Hey! So it snowed 2 days ago! and its nice and freezing. Im loving my snow coat its super confy. This week was a good week, some interesting things happened but we are excited for the work.

but thanks for all the letters sounds like all is going well. Hope all is well with Bishop tell him im praying for him. Thats crazy how many missionaries we have in our ward thats so awesome, were is Renzo going?
Oh if LANDON reads this tell him I saw Ellie Paterson in one of the videos of conference walking in temple square haha super funny seeing someone, also that one guy that sang really well in our first ward in byuidaho singing in the choir for a devotional CSI at byuidaho we watched.

haha and mom that song was pretty great for subaru, "sleepin all day and skypin all night, eat a couple sushi and were feeling alright..." haha good times tell kyler I said hi I havent had a chance to right letters weve been really busy.

For the work some sweet things have happened, one of our investigadores jocelyn we finally we are able to teach her again after a month because her baby was super sick, but we got to teach her, what was hard was her kids were upset because they wanted to go to a fair or something in centro but it was super hard to teach her as well when her baby keeps reaching under her shirt because she is hungry, BUT! super cool experience happened usually all chaos happens when we tell the first vision but this time as I began to tell it everyone became quiet and was listening, and the spirit was strong, but immediately when I ended they began again ha but at least we could have the spirit touch her, teaching with crazy kids is really hard, but we invited her to the family night that night and she went!!! with her kids, we had a member pick her up and it was a family night of service held by the relief society, they gave massages, painted nails, and did hair, (ha all of which we cant do BUT she loved it) and being a mom where her spouse is never there was good for her and got her confidence and excitement up of the church, Wasnt very spiritual but still good to get to know the members.

Its the anniversary of Puerto Natales right now so they are doing sooo many activities this month its crazy, and all are usually in our sector, theyve had a parade, a mini fair, a carnival, and a ton of concerts, its tought to find people when that happens cause everyone is at the activities.
One thing interesting that happened this week was it was later in the night and we had 30 min til we need to go to the house finishing a lesson and I felt like we should pass by to see how some member were doing they were having a bbq in front selling something similar to shish kabobs. But it then became an environment really dark, its interesting how as a missionary you can tell something isnt right or the spirit isnt somewhere. And her  grown sons began to talk to us, they were really drunk and were not saying stuff very nice. The members were reallly embarrassed. Then they began to fight eachother and they had to seperate them, we didnt stay long due to that but told them not to worry or feel embarrassed, they looked really sad, luckily we had time to pass by yesterday and share a scripture and make them a little more cheerful. Just a interesting story, reminded me of my last sector there was a lot of drunks there it was something on the daily basis ha.

Grandma thanks for the letter! Im always praying for you, thanks for your thoughts! Also Dalan as well, Those were some awesome pointers.
One thing I was thinking about that is interesting for the mission and learning and growing in journal is siempre God is giving is revelation when we are doing our part and we need to be ready to recieve it, I cant tell you how many times I have had trouble explaining a gospel principle and then at the randomest time I recieve the answer by a scripture or something someone says or even in the middle of the night. Their is something really special with the relation of prayer, scripture study and meditation (pondering), its the perfect recipe to grow and recieve revelation.

I cant really think of anything more to say, Im glad I write in my journal every day cause I forgot things really fast haha,
my boots are super awesome but Im scared I bought them to big cause my heal is dying (is that something that i just need to wear in?) hopefully that goes away.

Love you all,

chow chow Que les vaya muy BIEN!!!
Se que La Iglesia y el evangelio es la verdad y Es la fuente de nuestra Felicidad. Nos Vemos Hasta El Lunes!
