Hola todos, no se si voy a tener la oportunidad para hablar en Inglés, no he hecho esto en como una semana completa ahora, y puede ser que he olvidado... Lo Ciento, posiblemente un traductor puede ayudarles entender este correo electrónico como Hno. Juan Becerra o Hno. Palma! ;)
Naw Just Joshin with ya bro!
Hey alls how you doing?? Wow, it has been an exciting week here in the Land of Volcanos... Yeah, we got Evacuated, and I kinda lost some clothing cause it got to out house and yeah... So maybe sending a few more white shirts to finish out the Mission Mom...?
Naw Just Kidding!! The Volcano is about 2 hours North of us, although it was splurging out at 10 Meters high and has now lowered to only 5 Meters, it could still go up again and blow up our entire city!!!!!
Nope another Joke.. But really though, the biggest thing that I noticed was that the air was dirty, but it just seemed like a hot summer day for me all week, that looked like we were in Vegas or Salt Lake or something. No biggie.
Now about coming here?? Well, if you guys really want to come, and meet people here, I would be happy to assist you in that journey, its all up to you guys! :) Now the only thing is with that, we were talking about it this past week, like last night, and if you guys want to come and pick me up, you would probably have to call the Mission office or something, so that you could tell them that you are gonna come and pick me up!! Because with the "Carta Moroni" from last cambio that was telling them all my info so they could get plane tickets bought in advance and what not, but really? Its all up to you guys! (Although there is always a chance of one of the other 1,300 Volcanos or Earth Quake, or Freezing to Death from a Down Pour of Frozen Rain!) ;)
The Feeling? I am not saying more until I get home, but no its not that big of a deal, so no worries Mom! :) I Just have No idea how to explain it... So that is why I need some more time still, but I dunno about Stress, because its been something from my entire mission, I felt it the most in Coyhaique!
Family history update? Well, with Benito its been Awesome! We haven't gotten any names on it yet, but EVERY time we are doing it with him, the guy is about 2 inches from the Computer screen and EVERY time he sees a name he knows like his parents, children, etc. He is like "THERE THEY ARE! THAT'S MY FAMILY!" I dunno how to describe it. I think if I were to say "Cute" I would technically lose my Man Card... So Not sure on that one... Anyways we are still working, its hard because I have never done it before until here in Valdivia, so I don't know the secrets and what not. About the Smoking, he had been done for at least one day, but we haven't seen him since Thursday, so we need to go pass by tonight!!
We actually had a cita set up with Diego and Joseline last night! But it fell through, so we'll see what we can do with the two of us!!
No Ensign yet, I haven't gotten mail for awhile, being up here in Valdivia, not in Osorno, you have to wait longer.. So we'll see how it goes, I mean we have interviewswith Pres. Obeso, so maybe that means he'll bring some with him! :) That would be nice (For more than one Reason)
Semi-homecoming huh?? Sounds like you guys are gonna be leaving again real soon then! ;) Sorry only a couple weeks at home, then you need to leave again!!
Dallas?? Send some Lovin to Logan for me! ;) I guess Allyson and Jedoni as well!
Oh and Dad? You have to record ALL the talks of the Boys comin home before me yeah?? I want to hear ALL their talks when I get home! :)
Now lets see, the only thing I haven't answered yet is talking about Elder Linares, my new companion!! Well as you can see in the photos, he sure isn't Gringo! He is from Peru, and was trained by my 4th companion Elder Vargas! He is super awesome! And Fun Fact?? He is gonna be finishing with Me!! (So yeah, this past week has probably been trunkier than normal...) Although we get ALONG GREAT! :)
Now to think about the week, we have had some new things this past week that our Zone Leaders want us to focus on. They want us to Fast once a week and focus on our Prayers more, and then to find at LEAST two REAL news, and lastly to have 10 families in teaching by the end of the Cambio. we'll see about that, of Investigators we only have 3 families at the moment, but if we can show our Faith we are gonna have 10.
ThenMorning, we didn't have our Weekly Planning, because we had to go to the Hospital, and that was fun... I had to get a small surgery because I... Just kidding (I can only imagine your face Mom...) My Companion had to come here, because he is having some Heart Problems right now. So we had to go to the hospital. There the enfermeda was there and her new companion, and her new companion was one of the hermanas in my last ward from Ovejeria!! So we had a good 30 minutes talking about how everyone is there!!
Then we had an intercambio with the Zone Leaders that day and I was with Elder Keetch, I have been with him as a Zone Leader now for the last 4 cambios! Hahaha it makes me laugh, but we worked with Benito, and then we went to the house of a menas activa familia and we read with Hna Jocelyn Jerez. She has 24 years and is Great! I didn't want to leave because I have wanted to work more with her! She was super great!before Elder Root left, we had lunch with them and then we read the 1Nefi 2-3 which was awesome and then we challenged them to see what happened in 1 Nefi 4 but when we went back of this past week to introduce my new comp. They still hadn't read, but then when we went she told us that SHE read, and had The Question about 1 Nefi 4 and then she said she read the others like 2-3 times and now has interest to keep reading!! WOOT!! that is JUST What I wanted! Then we finished the night with putting an investigator Jaime with fecha bautismal for the !! Woot! So we'll see how that goes!!
Lastly?? Last night we set up a cita with our new neighbors, we live next to 6 college students. We are gonna see if we are gonna have a party tonight!! You are gonna have to tell Niccole, Erik, Jesper, Kenji, and Cami that I am gonna be eating Sushi... I mean now that I like all foods why not?? We are gonna try and get to know them all!! I am super excited!1 Although its kinda weird, because they all seem to be my same age or YOUNGER. Man, I am Old guys.... I haven't even started college yet, that is in 5 months... Gah!!!
Anyways I Love you all so very much and hope you have a wonderful week!1 You are ALWAYS in my prayers! :)
Trying to make you the Proudest Family Ever,
Elder Connor Holt
