Dear Familia Y Amigos,
During my mission I've seen this giant temple in Maipu and now it is in my sector, so we went there today. It was pretty cool. I'd give you a long description but since I took tons of photos, that would probably be more efficient.
|Templo Votivo Maipú|
Up on top of the temple there is a viewing room where you can go and take a look around the city. You can see the Cordillera really well.

It was the Fourth of July this week, but nobody celebrates that here. Can you believe it? I can't. :o

Elder Yriarte is in Calera de Tango. If you remember, the church building for Calera de Tango is in Malloco. That is about 35 minutes in a bus from where we work. Elder Yriarte brought nine people to church last week. I about fell off my chair and fainted when I found out. If Elder Goodrich and I brought two people to church, we were happier than a Haitian in a sauna.
I had a cool experience this week, but I'll share it next week.
