OK kids. this week, lots of pretty epic things happened to tell you the truth. woot! OK
so, first off, on Friday, we had interviews with the pres! and they went super well, finally i understood everything that he was saying to me haha. it was amazing. he was stoked to hear all about the fam and every thing. I'm really gonna miss president almonte when he peaces out. for sure. then, on Saturday, we left the house at 6 am to, du du da!! go to the EAST mission to go and see Elder Nelson of the 12 apostles!! it was amazing. we got to meet him and shake his hand and listen to him and a few other general authorities. it was only the people in the capital area of the west and east mission. so i got to see a few people from my group that went to the east mission and guess what?? i saw Elder Campbell! pres Campbell's son! he is in the east mission, and it pretty much blew his mind that i was there, haha. he was like "man, i did not know that anyone from my stake was on this little island!! so that was awesome to see him. it was crazy. he almost is at 20 months! crazy man.

After that, we did some tiguraje and went to a McDonald's close buy, and man alive it made me SOOO trunky it was so freaking amazing. it was also like 12 dollars! man alive, fast food here is more expensive here then there. its soooo weird to go to a McDonald's and see all the super rich people eating there, that threw me off a bit! and then, 2 very American people walked in, a new couple, one wearing a byu shirt (EW) and he is a rm from the Santiago (north) mission and he was there visiting with his new wife! it was cool to talk with them for a bit. they live in PG.

One more thing, yesterday we left with a member named yonathan and he was bugging me about harry potter and how it ends, he only knows the movies because the books are waaay pricy for people here. so i just told him that harry potter dies, and he believed me. so i started making up all sorts of stuff, and he finally accepted it. then, he wanted to know who killed him. so i whispered in his ear "ginny weasly" and he stopped, jaw dropped, and was starting into the oblivion for a few min. it was hilarious. so now he and my comp think that ginny kills harry in the last book hahahahaha. good times.

so no other stories but that. we could have 4 baptisms this week, but unless things change I'm gonna postpone them, they aren't ready. its the right thing to do, but my comp is gonna be furious...oh well, cant rush something as important as baptism, ya know? especially if i want them to stay active. more on that next week though, we will see how it goes.
well, i forgot my cable again, so ill see if i can find a way to send pics, sorry! i have a bunch of good ones too!!!
well, until next week guys! love you!
