We then had some orientation stuff, got paired up with our companions and were off!!! our are is in a town called Chillan in the middle of chile about an 1:30 from conce. Elder Ospina, my trainer, is exactly what i wouldve hoped for. a 5´3" columbian!!!! its liike they did it on purpose! we live with 4 other missionaries who happen to be the zone leaders and our district leaders. WE HAVE A GYM!!! every morning we go and lift and its fantastic. There’s an outside linebacker for byu that is one of the zone leaders and the other one was an AP so we get a ot of cool priviledges. our day to day activities go as follows

Okay time for the funny story of the week,So were chopping wood as a service project for a recent convert named elsa. Well after getting halfway through the pile of wood. I may or may not have broken her axe. Okay, i broke it but to be fair it was a crappy axe. So we come back the next day after borrowing an axe from another member. 5 pieces of wood later.... guess who broke the second axe. yup. 2 axes. 2 days. At least you can’t say I’m inconsistent! so today along with groceries we will be looking for 2 axes to replace the ones we broke
Please pray for our investigators ricardo and katherine that they can find the strength to complete their goals. I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!
