So this week...
We have a training session with the council of missionary work which boradcasted to all the missionaries around the world and on this council includes 3 of the 12 apostles. Elder Oaks, Bednar and Nielsen. Including others as well. But we recievd further instruction on how we can better the missionary work that we are doing to help others recieve this gospel and grow closer to our Savior. A few things that have changed for us is our everyday schedule of how we do things. So far in my mission ive had a very strict schedule as to when i study my language that im using, when i study with my companion, when i eat lunch and when i eat dinner. But the changes that took place allow us to have more flexibility and allow us to decide when we would like to do the following things depending on our daily schedule and appointments we have with others. Another thing had to do with numbers that we report to our leaders everyweek and i absolutely love the changes because it allows us to decide how we want to do things to best lead the work that we're doing and how we want to do it. very awesome.
that was the biggest thing i got this week, all is well and things are going okay down here in Chile. I love and miss you all very much. until next time,

facts about chile:
1. Chileans say "si Dios quire" to answer everytime you want them to do something for you which literally just translates to "if God wants" haha
2. The mail system in Chile is terrible, you have to go to a postal service place to do anything, they dont have mailboxes here for people to recieve stuff at their houses
3. Latinos call us Gringos because in Spanish American War when we were fighting the Mexicans could only understand when the captains would say "Green, GO!" and so they nicknamed us Gringos..and there you have it
