Chacabuco 9 -- email from 19 April 2016

Hey parents! 

Today I received a new companion from Peru. He seems really cool so I’m excited about this transfer that we are going to have. It’s likely that we have two transfers together and that he will send me to die in another area for my last three weeks. I can’t believe that the time is flying by so fast. I remember when I was just starting my mission and I can’t believe that time is going by so fast. I feel like the time is flying and at the same time that it’s never going to finish! Haha It's like the time is flying by but it never ends haha. I’m a little more than three months out right now so I’m just trying to hold on and keep working hard for these next 15 weeks. It’s safe to say that I’m ready to get onto the next thing and part of my life. I want other responsibilities. 

Thanks for doing my fafsa and my taxes dad! Thanks for sending a card with money too! I will look for something cool for you all. I think the only two things that worry me are my classes and my living arrangements now haha. It would be sweet if you all could sign me up for the classes this week so that I can be sure to get classes in the morning. It’s going to be really hard to work during the school year if I have classes in the afternoon haha. I hope that everything goes well with that. And it would be cool if you could all fix the living situation before the end of the semester in school. I think it is finished in the beginning of May. 

Here’s a couple of pictures for you all  :)

Chacabuco -- Week 8 -- an email from 11 April 2016

This was a great week. We had two baptisms! Juana, a woman that is like 55 was baptized and Cailin the daughter of a less active that we reactivated was baptized. Its been cool. I'm not to far from my goal in the mission of baptisms. Now I realize that the baptisms don't really mean anything. What really matters is the change that happens in oneself and the change that you can see in the other people. The baptisms aren't important. 

Hey I  have got to go, but i will write you all the next Tuesday because we have changes this Monday. I hope to see a huge card:)
Love you all

Leandro and Martina....and Email from 4 April 2016

Hey Everyone. 

There’s not much to say. This week was long. I’m tired, but happy. We brought a couple of families to the church! This next week we should have two baptisms. I hope that we can keep finding more people to have more baptisms and to help more people so that they can come unto Christ. I love my area, and I am getting along really great with the members. Remember my convert Leandro? Well he and Martina his girlfriend who are also members decided to get married! Here are some pictures. 

Dad, I am super pumped for your program that has been going well. I always knew that your genius was going to get paid off. The patience really pays off. When I get back I can sell the program to other universities for you. I’m really good at convincing people now. I’m sure if I can sell the gospel it will be a lot easier for me to sell a program that saves them a lot of money.
