Week 18 Vallenar

July 13, 2015

Hey everybody!!! How’s it going? So where do I start.... hmm, well... we had some success this week! We committed Jonathan to Baptism! He is set to have his baptism next month so we will see what happens there. We still have to work with him on a few things but he’s more than ready to be baptized. His testimony has grown soooo much since the first time we talked with him. Also, we met a lot of new people to teach this week. I’m finally comfortable leading all of the lessons and participating a lot in the lessons. It’s amazing to see how the spirit can work through us as missionaries. I would say the hardest thing to do here in Chile is to get the Chileans to commit to something haha. They will tell us one day that "Yeah! I’m going to go to church with you guys!" and the next day they will say, "Nah, I don’t want to". I would say that is the biggest problem we have here haha. We had the opportunity to work with a member se llama "Hermano Carriso". He is by far the coolest old man I’ve ever met. He is an old grandpa in the ward that has the strongest testimony in the world. He always works with us as missionaries and goes with us for like 4 hours to work. He will walk an hour just to deliver an invitation to a family. He is the kind of person I want to be when I’m an old man. So here is the big news.... Elder Leon is leaving me... :( He will be going to Iquique! My new companion will be a gringo! haha and his name is Elder Milan or something like that. I meet him tomorrow. I have to lead my sector now, which is kinda freaky but awesome as well. I’m excited but also really sad... >Oh!!! It rained like.... a ton last night... like the roads were like rivers of water! It was soooo sweet! So yah, for those of you that said it would never rain in my mission.... TOMA!!! hahahaha. Anyway, All is well here. I have to go with Elder Leon to the bus station so until next week! Love you all!!
