Chacabuco 19 -- Email from 27 June 2016


This week is going really well. Carlos and Yuliana are really well and they were confirmed well! This week was great and we are teaching two people named Liz and Andrea. They are progressing really well. They were references from members and are neighbors. Liz is 28 and her son who is ten is a member of the church! She is so excited to come to church and is going to get baptized this week or the next week! Andrea is 18 and her situation is particular. She is taking care of a baby that's 6 months old. Its her nephew. Two weeks ago her sister in law died and she is helping her brother take care of the baby. She is super excited and is learning a lot. She is going to get baptized too. So I'm pretty happy with that.

In two weeks we have transfer. I hope to stay here. I went to the doctor for my shoulder this week and had an MRI. This Wednesday they are going to let me know what happened. I'm hoping that everything is well, and I will let you know what happens. If I need a surgery then I will wait until the states to get it. 
Love you all,

I'm glad everything is going well for you!

Here's my convert Nadia and us. She is wearing a skirt to church now! :)
This last week was good. We had a wedding and 2 baptisms. They are named Carlos and Yuliana and they are the parents of my convert from February. They have great friends from the ward and are growing a ton spiritually. They have the goal to get sealed in the temple in the next June, so I'm going to try and come out so that i can see that and visit a couple of converts. I'm going to be saving my money for that haha. We are hoping to have two more baptisms this transfer so that we can baptize weekly this transfer. I'm pumped. I'm looking forward to keep working and right now I'm 7 weeks out. I'm going to give it all I got for the next 4 weeks so that i can find people who are going to get baptized in my mission. I love the mission and I'm glad to be here. BUUUUUUTTTTTT that all being said I'm glad that in 7 weeks I'm finishing up. I'm tired. My body is tired. Its hurt haha. I went to the doctors this week for a shoulder that has been bothering me, I have been losing motion and its uncomfortable to sleep on it, and they said i need to get a magnetic resonance on my shoulder to see if I tore it out. I have an appointment this Tuesday night. So the next week i should know if my shoulder is good or not. Other than that nothings new, We hope to have a couple more baptisms this week.
A couple of pictures to the wedding. Carlos used my suit so...

we decided to go in skinny jeans. jajajaja
Love you all

Hey all,

This week was really well. We brought six people to the church and we have 3 progressing investigators. We are going to have a wedding and 2 baptisms this week. Its going to be the parents of one of my converts named Brandon! He was baptized back when i first got here in march, and tomorrow his mom and stepdad are getting married and they are going to get baptized this Saturday! Its going to be a great week! :) We are also working a ton through the recent converts and the Members a ton, and its super fun. We are receiving a ton of help. So I'm pretty pumped for that and I'm pumped for all the people we are finding! I cant believe that in 8 weeks I'm headed home. Its crazy for me to think about that. The time is flying by, but I'm enjoying it. We all bought skinny jeans last week so I'm ready for the dates. I will send you a picture. I'm bulking up. I can curl a fifty pound dumbbell now so that's pretty sweet!! I'm going to do a diet to slim down the fat on my stomach and I'm going to be good. 

I'm super excited about the Richios coming out to see us! Its going to be a lot of people. Its going to be a huge change for me but I'm down. 
Love you all.

Chacabuco 16 -- an email from 6 June 2016


This week was great. We live with four missionaries here, and sadly Elder Jensen left the last transfer. The new elder that came in his place is from Montana and he doesn't speak any English. He is pretty cool and it has been pretty fun helping him out with the Spanish and speaking English with him because I'm the only one of us four who speaks English haha. That was pretty cool, and the coolest part is that his birthday was this Saturday. We had a party in the night with some of the members, and we ate pizza and cake for his birthday. Its so funny because he doesn't understand anything haha. Also, we had two baptisms this Saturday! Felipa and her daughter Dalila were baptized. The other sister Lourdes was ready and passed her interview, but she didn't want to get baptized for some reason. We are hoping that in these next couple of weeks she will be ready and her heart will be softened so that she feels ready. Nadia and Justina are doing so well. It makes me so happy to see them progressing in the church. They are going to be some of my best converts that i have after the mission. They go to church every Sunday, and are really active and the members are fellow shipping them really well! :) 

Well, I don't know what more to say. I'm going to go shopping for a couple pairs of jeans today and maybe a cool jacket or something. If i pull out more money this week don't worry. Also, a missionary asked to buy my camera. How much did you guys buy it for so that i can sell it for a good price.
