Week 100

so this is the last week.....

this last week was super full becaue we had zone conferences!!!! it was fun seeing how president tailors them to each zone specifically. but that ate up most of our week! 

there was one funny moment where i had to go with Hna Catala to go pick up medication for a missionary and i was driving and there was no parking so hna catala tells me to just do a vuelta..... SOLITO. so i got to drive around alone for like 15 mins..... man that was wierd!

and Elixon is doing super well! his wife Isable is getting dunked the 17th...... but I'll just skype them that day :)

other than that just getting stuff ready for the white wash!!!!

so pumped to see you all soon!!!

Week 99

wow time is just flying by this cambio! only two more weeks in the cambio! ah!

so this week was super super crazy for us.... i got a call from pres on tuesday morning basically saying we need to get in some more baptisms before the month ends.... so elder murillo and i had to runa all over getting people ready to be dunked! it was quite fun! 

and also because of that call we prepped elixon (the miracle venezuelan) to get dunked on sunday morning! it was super easy because he was already investigating in venezuela! and we also started to teach his wife and she'll probably get dunked the firday when im home :( but still it'll be a cute fam in the church! 

We also got that couple (jorge and francisca) to put the date to get married! so they will be baptized the 1st of july!! 

but yea all is well here!!! loving these last weeks! hope you all have a great week!!!!

Week 98

wow so its really cold over here! But all is well!! but man it is funny finishing the mish with someone that is finishing the mish lol! 

But yea we had a sweet miracle this week a venezuelan came to church!!! he showed up on his own and was like yea i came bc i want to be baptized....... i about cried when i heard that! BUT we then found out he lives in a neighbouring sector but we set him up with fecha and everything for the 3rd! 

and then we had a funny experience when pres came to our house..... and our house is kinda rough...... but yea! all is beter now! i got to fix a shower, sink,  and a toillet! 

Love you all so much!!!!!

Week 97

lol kinda funny that we just chatted!! but it was so good seeing all of you last night (well almost all of you)

so last week we were on the road a lot like i said! we kinda live out of our suitcases for like half of the week. but it was a lot of fun working in the little towns! 

so i got to go to one small town called bulnes, and there its interesting because only 30 members come every sunday! but ther we taught like a colony of haitianos! lol they all spoke french except for one! so uhh yea that was a new experience! 

then we got to work in quirihue. and there they meet in their house for church. so its kinda funny because the church looks like any other random church! but its a super small town lol.

but all is well here! hard to think that this mission thing ends in 4 weeks!!!! love you alll

Week 96

wow things are really coming to an end! like i had to give my 'dying' testimony during consejo. and it only makes it funnier that elder murillo also ends this cambio. we keep joking about how we'll do things next cambio. 

so this week was a super full one! we finally got back to our sector here in chillan on saturday morning, and we had to make up for a weeks worth of work! so i was in divisions for a good part of the day just touching doors lol. but it was fun this week being with pres so much, the man is super ambitious! he literally has plans to get the mission split before he ends..... 

so we kinda found a mom and daughter on saturday that came to church on sunday, lisett and coni. and they loved church!!! but it was super funny when we went to look for them in the morning because lisett had washed conis jeans the other day  and they were still wet...... we were just there on their doorstep stressin like uhhh what if we go to members house that has a dryer etc... in the end we got a blanket from a member for coni lol. they have the goal to get dunked this month!

we also are working with francisca, she is going to get separated from her pololo this week supposedly, so she could get dunked real soon, but man her kids are CRAZY! they literally run around the sacrament room during the meeting. and the boy, miguel, we gave him a folleto and he drew mustaches on every single person (except for Christ) lol. 

But yea all is well here just a lot of work to do! we have to do a ton of mini tranfers and show off our sector, so ill actually have 2 straight days in other sectors!

Love you all so much! cant wait to see you all on sunday!!!!!!!

Week 94

so this was a pretty crazy week here! we had our pday changed for the census that happened here in chile and we had the conference with pres nelson! it cut away quite a bit of time from the sector but still it was a great week!!!

so the conference with pres nelson was sososososososso cool! the whole area presideny was there too! and they all spoke with their wives! and so sister nelson talked about praying to find people whose ancestors are ready and axiously waiting on the other side for their baptisms! and then pres nelson talked a lot about the book of mormon! it was a really motivating conference and we got to shake hands with pres nelson and he said my name! ah! 

so we still are wokring on rebuilding the teachingn pool... but the girl estefani that we found in the pueblito.... we found out that she is super prepared! we had a cita with her pon saturday and as we enter her house she shows us an old copie of the BOM that she found in her house.... she was really pumped and she accepted baptism! and then she made it to church!!! and now she hasa fecha for the 13th of may! and she loved the YSA group here! 

we also started teachinga a lil old granpa named juan ( i call him juanito cause he's just too tierno) and he is 87!!!!! but he was really good and we went to his house and sang him hymns while elder cowley played the guitar! super cute old gramps, and he asked us when he's baptized if he can still watch soccer lol. 

but yes all is well here in linares city! its sad to think this might be my last week in linares! but we'll see where the lord wants me for the last transfer!!!!!!!!!!!

love you all so much!!!!!!
