I have chosen to serve an 18mo mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "I know the Lord is loving and kind. I know that He knows us individually and perfectly. I am so grateful to be a servant of my Savior Jesus Christ. Being a missionary has already been the best decision I have made. I love this Gospel and my dear Heavenly Father."
My MOTTO: Work Hard, Pray Harder!
The One with the Freezing and the Heat! 6/14
JUNE 14, 2017
Hello friends and family!
This week was really normal and nothing really happened! One thing about Chile that I really dont like is the weather! It is all over the place! One day it is hot and we are sweating with all the walking and the next we are freezing because we cannot warm up! It is terrible and more than half the mission is sick because of this! So this week has been full of this and terrible weather. There is a lot of pollution here in Santiago so many days we walk outside and we cannot even see in front of our faces! It is aweful! But what can you do, as missionaries we will go out and teach the gospel, no matter the weather!
This week was my mom´s Birthday! I want to make a shout out to her and let her know how much I love her! Mom you are the reason that I am the person who I am today! You have been there for me through it all and have never let me down! You are my biggest support in all things and has been on my left and right from the beginning! I thank you so much for everything you ahve done for me and for all the love that you have shown me! I love you so much! Happy Birthday!
Things are going great in the work and we are loving it! We have a family from Colombia who want to get baptized so that they can one day be sealed together forever! It is the most amazing thing! We are working with them so that they can enter the waters of baptism so that one day they can enter the doors of the temple. This really is the goal for all the people we teach! It is the best to help explain to this little family that they really can be together for all time and eternity. The expression on their faces when we were able to explain that... most priceless thing ever!
I hope you all have a great week and always remember who you are! LOVE YOU ALL!

Hey everyone! This week was a great week here in Chile Santiago Sur! We had a fun week with some great ward activities for the CHile Independence Day and a lot of success in the work! So last Saturday we had our huge ward party and we ate a yummy Chilean BBQ and had a war of Ping Pong! My comp and I were doing great until we went up against some Hermano and he killed us, but it was fun anyway!
THis week we had the opportunity to listen tto and have a Conference with a member if the General Authority 70, Elder Bragg! It was so amazing to hear and have a Conference with Elder Bragg. He gave so much insiration and wisdom for our little mission! One thing that really stuck out to me was his way of telling us how we can find and have miracles in the work of the Lord. It is a mix of three very important things, 1. Having a love so deep that it turns to charity 2. Having the highest but most acheivable expectations and 3. Integrity. These 3 things are the pathway to findin…
SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 Hello everyone! I hope that this week was great and eventful! I had the greatest week and had some crazy things happen! BUT before I start I would just like to give a shoutout to the best little brother in the world, my little Janson and wish him the Happiest of Birthdays! It was this past Sunday and he is now 15 years old!!! I cannot believe it! HE IS HUGE! I hope it was the greatest day little man and I hope you know how much I love you and thought of you that day! You were in my heart all day long!! I miss you so much but will see you soon mu little buddy! I love you!
Okay so to start out the week we had the most amazing service project ever! We were able to help a family in great need! Sadly an entire house burnt down! EVERYTHING was destroyed and we had to enter the house and clear all the burnt things out. It was a two day job and it was pretty fun, so sad though. We would find things that were kinda okay like some toys of the kids, or clothes, or even just so…
JULY 5, 2017 HELLO everyone! This has been a crazy, fun, surprising, and a whirlwind of a week! It started out with the BAPTISM OF GUSTAVO and XIMENA!!!! They both were baptized on Saturday and Confirmed the following Sunday! It was one of the greatest days in my mission! They are now members of the church and are working to be sealed in the Temple one year from now! I was filled with joy to see them both in white and 100% clean! True Celestial Happiness right there! Now, not everything went the ways that we wanted it to go! It is not a real baptism if there isnt at least one problem now is it? LOL. First, the hot water in the church was not working! We could not figure out why it would not turn on and could not get it to work! We said a prayer and we were coming everything we could! We figured out it was the batteries so me and my comp go running to the nearest store to change the batteries! Luckily, close by there is a store that is like Home Depot and they have all types of batterie…
