I had another great week here in Chile. It was a freakin' great one and I was able to witness a lot of little miracles. It was AWESOME! This week we were able to confirm Bruno and there is a great story behind it. We also set another baptism date with a 15-year old girl named Maria, so we were super pumped about that! If everything goes right this week we should have four baptisms with Felipe, Antonio, Maria, and Maria Pas, the sister of Bruno! It's going to be busy week but I'm so grateful and excited!
Okay, to start off my week I painted a fence. Ya, I painted this lady's fence blue for her. We were just walking in the street and I saw this lady and started talking to her. I asked her if we could do anything for her and she said we could help her paint her fence, so we spent most of the day painting, which was actually super fun. I guess you can call me Elder Tom Sawyer.
That same day I saved a dog's life. I'm dead serious, I saved this dog's life. So we were going to this house and all the sudden I hear this dog whining and so we go to check it and there is this dog who has it's head stuck it this fence. It was bad. I don't know how it got in there but it wasn't gonna come out and we had no idea how long he had been there. We tried everything to get him of there, but he was so stuck. So finally we said a prayer, and no joke, his head just slipped out. It was the craziest thing!
Halloween is like the one day missionaries can actually fit in, so that was nice! I actually made a costume because I wanted to be something. I made myself in to a human Book of Mormon. It was great. I have pictures! Such a classic!
Funny story for the week: This is too funny. So there is this guy that is always on this street that we pass by everyday and every time he sees us he says these bad words in English that start with an F. Not good, right? I was getting of tired of it, so this week I decided to talk to him. I was like 'hey do you know what that word means?" and he said "ya." So I was like "that word isn't even that bad, there are words that are way worse. He was like, "tell me" and I said "Sorry man I can't cause I'm a missionary, and he was like "please," so i was like "fine, but I'm only gonna say it once so you better write it down." He agreed so I said, "baptize me" ha ha ha So now every time we pass him he says "baptize me!"
My spiritual thought for the week: These first two months of my mission have honestly changed me. If my mission ended right now it would have an effect on me for the rest of my life! I have changed so much. This is kind of a shout out to my mom because she was right, reading is awesome. I don't like saying it, but reading she freaking great! I really enjoy reading now and if you would have asked me that two months ago I would have said, no way! I hated it so much that my mom used to ground me until I would read a book. But now I honestly love it and I love studying!
And another thing that I like is to clean. Not kidding. So weird. Mom, guess what else? I make my bed every morning now! ha ha I am a huge nerd. But the mission is awesome. This gospel is true and it can help you with anything. Honestly, any problem or addiction or whatever, this gospel of Jesus Christ can change you!
I love the mission. It is awesome. I can't wait to learn Spanish.
