ALL IS WELL POST. Sept. 18, 2015

So they gave us ten minutes to send a Quick message to tell you all we are alive and all is well. It has been a great experience in the end all the missionaries are fine no problems just cleaning up the damage. No injuries in the Zone as far as missionaries few members in the District had injuries very few deaths in Chile for the magnitude. The Sea left its boundries in a minature tsunami destroyed lots of structure we spent most the day yesterday putting the ocean back in its place in the houses of a few members. Our house is all well. Quite the story to tell. I have most of the action on video. I would do it again if I had the chance. But im glad that no one was seriously injured. We have water and power now in the whole Zone. They might cut the water in the next few days in one of the towns but we will have interchanges next week with those Elders so no worries! Love you all.

The center of the Earthquake was very close to Los Vilos registering a 8.4 Richter.
It was a very long quake we were in the street. It almost threw me to the ground in one point. Talking with other parts in another town you were not able to stay on your feet.

But We are all well.

Much love!

September 14, 2015 letter

What a WEEK wahoo! We are going with the Frasinger power for six more weeks! So on Tuesday night Elder Herrera called us and said that Elder Fraser was going to leave the Area. We were with Mabel and she started to cry, she left and then He called back and said it was a joke that everyone in the Zone was going to stay this change and that two more Elders would come to replace the ones that went home. So, its a good new change we are pretty excited. Sometimes for exercise in the morning we go play soccer 2 vs 2 and I'm getting a little bit better... ha Also of course I feel like I have progressed a lot as a minister of Christ. We have been greatly blessed and I am understanding what it means to Teach with POWER and AUTHORITY.

-Nicolas received the Aaronic Priesthood and is already making plans for the mission. 
-I spoke on Sunday and it was really fun. 
- The Elders that came to the Zone didn't get there in time to catch a bus so we had to save them at 12 midnight they slept in our house with us. ha
-Mabel is seeing so many miracles in her life for her obedience its incredible I couldn't even begin to tell you. 
-Saturday we decided we had to participate in the world service project even though the branch didn't do anything so we called President Díaz and asked if we could do a project we put on the helping hands yellow and went around collecting TONS of garbage. A preacher dude set up his loud speaker and started preaching while we were picking up trash it was a cool experience to let your light shine through your GOOD WORKS. 
-Today we went to the south of town there is no beach just pure rocks ill send pics it was really cool there is an island that's full of sea lions.

Really I have learned so much in my life and it is a blessing to both learn A LOT more and apply what I have learned to help other people, 

Love Elder Biesinger

PS this week we need to find investigators a FAMILY preferably if you could just remember that in your prayers so that we can make the most of our time here teaching the chosen people. Remember the Scripture Moroni 7:26 if we ask and its good we can receive.

Thank you for all the love and support.

September 7th Letter

Well what a week!
Nicolas was baptised on Saturday and it was such a great day, the kid was saying the whole time how it was the best day of his life. He was waiting to be baptised for a little more than a year. He just needed a little more confidence in asking, a little more time, and now he is going to be a golden missionary in a few years. Such a blessing to be here when he was able to be baptised. His girlfriend is how he got to know the church a little better. His future father in law baptised him and it was a cool thing.

Mabel and Nicolas were both confirmed on Sunday, and then after they both shared their testimonies as well as another recent convert Blanca. The three are basically the only converts here and they all gave super power testimonies. It was a cool experience.

So this week will be changes. My Comp only has six weeks left in the mish so its possible he leaves the area hopefully not, but we will see.

So with today apparently being Labor day I feel my thoughts are appropriate for this week. Three scriptures. the First is Moroni 9:6 I love this verse in Spanish its a little bit stronger, but in English its good too.

And now, my beloved son, notwithstanding their hardness, let us labor diligently; for if we should  cease to labor, we should be brought under condemnation; for we have a labor to perform whilst in   this tabernacle of clay,that we may conquer the enemy of all righteousness, and rest our souls in the kingdom of God.

 And the other that I want to share is 3 Nephi 20: 40-43

40 And then shall they say: How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings unto them, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings unto them of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion: Thy God reigneth!
 41 And then shall a cry go forth: Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch not that which is unclean; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord.

 42 For ye shall not go out with haste nor go by flight; for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel shall be your rearward.

 43 Behold, my servant shall deal prudently; he shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.

Lets get it done. It doesn't have to be with haste but its gotta be done I know that we are getting ever closer. The thing that is really important in this life is what Elder Viñas of the 70 taught us this week he told us "Peace unto you." He then told us that what really matters is that we can see an increase in the strength of Zion that we are preparing the Vinyard for the second coming . We must labor.


Love you guys Elder Biesinger
