Hola Everyone

 Well this week went pretty dang fast. Elder Cano and I get along great! He isn't dead at all (so far) so that has been a huge help! I live in a house with 5 other Elders. One of them is Elder Gillens (Buhl) and another is Elder Loar (Nampa). We all get along really well and have a good time. I am in a ward that has about 120 people that go with about 1000 inactives, so...lots of work to do. My sector is really big. Probably 2X the size of Licantén so lots more people to teach haha. All 6 of us pertain to the same ward so thats interesting. The church building is very small for so many people. About 15-20 people have to stand up every Sunday. We are pretty much in a whitewash because my companion doesn't know the sector very well. He had to work in another sector and take care of a sick missionary (taking turns with the others in the house as well). So we have been walking and contacting alot but we have been able to find a few people to teach. We found a lady named Carolina on Saturday. She is catholic and we really focused on the BOM and Moroni 8. She came to the conclusion that her baptism isn't valid. She has a baptismal date for 12-28-2013. We also left a video called "Together Forever" for her to watch. She and her 18 year old daughter watched it and called us to invite us to eat lunch with them today but they had to cancel. But we're going back there tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes. Chileans don't celebrate Thanksgiving so I'll be without turkey on Thursday. Thats about it for this week. I love and miss you all and hope that you have a great week!

 With love,
 Elder Jayson Welker
