In case anyone is wondering, our good friend Garrett is in Chile right now serving a mission. In the Concepcion South Mission, which is right near where the earthquake on Saturday hit. Not a fun day. We spent it around the tv watching the news and calling the church offices every hour. All of the missions had reported by about 11 am and no missionaries were hurt except for the Concepcion South mission. They were without power and had no way of contacting anyone. So someone found the mission president on a bike checking on all the missionaries. We didnt hear any news until about 6. Garrett is fine, and actually his zone leader called his mom today to reassure him and gave her a number to call him. He was so far south and in a rural part of the country that it didnt effect him much. Also, there was a letter that was forwarded to us from the Santiago temple presidents wife that talked about the temple. The only damage that was done to the temple was that Moroni lost his trumpet! No missionaries in Chile were injured. I know a lot of people were praying for Garrett and I know his mom was very thankful. Prayers are answered.

Cute Peyton

Melis took these for me. Seriously, is she not the cutest thing? She is such a good baby. I read in a magazine once that its normal for babies to cry up to 3 hours a day. Peyton cries maybe that much in a week, if that. Shes the bomb.
