Elder Bayles and I had a good week of hard work! Tomorrow is a big day :)! First, Elder Bayles and I are going to a musical number for district meeting with a guitar medley I arranged of “I´ll Go Where You Want Me to Go”, “Army Of Helamen”, "and “When I Am Baptized”.  We will film it and I will try to see if I can get permission to publish it YouTube. It’s way good. Also tomorrow we will have two baptisms! I will send pictures. We have made an awesome program for it! 

Everything is going well. I love you all so much!

We had a good week this week! Working our hardest, like always :).  We are working hard with our investigators and they are excited for their upcoming baptisms. Cool thing, our 19-year-old investigator invited one of his best friend over to listen to our message. We shared the message of the restoration. To make a long story short, his friend now has a baptismal date :)! Now these two best friend will be getting baptized! How awesome is that! :)

One of our investigators (21 years old), plays the flute and piano so amazingly! Elder Bayles and I decided to print off some sheet music and give it to her. We gave her piano sheet music for "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing". We are planning on doing a musical number with guitar and piano at sacrament meeting with her to introduce her to the ward :). I hope she will feel the Spirit and feel welcomed by the ward members.

Elder Bayles is teaching me how to play soccer, which I am so grateful for.  I realized: "Whoa, I am half Austrian and half Chilean and soccer is a big part of these cultures!  So I am going to embrace my European and Chilean heritage and learn to play soccer like Messi! Fortunately, Elder Bayles played professionally before his mission, so he is teaching me so well. 




 I hope y’all have a wonderful week! Just know I love you all sooo much! You all make me so proud to be a missionary. Thank you for your support. I am praying for you all every night :)!

Okay I don’t have much time at all to email, but I will try my best :)So, it has been an amazing week! J We started it off by having a Noche De Hogar (Family Home Evening) with a new investigator family we found. When we planned it out with them, we didn’t expect that they would be so serious about having the Noche De Hogar. But, I guess word has gone around that I give cool light shows. When we arrived to their house we found that they had invited all their family! Their grandparents, cousins, and all!  This house was packed! I gave a light show as usual, after which we shared the message of the restoration! They all loved it and we were able to find a ton more investigators through this experience J.  We will be trying to schedule some baptism dates with them this week :)

Haha, my birthday was great! Familia Arbaza invited us over for lunch. To my surprise they had the whole house decorated for us! I got a little emotional seeing how much this family loves us. They made ricissimo tortas (yummy cakes) for us! Elder Bayles is completing a year on his mission, so the celebration was for him as well! 








Then they made me change my clothes, close my eyes, and walk outside... Then they all started throwing eggs and flower and herbs at me!!!!! I was all like WHAT THE HECK????!?! Then things escalated and the family started throwing water around and they started throwing everyone including the grandma in the pool! Except us, as we are missionaries! But they still managed to completely soak Elder Bayles with water, hahaha!
But, wow, what a week! On Sunday we went to go pick up two of our investigators for church! Their mother was all ready as well, but she was saddened to find out that she had to stay back and watch the house... But both of her sons loved church! We actually brought one of them along to a baptism of the other Elders. It turned out that our mission president and his assistants were there. So, our investigator met our mission president and they talked for while. Our president was surprised to see how much our investigator knew about the Church J. After the baptism, our investigator shared with us that he the had loved it and had felt at peace. He also said he would like to serve a mission! WHOO HOO! This was amazing and beautiful.
I hope you all try to find opportunities to help one another. “Be Love!”

Thank you for praying for me. That means so much to me.. My comp and I decided to take it a bit easier this week, as we were so exhausted from last week. We were still able to find a few new investigators and references. My companion, Elder Bayles, is great example to me. When he first came out to the mission he actually tore every single one of his ligaments and had to go home for 8 months for surgery. Many people told him not to return to the mission because it would not be good for his knee. But he did return anyway. He wanted to follow the example of Nephi.
We have been working very well with our investigators! We are helping a 19 year-old investigators to quit smoking. He asked us to give a blessing to help him do so. :) 

We found a new potential investigator. He is about 60 years old. He came up to us and spoke English! He lived in the states for 40 years. He was so kind! He was so happy to meet us and he demanded that we wrote down his address and phone number and visit him this week to teach him! Wow, that was probably the easiest contact we have ever done. We didn’t have to do anything but write down what he told us! J
Next week we were supposed to have a baptism. However, our investigator told us she really wants to continue attending church and study more in the scriptures before her baptism. So we moved it to the 7th of March :).  We are happy she wants to learn more and gain a firm testimony before baptism :). This is a good sign of a firm convert!

It has been so hot lately! Elder Bayles and I decided to move our mattresses into the main room on the floor because it is sooo much cooler in there. Luckily, last night it rained so much! Ahh, it was best thing ever! We had cold breezes and everything!! :) Last night I also gave a light show for a birthday party for a little girl in our ward :) I did the light show to "All of me" by John Legend and Lindsey Stirling. It was fun :) 













This is a lomo pizza. It is so amazing.
