¡¡First week in La Pintana!!

Hello from Santiago,

This week was pretty awesome. I'm training a missionary that is from Kansas. His name is Elder Thompson and is awesome. He is owning it up out here in the field. He talks to everyone and commits everyone to read and pray about the church. I can tell that it is going to be a great 3 months with him. 

As for this sector its pretty cool too. Nothing really happens here so there's not a lot to talk about. Except that we did meet a guy that believes that Jesus was never crucified but died in Gethsemane. He says that the scriptures say that. He belongs to a new church down here that just started up recently. But it was a very interesting conversation. We also met some really cool ward members. The ward here is really great. They are all willing to come and hep us visit people. we also got an investigador named Marcos. His wife and daughters are memebrs but he hasnt been baptized so we are working hard with him and are hoping for a baptism. But i will let you all know how everything goes. 

Today we hiked a hill called Cerro Chena it was really awesome. It was harder then i thought it would be or Ive just gotten wayyyy fat and am out of shape. I'm not sure which one, but we had a great view of the Santiago Valley. Then we had a prayer given by President Cook at the top for the mission and all the missionaries serving in our mission. It was a really cool experience. 

well, im glad that everything worked out with the move and that everything is in its place. I hope you all have a great week and recover from the crazy last two weeks!

Love you all, Elder Ashworth
