                                                                  We've arrived in Chile!!!
Here we are with the elders and sisters who came from the MTC in Santiago, except for the 2 Americans who came from the Mexico City MTC.  President and Sister Dalton/UT are in the middle with us.  Unfortunately, I don't remember all the names of the missionaries.  The Latins come from 
 Brazil, Ecuador, Columbia, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, and Chile.  Quite a mix!

The rock formation behind us is called El Portal.  It was a beautifully clear day.

Pleasant, in the middle of the state of UT.  The Peterson's, serving in the Chivate, Philippines mission.  They're from Las Vegas.

Same district with our afternoon teacher, Sister Mindee Sharp.  She served in one of the Santiago, Chile missions.  We really enjoyed our time with getting to know all of them.

We'll be serving in the Antofagasta, Chile Mission.  We're enjoying our stay here.  There are 4 couples in our district.  One couple will be serving from their home in central Utah, one going to the Philippines, one serving at a military base in Maryland, and us.  Four couples are going to Europe, 1 couple to Africa,  1 couple to Samoa, and none to Australia, nor New Zealand.  The majority are serving in the US and Canada.  Several couples will be working with the young single adults and on military bases.

We leave on Monday for Chile!!

We're busy packing up and getting ready for our next mission.  We enter the MTC in Provo on Monday, January 19, 2015!!  Needless to say we're busy cleaning the house, packing our suitcases, and dotting our "i"s and crossing our "t"s.
