The Weekly Email :)

Hey Everybody! Obviously there are no questions today for a good reason... because we got changed P-Days back to Mondays! 

So, this last week was just pretty crazy! A lot of crazy things happened! :) Les explico. 

-Firstly, last week President just called all of the mission and said SUPRISE CHANGES! Hahahah I am not sure why but it was pretty funny and very unexpected. So, Elder Clegg got called and we showed up on Wednesday in Maipú and he had transfers to TALAGANTE... in my old sector hahahaha. So funny. And I received Elder Mertz! Its funny because I only have 3 weeks here in the ward.. and he has like 3 days so we are both getting to know our sector and the people... and the zone. A lot of stuff to do. :) 

Secondly, we had a meeting with President on Thursday where he explained to us that we are going back to the old schedule because the First Presidency has asked that all the missions be the same. So, from now on I will be writing on MONDAYS. :)

Now that that is all clear. 

This week was great. We are being very blessed by the Lord with a ton a new people who have been prepared to receive the gospel in their lives.

Something really cool that happened this week was that we had the opportunity to go on divisions with missionaries from the MTC here in Chile. I left with an Elder Beard from Herriman UT. Even though he couldnt speak a TON, such a stud. We were able to invite 3 people to baptism and you better believe this stud invited them all! Truly incredible how the Lord makes us instruments in His hands. When I would stop teaching and look at him to have him teach he would ask me ¨What do I say?¨ and I would say ¨Testify, or ¨invite to baptism¨, or ¨explain the Restoration.¨ And even though the words came out a little shaky.. or not 100% correct, there was no doubt that these people we were talking to could feel the spirit. It is so powerful how the Lord uses US (18,19,20 year olds) to preach His amazing Gospel.

Holy monkey I just love the mission. I just love this gospel and my Savior Jesus Christ. I can feel His love that He has for me through studying the scriptures. Today I came across this verse:
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.Revelation 21: 3-4
May we study the scriptures daily! I invite all to seek to feel the love our Savior has for us through daily scripture study!
I love you all so much! Keep killin it and share the gospel!!!!!!!!
Ya boy
