The Last Supper.... of Elder Mendoza


-Yes, this is my last week with my companion Elder Mendoza because he goes home. :(
-I wont know who my new companion is until Wednesday.... so you are all going to have to wait. :(
-I have started using the audio thingy a ton so I can send recordings to you guys!
-In the ward i am serving in, there are about 155 people that attend regularly.
-We meet in a pretty big chapel.
-I dont ride a bike in this area. 

Well, this week has been absolutely amazing. We have had a TON of things to do this last week but it was all worth it. A couple things we did this week are the following:

Well, we had a meeting with Pres. Barreiros this week which was soooo amazing. We talked about the light that we, as missionaries, have. The light we have (also as members of the Church) is an example to those who can see.

For example. The ward you serve in sees the light and excitement a missionary has when he arrives his first Sunday. The people in the street that see us can see the smile on our face that says ¨Yes, we are truly happy.¨ Its the sickest thing ever. We need to help others not only see this light... but feel the light within themselves. How? Through sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ! I invite all to think of the blessings and happiness the gospel has brought to your life and share it with others. Visit the sick and weary. Help the poor and needy. I promise God will bless you.

The second thing that was tight was the baptism of Felipe Riquelme. HE FINALLY GOT IN THE WATER. Heck yeah. Well, this last week he had actually asked me to baptize him. So, we traveled to Melipilla (with the consent of Pres.) and I was able to help in that sacred ordinance. Here is a picture hahaha

I love you all. Be safe and live the gospel. I testify there is not a greater joy felt than that of the Gospel.

Christ lives! Hurrah for Israel!!!! hahaha

La Hiel.


-Everything is great in Talagante. Workin hard!
-You found the right belt... you are amazing mom.
-My ward is Talagante 2
-I dont know a Muñoz family.... what ward are they from?
-Manuel and Camila are great! they didnt come to church this week though which was kinda lame but next week for sure!
-It isn't for sure how many times we go to the temple... but i think at least once every 2 months!
-The wedding of Felipe and Andrea was this morning but i wasnt able to go because the wedding services here are on strike... so dumb hahaha

I have to be SUPER fast today so this email is going to be superrrr short for the worlds (#Famous)

Well, this week was amazing. Working hard and seeing the Lord´s hand in everything we do. We have found other investigators of whom we are going to put more baptismal dates so that they can receive the remission of their sins. FREAKING LOVE THE MISSION. SO amazing.

I am going to close with a short testimony. I know Christ lives and paid for all of our sins. I know that when we are disobedient, we cannot receive the blessings He has in store for us. An elder this week asked me that... what am i doing, that makes Christ suffer more? (I puked then thought about it). May we all ask ourselves this question and make the changes necessary to receive exaltation. I love you all and I love this gospel! BAPTIZE THE WORLD KILLAS

Breathe, Eat, Sleep Baptisms. -President Barreiros

Hey everybody!!! :) I hope everybody is doing just splendid. Going to throw a quick shoutout to the Brophy Family (world-wide) for just straight bein killas.

-New or excited in Talagante. Yes!!! This week was a week of MIRACLES. Elder Mendoza and I were very much blessed by the Lord and we brought 5 investigators to church this week. It was INCREDIBLE. So, we are praying and acting that we can baptize these next 3 weekends of this change (the last change of my companion.) 
-We find the majority of our investigators knocking on doors.
-Well... funny story. So in Melipilla this weekend there is a baptism of a girl Elder Lozano and I taught and the investigator that is getting married the next weekend (24 Oct.) which I am going to be able go to!:) SO TIGHT!
-They do celebrate Halloween here but its like...... pretty lame to be honest waaa.
-The book you sent me was the Infinite Atonement! I am in the process of reading it.

So this week, like i have mentioned earlier was just full of miracles. These first 3 weeks Elder Mendoza and I have been tested in trying to put baptismal dates with our investigators but yesterday we were able to put 3 new baptismal dates with our investigators. They are married and expecting a little girl next month! So please pray for Manuel and Camila!

This week we also went HAMBONI in the pension we live in, and deep cleaned that trash (I went Angela-status up in there.) Its very true that you feel the spirit in a clean and organized house... (thanks mom.) :)

As a matter of fact, shout out to my mother for being amazing. I love you so much mom. You are the best ya know? Being a mother is a GRAND responsibility and thank goodness my Mom is really good at it. :) I hope that one day I can marry a woman like my mother.

Something amazing that happened this week was that I had the opportunity to go to the temple. The temple of Santiago is very very very close to a very busy road that tends to be very loud.... but when you enter you could NEVER guess that you are right next to a road. What a blessing we have to have temples on the earth. I know it is the house of the Lord.

I love you all so much. Everybody be safe! I am praying constantly for you all! Please include my companion and I in your prayers!

Hahahah sorry I put the subject of the email like that because it was the first word that came to my mind when I saw my brothers school picture hahahahahaha

The Q´s
-I watched the Conference in the Stake Center of Talagante, I watched it in english:)
-I like being in the apartment with my comp... usually because I am more focused... but it is also really edifying and fun with 4 in a house... but either way!
-I am actually working in Talagante. :)
-We teach all 30 in the Zone every week.
-We go by inspiration. Look at how the missionaries are doing and how they are working and pray for the spirit to guide us!
-Experience of the week.

Well, this week was honestly amazing. Getting to know my sector, getting used to the Zone, and just have a great time. My companion and I have been working very hard this last week looking for new people to teach and baptize. So, with that being said we have been contacting and asking for references alot. Well, on Saturday night, after the conference, we went running around contacting everybody in sight hahaha. Well, with no success for an hour and 58 minutes (we had to be heading back to the house in 2 minutes) we said that we would ¨knock one more door.¨ Well, when we did, Gonzalo came out and immediately let us in. We started teaching him and asking him questions about his family and he told us that he would love to see his mother who had recently died again. We obviously began to teach him about the Plan of Salvation in which he loved. He gave us his phone number and asked us to come back another day. Today we are going to go back and we are going to invite him to be baptized for the 18th of October. Please pray for him! :) 

I love this gospel and that God is a God of miracles. May our motto be, ¨One more door.¨ May we never give up and always take in account the Atonement of our Savior. I know He lives and loves every one of us. I know he looks at us as who we can become, not as who we are or who we were before. May we ask whatwe need to change in our lives to more completely live the Gospel and help others come unto Christ. I know Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet. What a blessing to be able to listen to the prophet from all ends of the earth. 

I love you all! You all the bomb. :)
