Week 64--October 20, 2015
hey mom! and everyone!
sounds like a good YW activity! and ya england has got to be an expensive mission.. and ya chile is actually surprisingly expensive too for south america. all the food and everything is more expensive here and supposedly its expensive to live in general. but i think thats comparing it to peru and argentina and such.
eduardo is an investigator, 29 years old, pretty awesome and alice and her family are the investigators who came to general conf and want to be baptized but are passing through all kinds of trials right now, cancer, divorce, etc she is super strong though and even her kids think we arrived for a reason to help them in this time :)
also another miracle happened this week and the elders found a man named eliu in our sector and we called him at 9 in the morningand he came to church!!! (same thing that happened with GC...so many people said they would come and didnt make it but the one random person came :P) he liked it and we taught him that night for the first time and he said he would be baptized the 31!! after the elders taught him, he even got another job to be able to pay tithing!!! he is seriously a miracle he has been reading 5 pages a day and is now quitting smoking so that he can be baptized :))) the only problem is that his mom is a jehovahs witness and so we cant teach him in his house... he is 42 and single and we are way excited for his baptism. this week tons of stuff happened. Hna lasley had to go home so we are now in a trio with hna harden, who arrived with me in the CCM. she is awesome but we have had to really practice teaching and such with three people because its way different. also we are working in two different sectors and in two different wards so thats been a little crazy but has been super fun since it means way more people to teach and lots of work to do :) we have also seen all kinds of miracles. another funny story. we have been trying to help our recent convert nicolas invite his friends to church but he always says they wont want to come because they are athiest, or catholic, or drink, or something but the other day we passed by and he was outside with his friend who is also a member and two friends who arent members (supposedly athiests) and we invited them all to share with us. we watched a video for 2 min then testified about baptism and invited nicolas and his friend who is member to teach them to pray and talk about their baptisms and then we invited the two friends to be baptized and they both said yes and accepted the as the date. let me tell you, the look on nicolas`s face was PRICELESS. he was so shocked and excited. it was awesome. anyway, they both live in other sectors and wards but commited to asist with nicolas and his friend .
oh also they started the construction of the temple in Concepcion this week!!! we got to see the dedication on tv.
anyway, this week was crazy.
