Este semana ha sido la Mejor semana en todo de mi Misión!! Fue tan genial!! Yo estaba tan Feliz con todo que.... Oh wait, you guys don't know Spanish, well... A few of you guys do... ;)
We'll get to that mas adelante!! California!! Super cool!! Sounds like you guys had a blast!! With two mission reunions!! One for Brandon's mission, and one for mine! Hope they were both awesome!! Super jealous that you guys got to ride bikes there in Newport, that definitely was the last time that I rode a bike!! Angels?? Way to kill them Red Sox in the end!! That is my team!!!! I don't even want to ask about the Crab Cooker, but just know that in a year we have to go, because you will all be surprised with what I will eat there! :)
Anyways, I am glad that ya'lls had a good week there, because we have had one Amazing week here as well!! We had SO much success!! But Cami told me that she got to see you guys and that she got to ride the Moto before I did.... Man.... 11 months... Just kidding, I am NOT counting down at all! Especially after this past week!!
We'll just start with going down the list of days that we had!!
After writing you guys last week, we went back to the house to clean up and make sure all was well, before p-day ended. Then around 8 we had a lesson, but with our Neighbor!! We share a house here. Its HUGE!! The best house I have had in the Mission, and its HUGE!! In the front there is a store, which is on the first floor, and then there is our house in the middle, which is above the store, and then we also have the downstairs of the house, which is below our neighbor, but when we had to pay for the water bill the other day, we share water with our neighbor, and so we went to talk to her about it, and then I started to talk to her to see if we could get to know her and come talk to her about why we were in Chile, so we set up a dateto come, and we went! Guess what, SHE WAS THERE! *Gasp* So we went with our Ward Mission Leader, and we taught the restoration! It was super sweet!! We then set up a lesson for to go and teach her again and give her a Book of Mormon, but she wasn't there.... That was a bummer. But we talked with her as she was leaving to go visit her family in Puerto Montt for the weekend, so we gave her the Book of Mormon, and then we set up a lesson for last night. The lesson last night was AMAZING!! She was there and we went with our branch president who is 28 years now oh and by the way her name is Karen and she is 25 years, but it was SUCH a Spiritual lesson!! We are super excited to go back to her house to see if she prayed/read the Book of Mormon! So please keep Karen in your prayers!!
(I just received palos from a past Zone Leader from Coyhaique, I was wearing a hat, and I guess you can't wear hats... Poop)
Later in the day we had a stake youth activity, for the young men!! We went to Rahue for the stake center and it was an activity that the young men could accompany a pair of Missionaries to do some Missionary work! Presidente Obeso was there and it was awesome!! After they had three sectors that we could go to, Las Vegas, Rahue Alto, or.... CAMINO REAL!!!!! So I was just praying that I could go to Camino Real... and I GOT THE CHANCE!!! I got to go with Elder York and Carlitos Chaipul!! Oh man it was so awesome!! We went first to a cita with an investigator that Elder Whitaker and I contacted!! They are doing really well and are investigating the church a bunch now!! But they were busy, but I got to talk to Amparo which was sweet!! After, we went to the Mom of the Twins who are now both on Missions, took a picture and that was fun, after we went to the house of Daniela, who we went to the water falls with, and I gave them a picture of me with them from last Christmas, and then we ended the day with Familia Delgado!! It was so amazing! I definitely felt Trunky for my sector, but it felt just like yesterday I was working there!! I was super sad that I couldn't go and see the Chaipul family, or Makarena and Andres, but its okay!
But yesterday at the end of the week, when we were planning for our numbers, I counted and saw that we had a BUNCH of success this past week... Drum Roll please.... 15 with Member!!! The most I have had my entire mission!!! 5 with baptism date, and its just going to get better and better here on out!! We are planning on having a baptism for Andreas, he is 9 years and is gonna be Baptized on the 30th if he passes his interview, so keep him in your prayers!! :)
Then today, we are here in Osorno, and we just got finished playing Basketball, oh it felt so good to just relax and play after this past week of working so much!! It was Amazing!! :) Although Elder Walker ended up beating my team again by 1 point... Shoot. Just like when I was in Training... ;)
But now it is time, to go suit up and put my Armor (White shirt, tie, and name tag) back on and head back out into the field for more War against the evil, and bring the World His Truth!!
I Love you all so much, thank you for the prayers and everything that you do for me!! :)
Trying to make you Proud,
