This whole week we did not have electricity in our apartment. Last Sunday, as a Christmas gift, a semi truck carrying coca cola knocked our connection to the power lines down. The whole week we were trying to get the electricity company to come and get things fixed. In the meanwhile we were getting by with just a little extension cord from the neighbor and we had to choose what to plug in and use. It wasn't until yesterday that they were able to come and hook us back up. So now I can wash my clothes, put things in the fridge, use the air conditioner, turn on the lights, and use and iron all at the same time. I am so very grateful for electricity. What a smart invention. 

Some other highlights of the week were:
-On Wednesday we went to a daycare for kids in difficult situations and played and sang with them for a few hours. It was a lot of fun and kind of exhausting

-I got to play basketball with a group of christian boxers that my comp and I have been teaching. We played north Americans versus Argentine's and we won twice but then they beat us in the last game. They were pretty happy about that.

-New years eve we decided to share an asado with the pizarro family. It was a lot of fun and right at midnight the skyline lit up with fireworks.

In sacrament meeting this sunday I realized that I only have like a handful of days left here. It is the strangest thought. But I am determined to make these last days the best they can be. I am determined to work with all the time that the Lord gave me. I know that this is his work, and I know that it is a work of miracles. I also know that miracles do not come passively or by chance, but rather the Lord always requires our faith and our righteous actions. I hope to see many miracles in these last few days.

Love you all, have a great week

It´s good to hear that everyone´s doing great. It´s also nice to see the pictures of the snow. It makes me feel a little cooler here. 
Here's a picture of me here in the cyber cafe as I write. Pretty darn hot. 

I love you guys, thanks for always encouraging me to work.
