Week 67-November 10, 2015
haha ya i put about half my mission on a pen drive but after that i havent done it..ill do it next week. and ya i sent pics of danielas baptism too...? anyway i dont have the camera cord today but next week ill send them again and such. right now im in Olimpo, which is in the city Maipu. you can google map it if you search OHiggins with Teniente Bello (where we live) or the street Cuatro Poniente with Nueva San Martin (our sector) ..both are in Maipu, like 15 min in auto from the plaza of Maipu. the church we go to is in German Garces with Barros Luco, but those are smaller streets so not sure if you will be able to find it. its in the sector of the elders, not ours, and yes its warm here now. pretty hot actually. using lots of sunscreen this year because i have like a million new wrinkles under my eyes from last year..the sun here is SUPER strong because there is no ozone over Chile . and no i havent gotten a package from the primary kids yet but i decided to tough out the blisters and wear the Toms and other shoes you sent and they are working :) thanks a ton. also sounds like you guys had a good week! and that the YW lesson was great and the Primary program was fantastic. but im a little confused as to why you guys are always crying, during the primary program, in lessons, etc?.. either my family got like hyper spiritual while ive been gone or mom is getting older and her daughters are exactly the same...haha :P just kidding.
crazy to hear that natalie is my height now! woo hoo!! twins!! also ive noticed that in almost every picture of her she is wearing something of mine ..;) glad to know my clothes are going to good use..:P
anyway, i am doing fantastic. its been a great week, FULL of miracles. the biggest miracle of all was, when we had 4 investigators in church!!! RacheL and fransisca, tamara and her son Vicente(3 years old), and Ariel (who even came in a suit!!) it was awesome. the members helped us go around in auto and pick them all up and greeted them with tons of love afterwards. it was great... and the crazy thing was that none of them answered the phone in the morning when we called to wake them up and such so i thought they were all sleeping and we almost didnt go pick them up but we decided to go and see and they were all ready and waiting. it was amazing. also nicolas and isidora (our recent converts) were there. anyway, rachel and fransisca are awesome and rachel, the mom, is just looking for an answer from God to know if this is the right path for her family. she has cancer and it has made even her husband (theyre married!!! its a miracle!!!!) , who had kind of lost his faith, super receptive. also Ariel is progressing and the members have been great accompanying us and such to visit him because he lives alone. and tamara has tons of questions and is great too :) second miracle of the day , we were knocking doors and decided to go look for an old investigator whose name was in our area book and we found a woman named Silvia. she let us in, cried as she toldus about her feelings for God and her doubts and we invited her to baptism and she said yes. we invited her to prepare for the 28th and she said yes. the next day we taught lesson 1 and invited her to read and pray and come to church. she said yes, of course!. and to keep preparing for baptism, and she said yes. haha even the member with us starting laughing at how willing and excited she was. she is seriously a miracle. and she seperated from her pareja (husband she wasnt married to) like 2 months ago, so now she can be baptized! woo hoo!
anyway, that was our week. we are doing great, being blessed like crazy. love and miss you all!
