A great week!!

Dear Family,

This week was great. We had a lot of success with our investigators and finding new people. Our investigator that is trying to find his answer to the Book of Mormon still hasn't prayed yet but we are trying to animate him to do it. Also we found a new investigator yesterday. He is super ready for the Gospel and was asking us all sorts of questions about the Gospel and told us that he feels that our church is the true church! Super Cool!! He is a great guy and his wife is a less active member. They love the missionaries and are going to teach me how to cook Chilean Food!

Our sector is pretty sweet too. The people are super nice. They all try to talk to us in English. My companion is the bomb. He is an awesome Elder from Kansas and we get along great. We are the only two gringos in our sector so everyone looks us funny. We have 4 missionaries living in our house. Me and my companion and another companionship. Their names are Elder Facal and Elder Bejarano. They are pretty cool too. I think i sent you a picture with the four of us when we went to Cerro Chena. I haven't been too sick and i think i have a cold now but its bearable. Its been pretty cold here and down poured the other day too. We had rivers flowing down the street. Im pretty stoked for my mission and I'm having a great time, As for my friends i really don't email them all too much. I receive emails in a group email but that's all. I've talked to a few of them.

Well that's all that i have for this week. Have a great week and i hope you start to feel better dad.
Love, Elder Ashworth

Dear Family and Friends,

Well this past week i have hit the 10 month mark. I cant believe that it has passed so fast. This last week was really good. We were in the house for a while due to some complications that we had with a hurt foot but everything is back to normal. But we had a great a week and a super awesome with an investigator that we have. His family are members but he hasnt been baptized because he doesnt believe in the Book of Mormon. So we had a very powerful lesson on the Book of Mormon and he is going to pray about it because he really does have a desire to know the truth.

Other then that today we played soccer for about three hours and it was super fun. We played on turf fields with some ward members. Not much else passed this week except for the fact that its raining like crazy here and the streets are rivers. The water reaches up above your ankle.

Love you all!

¡¡First week in La Pintana!!

Hello from Santiago,

This week was pretty awesome. I'm training a missionary that is from Kansas. His name is Elder Thompson and is awesome. He is owning it up out here in the field. He talks to everyone and commits everyone to read and pray about the church. I can tell that it is going to be a great 3 months with him. 

As for this sector its pretty cool too. Nothing really happens here so there's not a lot to talk about. Except that we did meet a guy that believes that Jesus was never crucified but died in Gethsemane. He says that the scriptures say that. He belongs to a new church down here that just started up recently. But it was a very interesting conversation. We also met some really cool ward members. The ward here is really great. They are all willing to come and hep us visit people. we also got an investigador named Marcos. His wife and daughters are memebrs but he hasnt been baptized so we are working hard with him and are hoping for a baptism. But i will let you all know how everything goes. 

Today we hiked a hill called Cerro Chena it was really awesome. It was harder then i thought it would be or Ive just gotten wayyyy fat and am out of shape. I'm not sure which one, but we had a great view of the Santiago Valley. Then we had a prayer given by President Cook at the top for the mission and all the missionaries serving in our mission. It was a really cool experience. 

well, im glad that everything worked out with the move and that everything is in its place. I hope you all have a great week and recover from the crazy last two weeks!

Love you all, Elder Ashworth

Family and Friends,

First off im sorry to hear all about what happened this last week. That Heidi lost her job and has to move. That you guys have to move. That grandma Woolf passed away and that nobody showed up to help you move moms friend. It sounds like it was a tough week but that you all survived it. Also great job on winning during your football camp Preston. i hope that all works out well for you guys.

i will now tell you about my week. First off we couldn't leave the house on Monday or Saturday for the soccer games of Chile, so it was really a bummer that we couldn't go teach. Second, I got changed from my old Sector El Bosque. Im going to Los CastaƱos in a zone called Las Arucarias. I dont have a companion either. I will be receiving my companion tomorrow. He is a new missionary from the MTC. I will be training for the next two changes. And to make things better, im going to a whitewash. Which is where i nor my companion knows the sector so we will both be new in the sector. I will have to find things out for myself. But im really excited for this next change.

Other then that there is no other news. Im doing fine and havent been sick. Still trying to be the best that i can be and help those who i can help. Well thats all i have, so i love you all and have a great week.
