My comp is a stud! Elder Pond is from Washington. He just beat me in basketball. Jakes gotta help me get better. That little kid is from a member's family who lives on our same street. His parents are awesome. They always call us as we are getting to our pension to tell us to run by and grab this scone like things or bread she's made. She's the greatest neighbor to have. It is awesome!
Next week I'll let you know what time we will be talking. I'm sure we will just talk for like a half an hour because ya know. (Editor's note: He may be coming home a few weeks after Mother's Day, but we are pretty sure we will talk more than a half hour!) But you don't need to tell me how many days I have. HaHa My goal is to make the days count, not count the days.
I'm excited to see you guys for sure but will be really sad to leave Chile. I'm going to miss the people more than anything. I'm going to cry again just like when I left Copiapo. But this sector has the best people in the world. I love it and our converts are planning on missions! They're studs. I'll be sad but a bittersweet sad.
Wish Megan luck for me and tell Jake good job! Tell Meg not to worry and just do her best and also to record me a church song! Still waiting...
Well this week was awesome. We have been extremely blessed! We were able to find 12 new people to teach and we took 6 people to Church. We found this kid, Fabian, who has turned his life around. He used to be kind of a punk with bad friends but about two months ago he started to change. And has been away from that kinda stuff for about two months. This week we found him. He's so prepared! He is friends with this girl Camila. She is a member but doesn't go so much but her brought her and told us he wants to go on a mission. Today or tomorrow we are going to try to set a date to be baptized. He needs to go to church 3 times and he went this Sunday. So he could get baptized at the end of this transfer. So we could have three baptisms my last weekend. Blessings right? We have definitely been blessed to see awesome people and have noticed that the Lord is trusting us.
We also talked to Jessica's and Paloma's dad. They live together but we talked about marriage and told them why it is important and if they don't do it they won't have the opportunity to be sealed forever. They said they would talk about and they will plan a date. I won't be here but he is for sure getting baptized as soon as they get a marriage date.. So awesome! I love my mission! I forgot to take pics of our house. It is awesome we have a huge bathroom. I love it adn we have a lot of fun!
Elder Pond and I have the same sense of humor so it's been a fun few weeks. I noticed sometimes I say weird stuff in English so It'll be weird speaking it always.
I heard UVU has a football team.. That would be cool!
Well I love you say HI to everyone for me!
