Nate was robbed on Friday night and had to send a letter to the mission president about the incident so he forwarded it on to Will. At the top he says "Hey my cool experience-dad tell mom all is fine!!

Well President,

What happened was, i was on splits with Elder Morris cause he was in the hospital, and they had an appointment, and the Zone Leaders couldn't split with them. So we helped out. We had gotten back late, so my comp. told me to just come and sleep there in Chia, because we also had baptism clothes they needed. So we passed by our house in Cedros about 8:30 and left to go catch trasmilennial, to catch the bus to chia, and we walked for the canal. It is about a 100 yard stretch to Calle 170, and we had always walked along there, because always lots of people, all lit with lights and never been a problem. And well the 2 dudes were just walkin on the other side of the sidewalk, and about 10 feet in front of us they took a huge step sideways and just started saying money, cell phone, NOW and so i reached for my wallet and pulled out my 9 mil which was all i had, and the other dude pulled a knife on Elder Morris and he didn't have time to just pull his money out so he just gave him his whole wallet, and they wanted the cell phone but i thought Elder Morris had it, and he thought i had it and well they wanted to be quick. so that was about it, it was over in about 30 seconds, and we were just astounded. But with the knife, we didnt want problems. After, we were talking and we think we got robbed with a butter knife, but butter knife or not, it isnt worth the money to find out. so we are fine, and all is well. ok well talk to you later, thanks for your love and concern. You may share this email with your wife. ok Love elder Naegle
