Letter from April 2nd, 2012

Taylor is doing well and has spent much of his email time helping me to figure out his fall schedule.  Here is today's email and a short part of last week's email about the 7.2 earthquake that hit last Sunday.  For those of you who are thinking that his are always short, you are right; this is even shorter :).  Thank you for all of your support for Taylor.

So, the earthquake was actually quite fun. We were in a cita with the couple missionaries when it happened. It lasted about a minute and I found it really cool. We actually thought that it was going to get worse, but it didn´t. Oh, and we just kept going on with our lesson right after. All in all, pretty fun.

Random story from today, we were robbed by somebody while we were playing soccer. They took the backpacks of 2 missionaries and stole our phone. The thing that stinks about it is that we lost all of our numbers of people in the sector. But, oh well, that is how Chile is.

We have also seen how the gospel has started helping a family we found. One day a 14 year old flyte (roughly translated: gangster, but it isn´t the same) contacted us in the street--which doesn´t usually result in anything. Long story short is that his whole family is now listening to us. They are really humble people and have all started participating in the lessons. Hopefully it will turn out well.

Well, I hope everybody has a great week!


Elder Taylor Thomas
