Well Family and Friends, this last week was a great week! My companion and I had to go to Osorno for a leadership conference with our Presidente and it was absolutely great!!!!!!!!................ until lunch. at first I was super excited becuase the presidents wife made us tacos. But as I started to eat them I felt super sick........ Then we started walking to the bus station to return home and I just felt terrible. We ended up going to the house of the missionaries that work in Osorno and I went DIRECTLY to the bathroom and then spent the next 8 hours throwing up.... I dont really know how much I like mexican food now......
However, I recovered fast and Saturday we were up and runnin our tails off like always. Tuesday we had an interview for one of our canadites and he is going to get baptized next week!!!!!! That is super cool! My companion is going to be baptizing him!!!! We are super excited! This next week will be 18 of september which means the independence day of Chile! Usually it is super crazy! We will see what happens!
Anyways, I'm short on time like always, but I love you all! Thank you all so much for you support, love and prayers!
Well,,,,,,,, I have come to the end of another transfer here in the mission. This last one has passed by so, so, so, so freaking fast it is absolutly unreal!!!!! Now I only have 5 transfers left!!!!! Wow I can't even believe it! I never thought a day like this would even come in my mission or in my life.
My companion and I will be staying together here for another transfer! I am so, so, so glad! Because we work so good together and we have so many plans for this next transfer!
This last week has been a very successful week. We have some absolutely amazing investigators. They have been so, so, so prepared by the Lord. This coming Saturday we will have a baptismal interview for a boy that we have been teaching then the Saturday after that he will be getting baptized. On that same Saturday we will have a baptismal interview for another woman who will get baptized the Saturday after that! We are just having so much success! I have never seen the work move like this in Chile before, in any part! I am so, so excited!
This last Saturday was daylight savings so we had to move time an hour forward. That has just brought me to my absolute physical limits. Yesterday, I fell asleep so fast! My goal to memorize 2 scriptures in Spanish everyday has gotten very hard. I can memorize the scriptures and have them word for word but then when we are in a lesson I can't remember where they are at in the scriptures....... Hahahah. but I'm going to find out a way to better myself!
Anyways, everything here in the mission is going really, really well! Lots of success. Lots of tiredness. But in the end every moment is worth it!
This week has been absolutly fantastic! But at the same time so, so, so, so tiering! I never thought that I would get to a point in my life that I would be so tired mentally and physically, but so energized spiritually! This last week has been good. But my companion and I have had to be all over the zone this last week. So we have been in the sector very, very little and we didn't get much done there. But our investigators are progressing very well! Friday we had our first lesson with the woman that I talked about last week. We passed by and started to teach her the restoration and when we finished we invited her to be baptized and also to pray to know if the church was true. She told us that last Sunday before she came to church she already prayed to know if it was true and what she should be doing and everything and she said that she has already recieved an answer that it is the true church!!!! She did that before we even started teaching her!!!!!!! So that makes things absolutly awesome! She came to church this last Sunday and well and absolutly loved it! She is going to be such a great member and she is going to be baptized the 27th of September! I'm super exicted!
We are also preparing a "chico" (that is a son) to a member that we reciently activated and he is going to be baptized this month as well! So we are seeing such good results here in the sector! This next week we are going to know transfers and I hope so much that my companion doesn't get transferred because we are working so, so hard and we have seen so many good things come to pass!
I have made a goal to memorize two sciptures in spanish everyday and also bare my testimony at every opportunity that I have to do so. I just started this morning! Juan 7:17 El que quiera hacer la voluntad de El, conocerá si la doctrina es de dios, o si yo hablo por mi mismo. and moroni 7:13 Mas he aquí, lo que es de dios invita e induce a hacer lo bueno continuamente, de manera que todo aquello que invita e induce a hacer lo bueno, y amar a dios y servirle es inspirado por dios.
I want a photografic memory.
Anyways, everything here is going really, really good! I am learning so, so, so very much! I am so exited to learn and work everyday so I can get better and better! I know that this is the church of our savior jesus christ. I know that the scritpures were written by inspired men of God and that any person that reads them with the desire to become as God, will achive it! I know that Thomas S. Monson is the prophet of our Savior Jesus Christ in this day. I love you all! Thank you so much for your prayers and support!
