How's it going fam?
This week I feel like we worked hard, but its been really hard to find new people. We've really been trying to talk to everyone in the street and I have never been rejected so many times in my life. One time we counted, I  think about 15 people in a row that wouldn't even stop to talk to us so were learning a lot of patience and just looking for those chosen ones. We are seeing a lot of blessings from it also. Rodrigo, Constanza's brother, that a few weeks ago got really closed and didn't even want to talk to us. He just told us out of nowhere that he wants to get baptized. The ward did a really good job with him, even though he didn't want anything, he still went to church and the members made him feel like he was already a member, and now he's more excited than ever.
On Saturday we had cleaning day all morning and I don't think the house has ever been so clean since the missionaries have been there. It gets pretty bad sometimes, but we've been trying to keep it pretty clean. Afterwards, my companion made us some huge pancakes with manjar and it was amazing. I'll definitely bring some manjar home for you guys its pretty dang good and they put it on everything. Welp thats about it. love you guys and have an awesome week!

Elder Oaks

Hello everyone,
We just had an awesome zone activity. We've been doing zone activities almost every week for the last few months and its been a blast but this one was definitely the best. We went Paint balling again in a really cool place in the hills and then ate some delicious Papa johns. 
We also had an awesome conference from Elder Oaks this week. We woke up super early and took a two hour bus ride to Chillan with the whole entire mission to watch the broadcast from Santiago. I loved his talk! He talked about the importance of the Holy Ghost in the conversion and how a lot of people are converted to the church and not by the Holy Ghost and don't have a testimony of Jesus Christ. It's good to be converted by the Church but without the conversion of the Holy Ghost, they wont stay active. He also talked about a lot more things that I don't have time to share.
Austin Congratulations! I definitely had no idea he was getting married so fast and that really surprised me. Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jaxson!!! I did remember but I forgot to tell him last week. Love everyone!
