Hola!!  Dang!! that looks like a pretty good hike Mom and Dad!  Definitely missing some Wyoming  hikes being down here in Chile!  But at least I get the coast to make me happy for now haha..  It has been pretty sweet here!  You hit it spot on with the map Dad - the biggest of the two circles in the map is the plaza, and I live right there in the middle.  I can't really remember what the streets are right there though, and then our sector where we are working is from Ave. Chile, up to the very corner of the map. That picture that you have has 8 missionaries working right there, and two wards.  It looks like I am closer to the coast than I thought I was!!  Looks like I will have to get someone to go run down there in the morning with me!  This week was a little tougher because I was pretty sick all week.  I had a really bad cold but my body was aching pretty bad and I just had no energy, but we still had a pretty good week!!  I did divisions twice this week and was able to see some other parts of the coast.  On Tuesday I went up to Cartagena which is a city right on the coast.  It was pretty windy and kind of a misty rain so it was super cold, and that was when I was the sickest, but it was lots of fun.  I was with Elder Henrich - it is fun to see all the 18 year olds coming into the mission that were only in the MTC for 5 or 6 weeks haha,   Just glad I don't have to start over with the Spanish!! Elder Huamani and I have been doing great here - my numbers are the best they have been in the mission and we have been seeing lots of good stuff happen - this ward is great and people are really willing to work, so I need to take advantage of that while I am here!! 
That is awesome everybody is coming home this week and gonna do all the normal family stuff!!  Jumpin off the rope swing sounds pretty good fun right about now, but since I won't be there it looks like dad is gonna have to take my turn!! :)  Make sure to get a picture of that one!!! I hope you all have a ton of fun!  I definitely appreciate that kinda stuff that we did now that I can't really do it!  But it is ok, I am definitely happy where I am for right now!!  Last night we taught a lady about the Restoration and it was awesome to see the look on her face as we were explaining everything and stuff - you could really tell she felt something and knew it was what she needs to be doing.  We were able to set a baptismal date with her so hopefully we can keep working with her. Her husband is gonna make it kinda hard, but I think it will all work out alright.  She has been baptized in like 4 different churches and she said every time it just wasn't what was right, so she finally has found the right one! 
Well I hope everything is going great over there!  Thanks for the package this week Dad, it was great!!  Have a great week this week everyone!! 
Les Quiero Mucho!!
