Just thought about this--You know how Megamind says hello weird? That’s actually how Chileans say it, and how you are supposed to yell at people’s gates so they come open the door. Weird, huh? But, there ya go.
It has been an interesting week. In the end, a great week for progress--E came to church again this week and accepted to prepare for the 12th of October to be baptized! We are super excited and really going to be doing our best praying for him to search and receive his response. He has real desires to learn, always does his reading, and is progressing very well. We are looking for others just like him, families, to accept the gospel of Christ, as well.
We have also been working with the sister missionaries and with the ward as a whole. The sisters here are great missionaries, making things happen, we are just trying to keep up. We have had some great FHEs and ward activities. I love the members here, we have some very converted consecrated disciples of Christ here in Tome.
We had a minicambio this week with Elder R, he came with both me and Elder R, it was fun. Elder R is the man, so is Elder R, reminisced old times. Elder R is headed home today, which is super sad. The mission is going to be completely different without him here, he is one of the last of that generation. Now it’s our time to shine, meaning me and Elder R, Elder R only got to Chile six weeks before me!
Working hard, having fun. Went on a super pretty long run with Elder Rhodes along the beach all morning, lots of fun. And General Conference this week! I am excited. Hopefully we can watch it in English!
