Moving, Manzanal, and a New Bath Mat

Hey everyone!

My new kitchen! Only two people in this casa
so it WILL be kept cleaner than that other pigstye...
So its beginning to look a lot like Christmas down here in Chile. Its about 30 degrees (Celcius) and super sunny! We also FINALLY moved our casa! We now only live like five minutes away from our sector instead of half an hour! We moved in today so I will be able to tell you more about how its going next week. 
Well this week was a week full of fun and service. First of all, we thought we were going to move out earlier in the week, like Wednesday, so we didn`t buy any food because we thought we would buy some after we moved. We have been surviving on whatever we can find for the past week. We also didn`t make it to the plaza last monday so we didn`t take out any money. This means that we didn`t have money for bus tickets or fast offerings so it looks like I have to pay mine this next week. 
Some awesome flowers we found in Manzanal
On Tuesday we didn`t actually have a service so that was kind of lame, but we did have correlaciĆ²n and that was good. That`s a meeting with the Hermanas and our ward mission leader. There were a lot of other people there so we ended up just singing Christmas songs for an hour or two. It was a fun waste of time. 
On Wednesday we had divisions again and I went to Manzanal with Elder Heap. That was interesting because I was in the CCM with Elder Heap and neither of us know the Manzanal sector or spanish very well. 

Our new bathmat -
Our bathroom is too small to get a picture of lol

On Thursday we had a service kind of. We were helping the Eberhard`s move some stuff into our casa. We had to move a refridgerator, beds, and a ton of other stuff to the fifth floor of an apartment complex. Then we went shopping for stuff we thought we might need (like a bathmat). Then we had a Noche de Hogar with the familia Camargo. I love the Camargos, they are pretty awesome. The Noche de Hogar was a little weird though because it was the Camargos, Elder Smith and I, and the Hermanas, and he taught the importance and role of marriage in the world. We all sat there and it was weird, but good. 

Friday we had a service with Clementina Galarce. We went to town on her yard pulling out weeds with shovels and picks and stuff. There is so much to do that we are going back tomorrow too. Then we had a Noche de Hogar with the old people who live alone in our ward. That was good. Then we tried to teach a Less Active about praying in the name of Jesus Christ and not in the name of the Father and of the Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. He just got offended and mad at us so oh well. 
Our new study room -
Smith caught me in a pose transfer so I just look super gayyyyy
On Saturday we had a service with the Sandovals. We were told that we were going to move some stuff for a little bit, so we just wore church clothes with a shirt on over it. It turned out to be that we destroyed a huge brick wall and had to destroy all the bricks and mortar. My shoes and other clothes got destroyed. Then we had lunch and started our fasts. Then we got invited to the Camargos again for a birthday party Noche de Hogar for Hermana AmpuƱo`s birthday. We fasted through the burgers and cake while everybody made fun of us. It was good though, we had a good time.
Sunday was good. We had a choir practice after church for like two and a half hours. That was about it. Well this week was good. All we know about Skype is that we get to make a call for one hour on Christmas day.  Oh two highlights of the week: There was a knife fight in Rancagua Sur, the place where we spend the most of our time. I`ve also been going through a sleepy period these days and I fell asleep during a lesson. It was just a visit with an old member so it was fine he didn`t care. Well, that`s about it, I love you guys and will see you soon.
