¿Comment çe va? And the 18th!!!!! Yeah!!!

Hey!!! Wow this was a great week! 
I learned a Lot of french this week with a french class with the Hiatians!! That was fun!!
I am Huaso... 
When we went to San Gregorio, we found that no one was un the streets, that everyone in the whole town was in the high school gym. For the Queca competitivo (national dance of Chile!) 
Then on the way back we talked with our taxi driver who Is from Italy! A Lot and well he ended up inviting us to his house and committing himself to go to church! When we showed him where it is! 
So the week was real good!

Great Week/ Crazy Week!

Here´s a sweet pic of the sector to make up for the lack of pictures I have! haha 
But this week was really awesome! I got to go to Conce again! And see a bunch of people that I haven't seen in a while like Elder Colman! For a training leader thing or other.
And then Probably the coolest thing from the week was Sunday. At Church. We had 3 come. But One of them was a Hiatian! Alíx! And everyone loved him!! They gave him a tie they invited him to lunch and it was awesome! And when we went to look for him in the morning I was stunned cuz he was in a suit! And he said(in English) "I'm going to church!!" haha it was awesome!
Also in San Gregorio, we found another family that was waiting for us! That was prepared! "well I'm just trying to find God in my life" is what the dad of this family said!
And yeah lots more progressing to Christ!!
Was a fast week!

Cambio #10 Finished...

Well this cambio was a great one! Elder Evans and I broke my record with 210 lessons taught this cambio! We went hard! With a few people in the water! yeah yeah!
The numbers were great!
And for this next cambio I will still be Elder Evans Comp here in San Carlos!! yeah #5 cambios kinda guy haha
Cool Story from the week:
So we've been visiting this San Gregorio place these last couple of weeks and we found a Family of members that lives there that hasn't been to church in a while. And they came on Sunday! And then During Priesthood meeting we were talking about Priesthood (cuz My convert Patricio got the Priesthood) ;) ;)  The dad of the family rose is hand and asked "Who do I need to talk to, to get baptized?" and well that got heads turned! Then the teacher pointed him right to us! And all the members were like ¿You aint baptized? haha and then he later told us that they made the choice to get baptized so they could get married in the temple, (because the wife and kids got baptized about a year and a half ago) the night before, so they came to church! And we haven't even taught them yet! Just met them in the street!! Crazy!!
#Miracles happen.
And we got to chop some wood! And I had gotten like 10 in a row on the first try so I wanted a video!
And so we did it on my camera and I almost went through 2! But my camera died...
Then I got this video haha ​
Have a great week! and "Do Good"TM

Not 1, Not 2, But 3 more!!

Wow! this week was another amazazazingly awesome week!!
It was a great opportunity to be able to watch 3 more souls enter into the waters of Baptism :)
This was an amazing family, Adrian, Ana, and Florencia! 
Was a very interesting too cuz we only found them 2 weeks ago :) haha 
Long story short they were ready to receive this amazing gospel that will now bless their family for the eternities :) 
I love completing families :)  

We had many members come too :) 
Waiting for that Eclipse... But well it was only seen in the States... haha 
  So yep we had some fun ::::) 
 We also had Zone conference this week that was really fun, listening to Prez, and doing Practices, and eating food, and laughing :) and the interview! All went great :)
And also we had Stake Conference and so on Sunday Morning we took a bus with the ward to Chillan! It was cool :) Then after we stayed in Chillan for lunch with a member that likes us from a different ward and it was the biggest lunch I have had yet!! oh I almost couldn't finish it!

Splash, Splash, Splash! Like your taking a Bath!

Well this week sure was a great one!!
We had 3 people come closer to Christ on Saturday! And my comps 1st baptism!!
And we also just ya know call to this one small town called San Gregorio one day by President.
And taught a bunch of Haitians :)
So I'd say the week was pretty neat :) haha
Patricio, Joaquin, and Antonella! 

This is that one family that we found a couple of weeks ago. that now the Dad is the Ward mision leader! It was an awesome expirence with this wild family! Sepulveda Godoy. Joaquin is 11 and Antonella is 8 and it was so great to see thier Dad act so fast to get himself ready to baptized his own kids!
This is Patricio he is 50 and was a super Catholic but was so humble to know how to change and follow our Savior. 
This is San Gregorio. And well on Wednesday we got the assignment to go teach there. And well there were people waiting :) 
Within 10 minutes of being there a lady bought us lunch and found out she was a member with her family :) 
then every single door we knocked, they let us in :) 
And well one story of one of them was during the lesson when I pulled out the pamphlet near the end she told us that she had it and had read it about 2 months ago in her house. But the thing is that Missionaries have never ever been to this little town. And in this moment I was with an assistant and we both think that one of the 3 Nephites was here before us!!! 
Also had a mini cambio with Elder Lecheminat! Was good! 
I hope you all "Do Good"TM like you should! 
See ya!

Keep it Rolling in the Rain!!

Well this week was another great week!
Even though it rained hard every single day this week we had great numbers!
But the cool things from this week would be:
1. So this family that we found a couple of weeks ago that moved from Viña that has been inactive for awhile just by knocking the door next to theirs. That now this Saturday 2 of their kids will be baptized by the Dad. And they have been coming every week since we found them. And now the Dad is going to be called the Ward Mission leader! Yeah!
2. Working with Nicole as a Recent convert is the best! She is now teaching all of her friends! And Now her best friend wants to be baptized very bad! And we've only taught her once! haha! She is the!! If everyone would do what she is doing the whole world would be baptized by now!
Have a great week! and "Do Good"TM

Great Week!!

Week of miracles!
We had a lot of things going on this week starting with the goals! We achieved formula 1! And the experience I'm going to share is one of many but it was the most grading.
Then, in the morning after the prayer to leave, we received a call from the Area Leaders asking about people with date and we arrived at an investigator that we had problems with his mother wanting him to be baptized, and Elder Abad told me to teach L2 again but with ancestors explaining temples and everything. That he is not the only person who will be baptized in this process equal his ancestors. Then this very night we went and when we taught about Baptisms for the Dead, the mom stopped us and said "I've had this question for a long time can you explain more?" !!!!! And then with my Family Tree I showed them more. And at the end of the lesson they gave permission for him to be baptized! With your signature! and that's not all! On Sunday at Church they were organizing a stake activity for Family History and this young man of 12 years, although he is not member he raised his hand to go! God is helping this child!
Then there was another lesson we had with a lady that will be baptized soon, but didn't want to before this lesson... where during the lesson a lot of things happened but to finish I said that I was going to read 2 scriptures and said to her to listen to her thoughts while I was reading, and after I read them I started to explain a little bit of what it meant then I heard The Spirit tell me "Stop. And ask her how see feels." So I did. And then she said "Why?..." (knowing exactly why) Then I looked at her and said "Because I know." Then she explained that while I was reading the scriptues she heard a voice say... "Repent. Now." So then I testified that it was The Holy Ghost speaking to her. And it was pretty easy from that point on :)
and also we got... nah! destroyed all of our goals this week!
And well I left my sd card in the house of a family last night so I don't have pics but I've got a ton for this next week!!
Have a great week!
And as you know "Do Good"TM
