So as expected Maria Livia Giraldo was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. What a special day it was for her. Shes not really a woman that likes to show much emotion but she couldn't help but display the joy she felt. What a neat experience. But it wasn't easy we did some major traveling, my companion and I had to travel to the other side of Santiago to go to the temple where Maria could get interviewed by baptized by President Canioles. It was quite the hassle. But all went well.
Today we did some more sighteeing and we climbed Cerro Santa Lucia, it was awesome, the architecture is super beautiful and we had a great time celebrating the last Pday for my companion Elder Garcia before he heads home to Mexico.
So i dont have too much to say but ive got a ton of pics so i hope that makes up for it. I wish you all a wonderful thankgiving as you reunite with famil, friends and loved ones and i hope you all are able to feel and share the things your are grateful for in your lives. The Lord has truly blesed all of us in more ways than one and we just need to take the time to look. Happy Thansgiving!

Facts of the week:
1. theres these spiders here that make these cool spider webs that look like blackholes on like every tree here and if you stick your pen on the web and cause a vibration on the web, the spider will come out and literally try to grab the pen from you. It was quite terrifying at first but now its an entertaining game we play.
2. Its completely normal to pass other cars by going into the othher lane going the other way. In the states its seen as rude and a bit dangerous, but here its an everyda necesity. I would hate to drive here.
