Week 9 in Mejillones!!!

First off, I hope everyone had a good Christmas! I did, it was quite an interesting week! It was actually pretty difficult in the terms of doing missionary work! A lot of people have started heading out for vacations and with the holidays it can be real tuff! But its all good and there's still a ton of stuff to do! But Friday was quite fun while we had a Christmas devotional with the mission president and his family! It was real good plus we had ice-cream and a movie!!!!! We saw The Croods! It was fun to watch! Our baptism for this week fell through, some stuff happened in her family and it just didn't go through... but everything is still good! Other than that Skyping was great yesterday!! Thank you to those that we´re there and it was wonderful to talk to you!!!

Something I want to share real quick is something that our mission president shared with us on Friday. Some of what he was talking about is that in life we make new beginnings. We start something new like leaving to serve on a mission, or making the choice to be baptized, getting married, big choices like that. Times when we make crucial changes in our lives for the better. And that afterwards when everything is said and done, we cant turn back. We cant go back to what we used to be. Everything that we have accomplished up to this moment can´t be in vain. So this being the last week of 2016, I want to invite everyone to look back on what you´ve done the past year. See what changes have happened and see what needs to improve. In life we make mistakes, but when we choose to follow Christ, and use His atonement. We can make changes and become better, and once we do that, we cant look back. We got to keep going and pushing forward so we don't fall back again. Les espero una semana buena con mucho amor y cariño!!

Hey Hey!!!!

Just came off a good week here in Mejillones! Lots of work to do and lots of souls to save!!!! We´ve been seeing a lot of success here the past few weeks! I think I might say that every week but its true!! The Lord gives us many blessings and I have seen many here during my time! I don't have much to say for this week just that I´m excited for this weekend! We´ll be having a Christmas conference Friday, a baptism Saturday, and Sunday is Christmas with a Skype call!!!!!! Yep we got a lot coming up this week and its gonna be fun! It´s been great these past week with all the Christmas feel in the air but it really has given time to reflect on Jesus Christ and His birth. Also on his life and the Godly example He has given us. I know He lives and this is His church. I hope you all enjoy this next week and can always remember Christ.

Con Amor,

Week 7 in Mejillones!!!!!!


Well another week in the deserts of Chile has come to an end! Last week went pretty well! I picked up my new companion Elder Clark!!! He´s a great guy from non other than......Utah!!!! Yep, what the members down here call, ¨La Fabrica¨  (The Factory)!!!!! But he´s a great Elder with just about 5 months in the mission. He was actually companions in the MTC with Elder Montgomery who I trained so it´s kind of fun...tell stories and share stuff like that. Well other than that we´ve been working alot here to find some more people to teach. But in just the past week we´ve found about almost 20 new people which has been quite a blessing!!!! Here in Chile the weather is getting warmer so I hope everyone back home is enjoying a nice cool winter! Other than that, not much happened last week but in my link theres some good fotos from the Branch Christmas party that we were in charge off!!!! Hope you all are well and enjoying the Christmas season!!!!

Week #54

Week 5 in Mejillones!!!!!

Hola mis queridos!! 

This past week we had alot of success here in Mejillones!! This place is the promised land!!!! This past week we had the baptism of Brayan and Yamileth!!!! It was super awesome!!!! This week her brother and mom will be getting baptized too!!! We´re really excited for them!!! We have really seen alot of blessings here because of our faith and obedience I believe. 

I don't have much time today but I want to tell a cool story before I go! The past week we found a cool family that at first we really didn't know what would happen with them or if they were really interested. Well Sunday morning when we went to look for them for church and when we asked them if they wanted to go, they were like ¨yeah, we´ll go to church with you¨!!!! And they did!!!!! So after church we stopped by there house and asked them if they want to get baptized and they said yes!!! So today we´re gonna stop by and see if they want to do it this saturday!!!! They´re very special and I feel that they are ¨escogido del Señor¨!! 

Well we have alot of work ahead of us this week because this Friday we´ll know if someone will go, yes transfers are coming..... Love you all and hope you have a very good week!!
