Dave and Renee got married July 5th in the Bountiful Temple
family and friends,
thanks for your letters and support. i loved hearing about how the week went with the 4th of july and renee's wedding. i’m pretty sad that i wasn’t there but i’m glad that i’m here in chile.
the big news is the guy that was in the hospital just got out this week. he is doing really good. he is super prepared. we were able to talk about baptism this week and he said that the only goal that he has in this life is to get baptized. we set up a date with him this week and he has plans to get baptized on the 6th of august. the only problem is that its hard for him to get to church. he is in a wheelchair so we will see what we can do to help him. he is such a good guy.... really humble. he lives in a shack literally so this week we went to his house and helped him clean a little bit. this week we have to help him progress a little bit more.
i was able to do a baptismal interview this week for an investigator of the hermanas. she was a 9 year old girl but she knew a lot. it was really cool to talk to her and explain a little bit more about baptism. she is pretty excited. i should be doing another interview either this week or next week. i’m pretty excited about that.
i forgot to write this last week but our new president is here. his name is pres. harris from twin falls, idaho and he is super good. we had a conference with him last week. we talked about the gospel of Jesus Christ and we learned a lot about our purpose as missionaries. we also were able to have interviews with him and his wife for 3 minutes with our comps. there wasn’t much time but it was a good time to get to know him. we can tell that the mission is going to change but we still don’t know in what ways, so it will be interesting to see what time tells.
so on saturday we got transfer calls and i’m staying in my sector but i’m getting a new comp. his name is elder rodriguez and he is also from mexico (just like my last comp). i don’t know a thing about him. i honestly have never even heard of him so we will see what he is like. it’s going to be good to have some changes. i’m excited to see what this change brings.
i love you all. hope all goes well with the house move. i’m going to miss hearing about duarte.
the church is true.
