Holy Flem....

Sooooo this is going to be a quicky hahah. :) BUT to empezar... the questions peeps.

-I finally got my Birthday package! Woooooohooooo I freaking loveee it. As you can see I used the scarf as seen is this photo.
-In this ward I almost never have the opportunity to bless the sacrament because there are enough young men to do it!

ALRIGHTY, so this week was CRAZY! We had changes and yes there was a little bit of a change for my companion and I...

We received 2 more other sectors and combined it with our old one. SO... now our sector is HUGE. Hahah but I loveee it. :) We are super excited to work and we are working a TON. My companion is just such a beast hahahah. :)

So, this week we had a baptism! It was so cool. His name is Felipe (a different Felipe than the one that has to get married). HE IS A MACHINE. HAhah he totally understands the gospel and is going to be an amazing priesthood holder. It was an amazing experience. Something else that happened this week was a lesson with an investigator that we are teaching. His name is Alvaro. We taught the Plan of Salvation and explained the Atonement.... and GEEZ you guys the spirit was so stong it was incredible. We invited Alvaro to be baptized and he told us no at first because he wasnt sure because he knew the importance of the baptism and the commitment it would be between him and God. But he said that He thinks that these things are true but wants to ask God if they are to be sure. WELL, at the end of the lesson we asked Him to say the final prayer and he did.... and he totally asked if all these things are true right then and there in front of us! HOLY cow. Please, pray for Alvaro that he can recognize the answer from God when it comes. I know He is going to be baptized soon because he is a beast. HAhah but it was legit one of the coolest lessons of my entire mission. :)

Well, I gotta go but i love you all. BE SAFE and keep sharing the gospel. GIVE REFERENCES to the missionaries. I beg of ya´ll.

Soooo weird that I am emailing on a Tuesdayyyy but i can explain hahaha

-The mail weeks are very weird mom... i honestly dont even know how they work anymore but i am going to try to get my package tomorrow. :)
-We have Zone Conferences when President tells us to have them. they are pretty random. :)
-My clothes are holding up great... i bought a fresh pair of Gs the other day. Heck ya
-My shoes are holding up great! Thanks mom. :)
-The investigators are doing great that need to be married. Their names are Felipe and Andrea. 

Well, this week has been celestial. We took out the trashhhhhh and had a GREAT time. Well--

To explain things first. In the mission our Pday is now Tuesday. Thats about the only thing I know at this point. Tomorrow we are going to know more things. BUT, something I do know is that my companion and I are staying in Melipilla! Hahaha holy cow I am going to be here at the very least 7 1/2 months.... pretty long time! I love it here. :) Sadly... Elder Parker and Elder Cummings are leaving. :( They got straight white washed out of there. :( So yeah.

Something cool that happened this week (and kinda lame) was that my companion was pretty sick. So we had to come back to the house for a little bit and he laid down to rest and asked for a priesthood blessing. So, I gave him one... he laid down (no joke) for 5 minutes and got back up and felt GREAT so we were able to immediately start working again! SO SICK. I was soooo happy. :) My companion is a beast. We get along pretty well hahah. :)

We also had the priveledge to go to the temple (all the trainers and their companions) to go through a session. WOW did I need that. It was pretty incredible. The spirit is so strong in the temple you can touch it i swear. I love that place and I testify that it is the closest we can get to heaven here on earth.

I also received a good lesion to the face this week hahahah. Elder Cummings, Elder Parker, and I were all wrestling and fighting have a good ole time when Elder Parker just lands on my face and I got a funny looking cut on my temple hahha. So that was pretty fun. We have had a great time with these Elders and they are great examples to me.

Bueno... to end I would like to testify of the power of the Priesthood. What a blessing to have the priesthood to be healed... comforted... baptized... sealed. I know that the Priesthood is a blessing for all mankind. That if held worthily, is the connection between the temporal and spiritual things. So tight. :) I love this Gospel and I know it is true. Christ lives and is our Savior.

Okay... I see you killa.

Heyyyyyy everybody!!! This week was amazing!:) But I am going to start with the questions from my mother real quick. :)

-Your boy is good. Really good and happy!:)
-This week was pretty awesome. I stayed really warm. Just wore my sweater around. I havent used the big coat yet but I am thinking that this week I will because it is going to rain alot. :(
-I dont ever play the piano here. The ward has like 4 people who play the piano very well. :(
-I got my hump day package!!!!! WHOOO I totally wear the camel shirt to bed every night. Its the best hahaha. :) THANKYOU SO MUCH. Also a HUGE shout out to the Brophy family from California. Thankyou so much for the card. :) I love you guys so much!!! Not to mention also mom.... the choice of cookies that you put in there.... INCREDIBLE. I almost vomited it was so good.
-The family night topic could be about humility and pride. Go to preach my gospel mom and there are plenty of scriptures you can choose. :)

So this week was tighhhhht. :)

So this week as missionaries we organized an activity for the ward about missionary work. :) So we called it the night of deserts! Everyone that came brought a desert to share and there were prizes for various things like: flavor, presentation, texture, etc. (so everybody got a certificate) and played a couple games then we ate all the deserts together! What does that have to do with missionary work right? Well, as missionaries (because we are 8 in the ward) we put on a play for all the members.) We made skits of us tracting and knocking on doors and how sometimes the people will reject us etc. So we showed them that situation... then we showed them the situation of when the members give us references and how effecient it is. (i know my spelling is bad... i am sorry... my grammar too i am sure) So it was pretty funny and spiritual. I wore my camel shirt in front of everybody hahaha. :)

But a cool quick spiritual story was this Thursday. My companion and I left the house and it was pretty clear outside and warm. Well, mid-day it starts POURING rain and my companion and I were outside knocking on doors for a couple hours in this pouring rain. So finally, in the street the zl´s called us asking if we were cold (hahahah i have no idea why but they are hilarious) So i told them yes and asked if they would pray for us that we can get in a house. So they told us they would. We also stoppped in that moment and said a prayer that we could knock on a door and they would let us in to teach them the gospel. Well, we finished the prayer and knocked on the door in front of us and guess what happened? Yeah dude they totally let us in!:) We taught about the Restoration and they said they would read and pray. :) Amazing how prayer works.

When life gets too hard to stand, kneel. May we stay close to the ground and be humble and ask God for divine help. He knows us and hears us. 

I love you all so much. :)

Today we went was superrrr tight and I played decent haha :)
