Why a mission?

The gospel is the most beautiful thing in the world. I know it's all true, and this knowledge has given me all the wonderful things of this life. I can't wait to share this knowledge with others.

March 11th Update

Well this week went super fast! 

Fall is coming here in Chile. It's getting a little chilly. Bah ha ha ha. Thank goodness that Constitución is a bit on the relaxed side when it comes to weather. It gets super windy sometimes, though. Not exactly conducive for us skirt-wearing folk. We get by :) 

Clara and Luis and still super fantastic! They are super funny. Luis is a Menos Active, and we found out yesterday that he and is sister were orphans when he was like 15. That's when they got baptized, and it helped them grow up with good principles. And now Clara, his girlfriend, is hooked on reading the Book of Mormon. She's so blunt and honest, and she's hungrier and hungrier to understand more of the gospel. They've got a little 10 year old named Ignacia that is wanting to get baptized, too. They have got to get married first, and then they're planning on the 6 of April to get baptized. They sure are wonderful!

Something a little funny about life is that there's a lot of time when we run around asking everybody else for answers. Maybe our friends, or family, or leaders. But you know what? We've really just got to get on our needs and have the faith that we can recieve answers from prayers. That Heavenly Father really knows, He really cares, and He really wants to teach us something. There are some times when you just have to say, "Well! It looks like I still haven't learned what you wanted me to learn...because this still is really hard." But, it'll always get better. But! The mission rocks. Life is great. Still learning loads here in good ol' Chi-Le. 

Love you folks!
