Terremotos y fiestas


So this was a super fun week!  We worked hard, found several new people to teach and a new investigator came to church.  He´s really good and wants to keep coming and participate with the Young men  in the Ward.  We´re excited to see him progress.

So, an earthquake hit here in Chile this week.  It hit a lot farther north than we are, so everyone's safe here.  We are praying for those affected in the north and grateful for the Lords protection for His missionaries.  The week before, we had a conference with President and Sister Bluth.  Sister Bluth told us that she had felt the impression to talk about emergency preparation.  It was cool to see the inspiration that our President and his wife receive for the mission.

Also, this week was Chile's Independence Day, 18 de septiembre!  We had our preparation day all day on Friday.  In the morning we played soccer with two zones and several members.  Afterwards we had a huge asado barbeque with a family in our Ward and later we went to a Ward activity until about 8. We ate tons of empanadas, sopaipillas, pajaritos, choripanes, and mote con huesillo.  I'm still full! Almost every house we contacted since gives us empanadas to take home!

Nevertheless they did fast and pray oft, and did wax stronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer and firmer in the faith of Christ, unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, yea, even to the purifying and the sanctification of their hearts, which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God. Helaman 3:35

As we put Heavenly Father before everything else, everything else in life falls into place.  Yield your hearts unto God, and He will make you much more than you can make yourself.  Thanks for your love and prayers.
