Week 57

yea so a little info about my new sector is that it is literally in one of the most rainy and windy places in chile............ it rains sososososososo much here. i have been wet for the past week lol. but all is well in villa acero!

So with that rain no one came to chruch.... so we were pretty bumbed about that but also we have a new found fire to get these peeps to church si o si!!!

but other than that it was a really good week! we have this really good routine that we do to get into houses when its raining! its kinda funny at points because some people are still not letting us in and they say stuff like dont get rained on lol. But one day theyll acept the gospel.

so we are working with this one partial family that is SWEET! they have two niños that can be baptized! they couldnt come because they were with their dad this synday but the mom came! it was the first time in like 10 years! and she really enjoyed it!!! so that was a nice tender mercy!

WE found this one dude after we forced our way into the house and we started to share anout baptism and he was super excited about it once we told him he could have a new start to his life!!! BUT we found out that he colives :((((( and he didnt come to church, but we foundhim saturday so that was kinda expected...

we found this super nice old lady last week and we came back for or return appointment and we found out that she efll really bad!! but we were able to give her a really sweet blessing! so we have a lot of potential with her! plus she wants to makes us empanadas! lol

But yea this sector is really fun! we are just working really hard to find more of the choosen people! its hard work and im sosososso tired but i love it here! plus the members are siiiiiick! we work a lot with them! but yes the church is so very true! i would only do all of this if it were! love you all so much!! have a great week! enjoy being dry!

Week 56

so yea im in my new sector and it is BOMB! This sector is huge, like really really big and it is just full of houses that have middle class families! aka like the perfect sector! and this is one of the biggest wards in the mission so there is plenty support from the members! like this next week we almost are doing divisions everyday.

so this week we had a lot of meeting with president for this new cambio about what is the new vision of th mision. and what he says is needed is 20 lessons with member every week! ok i dont knwo about you guys but that is a high number i think the highest i have ever gotten is 9. But we are accepting this challenge!!! and we are trying to animate the missionaries of our zone to do the same!

So my new comp is Elder hayne. he's from san diego! and we actually got to the mission together at the same time! so its really fun because we both have a lot of energy and new ideas. 

i still dont really knwo that names of the investigators because ive had to learn so many new names this week lol sorry.

But last night we had a really cool find! we were looking for an antiguo but this guy cam out and was like  nonono no no no, but then he gave us 3 bomb references! and one was just down the street of an old lady who's husband had dies recently. and we go over and she works in a negocio (like a supermarket in her garage) and we were like uhhh dangit shes working.. what do we do. so i just go in and tell her hey we felt like we needed to come here and share something! she loved it! and is thinking about the B word! 

But yea life is awesome here! just risin and grindin everyday! love you all so much! this is the true church!

Week 55

well its that time again.... and it turns out that...
IM LEAVING! what the heck!
yea im getting shipped out to talcahuano sur! so it was a really short and sweet time here in valle hermoso! but looks like im needed somewhere else! but this new ward im going to is like the biggest ward in the mission! so im pretty pumped about that! and there will be a lot less drunk evangelicos! But yea i got the call last night from the APs and it was funny because pablito was working with us that night and he did not belive me one bit that i am leaving. but now he knows and hes making a big lunch for this afternoon! but yea gonna miss penco! 

so this week we really tried to get those peeps we found progressing. and man oh man it was kinda frustatring because some of this people just change! one day they were super nice and we had a return appointment and everything but then we went by again and were super rude... so it was easy to discern them as unchosen peeps. 

so jose had a pretty good week! he didnt come to church.... but he is living the WoW and LoC! it was really raining and he was sick, so it was a kinda valid excuse. (but the whole ward used that excuse too lol) but he is still looking good to get baptized this month. so tobarcito will probs baptize him!

so this week i really realized just how much the bible is lacking, like really so many people justify the most random things with the bible. its kinda sad. and they just have their minds filled with so many lies about the church from their patores. but we still just kept pushing and we were able to get this really old lady to think about baptism! hopefully she can really progress her name is rosa.

But yea looks like i'll be packing my bags tonight! love you all so much!!

Week 54

happy 4th everyone! we had a zone activity where we with pablito made pulled brisket sandwiches to celebrate the 4th!!!

so this was a pretty good week! seriously we went really hard trying to find new people to teach this week and we found 11 in total! it was really fun teaching tobarcito how to just get into houses and finding a need and then just inviting them to be baptized. but man it is so funny trying to invite these evangelicos to be baptized! the apostasy was so real! like one old guy last night told me that baptisms had to be in rivers so the current would wash away the sins....

So this week was kinda sad with janet... we lost contact with her for like 4 days... then we finally get contact with her on her doorstep, and she tells us she doesnt want anything with the church.... and that she is going to start attending and evangelico church.... so yea. she did NOT get baptized.

But! we had a huge break throiugh with jose! so like this guy is super good with the bible like super duper good. kinda intimidating. but he always gets confused when he thinks about what the bible is saying ans what he should do. SO we shared alma 32... and now he has fecha for the 16th!!!! and he came to church!! so things are working very well with him!

Other than him we just are working with all the news we found. just trying to see who will really progress and who was just nice enough to let us in. 

but yea this is the last week of the transfer!!! we'll see if i will get to stay here another cambio or if im needed somewhere else! love you all so much!!!
