Wk 50 - The Birthday Week already?

Companion: Elder Copling
Area: Talchuano
we put like 10 grapes in our mouth
there was a cool cloud coming off the ocean one day!

It has been a good week! so guess what? elder copling and i will have another baptism this week! pretty cool huh? its a kid that is 18 and his name is matias. he is pretty cool and wants to be a missionary too. just so you guys know him a little better is he lives on his own because he had family troubles and he lives in an abanded house. he is way excited for his baptism too. he actually left with us yesterday to visit some people and he isnt even a member yet. he is pretty cool!! 

I have been reading a book lately that brother johnson gave me before i left. i found it in my bag and so i picked it up and started to read it. it is a book called believing christ. it talks about the atonement and how we don't only need to believe that christ lives and that he is real but believe in his words. some times we catch ourselves thinking how on earth can i be forgiven for that. that was a terrible mistake? but in reality through christ we can be forgiven for our sins. as i have read this book i have been able to understand better the atonement and what a miracle it is. it gives really good examples of the atonement and it has helped me to strengthen my testimony. 

i love this gospel and i know this church is true without a single doubt!! i love you guys and hope that you guys can have spiritual experiences every single day. i know it is kind of crazy now that i love to read and everything but i really do love this gospel. i will for sure enjoy my first and last birthday that i will have here on the mission through sharing the gospel. 

love you guys!!
