what's happening?

Hola everyone, how are we all doing? Thats Good.

But to start off this week I have some depressing news first. We had to move the date of Santos Back to the 28th of November because we found out that he drank tea last monday and you have to be living the commandments for at least 2 weeks before you can be baptized. That was a bummer but that guy is too ready to be baptized. He is super excited for it and whenever I talk to him he always makes me smile.

We have also found more people. One guy named Javier who we want to place a baptismal date on. He is a rare find for the missionaries in Chile. He believes in God, doesn´t go to a church, was excited for us to pass by, and he has all of his teeth. Incredible. But he is super willing to just learn and know more about God. He totally said that he believes that the Book of Mormon could be true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet. He is an awesome guy. Also, we have an investigator who is ridiculously Catholic but he believes everything that our church teaches. He has a testimony of the book of mormon and of joseph smith yet he just doesn´t understand that not both churches can be right. He loves everything we teach to him. Its difficult though because he said at the very beginning of the lesson "Im not going to get baptized, Im Catholic, but your church is great." Very confusing to me.

Besides that the Spanish is doing pretty well and Im learning pretty darn fast. I just make the little mistakes that make me sound very gringo. I have been called peter parker thousands of times. And been compared to some pencil company that they have here I guess. 

It was a long week and its nice to have this P Day because I am really tired but missions are great. Super Fun and Im loving it. Miss you all.

Interviews Nov 13th

Interviews were good. The president lives in the nicest apartment building in Concepcion too. He´s awesome though. I really feel like he cares about each one of us personally and that's really nice.
