Yr. 2 - Week 11: It Rained like a Mother Load

Dear Family and Friends,

Wow, this week was wet and very cold. BUT IT WAS GOOD WEEK :) I was really strengthened this week through prayer and study and things are going well as a whole. FIRST, the rain...

This week it rained like a mother load. We had Friday, Saturday, and Sunday full of rain and Tuesday was also rainy. There were many days when we got back soaking, despite the umbrellas we had. When we got soaked, we put our things out to dry but the pension is so cold at night it wasn't even close to dry by the time we woke up!...ugh, it was tough! Haha! It has also been a bit tough this week to contact seeing as there wasn't a whole lot of people in the street and all but we are working hard and that is the most important thing!

L. and C. got confirmed yesterday... J. wanted my companion and I to confirm the kids so that was a really neat experience. We both felt impressed to bless them to be good examples and leaders in the church :) It was super cool! They are doing really well!!! :)

So today we went to a place called Cajón de Maipo! It's up in the mountains over Santiago, in the Andes :) We went as a group with a member in our ward, Hermano L.! We had such a good time, there was so much snow, we ran up the big snow slope to look out over the view. We got up there and some guy told us we couldn't make it up without chains...and he wanted us to rent chains for 30 bucks... Hermano L. was like, NOPE! He went up in his little Suzuki and got all the way to the top with no chains. We even passed jeeps that got stuck with chains :D We were rooting him on the whole way. We ate lunch up there and really just had a blast! Right now I'm quite tired but it was worth it, definitely worth it!!! I sent you guys almost all of the photos I took up there!!! :) It's really beautiful, it reminded me a whole lot of the ROCKY MOUNTAINS!!!

Love you all,

Elder Bushman
