Wk 54 - transfers!!

Companion: Elder Copling
Area: Talchuano
dunkin donuts this morning
 i am getting bit a little! haha
elder withers is our zone leader who finished his mission today. he is from idaho

so this was pretty crazy what happened! last night president calls my comp as zone leader in linares so that was pretty crazy! elder haws and elder duarte who live with us, elder haws got a call from president too to be a zone leader! so what they did is they took out 2 missionarys in our house and now i am a trainer finishing the training of elder duarte! so i will live alone with my comp! it definitely will be weird! but i am very excited for this transfer! 

So just as i told you before that elder mitton who lives close to us finished his mission today. his parents came here to pick him up! he will be home next week and i gave him a letter that he will give to you guys Monday or tuesday! so you will get to know him! he was a hard worker here and finished his mission as an assistant. So you will get to know him! Fast mailing system right!? 

This past week i want to share an experience that was very cool. we went to visit a member and she took us in her daughters house that lived next door because her house was dirty or i am not sure what the reason was but we sat down and started to talk and we found out that her daughter served a mission and was inactive for some hard things that have happened in her life. Her name is Roxana and she has a very strong testimony. We shared helaman 5:12 and we asked if she could read it. she started to read the first line and couldnt finish the first line as it felt like the spirit entered the room and she started crying. I felt i got hit by the spirit too and we commited her to start reading and praying again and to go to church. in that moment she was excited to go to church but she ended up getting sick and didnt go but that experience was way cool! i felt the spirit so strongly in that moment. We will keep working with her and get her to church! 

Well i got lots to do today too! i told you guys that we have permission to watch chile play in the copa de america so we are going to an investigators house tonight to watch it! it will be sweet!! i actually enjoy watching soccer now too!! haha i have changed a bit!

know that i love you guys and i am always praying for you guys!! take care!!
