So I’m doing really well right now siting in a cyber in Santiago because I’m on divisions because my comp had to go do his visa stuff, so I’m with Elder Clegg, one of my good friends in the mission, who’s from my CCM group. This week we had Stake Conference, so that was pretty great, but it was hard to get people to go to the stake center.
The funniest thing that happened probably was this morning. We went to go eat in a food court in this mini mall (because we can’t enter the mall malls.)We were eating some completos (hot dogs Chilean style) when we saw this guy come up and rob one of those little rides that they have at the store. Nobody did anything, and my comp and I just laughed. After that I bought some ties—I’m preparing a Christmas package for Nick—it’s going to be sick.
This week I realized something really important: the most important thing in the mission is to recognize gain and maintain the spirit. Yeas, seems kind of obvious, but it’s harder than it sounds. I want to become good at that, and to feel and see the spirit work in my life. I’m going to start keeping a spiritual record of the impressions that I have in order to better develop the ability to see the spirit in my life. Love you guys so much. I’m working hard.
