Hola!  Well, it was another pretty good week down here in Chile!  Finally figured out why they call it "Chile" cause dang it has been getting hot down here, haha.  And about the "does it rain?" question.  Well, sure doesn't look like it!  It has been getting pretty warm down here.  There have been lots of fires over in the hills next to the city, so the city has just been chuck full of smoke lately!  My eyes were burning pretty bad there for a few days, but it has started to go away now, so I am happy about that!  This week President gave me the go on finding the 5 new apartments over there where the office is gonna be, so that is pretty much all I worked on this week.  Spent three days just walking around asking in all the buildings and stuff.  We are doing pretty good so far - think we will be all good for the move here in a couple weeks.  We had a Seventy that came from Argentina to check everything out and make sure the new office would be alright and everything.  He was just in the office talking to us and there were a couple of missionaries that just have a couple weeks left and something he said was pretty sweet. He said make sure you give it your all up until the very end - a lot of the times the last few days or weeks are the most important.  Just think of Jesus' life - what if he would have stopped working his last 5 days....  Anyway that was a pretty good lesson for me on persevering...  Made me think pretty good!  
    Today for p-day we had to go over to the east side of the city to pick up some stuff for President, so we took advantage and went to one of the sweet malls and had some T.G.I. Friday´s!  Pretty good stuff!  Definitely makes the week a little bit easier when you start it with some good ole American food!  Thanks for sending all the pictures and stuff Dad, and also the optometry links, they work great!  That will make it a lot easier to be able to decide what classes I should be taking.  Sounds like you guys are getting some pretty good snow up there!  Gonna have to go take advantage of it at Targhee or something :) 
     Well don't have too much more stuff going on, all the days always just blur together and I can't remember anything I did!  But I hope everyone is doing good! I have gotten some Christmas cards from a couple of my sisters, so thanks for those!  I enjoyed them a lot! :)
Have a great week this week!

Elder Moser
