E-mail and photos

     Hola!  Man, the weather forecast is looking pretty nice!  It has been getting really warm here lately!  It is a good thing we got the air conditioning in the truck fixed! :)  It was fun to see some of the older pictures that you sent me!  Definitely miss those times in the mountains!  That sounds tough about your class with the lady, haha.  Those are always the worst - always just super awkward moments when there are other investigators and people go off like that!  Happens a lot here in my ward right now.  The ward is struggling a lot for sure.  It's hard to know what to do to get everyone going agian!
     Well, it was another pretty good week again, haha.  Did get to go to the coast again with Elder Harman this time though!  I guess I do kinda go out there alot, haha.  Guess it is a little easier to make up an excuse to do something when it is a cool place, haha. Nah, but we have been doing a lot out there.  President is going crazy with the missioneros there, and has doubled the amount out there!  So we have been doing a bunch with new houses and stuff, but I haven't minded at all, like you might have noticed! :)
     Today we went to one of the big malls in Santiago to go eat and just relax a bit and we had a pretty sweet experience there!  Me and Elder Harman were just kinda walking around trying to figure out what we wanted to eat and we were standing in front of the nicer restaurants, just looking around, and a guy came up behind us and grabbed our shoulders and said in English, "Hello Elders!  How is it goin?!"  It is always a nice surprise  when someone speaks English good, haha.  But anyway, we got to talking to this guy and turns out he graduated from BYU!  But he is not a member - he said that he had the lessons like thirty times but they could never convince him - just didn´t feel right for him.  But he said that he loves the Mormons and respects us a lot.  Anyway he turns out to be the owner of one of the restaurants we were standing in front of, so he told us to sit down and lunch was on him!  Ha, definitely was way above our paygrade!  But it was sweet!  Had some good Mexican food, and he just sat next to us and talked to us the whole time - it turned out to be a pretty cool experience!  A good little blessing we were able to get, I guess! :) 
     Tonight we have a lesson with a guy that actually contacted us.  He is an awesome guy.  We had a tour of the church with him last week, and he is pretty excited about the whole thing!  It is awesome when people already know how good the Church is and stuff.  He already has a really strong testimony of the Book of Mormon and everything, so I hope things go good!!  He is supposed to be here at the church in a couple of minutes so I better get going, but I hope you all have a great week this week!!  It was great to hear from you! :)
