Chile - Osorno - Week 69 - .. lost of pics..

As you can see, it was a little difficult for 10 missionaries to fit into the bus
on the way home.. there were 52 people on that little bus and the majority
were not happy to be on the same bus with us..Mormons.....=)
Our travels may have consisted of a little hymn singing and contacting...

My Chilean family! Mamita, Papito, and Pequeña, their dog
She eats at the table with us everyday! =) Love them so much!!

Splits - Intercambios =)

Thursday our district went to the fair with our own table full of Pamphlets
and copies of the Book of Mormon! We had a good time! 

Family home evening at Bishops house!

Look at who we contacted in Rio Negro!
She received us with her arms opened wide! =)

We got Popsicle's on the way! Pardon my weird selfie......

Saturday we had a missionary activity in Rio Negro, 
about an hour away from Osorno. Here is the Rio and 
it is indeed Negro! ;)

Chile - Osorno - Week 68 - Dying here... lost of pics..

When a missionary is about to end their mission, all the other missionaries say that they are "dying". It's just starting to really hit me that I only have one month and that I am one of those missionaries. One month from today, I will be on an airplane home. For that reason, this past week has been a little rough, but in ways that I've never experienced. 

Everyday that we get rejected, appointments fall, my feet hurt, we are tired, the usual. I'm used to all of that, it's nothing new. It's the fact that pretty soon these struggles are not going to be struggles anymore.  I'm not going to be in the street everyday walking, looking for people to teach, bearing my testimony with all that I come in contact with, coming home exhausted from a long day's work, but waking up the next morning excited to do exactly the same thing. That's what's rough. I don't know if I'm ready to leave all of that behind. 

The good thing is that I still have a month of it left, so I am going to try to enjoy every moment! 

This last week has actually been pretty incredible! Amazing what my new comp and I have been able to do in our sector in just a short amount of time together!  Companionship unity really makes a difference! This last week we were able to find 4 new people to teach and we now have 2 people with a baptism date! 
If all goes well, which I know it will, we will  have two more baptisms before I go! One on the 2nd and the other on the 9th! It's going to be a great way to go out!  I'm sure after those two baptisms, I will feel better about coming home!  It's that I still have so much to do here this next month, It hurts to think that pretty soon I wont be a part of it, but I just need to focus on fulfilling my purpose her, and when 
I do, then I will be ready! (happy face, happy face, happy face.. 😁 this is my face on the outside, but this is how I really am on the inside 😲😖😞😆😓🤔😣😕😔😤😟😢😭😩😬😦😧😨😵😳😶 now you understand my dilemma. Lots of emotions....) 

Pero bueno! Super excited for these next few weeks! They are gonna be super crazy, but I'm ready to see some miracles! We are gonna go out with a BANG!!! This is the last time I am going to ask for your prayers.....Help me to end this thing well.

Chile - Osorno - Week 66 - Last Six Weeks.. !!!

     Well folks, today I officially start my last transfer!  Can`t believe how fast the time has gone! 
Six more weeks no mas! I'm super excited and super scared at the same time. I know so much has changed since I left, myself included, but I'm sure everything will be fine.

Let the countdown  begin! 

These last six weeks are gonna be the best! We have so many good people in our sector! This week our investigator Claudia accepted a baptism date for the 26th of this month! She is progressing so fast it's amazing! She has come to church every week for the last month and is participating more every time!  We are so excited for her and her family!

Like I said, we have so many good people, but they have been hard to find!  We have had so many appointments in the last few weeks, and every time we  go to visit they are never there! 

We have been a little frustrated, but maybe it's just the Lord testing our faith.  
It's been a little rough, but I know these next few weeks we are gonna see lots of miracles!! 

Well time to leave it all on the track! Im at my last 50 meters! Lets  GO!!!
