Elder Schwartz has sent us a nice email and some great photos from Santiago. The email starts just below:
Sorry but this one is going to be super short because it took me forever to figure out how to attach emails to pictures from this computer, but now I know so now I should be able to do it faster in the future.
Elder Garcia and I are doing really well. (Photo of us below). He is helping me A TON with my Spanish. I still am having a hard time understanding a lot of it, but I am at the point where I am getting the idea of what they are saying, and I'm able to respond. The people here talk SO FAST, but I love them nonetheless. We have Almuerso (lunch, a big lunch) every day in a member family's home and thats been a lot of fun. Elder Miller and I usually share the spiritual thought at the end.
Its so great to hear that all of the family is doing well, I hope you sent everyone my love! Thank ou for the pictures; they made me smile.
Everything is great down here, the weather is starting to warm up which I'm really looking forward to. I honestly can't beleive that I'm on week 4 already! The time is flying so fast! I know that this is the only true Church and I am so blessed to have had it in my life for my entire life. There's a lot of people here that need those blessings and I am so excited to be the one who gets to share it with them. I know that I am doing the Lord's work and that he is watching over me and protecting me, and is protecting you as well. I promise a longer letter next week!
I love you all!
