Families are Eternal Killa

Wasssssssup slayas! Today I have some AWESOME questions to answer from my amazing mom.

-This last week has been really good. Really busy but really cool and fun! We had a bunch of mini-miracles this week that were really cool to see!
-I went to Pomeire with Elder McLaws, Cannon, and Arriagada, not Niquet.
-We are going to use Skype. It wouldnt hurt to send the information again just in case.
-Do I have daily habits that bring me closer to the savior. Yes, hahahah lots. Pray every morning, and night, and a LOT in between the two. Another one that has helped me a TON, is reading the Book of Mormon, Preach my Gospel, and Our Heritage daily. I learn sooooo much every day and it strenghtens my testimony!:)
-The branch in Calera de Tango has been in the process of being made for the last 8 months, and now it is finally formed and everything is sick over there!
-We have found a lot of new investigators this week, and i am going to share an experience about one of them at the end of this email.
-At church here in Melipilla, I dont have to do anything because this branch is SO freaking awesome. So I can just listen!
-This saturday we are going to a widows home (who has 5 kids) and we are going to ask permission to clean out all of her backyard! Thought that would be something awesome to do!:)

Okay! So this week was pretty chill, a lot the same! (which is freaking awesome dont get me wrong). Something cool that we did this week was we all went to Talagante (the missionaries of Talagante and Melipilla) and contacted people in the town square during a little Expo that the church put on. While I was there we contacted a TON of amazing people. I also came in contact with a man that got baptized in Calera de Tango while I was there and he is getting married to a lady this Friday! Then they are getting sealed in 1 year from now so I am for sure going to that when it happens! SO COOL. Another little cool act of service that me and my buddy Elder Parker (lives with us) did is we woke up an hour earlier than usual and made a HUGE american type breakfast for our companions (from Peru and Mexico). We made them Pancakes, bacon, eggs, with syrup butter and all the fixings! We all enjoyed eating some good american food this last week for a morning!

Spiritual moment!
Okay so something that happened this week was SO SICK! So, I was on divisions with another Elder (Elder Richards) and we were contacting in our sector to find someone new that could get baptized (#BapSquad). And so we knock on this door across the street from some active members and an 18 year old lets us in. We are talking to him and getting to know him and he tells us that his mom passed away 3 months ago and he is taking care of his paralyzed father and cousins alone. It was so humbling to hear and see all this. So, we start to teach him about the Plan of Happiness... the spirit was SO strong. It was almost tangible. And during the middle of the lesson this young man stops us and asks, ¨Its possible? An eternal family? I can see my mom again?¨ Talk about the spirit standing up and punching me right in the face. It was one of the coolest lessons I have ever had in my mission. So pray for Bruno (thats the kids name).

I loveeeeeeee you all. Be safe everyone and stay SWAGGY!
