Earthquake and Day of Celebration! (September 21, 2015)

Hello to Everyone,

So we`ve just had an Earthquake in Chile which was really funny actually.  We were in the street and all of a sudden everything started to move.  We thought it was just a tremble (there's a difference between Earthquake and tremble) but come to find out it was actually pretty serious.  For us it didn`t do anything really.  It was a nuisance more than anything else, but it sure was fun!  We didn`t even fall, we just got a little dizzy all of a sudden.  However Chile doesn`t stop moving...  it keeps trembling a 2-3 times a day.  We`ve determined that it has Parkinson's (the country that is)  

Two days after said earthquake happened we had the big party of 18 de septiembre, the most festive day of the year in Chile.  We literally had a day of celebrating with soccer (didn`t play), basketball (didn`t play), volleyball (didn`t play), tug of war (didn`t play), musical chairs, ping pong, and other fun things.  And FOOD!!!!  Lots of empanadas, lots of meat, lots of sweets, lots of food!!  And Chilean dancing (didn`t do either).  I really loved it though.  I haven`t had so much fun in a long time!!   And we`ll be continuing celebrating this next week too.

On top of those big events the week was also a very spiritual week with a mission conference that we had with on of the Area 70 and we got to hear some very inspired messages.  I really loved it.  

I hope y`all aren`t too shaken up, we certainly are here, keep up the good spirits, that`s what we`re doing!
Con amor,
Elder Forsgren
