Wk 15 - pictures!

Companion: Elder Incil
Area: Andalein

all the boys in my zone

this week is there independence day on the 18 so there is a lot of flags up right now

we flew kites today and there was a horse and naked statue so it was pretty funny

i am using pics from elder hancock.
the dog is always sitting on this wall and we call it the spider dog

All right this week was pretty cool but man being a missionary is pretty tiring! haha we did a service project with a bunch of missionaries and it was way cool!! we all saw some graves that were over 200 years old!! this cemetery was huge. i saw bones of graves that were cracked open. i saw a dude's femur and a skull. it was pretty sketchy! but yeah the service project was pretty fun!!!

 just so you know that the drunk guys is on a daily basis kind of thing! we had a run in with a drunk guy last night and it was pretty funny because he had no idea what he was doing and man does their breathe stink!! haha he asked if i was from the US and it was kind of an obviously answer! haha we just gave him a card and he kissed the picture of Jesus and it was pretty funny! we just said bye and walked away. he wanted to stay and talk awhile!.

One cool thing that happened this week is there is a less active named Juana and she hadn't been to church in so long. her family isn't members but she hadn't been to church in a long time!! we taught a lesson to her and she attended church this past sunday which was pretty cool! it was cool to see a person who decided that they needed to change and they actually acted on it! 

each week here is long but i do love being here. all the work you put in is all worth it! even when you cant find anybody and all your appointments are falling through it is still nice to be here because i know that i need to learn something about patience or i don't know! one thing that i want to share is from my patriarchal blessing and it is the peace that i have in my life will have to do a lot with the peace that is at home. that right there brings me a ton of comfort because it is very true for me. my family is so important to me and i do love all you guys very much!! i hope all of you have a good week!! 

Elder Smoot

ps. i swear jenna has a baptism every week!! haha i think those miracle baptisms happened here a while ago and now my job is to keep them going to church! 

this is some Chilean food and it is pretty dang good 
lunch at the bishops house
 and elder hancock was on a mini cambio or splits so he wasn't there.
a horse in the front of our house. this is pretty common as well
the view from presidents house-this is where the temple of Concepcion will be as well by the white building
we had interviews at presidents house this past week. he lives in the tiniest house!(he has the 5th floor and  his house is so nice!)

helping hands is a thing with mormons that i didnt really know about but we took flowers off the graves of people in chile. it is weird that they dont burry people they just stack them up haha 

we did a service project for helping hands.

*a day in your life?! 

wake up and i at least do 50 push ups and 100 sit ups because i don't really want to get too big but today i did 100 each and we eat and shower and get ready and study at 8 30 for an hour and we have companionship study after that and we talk about some things and plan for the lessons for the day and we leave for work a little bit before lunch and lunch is at 1 30 everyday and we do that for an hour and we go to the house after and i study spanish and we go to work at 4 because i need to practice my spanish for 30 minutes more. and we go to work after that and we get back at the house at 9 30 to 10 and we plan for our day and get ready for bed and we can eat a little something and we go to bed by 11.
