November 9, 2015

Well all in all this week was good but flew by so fast that i didnt even have time to blink and it was sunday. This week at first the big thing was that we had our mission Council and that was so awesome you really learn a lot of great things that you can apply in so many different ways in your life we have a lot of plans to help turn the mission into a machine to baptize. Also we talked alot about something super awesome that we are going to get to Elder Cook, and a few 70's in a few weeks because they will be coming to our mission and all the missionaries from the whole mission will be traveling down to antofagasta to see it so it will be expectacular and i am super pumped.

Also this week i am not going to lie i hate some weird fatty things this week. First of all we ate cow foot and the grossest part was they didnt peel of the skin part so it was all hairy on top of the rice i literally the first time in my mission after eating a little bit i couldnt do it and finished my rice and left the rest of the crap on the plate. Also to celebrate a baptism we had in the ward but from the other elders we bought 3 pichangas which are just basically frys, meat, and egg but these i thought would be normal size there normaly pretty big anyway but these suckers were enormous i felt as if i had entered into some eating contest for man vs food.

Also it was super fun today we woke up at 4 in the morning and we went with some investigators and hiked a huge mountain thats right next to the ocean so we had some good plans to get some shots of the sunrise and the ocean from up there but the sad part is we got to the top and it was completly covered in clouds but we had been promised from the investigator that when we get to the top will be able to see everything it was a lie. Although it was still super fun but after coming back down and seeing the path we took i am sure we took the hardest route up because it at some points was literaly 45* angle which i have photos to prove it.

Although as for the week and the work we decided to work and make sure that we are retaining all of our members and investigators so we met with a whole bunch this week and it was awesome we saw the attendance go up alot in the last two weeks its gone up 30 so thats great but we are still missing more. All in all we had a great week and i am super pumped for the next little while.

November 2, 2015

First HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! This week was super fun because i didnt feel like it was halloween at all until the day of so that was good because here in the mission its different although it was super fun we went to a party with some investigators and it was a blast we met a whole bunch of people around the block of where they live so that is cool and we will see if we can get over and teach them this week.
Also the other cool thing that happened is that finally we were able to move into the church building where we belong to because before we were attending another really far away because ours was under construction but this week finally we got back to our chapel and it was my first week there so it was cool and we had a way better attendance because everyone told us during the months that they will start going again when we go back to the church closer so it was a good sunday for that also we got to have fast and testimony meeting so that was cool and it was really incredible how much success we had after church we went out and found 4 new familys all in the same night it was awesome we are just waiting to get them into the font they are so awesome.
All in all it was really a great week and i saw alot of miracles with the lords hand in my life and i cant be any happier then where i am right now i love this work, the lord, and his people they frustrate me alot but they are really great and i love this gospel and i know that he prepares a way always if we ask in sincere prayer.

October 25, 2015

Well i am sorry i dont have a ton of time to write this week last week i had tons but this week we went on another trip with a sweet member brother Hurtado he is the best we went to a ton of little towns in the interior of chile in the straight desert but it was cool.

As for the week we had awesome success with finding through the people we have and doing what we like to call the chain of refrences where you go to a house you ask for a reference to another and you go there and do the same thing until doing that more than two, three, or more and by the end you find the person perfectly ready for the gospel its awesome. We found 9 this week and have been working our cans off to keep track of all the people we are working with.

All in all great week a lot of really fun times and hilarious moments with my comp we are passing it good. Also i am super happy and am excited for the next couple of weeks because we have found a lot but we are just trying to discern who is going to be the one in the end to be baptized and keep going strong.

Lots of love

This week was super fun we had ATON OF BLESSINGS. For example we found !!12!! new families they are super cool. Also things are going good here with them they are all like super prepared to hear the gospel. Also we got to spend our tuesday with our zone having our zone meeting it went good and it was really fun because we announced some great stuff that will be happening in this next month for our mission. We found out that we will be getting to see Elder Cook and some of the presidency from the area south america south, elder Suarez and elder Gonzalez they are all super awesome so i am super excited. Also we invited all our zone to be able to get some serious work done and we put big goals and we are super excited to see some baptisms in the next couple of weeks.

Also this week was known as the week of PAN DE PASCUA (FRUIT CAKE) This week my comp bought something quite strange it was fruit cake but mysteriously it was really good and it was super funny one morning my comp picks up the fruit cake and starts dancing and asks me if i see anything weird and looking up from my scriptures the first thing i say Pan de pascua and he just starts busting out laughing because i didnt realize it was his dancing that was weird it was the fact that he was dancing with pan de pascua haha it was a moment quite dumb but hilarious.

All in all great week also i just want you all to know that the plans they sent me i sent them to prep you guys so that whatever happens you know when i am getting back. ALthough it just makes me even more sad to think things are getting close although i am super excited to get out and work and i know that the things that are happening right now are things that i will only get to see for the next 2 months so i am really enjoying my time dont worry.

Love you all so much and remember that i love you and pray for you all and know the lord is blessing all of us daily.

Well this week was rough at first and then got better. Because, well at the beginning of the week i had to take care of all the tranfers of missionaries, missionary trainers, and we had our counsel with president so we had to be in the bus staion at like 1 in the morning because its like the only bus that comes so i had to be there like every night this week and it was terrible. Although, at the end of the week we had tons of fun and success so that was good so in the end it was all worth it.

i got my new comp and he is super weird but he makes me laugh a ton. Like the whole week I was laughing my butt off. Well my comp just came from the office and his name is elder erickson he has like 15 months so he has time. he is from st. george. We are both rocking it here in alto hospico we both are super animated and the members love it and can feel all the happyness that we have its super fun.

Also i am sorry that last week i didnt say much about general confernce because i was really sick and wasnt thinking right but as for general conference it was really an incredible experience that i learned a lot and got alot of inspiration for after the mission and for our zone and investigators it was really a full weekend of inspiration.

As for our investigators we are working with a ton of people so its hard to focus on just a few but for sure in the next couple of weeks we should be getting some of them married and baptized but the next couple of people will be tamara or dania they are both different girls that have different families and they both have big desires to be baptized but they have just a few problems so we have been waiting to see when we could get them ready but we will know next week.

So all in all it was a great week and love you all so much and hope the best for ya take care this week and remember to PONDERIZE

October 5, 2015

Well to be honest this was pretty rough haha because well first at the beginning of the week we were super good and working hard getting it done and then out of no where in the middle of the night i got like horribly sick and threw up all night. Then felt better and the next day still hurt my stomach but didnt need to throw up. But then i did again and this is how it went until today so it has been pretty bad but i talked to the doctor and they gave me some meds so lets hope that helps.

Also we got our cambios of course my comp was leaving because i had to kill him and that was really hard to be honest it made me trunky watching him say goodbye, packing the bags, and leaving it was rough because me and him got super close but its all good i will see him later. Although as for me i am staying in Alto Hospico and my new comp will be elder Erickson i know him because he was just barely in the office but i dont know him super well so it will be fun i am excited.

As for the investigators that we have i honestly dont know where to start but i will just get to the big one that broke my heart. We had planned out a baptism for a girl named tamara but she hadnt asked her dad yet and we had shared with him before and he was super cool and liked it but didnt want to commit himself to anything so we just said ok and taught his daughter and mom and i have heard now that her dad does not want her to get baptized so this week is going to be all about helping them and get the date set so that it goes through. Also if they dont get done these coming weeks for sure we have like 3 other familys that were teaching that should be getting baptized so we will see what we can get this week so lets hope for the best.

All in all not a horrible week just not the best but i know these next couple weeks will be better so that gives me alot of animo to get out and work. Well i love you all and hope the best for you all. Hope you have a good week.

sorry forgot my camara next week i will have alot of photos

September 28, 2015

This week was awesome and super weird i think looking back at some of my weeks during the mission there almost always this way haha. Well as for the week it all started with us cleaning out our old pension....

well so this week i want to name it the week of animals, insects, and revelation. This week i had to start of by cleaning out our old house because we just barely moved so that sucked but while we were in the house we went out into the patio and found a giant spider and my comp being who he is he trapped it in a plastic box and then we found another big one and we left them in there together to see what happenes and we filmed an epic battle of them it was crazy. Also we met a less active who has bunnys and she has like a ton and grazes them basically every three weeks she has more baby bunnys its a factory of bunnys!!! haha but they're awesome also one of our investigators showed me a weird rat hedge hog thing and it moves so slow and it is super relax it doesnt do anything it made me want one but then it poked me and decided that i better not. All in all crazy

Also the revelations now when we started on thursday the day i was super tired and had no desires to even move because i have been kind of sick and i felt my whole insides like grinding and angry haha but i told my comp that i know i need to buy a banana but i dont want to buy cause we dont have time so we went out worked our butts off and when i was really like right about to pass out we go over to an investigators house and she says elders you look tired here drink some water and eat this BANANA! It was super funny and i couldnt believe that god would bless me with a banana it was awesome and that god really has his hand in all things and the best part is that same lady we found a new family through them and then another family through the other so it was really blessings for the sector and my sickness haha.

All in all great week i had a blast today we went and did sandboarding on hill called dragon hill (cerro de dragón) it was super cool and its super hard to control you just have to go straight down you cant try to turn or move at all because then you get stuck but it was super fun.
