March 23
Hey family,
Today there were changes in the mission, but me and my companion are staying together another six weeks so I'm pretty exited about that. Elder Calizaya is still sick. Almost every day after lunch walking back to the house he throws up about 5 times, all of his lunch, before we get back to the house. He stayed in the house of a member 4 times this week and I've just been leaving with members or sometimes I just get stuck in the house bored out of my mind. We're going to the doctor again today so hopefully they actually do something this time.
I'm not sure if I told you last week but we are working with an awesome family that we found about a week ago. Grandma and Grandpa Clark wrote me a letter saying that they were praying that we could find a golden investigator for my birthday and I think we found them the very next day, so thank you for your prayers! The mom Solange has been inactive for more that 20 years but she's super awesome. Her daughter Constanza that's 13 and her son Rodrigo that's 17 are both preparing to be baptized and their super excited. They've been to church twice and there is nothing stopping them from getting baptized so please pray for the them. They also cant be baptized until the mom is reactivated so it will be in a few more weeks. That's about it, hope you have an awesome week!

Hey family,
We had another good week here in Chiguayante except that my companion is still sick. Today we finally found out what is wrong with him. He did the endoscopia and they found out that he has more that one sickness. The valve or whatever its called that closses in you stomach so that food doesn't come back out your throat is lazy and doesn't work very good so that's why he's been throwing up. Inside his stomach is also really beat up and injured on the inside and also some bacteria infection that I don't know what its called. They gave him some medicine so hopefully he gets better.
We are still working with Solang and her kids Constanza and Rogrido. I don't think they could  be doing any better. They are one hundred percent involved in the activities and Rodrigo goes to seminary at 6 in the morning every day before school. Please keep them in your prayers!
My soccer skills are improving. Were playing once a week at the church and a few times a month on a huge field down in Concepcion and I'm actually starting to like the sport a lot even though I'm pretty out of shape.That's about it this week. Love you guys!

We just got back from playing some paintball in the wilderness and I'm super tired but it was super fun. We even had Papa Johns after so it was a pretty good zone activity. Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I actually forgot it was my birthday until I was writing down the date in my morning studies but we had a good day. Elder Siaosi and Elder Call bought me a huge delicious cake at night. It had to have weighed a good ten pounds and we ate the whole thing within that night and the next moring, and we were not feeling good. My companion was also sick that whole day so I just worked by myself with members. In that picture I sent you, I worked with the dad of that family and he just brought me to his house and had so much food ready for me. It was hard to get out of that one with him being my companion, but they are a super nice family. 
My companion has been pretty sick and only worked about 4 days. Other than that we had a good week. Eli got confirmed and is doing super good. We also found an awesome family this week. The mom, Solange has been inactive for about 20 years and now has a family of five. We are working with her daughter Costanza and her son Rodrigo, that I could see getting baptized in a few weeks, so please pray for them. 
I got the package, thanks for the candy! Tell Jake good luck and to write me! Have an awesome week! les Quiero!

Hey everyone! We had a good week this week and my companion is doing a lot better. He's eating and he hasn't thrown up in about a week, so I think he's good to go. Eli is still doing really good. She has now been to church 4 times and she loves it. Her dad is still the only thing stopping her from doing it.  She's going to fast with us on Tuesday so that everything turns out good and we also have an appointment to talk with her dad this week. We are praying that she can get baptized this sunday. We also had two new investigators in church that are preparing to get baptized name Michael and Tamara. They are a young married couple that are really awesome. I think they're about 23 years old and that was their first time in church. Please pray for them! Love you guys!

Hello everyone,
We had a great week and we also saw some miracles. Like I told you last week, our investigator Eli was having some family problems that were stopping her from getting baptized. She really wanted to be baptized and she didn't know what to do so we decided to fast together with her. She didn't like the idea at all at first but she decided to do it anyways and she did a whole 24 hour fast. The very next day, she gave us a surprise call and said that she had received an answer and that she was getting baptized on Sunday! It was definitely a testimony builder on the power of  prayer and fasting. The baptism went great and the font did not overflow!
This morning we went and played some football on the beach. I hadn't been to the beach in a long time and i don't think i had played a game of football my whole mission so we definitely had a good time. 
Thanks for the birthday wishes! I cant believe I'm 20! I still feel like a child. I'll try and do something more fun this year because last year I didn't really do anything. Love you guys and have an awesome week!
