New Area, New Companion and a New Bishop

February 16, 2015

Dear Family,
Well, this has been a good week.  

The weather here in Talcahuano is way comfortable right now.  It isn’t as hot as Parral, there is a constant and strong ocean wind, and we can see the huge huge ships that come into the harbor area of the zone.  It is a great ward, with about 160 people in church on Sundays.  Our ward mission leader magnifies his calling, and we got a new bishopric last Sunday.  The ward had gone a few months without a bishop, because the last one moved and they took a while to find a new one.  Bishop Krausse is his name, and he looks like Einstein, an older guy with crazy scientist white hair, and a well trimmed white moustache.  He is cool. 

Being companions with Elder Hutchins is probably one of the biggest blessings so far in the mission.  We think alike and I haven’t ever had a comp I got along with so well.  He is the 3rd of 10 children, which explains why he is so easy to get along with.

Well, I am out of time.  I was reading and responding to a lot of people today.  Just know that I am happy and healthy and love you all more than the number of paper clips it would take to link the sun to the far end of the milky way galaxy.

Elder Withers
