May the Fourth Be With You...

Cesar's baptism
Dear Familia y Amigos,

This week (seems pretty weird to say this seeing that today is Thursday) was pretty interesting. Changes, new missionaries, leaving missionaries, and a Baptism!

Elder Lastra left.  Now it's just me and Elder Lozano. We'll be seeing a lot of each other anyway since this is Elder Lastra's last change. It's Elder Lozano's last change as well. Also, Elder Hancock, the Elder who I used to live with in Amengual, is the new pentionist with Elder Schneider. "God Bless America!"**
Fun in the office

We are responsible for picking up the new missionaries from the MTC in Santiago. Seven got here this Tuesday and it was an interesting experience to say the least. Pretty sure the only thing that one of the gringos learned in the MTC was how to say "¿Cu├índo es P-day?"  It was a really cool atmosphere though.  It made me feel like it was yesterday that I got to the field. It was a strange contrast between that and the posterior day you'll see.

On Monday we dropped off elder and sister missionaries that were finishing the mission at the airport and coordinated their travel, which was a little bit stressful. We had one missionary that had to leave at 5:00 in the morning and another whose flight was at 1:00 in the morning the following day. Who needs sleep anyway?

Cesar got baptized! It was a great experience because tons of people came to see him! I attached a photo of the giant breakfast we had afterwards with the ward.

May the fourth be with you,
Elder Hale
