Hola! I hope everyone is doing good! I had a great week this week - a little bit different from normal so that was nice! To answer your questions about the new office and stuff: That is the church we are going to be meeting in and stuff. It has the strongest ward in Chile, so that will be pretty sweet! And the office is the little building behind the church, on the bottom left corner on the same property as the church. I still have not seen the inside of it yet. And we live a couple blocks northeast of the church on the street Vergara con Sazie. We just moved in two days ago, so we just travel back and forth to Maipu now. It is a pretty sweet apartment! Nicest I have lived in so far - I will send some pics of it next week.
The baptism of Abraham was great! He had some member friends come in clear from the south of Chile for his baptism, so that was pretty cool, and he was pretty excited about that one. He bore his testimony after and it sounded like he has been a member for a long while already! It was pretty sweet! Tomorrow he is going to be confirmed and get the Aaronic Priesthood, so he is pretty excited about that one, and then later on this week we are gonna try to get some family names and we are gonna go to the temple and do some baptisms for the dead with him! Pretty pumped for that :) You should send me some family names if you have any so I can do them! Anyway it was a pretty good start of a week with the baptism and all, and then last night the other Elders in the office had a wedding for an investigator and a menos activo, and today is the baptism of the investigator that got married yesterday. It was a pretty sweet experience! I was able to do the interview for him and was impressed with him too. There are some great men getting baptized into this ward right now, and tomorrow the sister missionaries are going to baptize three people, so the ward has been pretty excited - it has been good to see them goin!
Today me and Elder Harman got to have a pretty cool experience. President told us that we could go and visit our converts in the Islita and to go help the ward out a little bit, so today we headed over and visited a few people over there. It was his first sector and my second, so we had a ton of fun doing that. People were pretty excited to see us and us them! Had some really good lessons and stuff - was pretty happy for the opportunity to do that and that got me excited to head back into the field again!
Those are some pretty crazy experiences that happened in our ward at home this week! That is really sad about the kid - pretty tough when stuff like that happens. I bet that was pretty tough for the dad. I hope everything is alright there! And good job inviting the people and stuff. That is awesome that you guys are having lessons in the house. That is a missionary's dream to teach lessons in the house of members when the members have invited them - does not get better than that :) Good job Mom and Dad!!
Well I better get going for tonight, but it was great to hear from you! Hey can you guys just make sure I am registered for BYU-I and stuff? Not even sure if I am enlisted for this next semester - might have to call - not sure!!! But thank you!!
I hope you all have a great week this week!!!
