ok, first order of buisness is i am heading up north. i got transfered and i am going to the heart of rancagua, a sector called Recreo. im pretty excited about that. i talked to some people that served in the sector and it sounds like it is good. im am being placed with a companion from peru that has 2 transfers left in the mission. his name is elder Ancajima. i'm excited to have my spanish improve by having a peruvian companion.
it was sad to say goodbye to everyone yesterday in chuch. i have really come to love the people here. i really couldnt have asked for a better first sector. i have learned a lot here. there is a special place in my heart for the city and people of san javier. when i got set apart, i thought it was going to be hard for me to love a group of peple that i don t even know. i cant believe i said that. that was really selfish and dumb of me. the love that i have for these people is to great to describe.
it was especially sad saying goodbye to the sister that was baptized last month. she is doing so well. she has plans to go to the temple in 2 weeks. she paid her tithing and fast offerings yesterday. plus she bore her testimony. i am so happy for her. i hope i have a chance to come back to san javier later in my mission to see her.

it is going to be weird going to the city. here down south it is all just campo. i dont know what the word is for it in english. it is kinda like farmland but it is also the culture. i dont really know how to describe it.
there isn't anything else to write about. i am excited for the adventure that lays ahead of me. i know that im going to learn a lot this next change. it all starts tomorrow at 8:30 on the 4 hour bus ride.
thanks for all of your prayers. i know that this chuch is true.
