First let me just start off by saying WE GOT A BAPTISM! I love seeing this huge change in the lives of the people around me especially for Ichael he is a guy that we have been teaching for a little less than a month now and he literally was just a gift from god. He was attending seminary and knew the book of mormon was true before we even met him, He told us the first day he wanted to be a missionay and that he wanted to be baptized. I can honestly say that he was not my convert he was converted by the lord.
Except for that this week is going to be super cool we are going to be seeing a seventy elder Zeballos will be coming to our mission and we will be able to meet him personaly so i am super excited and cant wait to talk to him, and hear what he has for us.
Also this week were cambios, me and my comp are staying and also the other elders are staying too so nothing to big so that is good. Although a few other good friends in the zone left but get this.... an elder in our zone was super worried about the cambios and i told him he was going to go somewhere super special this cambio and it happened, he went to TAL-TAL he was like freaking out and called me immediatly and was super excited it was super awesome and i was pretty happy to be able to send some letters with him.
Other than that great things are happening in the zone and in our sector and i am so excited to see a few of the other people we have got ready for the first covenant. BAPTISM

First to start of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE WON LA COPA AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
It was so awesome this whole week was all about that i will be honest
every single person i talked to this last week and this week we had a
little conversation at least about what they thought was going to
happen, and you know what was the funniest is all the Argentinians were
talking crap because Chile has never won a cup in the history of ever so
this last week was history in the making. It was super fun everybody
had work off, everybody made a huge barbecue in there houses, and
everybody freaked out when they scored in penalty's and won! We had the
great blessing to watch the game with some members as an activity and
really enjoy that time but after we had to go straight to our pensions because people freaked out and like destroyed the streets it was so
After that also on Thursday we had a great time with our mission president in counsel it was super cool because we are preparing the mission so that on the 16-20 with will be having a 70 coming through here he is the Chilean that spoke in the general conference in April 2015 his name is Elder Zeballos i am super excited to meet him and here what has for us. Also we learned a lot about examples that we use in our teaching it was really interesting about what is good to use and not.
Also on Friday we got the interview done for a guy who will be baptized this Saturday his name is Ichael he is super cool and attends seminary and everything he is super ready for baptism and we are super excited for him. Also another two sectors in our zone both baptized on Saturday morning which was incredible because that ward hasn't baptized in like over a year so the whole ward was there and it was super packed it was awesome. It made me super happy about our zone.
All in all great week and i know that all of you had a great week and hope this next one is even better. Lots of love from the kid down under
con mucho cariño y amor
before the game we were just chilling with the papito and mamita and there kids super awesome.
This week was super great as always. It is very rare when I have a bad week if you haven't noticed because literally i see and feel that i am being guided and directed by the lord every single week. It is one of the greatest feelings ever.
As for this week we had a lot of good things happen such as at the beginning of the week we had a zone conference with president and it was super good i had a blast and saw a ton of good buddy's from the mission and i am super excited about a few of the changes they made so we can get more people in the water haha. Although this week we worked a lot with the list of members about cleaning out the list for the bishop and seeing which members are still living here and those that aren't and through those that are inactive we can get some news. It is all going to plan.
Also this week is the week when CHILE WILL WIN LA COPA AMERICA!!! today they play and all the people in the city were dressed in the Chile jersey it was super cool to see how incredible a whole country really unites to watch a game and nobody does anything but that. It is good for us as missionary's because they always invite us in and say sit, eat, and will talk while we watch. Also today is the semi finals and Chile goes against Peru and there are a ton of Peruvians that live here so tons of people tell me that they will probably start some crap up if they win or lose but i am pretty sure the game will end 2-1 and we will play the 4th it is going to be so crazy down here.
All in all we had a great week also with today we had a blast we didn't really have any plans for our day and then a member called out of nowhere and asked if we wanted to go get to know Antofagasta and the area and get some food it was super chill and i had a blast.
This week was awesome and i hope that you all have a great week. Remember to look for opportunity's to help and share the amazing things that changes the lives of people.
con mucho amor
the images are of me and my comp we went down to the beach with a member today and got to know all of Antofagasta it was super fun with him and his kids. Great time
