weekly email

Hey everyone. This week was pretty great. I dont know why so great but it was. It has been a little different living with just my companion but its still pretty fun. First thing this week is that we should have two baptisms this coming Saturday which will be super awesome. Mariella for sure and Jerson probably. Im really hoping it happens because we have already had to move his baptismal date and he wasnt super happy haha. 

But Cool experience of the week. We went looking for a future investigator, knocked on his door and his mom came out. She told us he wasnt there but we asked if we could share with her and after a little bit of persuasion she said yes. Only to a prayer is all to help her in her day. We went in and were going to say the prayer when she started to tell us all of the problems that she has in her life with her son, Erik. She has depression and really a super empty life. Her son is addicted to drugs and cant seem to come out of it. She told us that she didnt know why she let us in because she just hasnt had any desires to do anything and much less, let us in. She said that she felt like something was telling her to do it and to just listen to us. It was really cool to hear her experience as she described her feelings from before and alfter talking with us. Her name is Mercedes and I am really glad to have gotten the chance to know her and it should be really great to be able to pass by again and really share a lesson with her. 

More than that, we had a conference that lasted forever on Wednesday. I was in the church from 830 in the morning until 8 at night. I was so mentally tired that day but it was an awesome conference. And those were the highlights of the week.

Here is picture from the highlight of Chillan. The Cathedral.
