Well this morning I had a little interesting venture. Actually Saturday night I decided I wanted to try something new. I was able to get ahold of a small teflon pan and a spatula in order to cook my eggs in the mornings. A few days later (Saturday) I was looking at the pan and spatula sitting in the kitchen and then the thought that general conference is coming up popped into my mind. I then remembered the delicious tradition of making omelets that dad always does. So I took the honor of buying a pepper (that had half red half green... fairly interesting), an onion, a tomato, thickly sliced "bologna" type meat because that was what was available to chop into cubes of ham, cheese, and some bread. I had quite the fun time making omelets this morning. And Im sure the other three missionaries I lived with enjoyed them too. They turned out quite well. I sent some pictures of the experience for you all to enjoy.

An interesting experience we had was that we found a woman collapsed on the side walk and as we started talking to her she went unconscious and moments later started having convulsions. During these events my companion along with another gentleman who had stopped by held her still so she wouldn´t get hurt. I called up an ambulance but they said they didn´t have anyone available and wouldnt be sending anyone. How useful. We gave her a blessing and immediately the convulsions stopped. She eventually came into consciousness and just stared at us for a little while. In the end she invited us to her house but lived outside of our area so we wrote down her address and passed it on to the missionaries of that area. Was a neat experience, especially being the third week of my companions time in Chile.
