This week was so strange let me just start off with everything that has been going on. First it all started with Wednesday we had our interviews with our president and first off mine went super good and i have got nothing to worry about it went super good and i am pretty i will be staying here in Antofagasta this transfer although my other two comps elder Scott and elder Jara were not so sure especially with what pres told them and what they feel but i just tell them they are crazy and that nobody knows the transfers except god. Anyway so this whole week as been the conversation about that and a few other crazy things going down with some members.
Although the week in general i felt good because they both felt as if there leaving so they want to leave this sector with respect so they worked really hard this week to get some people ready to be baptized and for that we found out that there was kid named martin who is 9 who hasn't gotten baptized and had a huge fear of water and that's why he hasn't done it yet but we talked to him and he decided to go through with it but we are going to do a little baptism not announced so that only him and a few people are there in case he gets nervous he wont want to do it. Although he is super awesome and fun and we are excited for him and his family they are so great.
All in all i am super happy i have no complaints where my sector is at and i am really excited about all the good things that are happening right now and just want you all to know how much i love you and hope the best for you.
con mucho cariño y amor

Whats up family, Friends, and loved ones from all over. you get the grand opportunity to hear from me again. haha hey it seems like all is well and normal that's good to hear.
As for me things are great we just had TWO BAPTISMS on Saturday. It was so awesome and i really got to see two people that were really just ready for there family to grow in the gospel start there lives and open the door to happiness and love and also on Sunday they got confirmed and there baby boy got his name given to him IT WAS AWESOME! Also afterwards they came up to us and said that they wanted to go to the temple NOW we talked about it and put a goal in year so they can be sealed for time and all eternity in the house of the lord. It was really super awesome. Except for that not much happened except that i went on exchanges with an elder from Santiago it was super fun but nothing to big except that this week.
I love you all so much and hope that you guys feel my prayers for you all daily. Thanks for all that you do for me and the love i feel out here.
First i want to say that it was so awesome that i got to see you all again and it was great to hear how good the family is doing and that you lucky punks got to see Avengers 2 in theatres. haha nah but my comp is pretty jealous and wants to buy a suit from Hayden of iron man. Also shout out to sterling and Jessica for there return from there honeymoon and that i love you guys so much.
As for my week it was super fun we got to have quite a few activity's during the week because it was stake conference they had a brilliant idea they had an activity every day to get everybody excited about the work and so they would come to church to stake conference and not think about it like ugh stake conference. With more excitement and happiness. Also like I mentioned we have a baptism this week that i am pretty excited for and they are so cool so this next week i will be sending out photos of that to you guys. Also on Thursday we had a counsel of all the zone leaders of the mission come and took the day to think and talk about what we could do to be better it was super awesome and made me super happy to see a lot of my buddy's from the mission. Although the rest of the week was normal.
I love you all so much and especially i want to give a special shout out to all those moms out there, that not only yesterday should be yours it should be everyday. Lots of love and prayers.
the first one is an area that actually has green its really sad that that's the green here.
the second is one of the games we did for our activity was shoot down the cups with elastics we thought they would do it super fast but it turns out Chileans have a problem shooting elastics haha
the third is another but this time they had to play soccer tied to another person
First of all to start of i have to give a big shout out to my brother sterling and send him congrats on his marriage this last friday. Congrats man i hope the best for you and your wife.
Although the rest of the week was pretty normal and we got to have exchanges on Thursday and i got to be in a sector called centenario it is super cool its also one of the sectors elder Scott served in like when he started his mission so i let him tag along so we had a trio that day and elder Scott was super happy so we got to see some of his good friends from that sector.
All in all it was a great week and i am really excited for all the things great that are happening for you guys right now.
con mucho amor

Before I started this email i wanted to give a special shout out to my brother who will be getting married this next week for time and all eternity. I love you bro and hope the best for you and the family you are now starting. Also another to my brother and sister in law Chris and Rachel for there new house it is gorgeous and I know it will be a good place where my nieces and nephew are going to grow up well in so it makes me so happy.
As for everything else this week went great we had a ton of new investigators in church and a family that has a date for the 16th of may and they are both going to be baptized without a doubt. Also we have a colombian family who came and loved it and they are a for sure too we just need to get there parents to get married but they want it so it will be awesome. Also another family who loves the church and wants to hear more but they have a lot of problems so we are just waiting to be sure that they are ready to take that next step. Although i am so excited for it all they are so cool and ready.
With everything that is happening right now i am happy as could be and am so excited about everything here. So as of course when things are good help others and when there bad give a little more. So i will be sure to do everything I can to pray and send blessings all your ways.
Con mucho Cariño
this is a photo of a family that I left in arica who are super cool that said goodbye to me in the bus terminal
this week is crazy i got some cool and sad news. I got cambios and i am going to ..............................
AGAIN BUT THIS TIME AS A ZONE LEADER! I am a little scared and really
excited because i know the lord will prepare me and is preparing me
right now. Although the other thing is that i am not any better than any
other elder i really did learn a lot about TITLES in conference these
past weeks. I really now the lord prepares us in many forms.
As for everything we are super good i am really sad because we just started getting things really going here like last week we had 30 news i was really excited for those baptisms but i just needed to prepare them for the new elder here they are prepared for him. Also it was really hard because i have to leave a ward that is amazing and i will never be able to forget and will be people i will come back and see again.
Sorry this is kind of short but I leave tonight in two hours down to Antofagasta for a 10 hour bus ride so its a blessing that i got to write you guys before but i love you all so much and wish the best for you guys. Remember that you all need to PRAY, AND STUDY what the lord wants for you and that includes Reading, watching videos, and more than anything think about the cliche phrase "what would Jesus do" I love you all so much. I hope you have a good week.
