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.

September 2nd Update

Hey everybody!

There is such a thing as an emergency cambio. When even though it's not time to change everybody around where they´re serving and who with, it happens anyway. Why yes, that happened to my sector.

The assistants called me last night to tell me that tomorrow I'll be going to the airport to pick up my new comp. I'll be training. Woohoo!!! Hna Martinez is going to Tomé where the beautiful beach is, and she's going to be in a trio with 2 of the coolest missionaries that there are, so that's not too bad. They told me that my companion is named  Hna Romney, and she played for BYU basketball. Oh my heck. I am so excited. I am sure she is such a rock star.  

Mariana is still incredible. We are pals. She is progressing wonderfully to her baptism. We also had the biggest coolest miracle of all: ALAN IS GETTING BAPTIZED.

Alan is the son of Carmen, he's 19 years old. Carmen and 3 of her kids got baptized about two months ago. When we first started teaching them, Alan was the super skeptic. He didn't really feel like there was a God. But, about 2 weeks ago we were having an FHE with them as a family with some other members, and I don't know who asked who but before I know I knew it our 2nd counselor in the bishopric had gone with Alan to give him a Priesthood blessing of health. And his problem disappeared instantly. And then, out of nowhere, HE came to US asking to be baptized. He told us "Before I felt like you were just here selling the gospel. But now I know that it's true." WHAT AN ALL STAR. So, all is well here in Los Copihues.

Change is a part of life, and it follows you wherever you go. You might as well learn to love it. Like our wonderful prophet says,

"The future is as bright as your faith."

True. Story. 

I love you all! I hope you enjoy every moment you've got. Life's too short to do anything else. Take care.
