lopez from El Salvador. My 3rd latin comp. and E'Hepworth is from Utah, E'Paz is from Honduras. theyre all pretty cool. My comp is really funny, but a little socially awkward sometimes, and likes to tickle me. lol in the zone here they call him Mr.Tickles lol luckily for me im only ticklish every once in awhile. Oh and one day we were walkin down the sidewalk and he was like "hey go say hi to that guy and see what happens" it was an old man wearing a suit that was from the 70s, so i went up and was like "hey how ya doin?" and he was like "hey there young man! It sure is a hot day today, have some candy to cool off." and he gave us 2 pieces of candy and walked off. then my comps like "theres a few secrets to this sector that come in handy" lol
The house here is really nice too.. well when compared to the last house i was in haha this one doesnt have fleas at least haha but the shower here doesnt stay hot. it goes between hot n cold every 3 minutes :P but this house is pretty big at least. there used to be sister missionaries in this sector until last year. The ward here is about 70 or 90 people on average. But they havent had a baptism here since january, so were gonna try to fix that.
It was really sad to leave Penco though. We had a big Family home evening with the campbell family, Joselyn and Nachos family, and some other members of the ward. And we had a very emotional time. everyone was saying somestuff about how i had an impact in their lives and started crying, and then Joselyn talked about how i changed her and her families lives forever. and how she feels soo happy that she found the true gospel and that she cant wait till she has her own family to get sealed in the temple to them
and how just everything in her life was changed because we knocked on their door one day. so then i had to say my farwell, and started crying too. cuz i then realized how much of a difference i really had made in their lives. i think the whole mission has been worth it just for that. Its crazy what the gospel does for a life. I dont know the first thing about how to make someones life better, i just teach the lessons and have them read the scriptures and go to church, and their lives fix themselves and they put a permanent smile on their faces because of it. its crazy.
i mis and love you all and will see you in 9 months
