February 29, 2016 Leap Day

Buenas Hey everyone!

So this week was really Crazy!
Monday flew by

Tuesday we had A LOT to do. Service then lunch then abunch of lessons.

Wednesday was Changes Elder McElhaney left and went to another sector. It was kinda sad we got to be good Friends. But I got another comp now his name is Elder Hansen from Tooele! SO many Utah comps! ha He has 10 months in the mission and he is a great missionary he is really excited and is should be a good Change. Normally changes are 6 weeks but this one will be 8 due to the churches world wide change in the time that missionaries are in the MTC. So we are excited to have a bunch of time to work! Wednesday morning we also went on a run out in the Chilean wilderness to start out the day. I'll send Pics.

Thursday flew by with weekly planning and starting off the Change. Then we had a bunch of lessons. This week we finished off all the Lessons with Mateo and he passed his Baptismal interview. But now we are waiting a bit to finish getting the Dad ready so that the whole family is ready and Active so he can baptize his son. Its going well.

Friday we had Council with President. It was a great time its always enjoyable. President has so much knowledge of the BOM and the Scriptures. I guess thats Expected when your proffession is teaching the Gospel.

Saturday we had a good day as well part of the day we helped out with the Baptism of 8 Year old Antonia she is the Daughter of a family that we have recently been working with that is coming back to church! It was really cool. So cool to see the family feel the Spirit they even invited their neighbor so we will see if that is a lead.
We also gave a Blessing to a recently returned Missionary that severed in Argentina he was in the mission where Elder Fraser lives and Actually was in their Branch. While I was with Elder Fraser. He was hit by a car and was pretty bad in the Hospital its such a small world. But I know he will get out of there just fine it was a strong moment. Just after the head nurse came over and started to get upset because it was us two and the mom she only wanted two people in there at a time but when we left we went and specifically apologized and she changed completely.

On Sunday it was a good day one of the highlights we went to a Less active Sisters house her son is in the mission we got there and her brother who is Deaf and Mute was there with his future wife who is also Deaf and Mute. My comp knew a tiny bit of Sign that he had learned in an interchange where they taught other people deaf and mute. We figured out how to teach them with the Help of the Sister and another member who is their Adopted Brother via skype we got there just in time and they were already connected with him. They are going to read because the man knows how to read then he will translate it to her. They are going to waite for their baby to be born and then they want to be married and Baptised it was a really cool moment My comp has a lot of energy and just lit up in that lesson it was cool i learned quite a bit of Signing. Gift of Tounges not just for the mouth.

Love you Guys I hope yall have a great week!

February 22, 2016

Hey everyone! Well this week we are really really short on time my bad we went to eat lunch with a family that lives in our area and it went a little long and then the Internet shops in our area were all closed so we had to run down to the Centro.

This week was a fun week yesterday when we got home From Church there was a big fire in the middle of a ton of houses burning the hill side. The Air fighters were bombing it with water. By the time we got over there it was all out. They got it just in time. It burnt right up to the back yards of the houses and scorched a few fences.

In an interchange with Elder Gould (from Spanish Fork, Maple Mountain High school He was in Jake's Orchestra class) we were in this like way off in the boonies part of town up on top of this hill working and all the Flaites always get together in the buss stops and drink and smoke they stated yelling saying they needed a "consult" its a common word in Spanish. We went over and there were two women in there 60s from Switzerland that didn't speak any Spanish looking for someone to give them directions... They were really Lost.... Good thing the only two gringos with in five miles showed up just in time (the other greengos being other missionaries. hahaha) Luckily we knew how to send them where they wanted to go. It was  like a good Hour and a half away.. ha

In English class we taught head shoulders knees and toes.. hahahaha way funny.

We had to go to the Sisters pensions this week to install a full alarm systems with motion detectors on the doors and in the house... yeah with a siren and control panel.... It had its learning curve but we figured it out. Also how to turn the siren off... Poor neighbors...

We went to do some service and the Hermano hooked me up to this huge machine that is supposed to cut the weeds down I felt like Robbo Cop. the Machine didn't work the blade was really dull and he didn't wanna have us sharpen it. (No arguing with a Chilean) so we grabbed the Hoes and went to work we got that ditch sparking in a manner of minutes. We wake up a half hour early and get a sweat going in the mornings. I'm still out of shape but its getting there.

We have English class at 8 on Tuesdays at 7:55 were finishing a lesson about 55 minutes away walking. (It was really important.) As we left we were praying for  a taxi to pass by with is not even likely nor really possible in that part of the sector you have to walk about ten minutes to find one. We walked one block and caught one perfectly what a blessing. Well guys I love you all I hope you have a great week. We are working a lot with Jimena she has a lot of Opposition from her Brothers and sisters but knows what she has to do. Also Mateo is coming along great we shall see the goal completed soon his mom called us the other day and thanked us because he is really excited and is studying and learning a ton all on his own. its such a blessing.

Love you
