So as I'm sure you've seen by now, I haven't been sending very many pictures in my emails, I mean I thought I was but I guess not, that's ok. So I took my camera out with me every day and now I have SO many pictures. That's for you, Mom, because I love you haha.
So yeah this week Elder Dieter F Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles came to Chile! Saturday he spoke to all the missions in Santiago then Sunday to all of Chile by a broadcast. It was SUPER cool, Saturday I got to shake his hand! That was an experience for sure wow.
Monday we got the transfer call with the whole zone in the stake center,, and Elder Cardoso and I are staying in Vicuña Mackenna for another six weeks at least! Super cool, we're super excited to keep working here because we just started to find some good people to teach! There's always more searching to be done, but yeah, we're getting there!
And yeah this last week has been super super fun and we've done a lot I feel like.
Just one last thing, you remember right before I got here all of Santiago got shut down with a bunch of riots and protests and stuff? Well the government hasn't changed anything, lol, so when the kids get back from summer vacation, they're gonna start it all over again! Whoohooo. So that means when we went shopping today we bought extra rice and stuff like that to last when we're probably gonna be stuck inside for a while. But hey nothing to worry about, just thought I'd let you all know and stuff.
Scripture time!! Moses 1:37 And the Lord God spake unto Moses, saying: The heavens, they are many, and they cannot be numbered unto man; but they are numbered unto me, for they are mine.
Sometimes we feel like there are SOO many people or maybe there are so many things in the world that seem like God doesn't know us or maybe or worries are just little tiny ones and they don't matter to Him because there are so many worse things in the world, but hey! That's w r o n g haha. God says here that He knows all the worlds He's created, and we know He knows each of you by name! And He knows your problems, what you're worried about, what scares you at night, what you think about all the time wishing you had done differently. And He still loves you SO much.
So yeah hope you all have a great week! I love you all really you're the best
Sorry there are SO MANY pictures! Love you all!!!!!!!!!
