Santiago, Chile

Santiago, Chile

Yeah, so here’s what happened this week:

I got to visit my family last Saturday! It was such great experience. we ate charquican and I got to share a little bit about the gospel with everyone. And what’s great, they accepted the invitation to listen to the missionary discussions!!! God knows exactly where to put us. It’s amazing how He sent me here, out of all the other missions that he could have sent me to. I have a lot of hope for my family. I invited them to baptism, and almost all said that if they felt the need, they would do it! The only one I didn’t meet was my cousin Santiago. I’ve heard he likes to play basketball (Golden State Warriors fan at that!) and we´re gonna invite him to play with us and the assistants on a pday.

Jocelyn got baptized!! Woooo! There was a lot of problems with the baptismal font so at the end we had to fill it with cold water from the fire hose haha! President Barreiros attended the baptism, and it was a really special experience. 

Other cool things... Well we went with the whole Barreiros family to do their visa process. We spent a lot of time in the government buildings talking with haitians (there are a lot in Chile) and learning Criolle. It was a blast! We found out that James, Presidents son, is going to UVU in the fall, so we{ll be seeing each other a lot! Then president took us to a really nice restaurant and payed lunch for us. Ohhhhhhh, it was sooooooooooooo goood!!!! President and Sister Barreiros really are amazing human beings.

We have been seeing the windows of heaven just opening up and pouring down a waterfall of blessings on me and elder martins. He finishes his mission in 2 weeks, but that doesn’t stop him. We´ve been working harder than we ever have before. One of our missionary friends told us something before he left that really impacted  us:

"You´ve gotta work until the very end, cause that´s when the miracles start to happen" 

And we are seeing it. We have an amazing family of 5, the Sanchez family, who are going to attend church tomorrow. The daughter has a baptismal date for the 5 de marzo, and we are sure that the rest of the family will be baptized with her.

Thanks for all your support. Keep working it the work of the Lord. Be obedient with Exactness, read the scriptures (especially the Book of Mormon) and everything will go well.

Love you"
