Peter Frampton, Waffles and "The 4th Missionary"

Hey fam, how's everything going? I miss you guys, but I'm doing really well out here in Chile. Mission life is the best!!! I baptized Bruno last week, and it was so freakin' awesome. This week we will baptize Maria and then the week after that we are baptizing Antonio and Felipe.

I can't believe I've been out for two months now. It seriously feels like I just left. I honestly can't explain how awesome it has been so far. This week we found eight new investigators, but I also have like nine goose eggs on my head. lol Seriously though, I have huge bumps on my head cause I can't tell you how many times I have slammed my head on the door frames and just random things because everyone is so short here. It's crazy. Literally every time I walk into someone's house, they say, "Wow that gringo is tall." I've yet to find someone taller then me in this country, but I seriously love this place. It feels like I've lived here my whole life pretty much! Oh ya, and here I am not known as Elder Frampton, they just like to call me Peter. ha ha like Peter Frampton. I guess everyone knows Peter Frampton here and so every time someone sees my name tag they say, "Como Peter Frampton?" lol So ya, now I'm just Peter! hahaha 

This week we met thee coolest kids in the whole world!!! Their names are Atonio and Felipe and they are 11 and 9 and they are honestly like my little brothers, that's how much I love them. I can barely understand them, but we just laugh and we have this legendary handshake.  They are gonna get baptized in November. I'm soooo excited!!!! So this one time we were playing this board game with them and they were beating me and I started getting a little competitive lol.. 4 peat, right? lol jk . . . but anyway, they beat me and my companion just started yelling random things in English. Just the funniest stuff, and they couldn't understand. It was so classic and they were so cute.
For some reason the only thing I could think of to say was waffles, so now my go to is "waffles." 

This week was great! I'm loving everything about the mission. I'm ready for another awesome week. BRING IT ON! Also my spiritual thought this week is a talk called "The 4th Missionary" If you have the chance, read it! It will change you! At least it did me! 

Love you all!

This week was soooo sick! What a swaggy week! I had a lot happen, but I don't know where to start. Let's see, oh I had a baptism this week. I guess that's a good place to start. Ya, it was so cool. I baptized a kid named Bruno. Such an amazing kid and it was a really spiritual experience. I can't believe I got my first baptism. We also have a date to baptize Bruno's sister, Maria next Sunday, so I'm really excited for that too. 

Oh, and kinda funny story. You know how my hair grows really fast and I have to get haircuts a lot and so mine was really long and everyone kept asking if I was from Peru or Argentina. They don't think I'm from the states. So I went to get a haircut at this Columbian Barbar shop and the guy kept playing with my hair the whole time he was cutting it and it was so creepy. I couldn't understand anything he said so I just kept saying "si." So then finally after I said "si" he took me to this massage table and was going to start massaging me. LOL So creepy. 

I'm in this place called Parte Alta and it just full of hills and so all day long I'm just walking up and down these hills. My calves are absolutely huge now. It's so sweet! Oh and there is this massive cross out side my window. Not kidding, it's like the Twin Towers or something. 

The people here in Chile are so tight and they always feed us and everything, but they only have soda. I haven't had soda in five years and I've been trying to keep my streak up, but this week I broke down and started drinking it again . . . So ya, I drink soda now . . .

I had to give a surprise talk in church yesterday. I was like, are you serous? I don't even speak Spanish, bishop! Whatever, I just went up there and killed it. 

It was a great week. My spiritual thought is to make the most of the time you have with family and friends and school and missions. Whatever it is have fun with it and enjoy it! Be grateful for it. In 1 Thessalonians 5:16 it says "Rejoice always." And in 5:18 it says "Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God's in Christ Jesus for you."

Hey family, how are you guys doing? It was so good to hear all of your voices last week. You all sound so good. Gosh I miss you guys, but and the same time I've never felt so close to you guys! All week the song "Cats in the Cradle" has been playing in my head. I don't know why, but it just makes me so grateful for the family and the dad that I have. You guys are the best. Thanks for all the support!


I literally can't describe how my week was, but I'm gonna try my best. I am finally here. Wow . . . I'm actually here in Chile. I got into Chile and I guess there was some super famous soccer player on our airplane and so when we landed there were tons of cameras everywhere, and at first I thought "How did they know about the Lone Peak National Championship?" lol. 

We then got on a bus and went toured around Vina and it is absolutely beautiful!! Man, I love it! It's seriously so pretty. And then out of no where, President just drops us off in the middle of the city and tells us to find our way back to the mission home. lol 

Okay, tight. I don't know any Spanish . . . but I figured it out. lol I like the president and his family a lot. Then we found out our companions and what area we are serving in. It turns out I am serving in the north which is six hours away from Vina, so I got on a bus in the middle of the night and traveled to a place called Coquimbo. I arrived at like three in the morning and got up the next day and got to work.

My companion is way cool, I like him a lot and he helps me a lot! His name is Elder Buker. I call him Elder Puker. lololol classic! 

But I honestly don't understand anything anyone is saying here. Their Spanish is so bad and the say po at the end of every word so I just sit there and smile really big and say "si" and then smile some more. It's awesome, but, ya I just try to have fun with it and not get frustrated! 

But dang the people here are honestly so freakin' amazing. Some of the most down to earth people. Their houses are really humble and poor, but they are so happy and I have never eaten more food in my life! I WILL BE FAT by the end of my mission! lol 

But I love my mission. It's so smooth. Dogs are everywhere! Probably more dogs than people. I just preach to the dogs cause they actually understand me and listen. lol I might take one home if it's okay with you mom. ha ha

I love it.  Gotta keep working and having fun and doing my thing!

I really miss the family but I want other families to have the love like my family and that's why I'm here. All these families remind me of you guys. I love you guys. 

Have an amazing week!!

Here a few pictures from the last week in the MTC

Monday, October 6, 2014


Hey mom and dad, thanks for all the support and love. 

My week was another great week! I can't believe that it was my last week at the MTC. It seriously feels like I'm leaving my family again. It's crazy! I met so many amazing people and had some amazing experiences in these last six weeks. How has it only been six weeks?  My life has been changed already. I can't imagine what Chile has in store for me. I honestly cant wait!

This week I met the sickest Latino. It was so weird, like we instantly became best friends and we only knew each other for one week and and we could hardly talk to each other because I can't speak Spanish yet. I told him that after the mission we will have a reunion here in mexico and we will talk about everything. He told me that I need to work on my Spanish because in Chile they talk super fast and really broken. He also said to watch out for the Chilean girls.  lol

This week I got in my  last couple of games of cage soccer and dunk ball, which was way sad. We also had a chess tournament with our district, which was fun, and we had our final "socks and garments journal writing session." You can guess what that is all about.  Then for the last night here we had a huge slumber party in my house with all the districts. Everyone brought over their mattresses and had a slumber. It was so tight!!!! such a fun night!! 

Highlight of the week was for sure General Conference. This was probably the first time I watched all the sessions and took notes and stuff and WOW! seriously, I loved every second of it. It was a perfect way to end the week! 

I am a little scared to go to Chile today because I don't know much Spanish and I'm getting a new companion and everything. This is the real deal I guess. Real investigators and everything. That's kinda scary, but I know I'll be fine with the Lord on my side! i can't wait to get to my new home! 


I did see Grant singing at the Priesthood session of conference, and I got super pumped! I miss all my friends and stuff, but dang, I miss singing and dancing and watching The Office with my bros more than anything. I think about Wyatt and Garrett more than anyone. I miss them every day. 

I love you guys and I'll tell you all about Chile when i get there
