Dear Family and Friends,

Im sorry to hear that the weather there is pretty crappy and cold. Because the weather here is HOT! It is in the 80´s and im sweating like crazy. The nights are hot with a fan and im sleeping under only a sheet. That sucks that Grandma Ashworth died but Im glad that she can get away from the pain of this world. Send my love to your family when you get to Utah. Sorry you guys have been sick ever since i left, que fome (thats lame). 

Its cool you guys got to go down to Soda Springs and visit grandma, im sure it was nice to see them again. Also im sorry the picture made you guys cry. I thought it was a good picture but i guess everyone has their opinions. So if you want to think of it as a bad, ugly picture go ahead. Im just going to remember it as an awesome picture. Im glad everything else is going good for you guys. Im sure everyone is getting ready for Christmas now that its November. Holy Crap, Its November! Its so weird for it not to be cold but i guess its ok. On Sunday when we went over to a Hermanas house to eat lunch they turned on Christmas music. It was so wierd to hear Christmas music and be sweating in their house eating lunch. Also to hear all of their stories about hanging out by the pool for Christmas when im used to being stuck inside because its freakin cold. Lets just say this will be an interesting Christmas.

My week was pretty crazy. We had a ruff time. Everyone of our appointments got dropped, we were denied over and over again, and ignored by those who had set appointments when we arrived at their houses. It was spiritually, mentally, and emotionally hard. But we got through it and had a change of attitude. We just kept trying and things are starting to turn around. We have found about 3 or 4 new/future investigators and are trying to talk to everyone. We now almost have a full week of appointments to go to. The people we talked to were a girl who was crying in the park because of some family issues, the husband of a less active member in the ward who just lost his mom, a woman who has no religion but believes in God, and a man who is lonely and has lost his three sons so he doesn't believe in a God. So yeah, this should be a good week. 

They have this Flea Market thing that is just down the street from our house. Its HUGE! its called the Feria. You can find anything there, its so cool. Also we just learned that Elder Holland is coming down to talk to all of the missionaries in the south, east, west, and north missions of Santiago on November 12. IM so freakin stoked. It will be an awesome experience. 

Thanks for sending me those things even though i dont need a Christmas package. Im looking forward to talking to you guys around Christmas. It should be on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. It will be nice to see you guys. I think thats all for this week. 

Love you Guys,
Elder Ashworth
