What A WEEK, ha it honestly seems like time doesn't function the same for me as it does the rest of the world. It's a little stressful, but oh well! So, the Training is coming along great! My comp is really a good Elder and is learning to talk to the people in lots of situations. It's helped me a lot to be able to see what I really can do. But thank goodness for the support of God. I understand a lot more of what is said when they glory not in their own strength, but in the Strength of their God. With out that strength I'd be fried.(finally we had a small tremor, so the fears of the "Big one" can be hushed a little :( )

SOO HAPPY MOTHERS DAY I know I'm a little late, but I don't like to jump the gun. So, better to do it after maybe. You can just think of it like a blessing, they always come, just sometimes not on the day we had scheduled.
So another change has begun! I've now got "a son" here in mission. Elder Gustavo Alvarez from Uruguay! He is a great Elder and is going to have a lot of success in his mission. Elder Gomez is now in a area of the Hills above Viña (Achupaellis). So, I stayed in my area. We have a few changes in the district including two more Elders. which makes things fun, and the nightly calls a little longer, but its all a good experience! I love the mission and all the Crazy things that happen.
SO HERE IS A QUOTE:
" If you don't have time to pray and read your scriptures you are busier than God ever intended you to be."
So, I hope no one is busier than God intended them to be!
Also, another thought that I liked a lot, reading Moses chapter one. The difference of How God the father refers to Moses and how Lucifer refers to Moses, and then the response of Moses.
If you could all read it you will see that God refers to Moses as son. Hence making him a son of God but Lucifer refers to him as son of man. And then Moses cuts Lucifer and tells him "I am a SON OF GOD."
Moses had the kind of relationship we should all look for with our Father. If you don't feel like God exists or that you don't feel his love,, or that you are his Child I invite you as a Representative of Christ to LOOK FOR GOD. We are his Children and we need not fall to the temptation of the devil. If we don't look for our Father it will be our own fault when we know him not.
Love you guys a lot! Miss you a lot too, but time is the only barrier. So gotta make it count.

Wow and another one bites the dust! Another week, and another Change.This week was pretty great, full of challenges and triumphs. Plenty of things are happening and changing! It's starting to get a little colder and so I'm feeling that the Chile that I first met and loved is getting ready to make a come back.
