Happy Fathers Day!

The Qs peeps. :)

-This week has been very good but very frustrating! hhahah its awesome!:)
-I sent a couple letters with Bro. Ortega and my SD cards for you guys to look at the pictures and videos i have taken!
-The cooler weather is VERY nice. And its not humid.... very dry here!
-I dont think I will be with Elder Richards after this week! :( Cuz he is a beast! I am almost sure one of us is leaving the sector...

So it sounds like everything is super chill but crazy at home! oh but firstly.... Happy Fathers Day Pops! I hope you had a great day! I was thinking about you! Everybody seeming to vacation all over the place! Like I said, this week for me has been AWESOME but very frustrating for the fact of the results of the week. We had a lot of tests put in front of us this week that we needed to experience and learn a little bit about patience. We worked very hard this week but it just seemed to be that nobody wanted to open there doors to us or simply didnt answer their doors. And sometimes that happens right? BUT this week we are going to take out the trash and work harder than ever! And I know that we can find miracles and work hard because whom the Lord calls, the Lord qualifies.

Something pretty small but really cool that happened this week was a contact that we had. Soooo like 2 weeks ago we contacted a lady in front of her house, testified the trash out of everything and ended up giving her a pamphlet of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Wellllll like 2 days ago we went by to see how she was and she came running out of the house basically and asking US if we had time to share a message with her. Sadly, she was alone in the house at this time but we rescheduled a time to return to answer her questions. She told us that she read the pamphlet and answered the questions in the back but still has a couple questions in her head that she wants to ask us this next Wednesday. That was just a cool little testimony builder of the fact that I am nothing! The Lord knows all and prepares the people that we are guided to through the Spirit. I know that if we focus on following the Spirit, it will guide us to where we need to go.... choose the right way.... and know what to say at the right moment. I love this gospel!

I love you all sooooo much! When you see the missionaries... let them in your house hahahah and give em so juice or something hahaha. Continue seeking to feel the spirit in your life everyday. I exhort you. 

stay safe

Peace out

So, this week was pretty awesomeeeee but first we gonna straight hit up the questions from the bawwwws.

-I am really good mom. Happy. :)
-The investigators are doing really well. Our miracle couple sadly... relapsed. BUT, we are going to keep helping them so that they can receive what Heavenly Father has promised them since the beginning.
-I didnt get your package this wednesday! I got a lotttt of letters which was AWESOME so thanks for that. :) But hopefully this next pouch!รง
-I would choose thin mints and the ones that have peanut butter in them. Those things are amazingggggg.

Sounds like at my house right now everything is really quiet. Everybody traveling... growing up and doing their things. Super cool! Little vacation for my parents I would say hahaha. :)

So a quick funny story and a quick spiritual one! 

First. So the sector that i am in is actually kinda ghetttttto and so sometimes when we are walking in the road (hahahahaha all the time lets face it) people yell swear words in english at us or just funny things like that. Well, we were walking in the road and a couple gangsters were passing the ball in the street. Well, instead of letting them yell at us i ask them to pass me the ball really quick hahaha. I started juggling then pulled an around the world and back to juggling and a couple other things and everyone just started freaking and saying that a gringo can play soccer hahaha i laughed and we definitely earned points being gringos that day. :)

Something cool that happened this week was that one of our less active members is now active and thinking about serving a mission! He has been attending and been thinking alot about serving! So this next week he is going to talk to the bishop to see what can happen! So cooooool to see people progress.

This week I have been reading alot of the general conference talks and a couple of them have really hit me that I would invite everyone to read. I forget the names but one is by
Elder Holland ¨where mercy, justice, and love meet.¨something like that i believe.
And the Wait, Watch, and Love talk by a member of the seventy. 

i exhort all to read, ponder, and pray about these teachings. I know that our Savior lives and that he paid for our sins. I know that when we accept him, he will help us in everything that we do. I know that the Holy Ghost is our guide to the eternal life. We NEED to follow its promptings. I love you all and pray for you every day! BE SAFE and never be slow to repent!

Hittin that Shot Clock Cheeeeese

WHATS UP DOODS. You know the drill. :)

- I have been pretty solid this week. Went by reallyyyy fast. Half way done with the transfer already. Wowzahs.
- Yes we saw many miracles this week. I will tell them in just a sec. haha
-I havent been taking very many pictures sadly enough.... but i will start taking a lot more i promise!
-I store my pictures in the SD cards that I have and I store them in a safe place. :) As a matter of fact... i might send a couple home to you guys so they are safe in the house and everything and you can look at them.
-It doesnt look like people open the packages but ya can never be sure but i dont think so.
-I think my Eccos will be perfect for the rain and all. Dont worry mom!:)
-I havent used my big coat yet. It is just the perfect temperature right now so I am enjoying it.
-I havent been taking daily vitamins cuz I ate them all but I think I am going to buy some more today!
-YES. MY PACKAGE SHOULD BE HERE THIS WEDNESDAY THEN. Yes, pouch is this wednesday then we get skipped a week.

SO. This week my companion and I have really been working really hard trying to be worthy enough to receive a miracle from God. And it DEFINITELY came. Wowzahs. This week we found Guillermo and Marlene. They are MARRIED (which never happens in Chile.... everyone just wants to freaking live together..... smh) and Marlene has a LOT of problems. When we found her, she was a little drunk but her husband Guillermo was chill. So we started talking to them and Marlene pretty much broke down and told us that she is addicted to alcohol, cigarretes, and drugs. She told us that she has been praying for help.... and BOOM. We arrived. #SoMuchSwag We have been visiting her for 5 days now and she hasnt drunk, smoked, or taken drugs. She came to church and LOVED it and she wants to be baptized the 28th of June. WOW. Hahahahah soooooo sick. And the coolest part? Is that we didnt do anything. God did everything and prepared Guillermo and Marlene for us. I know that when we are obedient, God blesses us. He knows us. He loves us. SO MUCH. I love you guys too. You guys are the bomb and I feel the prayers offered up for the missionaries of the world. Keep staying swaggy and having fun. Remember the Lord in all things that you do.

Goin Hard in the Paint

YOU GUYS. WHATS UP. I am so hypeddddd right now to write home and let you guys know what the heck is happening here in Chile.... but first the AWESOME questions from my mom. :)

-This week was sick mom. :)
-I got the banana bread and granola bars and I ate them all and they were freaking AMAZING. :)
-I havent gotten the postcards yet.... :(
-I saw Elder Brooks at the meeting of transfers.... but besides that no.
-I have no idea who dropped the photos of my mission off at the house... weird but cool!
-Nelson Spolmann is a freaking beast. He was my favorite teacher in the CCM. He is super hilarious! If you see him tell him hi for me.
-I heard about Elder Perry. Sad, but we know where he is and I am SURE that he is happy. :)

So yeah killas. This week was actually pretty tight. We found a couple new folks who are honestly superrrrr sick, but we really focused this week on the members that havent been to church in a very long time. So we straight went ham visiting people and really trying to figure out: Why they havent come to church in such a long time. We really tried to focus on them and their needs, and we ended up having a LOT of these members come back to church with us!:) One of them hadn´t come to church for 35 years..... wowzahs. :)

Sounds like from my family everybody is just straight growing up.... getting ready to get married.... destroying my old car..... killin it in dance. Weird but super cool.

But this email is gonna be pretty short. Christ lives and is our Savior. The Lord knows all and everything that he does. Callings in the church are inspired. We will come to accept that as we gradually become more and more humble. I testify that the priesthood authority is on the earth and gives us the opportunity to be sealed as a family for the eternities. I love you all and hope that you are all safe and living worthily to go to the temple.
