Family and friends,
so, i am here in chile! i made it safely. i met up with other elders and sister along the way. in total, there were about 8 of us... i will send pictures later.
in the last two days i have had about 3 hours of sleep and still haven't had a real meal. they gave us a fake dinner on the plane which wasn’t that good but, it helped. after we landed, we had to go through security which basically meant people where yelling at us in spanish and they were getting really frustrated because we wouldn’t obey. i guess it’s going to be like this for the next 6 months. then we met some church worker that drove us to a mission housing place. we will be staying here rather than the mtc cause there isn’t enough room in the mtc (missionary training center). things are a lot different down here. the drivers are terrible! no one knows how to drive. i swear i almost saw 6 accidents on the way over here. things look ok...i should survive. i have to go and i love you all!
There is a documentary of that follows the lives of two brothers over the period of twenty years. One of the brothers was called to serve a mission to Chile. On the clip below, it shows some of his experiences in Chile. As I watched the clip, I thought about Sam having the same experiences in Chile.
