So many good photos! Aleksi, you look so beautiful and hipster. Eva too. Mom I got the package! (at least I´m pretty sure...I haven´t opened it yet but I think it´s it). It´s been a great week. Rainy. Cold. Windy. But great, really great. Elder Arce and I are teaching so much. We´ve found so many new potentials. Roberto and Johanna are doing really well too. Roberto even leaves with us sometimes! How great is that?! I can´t believe this is the last week of this transfer. It feels like I just picked Elder Arce up from the bus station. Time has really flown. I celebrated six months on the mission this past week. That´s crazy. Time has gone by too fast. Six months?! (Mitchell just emailed me!) (We´re on at the same time!!!). I love the mission.
Today, as a zone, we went to Saltos de Petrohue again. Remember when I went before? I think my first transfer. With all the waterfalls and rapids. Today was even better. Both volcanoes are covered in snow and it was super lindo. And then we went to "Lago de los Santos" -- which is near "Saltos" but much calmer. aka Lago. Which means lake. But we took photos, skipped rocks, talked, and took photos. And we were with Puerto Montt zone too. We rented a bus and went, it was really cool. Fifty missionaries crammed into a bus. haha. But it was fun. I love the mission.
Cassie´s last week as a JUNIOR! and then she´s going to be a Senior! What?! and I agree with Mitchell, Eva - spill! Nick?! But waiting patiently...I can´t believe the Florida weather, it hailed? que raro! Looks like Florida and Chile have that in common. It hasn´t hailed, but in the morning it´ll be super cold. Then the sun´ll come up and it´ll get hot. and then it´ll rain. and then it´ll be cold again! Yesterday, this man predicted that Chile was going to have the worst earthquake ever. Nobody believed it, but Elder Arce and I had our cameras on us just in case. haha. Nothing happened. How scary would that have been!
Family, thank you for all your letters and continual support and love. Shreeve family. Kate. Kelly. Marissa. Alexa. Chris. Sean. Reagan. Everyone who writes me. You´re inluded. I´m working hard and learning so much. The mission really is one of the greatest decisions I´ve ever made.
