Nathan's Letter Dated Feb 4, 2013

Hey guys,

This week was really great. We had a pretty important soccer match yesterday with Chile versus Peru and Chile tied and is now going to the world cup, so everybody was pretty stoked yesterday night. My companion, however, is Peruvian, and wasn`t as excited! Haha

This week I had lots of good experiences and chances to learn. The awesome families that we are teaching are doing okay, but it is a difficult time of the year because everybody is going out of town on vacations, and this weekend was no exception with almost all of our families. It is okay though, because this weekend we will get em all there on Sunday. So far so good for this month of February, we are very blessed.

This week we have been living in our new apartment, and it is sweeeet. We live in an apartment right in the middle of the city, close to the beach. Everything is really new and nice, but the best part is our brand new washer. I am now doing all my laundry, and I don`t have to pay anything more than the detergent. It is really nice to have this washer, but we do not have a dryer, haha. So, we improvised and put up a clothes line on our balcony to dry all of the clothes. It really is very, very nice where we are living right now, and I am hoping that I don`t get changed! Haha

Well, for those of you who do not know what EFY is, it is a program for the youth of the church to go for five days to a camp to learn about the gospel and to have fun. Well, EFY has existed in the United States for a long time, but just this year it came to Chile. All of the youth went this last week for the first time ever in Chile to EFY, and they all came back full of excitement and the spirit. All of the youth bore their testimonies and it was a very powerful sacrament meeting.

So I suppose that many of the people reading my blog could be people who are not members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and may not know much about what we believe. Well, feel free to write me any question about the Church of Jesus Christ or its members at nathan.hales@myldsmail.net.
