Week 69 – Almendroza, Chile

Hey ya’ll!

Things are super good!

We have been working with our investigator, David.  He is sooooo awesome. In Chile right now, there are tons of Haitianos that come for work and a better opportunity.  They usually come to live in the big cities, which is why I haven’t really met many of them because I’ve been in just the campo no mas.  But here in Santa Cruz, there is a lot. We’ve been teaching him, and usually the problem with teaching Haitianos is that they don’t speak a lot of Spanish, they just speak Creole. But David was a language professor in Haiti antes, so he speaks perfect English and Spanish.  He’s progressing really well. This past week we taught him the plan of salvation, and it was so awesome. It is one of my favorite lessons to teach because it really gives us hope in this life in Jesus Christ.  We can be with our families forever.  He has a baptismal date for the 9th of February and it looks like he will be baptized!!!!

Also this week, we had interviews with President Harris. Just another fantastic experience. We talked about Peor es Nada, my last sector, a little bit, and then about the mission. He is an amazing mission president. I love him a lot.

This week we also had intercambios in Pichilemu, which was super fun. Pichilemu is one of three beach sectors in the mission. It was great. We basically just contacted the centro all day. We met a ton of tourists and we were able to talk to people from everywhere, even the USA!  Apparently, the beach is world famous for surfing, so tons of people always go there for the summer.

Things are going great. Anyways, I love ya’ll.  Have a great week.
