A lady asked me to marry her yesterday...

Tell Hayden congrats, that’s awesome about his call! I know he will love it.

My new comp is pretty cool, he talks a ton more than my last comp and we've been working way hard. This week we got 4 investigators to church, and the awesome guy I told you about said he got an answer. He said when he prayed he felt something and could sleep really well that night. It’s awesome, I hope we can get a date set, he wants to wait but we gotta talk to him. 

Nothing too new this week, besides I had to conduct Sacrament meeting. It was kinda of cool, but not that big of a deal because there were only 13 of us ha. Still kinda of cool. We are finding people, including a lady who asked me to marry her yesterday ha, she was drunk and hitting on me bad, so we had to leave quick. But we taught two doctors and have a return appointment with a lawyer. We did contacts in the rich sector haha, but it’s cool.

Nothing else really, sounds like you and dad had a good weekend. Hope you guys are having fun, keep me updated. I got to write a few people, but I love you- talk to you next week!

See ya ha,

So, you guys are here to help people get to the celestial kingdom huh?

Kinda weird to me that it’s so cold for you guys cause it’s just getting crazy hot here. I’m starting to get burned, ha and there is NEVER clouds in this city. 

So we had transfers this week, I’m getting a new companion. I forgot his name but he is from Uruguay and has the same time as me. We left on the mission the same day and I hear his cool so we will see, should be fun. I’ll let you know how he is.

This week was an awesome week. We’re just looking for people, and we find one of the best investigators I think I’ve had in my mission. We taught him the restoration and he understood it all then was like, is there more that you can teach me? We were like uhhhh yeah, let’s teach the next lesson! So we taught the plan of salvation and he said something like, you guys are here to help people get the celestial kingdom huh? Ha, I was like, pretty much! Oh and he speaks English, so I taught a little bit in English so he could practice with me. It was awesome, I would hang with this kid, and he’s like 22 I think. He’s going camping and he says he’s going to pray while he is camping, away from technology and everything, to get his answer. I’m stoked!

Then this girl who was working with is waiting for her Dad to let her get baptized, but her mom is good with it, so she might just sign the registry and let her get baptized. Which would be awesome! I love doing this, it’s so cool, ha.

Anyways, Things are good here. I keep having dreams that I’m home which is weird. I hope all is well there and that you have fun in the snow, hahaha.

Love you guys take care!

My Christmas and New Years was awesome!

My Christmas and New Years was awesome! Yeah sorry, I forgot to write about it. I loved talking to you guys, it was awesome to see home and everything. I thought for sure it would make me trunky or miss home, but really it just made me realize I’ll be there soon enough and right now I just gotta work, ya know.

But Christmas was awesome here.  In Chile, they celebrate it at 12 midnight, so they open all their presents and everything at 12 then the next day they play with them. So Christmas night we spent with this family the Varas and their daughter who is absolutely horrible, but so funny. I'll send you pictures. They got us some presents like chocolate I think, but it was cool. Then, during the day we were at the Presidents house who you all met, it was awesome, they’re cool.

New years was with a family, the Gallagiyos, (the family that buys me peanut butter). We did all these funny traditions like running up the stairs, eating nasty beans, and sweeping the steps. I guess it’s good luck or each one means something, haha. I was like you believe in all that, and they said no, its just for fun ,ha. 

That’s really it, we just kept working after. The work has been tough in this area. Finding people that are here and actually are gonna stay here during summer is kinda tough. My city is just like a work house for all these rich people, ha. But we’ve been working hard. We have a few potential baptisms like Francisca who is talking with her Dad , then after she’ll hopefully get baptized. 
Then were meeting with this lady who has been to Church four times and isn’t baptized. Kinda is a joke that she hasn’t been baptized yet, but we will see what we can do. It’s a hard sector, but its cool, the houses and the members, just a lack of people. But we’re gonna keep working hard.

Thanks again for the packages and all the cards that I got, I’m lazy with writing so just email me.
Thanks and ill send some pics right now love you guys!
