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.
