To Chile and Back!!

   Hello everybody! So yes i know it is a wednesday this week, but it has been a crazy time here lately. I will go more into detail later. But it sounds like everybody is doing great there. Jess, Kade sounds like a great guy!! Tan Man, great job in football and enjoy those super nachos at the U of A games! Jordy and Naes, how is volleyball and swimming going for you guys? Momma, im glad i could help you with seminary. If there is anything else i can do to help, just let me know!! And Spencer and Kelsey are engaged?!! I didnt see that one coming at all haha. But that is way awesome and im happy for them!! Oh and Jess, you got to meet Elder Holland?!! I bet that was amazing! Meetting a special witness of Christ is sure a special experience and one that you will never forget! Oh Dad, you said there are many missionaries from our stake coming and going. Who all is getting back and who has recieved mission calls?
   So on to the crazy week! Argentina has been pretty stingy with our visas lately. All the new missionaries have only been coming with 3 month traveling visas and then during those 3 months we work on getting there real visas. So my visas expired last June (yes, ive been illegal here for like 3 months haha). But finally they told us that inorder to renew it, i was required to leave the country. And the same thing was happening to a lot of other missionaries here in Argentina. So on Monday, a group of about 50 missionaries from the missions Mendoza, Cordoba, and Salta took a bus over into Chile to do all of the visa paperwork. But it was a beautiful drive going up and over the Andes in order to get into Chile. But it was sure a long trip but a lot of fun to get to know the other missionaries and get to see a little of chile. We were only in chile for like 6 hours or so when we did the paperwork and then found a place to eat dinner, but it was a lot of fun!
    But things are going good here in Pringles. We have been teaching a girl named Celeste who is a friend of a member. She is really progressing well and wants to learn more so that she can teach her 4 month old daughter and help her. But her husband doesnt want anything to do with us and they have to get married as well. She wasnt able to come to church on sunday because it was raining pretty good and her daughter has been pretty sick with a virus. But she is really earning her own testimony of the gospel and it is amazing to see.
   We still havent been able to get into contact with Familia Ayala still, but tomorrow morning we are making to the trip out there to see if we can find them! And things have gotten a little more difficult with Flaurio and Mario. Flauria really wants to learn more and have us help her husband, but Mario has shut himself away from us. We arent really sure what happened because the first time he was really receptive. But it is alright, we are going to keep going strong and we will get in with them to help them!!
   Well, im sorry it is kind of short. I dont have a lot of time to write this time. But thank you all so much for everything. I love you all so much and will talk to you next week!!
