San Carlos!

Well this was a great week!
On Tuesday going from Pradera to San Carlos! Saying Bye to lots of people and Elder Webster and Hello to Elder Souza. New bigger house! New investigators. New town. New ward. New everything.
But when we got here we had a whole group of Gators of 1 who got confirmed yesterday! But then we found 6 this week! So we are good now!
I live in a house with Elder Calle from Peru who finishes this cambio, elder Howell from utah who finishes in 2 more cambios, and Elder Souza from Brasil who finishes next cambio! haha I feel so young!
Hopefully After this cambio I will learn a little Portugese!
But was a great week of work!

March Madness!!! It has begun!

Man this was a good last week! we did a lot of stuff!
Like last week of the cambio, 2 birthdays, a baptism trip, Conference with a General Authority= Elder Texiera President of Area 70 for South America!!
We had a great cambio together!
Oh yeah we had some fun on my birthday!! Ice cream Potatoes! 
And they bought me a pie! 
And I had to do a March Madness Bracket! 
Then Elder Webster had an investigator that wanted him to be the baptizer. So we had a fun trip going to his last sector in San Carlos! We woke up at 5 in the morning and went on really nice buses! Did everything, walked around for a little. It was a really nice city. Kinda reminded me of something like Twin Falls :) 
Then the Conference was soooo good! Elder Texiera speaks 5 languages! And had a lot of cool stories and a lot of things that as a mission we need to work on, cuz apparently we aren't doing so hot compared to other missions. But I'm pretty sure he was looking at the statistics from last year. Cuz we have improved a lot cuz of Prezidente Catala. So now we just have to keep it going! 
And well after 5 cambios and like 8 months in Chiguayante in La Pradera. With a lot done and a perfect way to start a mission, I will be leaving my first sector to go to..... SAN CARLOS B! The old sector of elder Webster! 
And my comp will be Elder Souza from Brazil! And I'm ready to go at it!

Wow! It was a great week!
We had some great lessons, found some new people to teach, had some fun, more insanity, went to the GYM!, reorganized the house a little bit to make it more spacious, and we had ¡¡2 BAPTISMS and 3 CONFIRMATIONS!! yeah yeah!!
This was a great opportunity to teach these guys!
It all started out with a member just baring her testimony on the bus. When at this time Cinthia (the mom) was looking for something better in life. To start over. To be born again...
and then couple things lead to another and this member gave us her address. And we went. We taught. We testified. And now she has this second chance in life to help her family and start over clean again. And her son Nicolas has 8 years so yep :) It was so cool.
Package that got sent to the wrong side of the world... Sorry Elder Purvis haha 
And other than that not much more just one more week in the cambio, and one more week being 18! Wow! Now that's crazy!! 
Have a good week Yáll!
