Hello family,So in Copiapo I left the boots I bought for the mud, a blanket, a jacket, some hangers, and I cant remember if I left anything else. In the pension here we still drink purified water from a 20L bottle (bidón) that we have but if we are offered tap water here it is not as dangerous as it is in other cities of the mission.
There are less hills here than in my other sectors but everytime we go down to centro we have to go down this long thing of stairs. I have an ingrown toenail so it hurts to go down so many stairs but it is still better than paying a taxi all the time. My sector here is larger than my sectors before as well. There are a lot of houses but on the edge of the sector there are more rural houses that have animals. I still have not gone up to that part of the sector but Elder Holloway says that there are pigs, sheep, horses, llamas, chickens, ect.
Tell Dad thanks for getting some dates set up for me. Just make sure she can speak spanish because I am not sure how my english will be when I get home. I hope Dad is able to outshoot the firearms safety instructor again. And at least he is in the doghouse, the dogs here in Chile just live in the street.
I love you guys and I hope you can get done all the things you need to. Take care and know that I am praying for you.
Con mucho amor, Elder Brock Hunter
