So here we have the start of a new change in the mission chile Santiago Norte. Lots of things have changed. We only have 176 missionaries in the mission (this time last year we had like 220) so sectors have been closed or put together and they put a couple of the zones together. We´re a small mission now. But also here in San Felipe we had some changes too. Elder Martinez left… And Elder Sanchez has arrived. He´s from Santa Cruz…. Argentina (CHE) .
Elder Martinez … and Elder Sanchez
He´s really cool. He just finished his training. So he´s got a good three months in the mission. He just got here to his second sector and I will be his second comp. Oh yea and he’s my first latin comp. ¡¡¡¡POR FIN!!!! only took 378 days here in Chile to get a native Spanish speaker as a companion.

I don´t know how many of you are familiarized with the accents of south american Spanish speakers but the Argentinos have to be the most famous. Every time there is an “ll” or a “y” the pronounce it with a very distinct “SSHH”. And the Chileans aren´t a huge fan of it … they´re actually not big of fans of the Argentinians in general.. But I think its awesome.
Also The US is playing Argentina in the Copa America tonight… Companionship rivalry…. (pray for a tie..)

My comp shared this last night and I really like it.
THe wise man builds his house upon the rock.
The foolish man builds his house upon the sand.
When the rain comes, the house on the rock stays up, and the house on the sand falls.
He who listens to and obeys the word of the Lord and the principles of the gospel builds his house on rock… He who does not builds upon sand.
Rain and wind (trials) will always come, if your house (testimony) is built on rock (follow the teachings of the savior) it won´t fall down.
