3 months!

Hard to believe but I have already been out over three months. It seems like it has gone fast but at the same time really slow too. The days seem like weeks and the weeks seem like days which is the only way you can explain it. Hope you are all doing well though. I actually do have a little bit to write about today which is different haha.

First thing, on Tuesday we went to a place called the disembocadura. Its the place that the Bio Bio river meets the ocean. Our ward had a priesthood activity there and it was super fun. We climbed the hills that surround the beach there and took a bunch of pictures. I forgot my camera at home today though so the pictures will come next week. We had a barbecue and stuff and just hung out and had a good time. Played soccer on the beach and stuff. It was awesome. Kind of like a second P Day during the week.

Yesterday I watched the worlds largest disaster of a primary program in our ward. It was hilarious. Half of the kids refused to say their parts and one girl threw up on the stage area she was so nervous. Another really little kid cried uncontrollably and had to be taken out. And the entire Stake Presidency was there during all of it. It wasnt your normal sacrament meeting to say the least.

Also I have good news and bad news. We are working with a family where the dad is a member but inactive and has a daughter that wants to get baptized. They both want to become totally active again. But the dad finally had an interview to declare him totallly active again and he wants to baptize his daughter. He has an interview with the bishop this week to set a date for the baptism of his daughter. Since she is 9 years old she is technically considered a convert and it will count as a baptism for the mission too. Their name is the Moldonado family and they're awesome. I can´t remember if I had told you about them or not.

The bad news, we had to let our super catholic guy named Francisco go. He just wasnt willing to get baptized even though we tried everything we could to help him feel the need. So that was a bummer. No one here understands the significance of the Restoration and that ONLY our church has the authority to baptize. Its frustrating.

No ,Javier is not scheduled for the 26th anymore because he didn´t come to church this past week. We have to meet with him and re commit him. But Eduardo is doing awesome and so is his daughter. His wife is a little reluctant to accept it but it really feels like its only a matter of time. We haven´t been able to meet with Felipe any more but we have a cita tomorrow. Things are going really well here then I guess you could say.

Also I know that Star Wars comes out this week. I will be depressed the day it does and I ask that none of you give me any spoilers. Hope you all have good weeks and I love you all!
