This week went by really fast. I had the experience of going on exchanges with an hermana who will be leaving the MTC in a few days. It feels like a couple of days ago that I was going on my first exchange in my last week in the MTC. We didn´t have many lessons this week. I´m coming to realize that everyone leaves Santiago in January to get out of the un-air-conditioned heat. The good news, though, is we found a man name Mauricio who is awesome! The bad news is he's leaving Santiago until the end of February. I´ll let you know how that goes a little later. 
Earlier in the week, we were contacting. I saw a man sitting on a park bench and felt we should go talk to him. It wasn´t until a few minutes into the conversation that I asked him his name, and it wasn´t until after that that I recognized his face as a man that I had met in some of my first days in the field. He´s a less-active member and has lost lots of weight from a sickness and I had only seen him past sundown before so I couldn´t see much of his face. But I remembered his name the whole time, trying to visit his house, but he was never there. We were able to get an appointment with him and talk with him yesterday. I know it´s his time to come back to church. It´s great to know that sometimes the Spirit can give little pushes like this to help out. 
Today my companion and I went up into the Andes with my companion from the MTC and her companion and our mission president and his wife. Our mission president said he would give 5mil (like 9 dollars) to anyone who catches a goat up there. Next thing I know I look over and my companion is hold a goat by his hind leg! Hahah. I was very impressed. Now she´s 500 pesos richer.
