News of the day is....

Can anyone take a guess?

No, Hans did not propose. That's weird. And, he's orange. I try to stay away from fake bakers....

"On Friday, I will be here! My mind is so fried I don't even know what to say, that's all I have to say." p.s. that's Chile in case anyone couldn't see that.
I drove up from school and Sophie comes running out of the house and tell me "Austin is leaving on Thursday!" I am very sad but, it needs to happen. My mother has long been wanting a mute button. She is sad, especially since he leaves and then I leave. It will just be Her and Dad and Sophie. She thinks it will be quiet but I don't think so. I must admit, it has been absolutely amazing to have him home. I will miss his constant commentary in my life and will miss how he can make me pretty much pee my pants talking about snakes and bones. But quite honestly, it's time for all of us to move on.

Well, Goodnight!

So now I get to say a little bit, I can't say that I have loved being at home, but I can say that I wouldn't go back and change my experience. There have been days when i banged my head against the wall and wished that it had never happened. I definetely had a few days when I asked why to the heavens and raised my fist in anger, but I know that it was all for a purpose that i will probably never fully comprehend. I can say that God lives and that I was able to renew friendships and develop some new ones while I have been home....I cannot deny that God's hand has been in this whole thing from the minute that my mission president called me on the phone in Santiago and told me I was going home. I guess if I had to really say anything about the whole thing it would be that you can be doing everything right and then you wake up one day and you're on fire........GI JOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I get to go back, but it still boggles my mind that in a few days I will be wearing a plaque again and speaking spanish and walking through the streets of Santiago talking to people about the Gospel. I am returning to the same mission but it will not be the same, at least not everything.

P.S. Nobody want to know what to do wit de busrida!
