Week 4 in Paipote
Buenos!!! It´s been a good week here in Chile. It´s been a little hotter but not to bad. Spanish is going pretty well. Mi compañero and I have committed to talk more in Spanish during the day. A lot of people are still on vacation which makes things a little tough. We also only had 23 people in church yesterday. Things are a lot different from in the States but its all good. Sadly our Hermano William won´t be getting baptized this sabado. He drove all night from working in the mines to try to make it to church but had to pit-stop and sleep. Esta bien, he still has a strong desire for baptism so we´ll just need to wait til Marco.
Being a missionary, one simple thing I´ve learned is to just be happy. It´s not really hard not to be. You might have to walk all day, your appointments might fall through, but guess what? I have a knowledge of the restored gospel of Jesucristo. También, I get to share this knowledge with others. This is quite applicable for anyone. You will have challenges and problems in life, but you also have a loving Padre Celestial. Who you can pray to, Who can help lift your spirit. As a missionary, we make commitment with personas. One we do all the time is oracion (prayer). It is such a simple action but can have such an impact. Think of José Smith. He had one simple prayer and it´s changed the world. I invite all to alway remember to pray, no matter how small or big. Also just be happy, life´s to short not to be. Love you all and I am so grateful for any email you send.
