Hola mis queridos! (Hello My Dear Ones!)
Bueno, this week we did a bunch of cool things. On Friday we went to Purén to help out at a home for the Elderly. We painted their fence white and painted cartoons from Disney and the flags of our home countries. The viejitos (elderly) were so happy to see us. It started to rain halfway through the service project but happily, nothing happened to our paint job! The Elders moved a HUGE pile of firewood from the backyard to a shed and others took apart a green house and harvested the potatoes that were planted there. Everyone was dead beat tired in the end but the ride home in the bus was about and hour and a half long, so we ere well recuperated for the afternoon!

We are currently teaching a young woman named Mariana. She was born with... I can´t remember the name of it but she uses a wheel chair. She´s a really sweet girl with a big desire to help others and loves the Lord. We´re going to invite her to share some of her experiences in the Principios del Evangelio (Gospel Principles) class to help her get more involved with the church and the members. We´ll be visiting her today with one of the YSA (Yound Single adult members) that recently moved from Santiago to Angol.
There was a lot of rain this week, with sun...so we´ve saw a lot of rainbows! It was really beautiful. Actually, the day the we took the picture of the rainbow, we had a ¨rescate¨(rescue) activity with all the leaders of the ward here. We prayed over names of some of the less active members that haven´t been to church in a while and made a list of families we should visit. Then we divided up and visited them. The turnout was great! It was an awesome experience for the members and for the missionaries, so that we could see the success that missionary work has when we work together.

Love you lots! You´re always in my prayers and see you soon!
