WOW so this last week was absouluty amazing!!! I've never had so much success my whole time out here!!!!
My companion, Elder Jensen and I, work so so so so hard and the lord has blessed us like I've never seen before!!!!!! It has been such a humbling experience!!!!!!! I've never been so happy in my whole life!!! we have amazing investigators and they are all progressing! However, I know for a fact that our success that we had this last week was completely from the hands of the lord!!! i would be lying to say that the success of the sector came souly from our efforts. I can testify that everything good that happened this last week was from the lord!
We broke all the records in the sector!!!!!!!! however, like I said I know it was the lord blessing us!
Well, this week is real transfers and so elder jensen is leaving and I'm getting a new companion this Wednesday. which I am kinda sad because we had such short time together. But my new companion, Elder Jones, is pretty awesome so I'm excited! but I am also kinda nervous because I'm the lead for the sector now and I've only been here two weeks!!!!! however, I know that if the lord trusts me that I can trust myself and I just have to continue to rely on the spirit!
It's so good to hear that everyone back at home is doing good! I love you all and miss you all so much!!!! I hope that everything continues to be rewarding, learning, experiences because that is the only way to return to our father and heaven! KEEP BUILDING THE KINGDOM OF OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN!
Alright, alright, so this last week was just absolutly crazy!!!!!! the APs called me and Tuesday and said "pack your backs your going on an emergency transfer tomorrow!"
so boom! I'm here now!!!! I am on an island called TIERRA DEL FUEGO! in english that means land of the fire! half the island is part of chile and the other half is part of argentina! its absolutly crazy!!!! I had to take a 3 hour boat ride to get here and my companion and I are the only missionaries on the island!!!!! so we don't ever get to see other missionaries. I had to buy all my food in Punta Arenas because there aren't places to buy regular groceries here! It's a little cold here!!!! super super windy! But the people here are really nice! Their spanish is a little different though.... no se. But all is well!
My new companion is elder JENSEN!!! he is from California and he is a great companion!!!! I really think we are going to have a lot of success here!!!! there hasn't been a baptism here for a really long time so I hope we can get a couple here!
I was a little sad to have to leave my last sector especialy because it was on such short notice!!!! But the people there are in good hands I think....
CHAD!!!! thank you so much for the advice and the counsel! the last couple weeks were getting pretty stressful at some points, but all is good now and really thank you so much!!!! Really means the world to me!!! Thank you!!!!
Thank you so much family and friends for keeping me updated and posted!!! I miss you all so much and love you all!!!!! Always remember the lord and all he has done for us!!!!
Jacob: make sure you work as hard as you can this senior year! I promise you that you're going to want good grades! your future literally depends on it!!! so give it your all! I'm glad to hear that your having all this fun without me!!!! shoot bro, I wish I was there!!!! love you tons buddy!
Aright, so this last week was freaking awesome!!!!!!!
Saturday I got to hang out with the President all day and he is a super awesome guy!!!!! He took a picture of me with his phone and did some fat booth thing to it and said "Hey Elder Beals, This is what your gonna look like in 2 years!!!" hahahaha so funny! but I'm sad, cause I hope that doesnt really happen!!!!!!
I took it back to the good days with my uncles and cousins when we would discuss business ideas and theories, and i had to present my "Business Ideas" I guess you would say for the mission! The President really liked my idea of having an "Addiction Recovery Program" for all of our Less Actives, Members, and Investigators here in Punta Arenes, so we are getting that started right away now!!!!! hahahaha
We just had a new member move into the ward who does constuction but he is gonna be living here alone for about 4 months before his family moves in so he wanted us to come visit him because he is lonley. So the other day we went and visited him and he wanted to show us the college he is working on and building, so we went and looked at it and it made me SO HOME SICK!!!!! he had all these tools and just the smell of fresh cut 2 x 4`s made me wish I was home so bad!!!!! so i was like hey man you ever need help you got the best man right here. I would LOVE to help!!!! he was so happy! he was like oh service? and i was like heck yeah!!!!
The sister that we taught last week with Papita is all good now!!! she commited to baptism!!!!! so hopefully it will be pretty soon!!!!
Anyways, I love you all so very much and im sorry I don't have time or privalege to write you all personaly or else I would I promise!!!!!! I love you all so very much and thank you so much for all the support!!!! you are ALL in my prayers!!!
