this past week we saw a stupid psycho miracle!!! so get this. its about 8 at night, its starting to get death cold, and i woke up kind of sick. we went out and tried to get to all the citas that we had, but all of them fell. my comp and i though that it would be a good idea to try and contact some more around the block before we went to the last cita at 9 (which by the way, also fell). we had a future named Horacio that was contacted around a year ago, and we thought that we would try it for a hot second. so we went to this house and we knocked like twice. i was annoyed a little, so i grabbed a rock and started pounding the metal gate to make a super loud clanging noise, and out came a Venezuelan lady. we asked her for horacio, and out from the back came the man himself! he started "speaking to us in english" and i was kind of doubtful in the beginning just because every chilean tries to show off there mad english skills to only mess with us, but after caving into the bait he threw us, he then started speaking perfect english. I WAS SHOOK. apparently, he lived in the states for like 9 years and canada for like 5. he has a company selling wifi routers in his house and he imports them from china. he also makes houses for the venezuelan immigrants that come here to chile so they can have a place to stay while they are looking for jobs. hes literally the coolest guy ever!! and hes a member!! his wife isnt and none of the people in his houses arent. he says he gives out books of mormons to the people that help him build houses, and he says that he wants to come back to church and baptize his wife!!! AAH!!! sad that i might not be here for when his wife get baptized, but i am so grateful that we found these people! other than that, we are super excited to skype our moms this mothers day!
i have to scram right now though....we got this though guys! 5.5 more weeks for me to live in the the coolest city in Chile and be with the coolest people in santiago. so sad to be going here soon, but so fricken gratful that im here still!
