Dear Family and Friends,
This last week was great. We had some really good lessons and had some more really good divisions. In fact last night we went on divisions again. And i went with a brother in the ward that is in the stake presidency and is really good friends with our investigator. we talked to her about her baptism and how we are going to do it next saturday on the 27th and how she feels about it. She said that she still has alot more to learn. we assured her that we are always learning new things. And then Brother Silva, the member who was with me, told her all about the interview that she has to do and how the missionsry doing the interview wont let her get baptized if he doesnt think she is ready. She was happy about that. Then the brother asked her if the missionary thinks she is ready will she be baptized on the 27th and she said yes. He then set the interview date for this saturday so she can announce it in church if she passes the interview. She was really excited about it and knows that she has help. It was a great testimony of the power and help that members give when we do divisions. I didnt say very much during that time but the member helped her understand and commit to being baptized.
Also this week we had our Capilla Abierta. It started off a little slow and with nobody giving references but in the end it turned out good. We had about 30-40 references and a few were young couples who were really interested. One even asked hwo he can be baptized. So we are excited to go and visit with them. We also got alot of help from the ward members. It turned out great and everybody liked it.
For service this week we went and helped a sister move from her old house to her new house. She was really happy because she didnt have anybody else to help. Its always great to serve.
This week we had changes but im still in Los Olmos with Elder Peterson. My Saturday went great. We had a Chrsitams devotional with the whole mission. We did service, Ate lunch, watched The Princess Bride, and have talks from President and Sister Cook, and his counselors. Things are going great here. We have lots of support from the members and our investigators are doing well. If all goes well we will havea baptism on the 27th. So the prayers are needed. Her name is Amber. But thats all thats going on this week. Talk to you all on Christmas
I Wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS. And talk to you all on Christmas Day!!!!

Dear Family and Friends,
This week was a great week. On sunday we watched the Devotional of the First Presidency. It was really good. Also after church the power went out because a transformer blew up by the chapel and everybody thought that somebody had blown up a bomb. So we had to move everything to the bishops house to do all of the computer work that we had to do.
We have had some great lessons this last week and have left with a lot of members to visit people also. Not much exciting happened this week. So i dont have much to write about. But this next week i will. Because we have the Christmas Devotional at the temple that we are going to with a part member family and we have an activity in the chapel this sunday all day. We are going to have the doors open and anybody can enter to see whats inside.
But i cant believe that its almost Christmas and that tomorrow i complete 15 months in Chile. That time has just flown by. And these last 6 weeks with Elder Peterson have just disappeared.
I hope you all have a great week. And i would like to ask if you guys can write me your testimonies and temple marriage and not just co-living. And about how the Book of Mormon has helped you in your lives.
Love you all,
And i will send the birthday letter soon. I promise mom. I just dont have any place close where i can send it from. I have to travel 20 minutes in a bus to be able to send it.
This is a dog we found that is a mix between a basset and a rotty. And me on sunday.
First off......¡¡¡¡¡¡HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMY!!!!!!
Well i cant believe its December again!!The year has passed by so fast and im dying from the heat again. Im pretty sure i said it last year but i will say it again. Christmas is really weird without snow and cold temps. But its just the way it is down here.
This last week was a great week. We had some great lessons and had a reactivation of a sister in the ward. She is helping us to teach and visit Anbar one of our investigators that has a baptismal date. She is great and if everything works out, she will be baptized on the.
Also we set a baptismal date with an investigator named Nadia. She is the daughter in law of an active family. We are trying to reactivate her husband and baptize her. They talk a lot about getting sealed in the temple so we are really hopeful that it will work out.
I would like to ask if you can help us out with prayers for Ambar, Nadia and Miguel, Maria Teresa, Jairo, and Florencia, and the Jara Family. They are our investigators or less actives that are progressing the most and most of them have baptismal dates or are close to being active again.
Sorry this email is really short but not much happened but what i have said and lots of heat and it rained for 2 days. But thats about as exciting as it got.
Thanks for all the you guys do and we will talk again later.
