Letter from 9/7/15

Hey yáll! 

This week has been super-fast and has been a ton of work! We are working super hard, speaking a lot of Spanish! I don´t have a lot of time to do anything else except on p day.

Sorry for the short message on Tuesday. My comp, Elder Haynes is great! The work is progressing and we are contacting a lot of people. He is from Florida and has been out for about 14 months. He has served in quite a few areas around here and has been here in Laja for about 2 months. 

The area is so sick! It is so stinkin ghetto! The people are super awesome too! All the terrain is like Seattle, super steep and really small. It looks a lot like Idaho in some ways. Not sure if I told you but we went to the top of Laja at the top of the cellphone towers. It was so beautiful! Just green hills and beautiful scenery for miles! It was awesome! Today we went to Antuco, this super huge volcano! Though we kind of ran into a blizzard instead of nice sunshine....I’ll send pics!

The ward is so cool! I got to present myself in testimony meeting yesterday and I got to know a lot more people through church and through almuerzo (lunch) too! Oh yeah, we don’t have dinners here only a small breakfast, almuerzo and then they take dinner at the end of the day at like 9. It’s weird and I am always hungry...but I am still alive.

THE FOOD IS INCREDIBLE!!!!!!! I feel so fat after almuerzo but then of course am starving like an hour later....but it´s all well! We have tons of chicken, meat, empanadas, rice, papas, vegies, and tons and TONS of PAN!!! By far (sorry mom) the best I have ever had in my life!

I love you all! And hope you are doing amazing! Please also could you keep Hermana Marta in your prayers? She is a recent convert and is going through some tough times. Her daughter is dying from a hemorrhage in her brain and she lost her husband about 4 months ago´s not good. Please keep her in your prayers... i love you and take care!!!

Elder Callister
