Happy Memorial Day!

Hey Everyone, Happy Memorial day! I hope that everyone in the states is enjoying the nice weather while someone down here is very wet all the time. This was a little bit of a warmer week but was very very wet. It has been raining for 2 days straight the whole time. I am getting great use out of my rain boots and rain pants.

On Friday, I recieved my Birthday package from home and have already been making good use of the rain cover for my backpack. My companion likes the swedish fish as he has never had them in his life.

This week we had a really good day where we taught 8 lessons in a day and invited two to be baptized. Both accepted but the hard part is that neither of them is married and that is always the challenge here in Chile. Nobody gets married but there are still a lot of good people.

This week, Papito has been at his home recovering from his accident but he always asks us to go with him to the store because now he is afraid of crossing the street, so we have been helping him with that.

I  can't believe that this next week we have changes again. I think that this was one of the fastest changes that has happened in my mission. Time is going so fast. I am so close to hitting my 1 year in the mission mark, which is crazy! I remember this time a year ago, I was so nervous to start this adventure and now I am already half way done.

Well, sorry that this letter is so short, I don't have much time as we have started a new way of reporting numbers to the president. Take Care All!

Love, Elder Nelson
