¡¡LA ULTIMA SEMANA!! - August 19 2015

Well, This last week was great! we have been working non-stop. We have tons of thing to still do before i leave and few hours to do them in. 

This last week i went to the temple with Pres. Cook and his Wife for the last time here in Chile. It was great to be there with all of the missionaries that i have served with and our great president and his wife. Also we had a devotional of goodbyes. It was great too. I got to see people that i havent seen in months and years!! literally, i saw someone from my first ward. And i left that ward 1 and 1/2 years ago. But it was great. But it is a bummer to see the mission come to an end but i know my next step in life is coming up. I just hope im prepared :/ Im exited and nervous but i know everything will be fine!  

This saturday we have a baptism and they are super excited. Paulina is ready and her dad is excited to baptize her. I have seen this family chnage just over the last few months. Its amazing what the gospel can do to people. 

Well, wish me luck and i will see you guys on Tuesday!!!

Love you all,

MIssionary Work Has Never Been Busier - Aug 12 2015

This last week has just been insane when it comes to teaching people. We are running everywhere trying to teach all of the people that want to meet with us. And we are seeing just tons of progress from the people we visit. IN fact we have a  baptism planned for my last saturday here in Chile. She is amazing and so is her family. Her father is stoked to baptize his daughter and we are super happy for them. 

Also i have a hectic schedule this coming week. With all of the appointments, baptisms, and this for the missionaries that go home. I'm going to be running all over Santiago. :) But hey, at least I'm busy!!! I will be ending my mission on a good note. Which is really good and nice. 

I honestly dont know what else to tell you guys.......oh. On our way to the grocery store two guys passed us on the street running from the grocery store. They had just robbed some stuff and were running away :) Its a common thing here. In fact the security doesn't even do anything. Also the guys were faster then the that didnt help. 

Love you all,

Another Week Down! August 5th 2015

Dear Family,

Well, this last week was pretty good. It rained a little bit and we walked around looking people. Thats about all that happened. So i hope you all have a great week!! Chao!!!

Actually, this last week was a good week. We had some pretty bomb lessons and Paulina ( an investigator with a baptismal date) is super excited to get baptized and came to church. Her dad is Luis, we recently reactivated him and he is super excited to baptize her and her mom is being reactivated too now!!! Things are going great with that family. Then, Mario and Doris, a family of less actives we teach finally told us the real reason they dont go to church so now we can help them even more by addressing their real problem at the site. Its like a doctor. If you dont know where the cancer tumor is, you cant remove it. It would be just a shot in the dark knowing that its in the lung but now knowing exactly where. Thats whats so great about the gospel. It has the medicines to attack at the site and help to heal us.

Also we had divisions this week and we did early morning contacts. They were good too. I felt like our district really trusts us now. 

Today we went to the center of Santiago again. We went with Danilo and Consuelo. Two members. We took some cool pics and got to see a military parade thing. It happens when they change guards at La Moneda. Its similar to the White House. And i ate some some bomb Peruvian food. It was really good. I want to visit Peru sometime soon. I think it would be great!!!

Well, I think that is all for this week so i will talk to you all later!

P.S. I would like to go to Texas Roadhouse when i get home for lunch!!!

An Interesting Trip.....

Querido Family!!!

So this last week was interesting....

First off, my comp had another foot problem and we had to stay in the house to help him feel better but that didnt really matter much. If its necessary, we have to do it. Then we had a great time at church and everything went well. But the big news is that we have to move apartments. We are going to floor 8 instead of living on floor 17. So we are in the moving process. We have stuff everywhere and in both houses. 

Also, today we went on a tour of Santiago that we did for ourselves. We went and visited a few places. And there we met two gypsies. The one tried to rob Elder Almandoz and the other talked to me, my comp, and Elder orchard (The comp of Elder Almandoz) so that the other could rob him. But it didnt work. They walked away empty handed and not very happy :) They figured we were tourists and that they could scam us. But we know better! 

This week we had some bomb lessons. First off was with a man named Oliver. Two members invited us over to teach him, Hna. Consuelo and Hno. Danilo. We taught about the families because he was passing for a hard time. You could feel the spirit and he liked the lesson. Also we had a lesson with Mario and Doris. It was amazing!! She asked how she can be more humble and control her tongue better. It was one of the biggest changes i have ever seen in them. Its true that the spirit makes miracles. Also there is just a different feel in their house now. Lastly we went to Luis's house for his birthday. There his primo talked to us. My comp also exploded because he was kind of talking trash on the states. I just think its kinda funny to see their reactions. But his prima was very receptive. she listened to us and asked a ton about what we do here as missionaries. We then shared and left her with a few things to read and watch. it was really cool. 

Then i want to tell you guys about a super member here. He is a return missionary and is married but the other day he helped us in a lesson and afterward he went home. We then went to another lesson and her son wasnt there so we called him back up and he came to our rescue in 5 minutes. He is awesome and is always willing to help us. Let me tell you, the missionaries are always looking for help!!

Well, thats all i have for this week have a great one!!!

Love you all,
Elder Ashworth
