man its deja voo back in the computer shop again a lot to say but kulang (lacking) the words to explain!
first off im pretty sure the caugh is allergy related the medicine i was taking helped it a lot but now that i ran out its gotten bad again. so i think i will have to go back and get some more.
things here in santiago are greaaaat we had some reaaally crazy experiences happen this week . first off we went to a place that we hadnt been to before called bagong buhay ( which translated means new life ) but anyways we went finding or tracting there and man these people are poor. but in this little area they have little puroks or like villages of houses in groups, and then a ways down the road there will be another group of houses and so on. we went into one of these villages and oym (offered our message) to these two guys and ansked if we could teach them and they said sure one second and they got THE WHOLE VILLAGE ! ha ha we taugh a lesson to serously about fifty people. and they were receptive. it was nuts i felt like it was straite out of the book of mormon or something preaching to a congregation of people like alma does in chaoter 32. they want accepted a return appotinment and everything man that would be so cool if they all accepted the gospel a total miracle.
so mom you asked me to tell you about my area and where i live... my zone is the santiago zone, and this is because of the city santiago in the middle. its a pretty big city and they have basically everything we need here. this is the city that has the best taylors to get clothes made and well yeah just abut everything. weve got a mcdonalds and chow king and jolly b, and this place called k max that we go to a lot that is soooo good. in my area the places we go to are baptista village ( this is where our house is) , mabini, sa pangpali, saranai, st james (this place is pretty big) devasoria, bagong buhay, and some others i havent been to yet. we hae to take a tricee ( if you dont know what these are look them up online they are motorcycles with side cars on them and they are EVERYWHERE. im basically wet at least part of everyday its so normail to wake up to sunshine and then by4:00 its just pouring. its kinda crappy ha but its whatever by now.
