Indoor Success

This week was really boring to be honest but we saw MIRACLES. My foot was still bugging me so my Zone Leaders condemned me to the house for most of the week. It was a good opportunity to get to know Elder Amaya better and do some Deep study of the scriptures. We called and set appointments and left the house but didn't do much street contacting due to the fact that nobody is ever in the street. Too windy and cold.

We have been working with a few people and out of nowhere a young man named Pablo began to progress a lot. We finished teaching him all he needed to be taught and he decided to go ahead and get baptized as soon as possible. So we are going to be having a baptismal service this Saturday. I AM SO EXCITED. It's been a while since we have had success and all of the sudden with Pablo and another investigator named Joan who is also progressing, we almost have too much to handle. It is going to be Elder Amaya's first baptism here in the mission and I am happy for him too. Pablo's wife is a member and his brother-in-law is flying in to baptize him so that will be cool too.

The cold honestly isn't that bad. The missionaries made it seem like I was going to die here but I have been fine. We have met lots of cool people and there are actually a lot of people here from Colombia and Peru, so we don't talk with just Chileans. We knock lots of doors but here instead of ringing a door bell you just scream hello at the house until someone comes out. So I frequently have sore knuckles and a hoarse voice.

I love the people of Chile. They are small, grumpy, and very lazy and I don't know what they speak but it isn't Spanish, but I love them. I feel I am growing and helping further the work of the Lord.
