Dear Friends and Family :)
This week I found my favorite food in Chile :) It's called Pascualina. It's like a chicken pot pie but not exactly the same because it has sausage instead of chicken :P

POR LO QUE LA BANDERA CHILENA NO ES COPIA DE NADA. solo coincidencia my friend!..
Mark's translation for me: hmmm, I was informed I was wrong :P He corrected what I heard that the Chilean flag was not designed after the Texan flag because the Texan flag came after the Chilean flag. Thanks Gabriel!
I forgot to write the theme of General conference last week. The theme that I felt was the central message was: Strengthen your Families, Lift up your brothers and neighbors, Brace yourselves in your testimony because the storm is coming.
FASFA?!? What do I need to do for that and the Scholarship at BYU? Could you look into that? And could you look into when I have to go back to school. I signed a contract when I postponed my attendance that I would return before a specific semester or forfeit my acceptance at the University. I contacted Scott Self my roommate from my Freshman year and we are most likely going to room together again. I need a job when I get back home to make what I can till I leave.
Transfers are every 6 weeks. This transfer ends on the 3rd of November. The missionaries going home should get home the Wednesday after the end of the change. I worked it out once and I should be home the 15th of July 2014. Your going to have to check that.
I know I need to start planning these things perhaps we can talk a little more detailed in the Skype call in December.
Could you send me a photo of the board you made for genealogy? There is a sister in my branch that wants to see/copy you :P (yes I brag about you)
I love you guys
All is well
