Sept. 11 is the anniversary of the 1973 coup in Chile that put Pinochet in power. Because that is another opportunity for some to commit mayhem, missionaries have to remain in their apartments Wednesday evening and Thursday all day. They are supposed to deep clean their apartments, but how long can that take with 4 guys? They are planning to barbeque some meat, and Ben is planning to write.
Another week in El Pino. The sector is progressing well. It was a
weird week. We had an enormous number of plans fall. Maybe more than I
have ever seen in my mission, or maybe I am just forgetting about my
first two whitewashes already. Almost appearing to make up for the
fallen plans, members seemed to just fall into our lap to do divisions
with us. In all of my time here, I have never had so many divisions.
Also, our brother who was baptized last week received the priesthood on Sunday and he and the
recent convert of Elder White and Elder Escobar, have both done
divisions with us. They also both have home teaching assignments.
for service, we only ended up teaching the English class and pushing a
few cars with dead batteries. Its too bad that as it gets warmer we
won't have that service opportunity so much.
