Impressive Tan Lines

Hey guys!! 

So this past week was pretty hot, and yes the golf tan lines are coming back nicely but now I’ve got a collar tan line. haha. It’s cookin' down here, but that keeps us motivated to teach lessons. I had two division last week one with Elder Alanso and one with Elder Brophy. Elder Alanso is pretty awesome. He’s from Mexico, and this is his last sector he was in my sector before so a lot of people knew him. Elder Brophy and I are pretty close now, and we spend almost all of our time together on the mission. This time we went to his sector. It’s always fun to be with the greenies. 

We had another great lesson with José this week, and he is so ready to be baptized. He’s been our investigator the whole time that I've been here, and i always look forward to our lessons. This week we had a practice baptism interview, and we talked about how he want to baptized, how excited he is, and how he wants to learn more and be active in the church. It was hard because after he said that, he got a job opportunity working and the mini water park place and the hours are really strict and as of now he would end up working on Sundays. It’s hard because he and we don't want him to get baptized this week and then go inactive. We told him to ask his boss if he could have Sundays off. We re still hopeful that hell get baptized. We had a lesson with Valentina who we baptized about 3 weeks ago and she's doing great. It's interesting because now were trying to reactivate her aunt and her dad. There are so many inactives!! We talked to her dad and about the importance of testimonies and obeying the commandments. 

Anyway, I love it here Chileans are awesome and always joking around! I don't always get what they’re saying, but that’s when you just have to laugh anyway. It’s weird to think that the time difference is 5 hours now. I’m literally living in the future. haha.

Elder Brown and I are trucking along and had a good week. We found a lot of new investigators. This week is going to be awesome because we have a member of the quorum of the 12 coming to speak to us. Elder Nelson is coming!! The assistants have sent out some pretty strict messages about how we have to look are absolute best in our best suits (cleaned), shoes shined, and our hair cut within the week. It just goes to show how special this opportunity is and how sacred prophets are. We’re supposed to come with questions with the promise that he will answer them. That’s super awesome and I’m excited. Love and peace out!
