Hey Happy Father´s Day!! Hope that you had a great father´s day yesterday! Looks like you guys had a good time!
This week was actually a pretty good week! Busy of just companion exchanges again! We have been working a lot more closer with the missionaries in our zone to be able to help them out a little bit more and help them work as well! Our zone is actually really awesome and mostly all the missionaries work really well! So there isn´t a ton of problems but we still have been working a lot with them to be able to raise their expectives and faith. In the Zone right now we have a total of 13 baptisms and this weekend coming up we should be having 7 baptisms in the zone! So we should get to 20 baptisms this month! In the mission right now we have 94 baptisms with 64 baptisms for this weekend! So if everything goes well this weekend then we should reach 157 which should break the records here in Chile for the most baptisms in one month!!! So pray that everything goes well this weekend! We´ll be putting all our trust and faith in the Lord this week in his vineyard! We should also be having 2 baptisms this weekend as well! Ana and Gian are finally getting baptized! It´s Juan Ibacache´s wife and kid that finally went to church this Sunday and are going to get baptized!
But yeah this week I had companion exchanges with Elder Barney on Tuesday. Elder Barney is a really good missionary. Definitely think that he will be a zone leader pretty soon because there are 6 zone leaders going home this transfer so I think that he will have a good chance of being a zone leader be we´ll see where the Lord calls him. But definitely a good day with him on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday I had another exchange with Elder Wheelwright again. He is also a really good missionary! Had a good day with him as well but actually a crazy day as well. So first thing that happened that day is that a dog bit my leg....😬 Ripped my pant open and everything... Didn´t really do any damage or anything to my leg but did rip my pant open... I was able to fix my pants a little bit but I think that the sister that washes our clothes will be able to fix it for me lol.. But don´t worry everything good. Also that same day in the night we had to go down to a part of our sector that is pretty dangerous at night. Usually it´s pretty chill but it´s dangerous because it´s dark and there wasn´t like anyone else around. So we were going down and being that we are on top of a mountain and it´s winter time we normally get some pretty wicked fog and sometimes can see a lot. And just when we got to this part of the sector the fog hit really hard and we passed by a dude that asked us what time it was then started to follow us in the dark and fog. So right when we got to the corner of the street we turned the corner and just started to run.... Well nothing happened but it was a little sketch... But yeah that was my day with Elder Wheelwright. We were actually talking a little bit about snowboarding and stuff like that because he skied a ton and was just about to get sponsored before the mission but then he left out on the mish. Definitely excited to get home right in time for the snowboarding season! Then on Thursday I had a exchange with Elder Dominguez in his sector. This is his first transfer in the mission and the first time in his sector alone having to direct it. Was an interesting day but it was good as well! Welp other than that this week just working as normal and finding new people to teach and baptize!
Sounds like the job hunt is still going strong! Hopefully everything will work out!
Looks like I´m going to have 2 pairs of shoes.... Whoops. Today we were walking around outside of Sofri which sells like a ton of stuff from outside like stuff from the States as well and I found a really nice pair of running shoes in my size for like 40 bucks! They were super cheap because like no one buys that size of shoe here in Chile so they dropped the price of the shoes a ton and they only had a couple pairs of shoes but they were super cheap and I couldn´t hold myself from buying them... So yeah I bought them lol. But I can´t believe that I´m already going to be 20 in a couple months! Time just flies by!
Other than that this should be another busy week! A lot of stuff like normal that we have to do this week! Love ya guys a ton! Have a great week!
