Happy Dia Del Trabajador

Well it is the beginning of fall here after all. And what better way to celebrate Labor Day than with a day off work, so you can go downtown and... start a riot, walk around naked with burning flags and destroy stuff. All the action was just two blocks from where I live! "Bomba Lacrimogena" is among the many new words I have been learning here in Chile. Luckily I left early in the morning to climb a mountain with some friends. With a minimum wage of $247 a month clearly there is need for change. Maybe some of the leaders we will influence on campus in Chile in the coming years will help bring change so the workers in Chile can have good jobs and a fair wage. I hope that we can see Matthew 5:16 being realized in this an many other ways.
