Hey what’s up,
So yea there was an earthquake here last night. Me and my companion were sitting on a bench in a park and all of a sudden everything started shaking, cars were shaking, streetlamps, it lasted for like 30-40 seconds. but no one was killed or injured, at least that i know of.
Yea i can’t believe it’s my birthday on Wednesday. I got my pants yesterday, they are pretty nice. That’s awesome that you got a calling, it would be nice to get a break from mine sometimes.
I can’t wait till it gets colder here. Right now I’ve got some kind of sinus infection. It sucks. Our only investigator won’t be getting baptized for a while now, so now we are able to focus more on some less actives that we have been working with.
Anyways, i didn’t get moms letter yet, oh well, but I’ll write you all more later.
Love you all

Dear Parents and Families,
You will hear reports that Chile experienced a 7.2 magnitude earthquake today, Sunday, March 25, 2012. We certainly felt the quake in the Santiago East Mission, but we suffered no damage, and we are all safe and protected here. Today's quake was near Maule which is approximately 130 miles South of Santiago. We are grateful for your consistent prayers and for your love and support. We are thankful for the opportunity we have to serve here in this beautiful country, with our Missionary Angels, and we love the Chilean people very much.
Our missionaries are prepared for this type of occurrence, and we know that when we are prepared, we need not fear (D&C 38:30). As many of you know, we completed a mission tour last month. President Laycock and I visited every single apartment in our mission. We prayed with every companionship in their apartment, and we asked for a blessing of safety to be upon each apartment. We requested and confirmed that every missionary update and/or prepare their 36 hour kit. Also, during the last two weeks, we updated and delivered a copy of our mission emergency plan to each missionary. Our missionaries are prepared. They are brave and strong and capable in every way. We love them dearly, and will continue to serve beside them as we strive to do the Lord's work in the Lord's way.
We will continue to pray for those who live South of our Mission who may be affected, and we will update you as we learn more.
Presidente y Hermana Laycock
