Hey family and friends!!

Wow! We have had a crazy, crazy week this week. I think we have done more walking and more work than I have my whole mission! We found a whopping TWELVE new investigators this week, and we think that at least five of them will progress quickly and be baptized! WOOHOO! We are working our little tails off here.

Studying in the hallway lights
After all our hard work this week, our condo complex decided to give us a nice present and cut off our gas and electricity. Apparently the owner of our condo (not the mission, but the actual people we rent the condo from) hasn't been paying, or something like that. So..... yep, we have been using candles, studying in the hallway outside the condo, etc. because we are IN THE DARK! haha!

But, the good news is, we have the strongest light that there is, and that is the light of Jesus Christ! We are still going strong here, don't worry! haha! And, to top it all off, we have been waking up ONE HOUR EARLY everyday this week to run outside. By the end of the run, we are SO hot from running that the ARCTIC COLD shower isn't so painful, LOL! We are making things work out where we can :) But, yes, it has been an adventure without light and warm water.... not my favorite!
Who needs electricity when we have Papa John's?

This week coming up should be a really crazy one! We have our quarterly interviews with the mission president this Wednesday, and that is always fun :) He is awesome, and always gives great advice and excitement for the work too! We also have our leadership meeting this Friday in ViƱa del Mar again, which means that I will be getting some letters from you guys this week! WOOHOO!

Well, have a fabulous Cinco de Mayo today, and I will talk to you guys in 6 days with SKYPE! Happy Mothers Day! And happy birthday to my Daddy tomorrow! You are the best Dad on the PLANET! Talk to you all soon!
