To whom it may concern...? Another week goes by here in the cold. Looks like I'll be here for another 6 weeks. Hopefully we can get things rolling here, cuz I've been pretty frustrated these last 12 weeks. Haha.... On Sunday only one person who has a baptismal date went to church, Monica. Miguel Ahumada was sick and we don't know what is going on with the Ochoa family because we haven't been able to make contact except once in the past week and our member that is helping us, Marcelo, hasn't been able to get in contact with them either. Lame... But we are looking forward to a great transfer now that the other one has gone by. Hmmm... What else... Oh. We went to a funeral of 2 pioneer (for the island) members who were killed last week from another branch. It was really sad, but Elder and Hna. Downs (the couple that came here) tell us that they have been able to get in contact with a lot of less actives of Chacra and El Centro (the other 2 branches) due to the funeral and all the people that went to the viewing and funeral. Oh!!!! Hahahahha!!! I just remembered the epic moment of the week!!! Yes!!! Hahaha. This past week... like... Friday or something... we were with the Ahumada family teaching them and then afterwards we had another appointment far away and we were running late so Miguel offered to drive us in his super ghetto car. So we hopped in and we headed off and he was telling us how he always just drives normal even if the terrain isn't ideal (because the dirt roads here have weird tiny pot hole thingies everywhere) when we went down a road and there was a big body of water.... he accelerated and we entered into the water made it about half way and then we stopped and the motor cut out. So he tries to start it up and it wouldn't start up.... haha.... then my foot started getting cold and my companion reached down to the floor and said, Ah! There's a bunch of water!!! Hahahhaa. Oh no.... So they took off their shoes and socks and rolled up their pants and I just walked out with my boots and the water was suuuper cold and we started pushing the car out. Hahahahaha. We finally got it out and it was really cold after. Then a member came and towed the car with a little rope back to Miguel's house and luckily the next day the car worked so he could go to work. Anyways, that's all I've got this week. Hope you enjoyed. haha. Love you guys. Thanks for everything. Happy mothers day!
