Week 70

so yea it was a pretty sweet week here! first of all paola gopta baptized!!! and i am so sorry but my card reader broke and this computer is acting up..... so pics will have to come next week....

but the baptism was sososos sweet like almost the whole ward came! so it was a great experience for her! and she is so ready to share the gospel with her fam! she already has some plans on how to share with her sister! and now we are wokring on getting guillermo the priesthood! and also we are like now paolas 'sons' lol she brought us chocolate milk at church and made us fried fish last night!

well other than that we are still looking for people to progress...... but i do have the hope that we will have someone ready for a november baptism this week!

other than that we have been just trying to keep the zone animated! one elder is like almost dying with asthma attacks..... so we'll see what happens there...

but yea all is well! i am just super tired, we seriosuly walk so much.... might try to find someone to give me a foot massage! but i love this work so much! it was really nice being able to baptize someone myself for once! love you all!!!

Week 69

another pretty good week down here in hualpen! but man it was really stormy and rainy..... so it made it a little harder to get people to church...... but other than that it was a good week!

so yea we are wokring a lot still with paola and now she is all ready! and man she really has opened my eyes to see how the gospel blesses families... because before they knew the gospel they were not happy people. and they did not have a happy marriage... but now they are so giddy and happy and you can really see the changes. and yea her bautismo is this friday and she asked me to do it! so por fin time to see if the white pants still fit me! but it should be a sweet service!

other than that uhhhh..... we are just trying to find some good partial families! but that means working with some LAs and oh man i am pretty tired of LAs. but we did find a couple of famillies that have some decent potnecial! 

so we found out this week that pres catala is like in love with our ward mission lider because of how well he works with the organization (wich like never happens in chile...). pres is thinking about like filming how he does stuff LOL. or like filming a pep talk! ps my ward mish lider is the little guy in the temple pic! 

But yea not too much new stuff here! just wokring hard out here! but we are seeing a lot of good progress with our zone! we got the averagelessons with members to 17! so we were pretty pumped about that! but i love you all so much!

ps read the good word!

Week 68

so we had a pretty full week here! we had an awesome consejo with president! and there were some big changes in the mission!!!so before we had to do 20 contacts in the street as a companionship everyday..... and por fin pres catala changed the rule!! oh man that was nice to hear!! because chileans do not like being stopped in the street to hear about how much Christ loves them. so that was an answer to prayers (JK). but it will be a big change!

so this week we were really wokring with paola on getting her ready for her baptism and we had a great time helping her search for her answer! towards the end of the week she kept saying how she felt like J smith! and to top it off we went to the temple grounds with like 2 other families and them! and oh man she litterally rean to the fence and like closed her eyes and envisioned herself there............. uh yea it was sweet! and now her biggest worry is 1. getting a frame for a picture of christ she has and 2. sharing the gospel with her now grown up children! yea God has been prepping this family for a long time!!!

then we are still working with maria, but amn she'll probably get baptized in november IF she does, because there are a lot of problems with her fiance and she cant just move. but we'll see what happens...

but yea other than that we are just searching for more families.... please pray for us that we can be guided to another prepped fam!! other than that we are just out here wokring as much as we can! love you all so much!!

Week 67

so cambios came again........... i finally get to stay!! and im staying with elder hayne for another cambio aka 4 1/2 months together.... prettylong time together lol

but yea so we had an interesting mini cambio this week where we brought a more 'troubled' missionary to our sector and i worked with him for the day. man that was interesting lol. the poor kid didnt get up till 8.... but atleast we were able to have a sweet spiritual experience with the wife of guillermo during the mini cambio and put her with fecha for the 22 of october!!!! and after putting her with that fecha the other day i went back with hayne and she was so pumped because thats a birthday weekend!!! and her kids will be home that weekend and she is snow pumped for he baptism!!! seriously paola did like a 180 with guillermo`s baptism!!! and we are going to the temple grounds with them next sunday! because they are really interested in doing work for the dead!!!

and maria is doing well too. she wont get dunked this week because her fiance had another realapse!! so they are waiting for some tests to see if he has to go to the crazy house.... so we'll see if we can get her to move out, because that wont really fix the sitaution, since he would just come home after a while and they would be sinning.... but she still has a lot of hope!

other than that not much happened this week.... i had to stay in one day because i got seriously the worst headache (probs from dehydration...) and i slept for like 12 hours, oh amn it was sososososo nice. but all is well now. we just have a huuuge sector and we walk a LOT.

But i lvoe you all and hope you all enjoyed conference!! besitos!!!!!!
