Exciting news from home

first of i’m sorry to hear the news of grandma harris' passing. i know that it was her time but it is still sad to hear.  i know that she is in a better place now.
Grandma Harris is surrounded by some of her family Thanksgiving 2013

on a happy note, i’m happy to hear about renee and dave. i was praying that it would happen soon and i’m glad that it did happen. i’m sad that i wont be there to see the wedding, but its all good. i’m sure that you guys can survive without me there. 

Renee and Dave got engaged on the first of April! And that is no April Fool's joke. 
They will get married sometime this summer.

this week was pretty slow. not a whole lot happened. conference was the biggest deal so i guess i’ll talk about that. 

so normally in south america all of the stakes provide a room for all of the north american missionaries so that they can listen to conference in english. well, our stake presidency decided that they weren’t going to provide that room. there are 2 zone of missionaries and all of the english speakers were going nuts. we had to watch the first session in spanish and even though i could understand it all it just wasn’t the same. the zone leaders called our mission president and explained the situation. he gave us permission to go to the other stake center in rancagua to watch it in english. so all the english speaking missionaries walked out 15 min before the 2nd session and we all hopped in busses and taxis to get to the other stake center. when we got there we ended up cramming into a small room to watch it. i don’t know how we did it cause we were about 40 missionaries. i wish i got a pic, but i forgot my camera. 

the engish room was crazzzzzyyyyy.  just imagine 40 missionaries together watching conference. it was sooo funny to watch everyone interact with each other. the funniest thing was one of the sisters yelling at all the elders cause she said that none of us put on deodorant that day cause the room smelled nasty. she was being serious too. so that night we bought spray that you use in the bathroom and gave it to her the next day so that she could use it at her pleasure.

several of our investigators  came to listen to general conference. they all really liked it and  our long time investigators says that he now knows that pres monson is a prophet of God so that’s good. they  only came to one session each, but i’ m glad that at least all of them heard something. and with our one investigator we are going to have to push his date back to the 17th because we weren’t able to teach him as many times as we needed to this week. his health is kind of bad so it is hard to find him sometimes. we were able to give him a good blessing to help with his health and i think that really helped him. 

other than that, nothing too big happened this week. we are still working trying to find new people. the whole mission is having trouble finding people and the zone leaders said that it is something that president is really worried about. we are going to have to work extra hard this week. 

i love you all and the church is true.
