Week 81 – Curico, Chile

We had a good week this past week.

So to start off, we had zone conference. It was pretty great. We talked about the doctrine of Christ, as well as helping investigators vencer adicciones. It was really great. I realized that I wasn’t being as direct as I should be with investigators.  Almost all of the investigators have some sort of addiction.  There are a lot of people who want to stop their addiction, but they just don’t know how, so as missionaries, we can’t just be general and talk about the atonement or repentance, because they still won’t have a specific plan of how to leave the addiction. It was great.

Also, I made a Book of Mormon case out of an oatmeal box this past week, which is pretty cool. I’m in the process of putting cool pics on it, so it doesn’t look like I’m just walking around with an oatmeal box with scriptures inside, haha.

Elder Theiss and I are going great. We almost got our bikes stolen the other day, haha. Chained them to a pole in the wrong neighborhood, and we went to go contact like a block away, and then, like 20 mins later, some kids ran over to tell us that some flaites (or gangstas) were sawing through the chain!!  We booked it over and they ran away.  It was like 3 in the afternoon, too. Its my first flaite (sketchy) sector, and I’m not sure how I feel about it.  It’s a lot more crazy.  I’m definitely more of a tranquilo campo kind of guy, but it’s fun.

Anyways, have a great week guys!
