Hey what’s up guys! I’m writing you this week from Puerto Mont because we have the conference with Elder Braggs tomorrow .Looking forward to it, it should be great!
So this week has been awesome. The storm was pretty awesome, we just put ourselves in our rain pants and rain jacket and just went to work. We got worked on pretty hard. One part of the island got so wrecked that it got cut off from Chiloe and made its own island! It was cool. They called it a catastrophe, but we were fine just a little wet. The whole time walking in the streets that day, getting pelted by rain coming in at rapid pace we just always looked at each other and said, “Only in the south of Chile”. Ha-ha it’s a good time!
So anyway this week we learned from an investigator how to make Milcao, it’s like a southern Chile thing. They’re super good. It’s a lot of work to make but hey at some point I’ll teach you guys. We ended up making like 70 so afterwards we went and gifted them to a bunch of people. So anyways also the girl from my story last week, our investigator, is going to be baptized this week because her parents couldn’t go last week so we ended up moving it to this week. We’re still super excited! Yesterday we had to go to get the signature from her parents, it was awkward but we ended up talking a lot with them about the church. It was chill, now we get along super well with them. I was sick all week which stunk, I didn’t sleep for 3 days because I had major sinusitis and couldn’t breathe at all. It was terrible, but now I’m a lot better, just a little cough, but it was tough with the weather and everything this week, but its chill.
We’ve had some good lessons this week! We’ve been teaching that family of 7 and man it’s crazy. We’ve decided that we can’t teach them like regular lessons, with video and scriptures and folletos and what not, but we have to teach them like a primary class. So this week we started to print out little games and stuff and then relate them to the gospel and it’s been a lot more effective, and now they love when we come over and they’re all super excited to get baptized! So yeah it’s been a pretty good week, nothing to complain about. Baptisms this week and many more to come, I’m dreading the cambios though because I might be out of here and I don’t want to go, I want to be here for the baptisms of my investigators! But we will see, I hope I stay though. Anyways have a great week!!

2,3,4. Baptism this week but the font drained itself right before...so we had to fill it up in like 10 minutes, so as they started, we went and had the great idea to use the fire hose ha-ha and we were throwing buckets and everything...then we had it all good and then it started automatically draining itself so we had to do their baptism like super-fast, it was funny ha-ha
