1. My week was pretty good. Me and E Warrick are working really hard. :) The family of 6 is superrrrr awesome.... but they didnt assist church this week... :( But its okay. NEXT week. :)
2. Yes we have 8 new investigators. :) (Fanny, Waldo, Mari, Maria and others:) )
3. I did what you told me and went and bought myself something good. :) hahahaha you are seriously the best mom. :) I went and got Black Shoe Shining stuff because I am almost out, a bag of these little cookies, ice cream, and nutella. :) WOOHOOOOO NUTELLA. Literally nutella gives me life. I also found duct tape which is awesome:)
4. I havent tried the doughnuts here.... but they dont have homeade doughnuts here.... sooooooo prettty much they havent lived.
5. The language is slow but coming along. E. Warrick says I talk in my sleep every single night in spanish so yes I am dreaming in spanish ahahaha:)
6. I use my sleeping bag like every other week so yes I am storing it properly hahaha:)
7. I am so jealous that you made caramels last night.... I want some:)
8. I havent gotten a scripture cover yet, I am going to buy one right before the end of my mission so it stays nice. :) Because they are really expensive.
9. I havent gone on splits with ma boi E Brady yet but today was his birthday so we celebrated with pizza!!!:)

Y ESO. :) (Thats it)

But this week was pretty solid. Some of the cool things that happened areeee:
During a lesson with Gloria, a menos activo (less active), she invited her kids down to come listen... well, they arent members so we were teaching them and after, Gloria testified of the truthfulness of the gospel WITH us to her kids. It was so awesome. So pretty much we are gonna get wet.
Also, our amazing investigator Pohl told us that he wants to get baptized. :) So cool. Soooo he just needs to come to church now. It is so hard for us to get investigators to church because it is 45 minutes away! But its all goooooood killas. :) So we are going to continue to teach him. He is such a good friend to us. he feeds us lunch all the time and next pday we are going mt. biking with him hahaha he is the bees knees. :)

Not a lot really happened this week... hahahah the days blend so its hard to remember plus everything was just normal this week so I am going to kind of just give everyone a run down of the schedule so you know what normal is.

6:30 Wake up
8 Personal Study
9 Companion study
11 Idioma Study (Language)
12 Leave the House
2ish Almuerzo with a Family (Lunch)
3-9:30 Teach and Preach and Freaking Do Work :) It is super bakan.

Anyways... kind of a slow week. Mainly because Friday and Saturday and Sunday ALL of our appointments fell through so we just walked around and contacted people... Sorry peeps!:) But keep in tuned because I about ready to bust a baptism cap. :)

Well, since it is really close to Halloween... (which i am so jealous I am not in the states for this because it is such a freaking sweet holiday) I am going to leave ya´ll with a sweet picture of what me and E. Warrick are this year (Yes E Warrick wore that mask on the way home on his bike and scared people... yes it was awesome) HAHAHAHA JK because I just looked and the computer I have doesnt have a port for my camera.... all the suspense for nothing.... Next week chicos!:)

YO WASSUP ALL YOU KILLAS AROUND THE FETCHING WORLDDDDD.... Just kidding more like Utah... hahaha but sick! Yeah this week was pretty normal but super sick! This week was changes soooooo......... I stayed in Calera de Tango with E. Warrick!:) SICKKKKKKK. AND, we didnt lose E. Brady either which is sick as all fetch because the kid is a legend. Yeah, as always, I am going to start with my mommies questions because she is the bee´s knee´s.

1. I am good Mom. How are you?:) Hahahaha
2. I didnt get on divisions with E. Brady this week... hopefully soon. :)
3. The next time I meet with Pres. Barreiros... I dont know... I was with him today so I couldnt tell yaaa. Why?:)

This week was pretty interesting actually... It kind of went like this.

First.... Last monday night we went to our vecino house (neighbor) because we had contacted them and they said we could come over. Well, it is 3 people. The mom, and 2 boys. One of them is 8 and the other is 11. The 11 year olds name is Niko! Well...... Niko is awesome hahahah he has more energy than a 468 volt battery. Well, after having juice and teaching Niko decides to plant a big fat kiss on my cheek..... I was straight like ¨What the fetch was that?!¨ I was straight gonna punch a churo. Hahahah so yeah that was straight ratchet...

Also, this week E. Warrick biffed twice on his bike. Hahahah and HARD. The first time he ran into a cement pole going 235 mph and the second time his front wheel came off so he did a front flip into gravel..... I didnt laugh............ Hahahaha just kidding I was dying afterwards.

This week we also went on a hike up a pretty decent sized mountain for a youth activity and taught a lesson. It was AWESOME. I will attach pictures at the bottom. :)

I also was extremely inspired by the words of E. Brady this week the night before a baptism at the church. Hahahahahaha this kid man tells me ¨Yeahhhh buddy we finna get wet.¨ ¨White errrrywhere.¨ ¨Doin it wit no handssss.¨ Hahahahahaha i diedddddd. Those are my new slogans.

Probably the most interesting thing I have done in my lifetime is deliver the sacrament to a contracting women... Yes... This happened. We walk in this house to give a Hermana the sacrament and she be straight sweatin bullets errywhere and was in a lot of pain. I told E. Warrick I was about to strap on the helmet and just take the baby like a snap if I had to. Hahahahahha it was awesome. Luckily she didnt give birth right at that moment but I am pretty sure she had the baby last night. :)


Yeah. So during our lesson with Niko and his mom, a random man (like 22 years old) named Pohl walks in the house and in English says ¨Hey, why havent you come to my house to talk in english and teach me about Jesus?¨ Me and E. Warrick kind of just looked at each other for a second hahahaha. So, we set up a cita with him the next day. Well, long story short we have gone to his house 4 days in a row and he is progressing super fast and really well. We are going to his house tonight after writing! He just keeps on inviting us back!!! Its SO cool and I get to teach in English so that is sick as fetch.

Soooooooo, yeah. Thats about it for this week. But look forward to this next week because it is gonna get real awesome here soon I can feel it. I am going to have a RATCHET SICK story next week for all the slayas in the UT.

Hopefully I will have some news with Pohl and our other progressing family of 6 about baptismal dates. ¨We finna get wet.¨

Stay swaaggy. Dont eat clams (Yes i had to choke down clams this week... It was like trying to eat battery acid).
I love you all. Seriously stay safe at home!:)

Yeah. I just did that in the title. Try to translate it. YA CAN´T. Welcome to CHILE where words dont mean anything.

Yeah, so anyways. This week was wicked fetching fast but it felt like last P-Day was 45 years ago. Weird. Hahahah.

As always, my Mom´s Questions first because she is the bomb.

-My week was psyco as fetch. It was pretty solid week. Hard and busy but good. :) I didnt get to go on divisions with E. Brady this week because he is literally dying of Bronchitis and Pnuemonia:/ Entonces please pray for him! But, I did stay at his house for a night and got to talk to him alot. He is sooooooo sick hahahaha i freaking love that kid. We both like the same music and he even plays some CoD hahahaha. We joked around a lot and I am definitely glad to have met him. Hopefully this next week I will go on splits with him! Also, besides that me and E. Warrick made some chanta (literally means false, or doesnt work but it also means bad or ratchet) cookies. Hahaha we had a ward activity ¨Noche de Postres¨ (The night of deserts) and so we had to make cookies. Hahahahah we burnt those cookies. I was almost tempted to scratch them off and make a crumble for a yogurt parfè. Hahaha i dunno.
E. Warrick and I also made friends with the flightays (Gangsters) here in Calera de Tango. hahaha they are so ratchet but they love us because we played them in soccer. Me and E. Warrick literally stayed on the court (yes a court because its on cement) for an hour straight because they couldnt run because everyone was as high as a kite smoking. Soooooo... I am pretty sure I am safe here because Titi (Yes that is a name.... I shook my head too) knows everyone around here and loves us. Hahaha.
-Yes, I am aware that transfer week is this next week. I almost have 2 changes under my belt. You could pretty much call my a seasoned greenie. Or a Chilean. Either or. A Chilean that still can´t speak fluent Spanish. SICK. hahahah

So, yeah, this week was pretty normal.... as usual ya know.... hahah


So, me and E. Warrick found a Menos Activo (Less Active Member... REALLY less active) that hasn´t been to church in over 20 years. She got baptized and went for 3 weeks then stopped. And we visited her on Saturday and taught her a lesson and asked her to come to church... and she said YES. Booyahhhh. So, she came to church with us and in church we had a lesson about being sealed as a family for eternity. Well, Pilar (the name of the menos activo) had lost her husband 2 years back and during this lesson the spirit obviously really touched her heart because afterwards she set up an interview with the Bishop to ask him the requirements to go to the temple and be sealed. HOLY COW MONKEY. I was/am SO happy. So, she says that she wants to continue to come to church and many other things. Pretty awesome and I cant wait to continue to teach her and help her towards the temple. :) We will see what happens!

So yeah, thats this week ladies and gents. Before I finna dip I am just going to throw out a wicked shout out to my family. I seriously have the greatest family on this earth. I couldnt ask for anything more. I am faulta (short) 21 1/2 months, but I can´t wait to hangout with my family when I get home. Especially the swagiest kid on the entire planet, my brother Palmer (Hahaha he is probably reading this and thinking ¨nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo¨ hahahahaha). Brutha, we are going to go snowboarding together when I get home and this time I wont yell at you hahahahaha. :) Naw but seriously, I seriously cant wait to hangout with my older sister madi and tell mission stories, take my little brother and sister out to lunch every week while they are in school. :) And, I cant wait to give my parents the BIGGEST freaking hug on the planet when I get back and help my dad mow the lawn some more and cook dinner for my mom. (Save this email mom.... its your receipt:))) ) But yeah. I just love them hahaha. :)


I love you all. Literally. You are all so amazing. Stay swaggy. Karate Chop a freaking mosquito.

Oh speaking of... I guess there is a spider in Chile that if you get bit, it causes death or necrosis to your limbs............................... What the flem.

CHAO! :)

Don´t try to translate that because it wont make sense because it is some wicked slang here in the country of buses who dont like to pick up missionaries. Hahahah yeah... so that ¨po¨ word is the weirdest word on the planet and I didnt know what the freak people were talking about the first week I was in the field. The closest thing I can think of to it is eh in Canada. Po is put at the end of whatever word you feel and it doesnt mean anything... I almost puked everywhere when I figured out it didnt mean anything and it is used so much. AHahhaa but its chill... i. If you get that I love you.

My mommas questions firsssssst because she is ¨the man¨
-Did I listen to conference? Naw mom I ditched at went to Taco Bell. Hahaha noooo of course I watched it!!! It was freaking awesome and I am going to talk about it later.
-I watched it in English thank goodness but my last one I am going to watch in Spanish.
-Conference in the Mission Field is the equivalent to the World Cup or March Madness at home. Hahaha it is really different. In a really good way and I love it so much.
-Elder Warrick has been in the field for 13 months now.

Yeah, so here is how my week went:
On Tuesday me and Elder Warrick played futbol with a bunch of high guys and contacted them shortly after. It was awesome and they said next time we play they will let us teach a whole lesson because we wrecked them.
I also recieved my pictures my mom sent me on Tuesday and holy cow I couldn´t stop smiling at them. They have pictures of my family (extended tambien), friends, my dog, me playing minecraft, and swag. I laughed and got really trunky looking at them but absolutely love them. I think I look at them every single day. I literally asked my mom for a couple pictures and she makes me a scrapbook type thing with so much work put into it. Wow.... She is amazing and my hero (Shout out to Moms around the world #BapSquad #RaiseTheRoof)
Then on Wednesday I went on Divisions with Elder Walker. Divisions is leaving your companion and going with another missionary for the day and night. Plot twist... Elder Walker has the exact same time as me hahahahhaah so we both were walking around speaking broken spanish and understanding -43% of what everyone was saying. Hahahaha it was super bakan and I loved it. 
I also got to see all the newbies again and me and Elder Brooks and Elder Johnson just talkedddd and talkedddd and talkeddddd. They are awesome and I cant wait to see them again in 2.

By far my favorite conference. It is different on the mission.... I dunno know how to describe it but its awesome. I really really really enjoyed Henry B Eyring´s talks. He is amazing and definitely my favorite. Specifically I loved his talk about his story about his mom and profets. Haha he talked about how when he came home at night he would always try to sneak past his moms door and make it downstairs but she would always be awake. When he said that I really honestly starting laughing inside because it is the exact same with me hahahah. I dont think I have come home at night and my mom or dad arent awake. It really hit me on how much they care and that decision they made to stay up affected me. I hated it to be honest but it taught me a good lesson. Talk about the best parents ever.

Tambien (also) when something is repeated it usually means that its really important and there were 3 phrases that were repeated and I think they describe the whole conference.
1. If you love me, keep my commandments. (Cheryl Esplin, Dallin H. Oaks, Jorg Klebinjit)
The whole conference every person seemed to be talking about commandments and the prophet. It is SO important that we keep the commandments. Not even the slightest degree of sin is acceptable in the sight of God. Also, something that really hit me and that I am probably going to use alot here is A god who has low standards is a God who doesnt exist.
2. Decisions Determine Destiny (Quentin L. Cook, President Thomas S. Monson)
Alot in this conferencia was about AGENCY tambien. We have the free will to choose. This reminds me of a couple menos activos (ugh my spanglish hora, Less actives) said that church takes up too much time. People work on this earth correct? Why? To live of course... we need the money to live. Why do we go to church and keep the commandments? To live... in the next life. We are reserving a spot in the celestial kingdom. Dont mess up.
3. Lift up the hands that hang down. (Eduardo Gauarret, President Thomas S. Monson)
Alot was also about the poor and afflicted. We need to give what we can to them because we have been given much, therefore we must give.

I know these things are true and I love this gospel. We can stay close to the Lord through listening to the words on the Prophet and the 12 Apostoles (Spanish I forgot how to spell i in english haha).


Funny moment tambien is I wanted to tell my mom how much freaking veggies and fruit I am eating here. Like, times what I used to eat at home in fruits and veggies by 10 and that is whaat I am eating. So like 10 a day hahaha. Love you all CHAOOOOOOO.
