And it came to pass in the 2nd year of the reign of Renè Videla, began the 8th transfer of Elder Forsgren‏

Hola todos!

So their have been a fair amount of changes today alone!  This week has been a little slow but full of action for us!  Today Elder Ramos and Elder Tibbitts (both of the Elders from the other half of the ward) had transfers, but that isn`t the hectic part; they aren`t sending Elders to their sector, they just doubled the size of ours...  We now have the entire ward to work in, and we have to keep up with the high speed pace that Elder Ramos and Elder Tibbitts set.  So this next change we will be working really hard.  We also now have a house of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a fair sized living room all to ourselves!  So we`ve learned the lesson "Where much is given, much is required" and we will be enjoying working hard this next transfer. 

This past week we got rain and we got a lot!!  It made me so happy, I`ve missed the rain so much!  It ended a very long drought in Santiago, so the people hare really happy, however, no one knows how to live in rain here, so they`re all a little ticked at the same time.  It was really funny, there was an ocean outside our apartments yesterday, and we had to go out in boots, umbrellas, and plastic bags to protect us and our scriptures from getting soaked.  Then it stopped raining hard...  after we left in all our gear.  But it still gave us a nice sprinkle for a good while, and so I was thoroughly pleased.  

Our ward this past week decided to do a typical food from Chile activity and it was really fun!  I enjoyed eating all the different types of Chilean food.  It actually inspired me to try something typical from my house, so I tried to make pancakes.  It went less than splendidly, and they turned out to be little weird looking things.  However, with a little bit of syrup they tasted really good!  

I would now like to testify to you all the importance of the Gospel of Christ.  He has revealed this Gospel to us throughout all history through His prophets.  He has given it to us so that we can receive the blessings that we need to come unto Him and our Heavenly Father after this life.  He knows we can`t do this without His divine help, and so he has sent us prophets throughout all times (especially now) so that we actually have it.  I know that He has called prophets for us in these days so that we can benefit from the same blessings that the people in the age of Adam, Moses, Isiah, and even Jesus Himself received.  I know that in this day Thomas Spencer Monson is a living prophet of His and I know that we have the Gospel because He revealed these things unto Latter-Day prophets.  
I love you all and share these things with you all in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Con amor,
Elder Forsgren
"Welcome to IHOP this wonderful evening, My name is Elder Forsgren, I`ll be your server, and may I recommend the "eating in home"?  It`s cheaper and our chef didn`t make it!"
