this can't be good...

Hola mis amigos. Things in Chile are going well with the exception of a one minor issue. For the past week, I've had no problems whatsoever with any food or drink here. But this afternoon at lunch that all changed. To make a long story short, I think I've caught this stomach virus thing that Kelley gave to Reid and Reid gave to me. I slept most of the afternoon and I'm still having trouble keeping water down. I really hope it gets better soon so I can truly make the most of my time here.

Other than that, things are going quite well here. I have loved doing things with the AFCer's here each day. We've spent each day at schools with children teaching English through games, conversation, and interaction. It's been a blessing to see these children and get to know them. We used this time to make contacts with local youth to come in the afternoons to play more games and get acquainted with the church. The evenings usually consist of hanging out with the Jovenes and youth group at the church building. On Thursday night we went to a para-church (made up of an interdenominational campus ministry out of Georgia) They had a really raw worship time, a meal, and time to just kick it with local university students. Very cool outreach.

We got a great deal of rain here this week, which equals mountain snow. On Friday morning, we awoke to a breathtaking view of the mountains that surround the city. You can't see them through the smog unless the rain pushes it away. This clear morning was a great encouragement for me. I will post some pics. Anyway, I hope to go skiing with the Aggies on Monday or Friday and also spend this week serving the local people alongside them. I will get back soon! Peace.

Hey! Yeah that's cool, I figured you were busy getting ready for your trip! Hope you get to feeling better soon, but otherwise it sounds like it's going great! We need to get together when you're back to catch up before you head back to school...

Be careful out there!
