Another English Teacher in the Family.....

Hola Familia y Amigos,
Yes, we did start english class this week again in this sector. How did you know mom, is there something on Facebook? And the Hermana that put a picture up is who we eat lunch with now! haha we pay here a little bit every day to eat there. She cooks really good. I told her to add me lol. Maybe you should change my name on FB to Elder Farnsworth so it is easier to find me. And really, Olivia is going to Conce?! AYY Chile la lleva. haha thats so sick maybe i can go to the MTC when she is there, who knows. Probably not they are kinda strict on that. Elder Garner (who was in the airport in arizona when i left) is there and he will have a year when she gets to the MTC. wow that means ill have a year too...Crazy. This week, i have 9 months. Wow. So we taught English class like i said and like 7 people went! There were 2 haitians there and I tried to learn a little creole lol but i only learned like 2 things. A guy that thought we prayed to Johnny Smith was there and we had the chance to clear up some things and explain that we arent weirdos that worship men! Haha it was a good class and we hope to see more people. And one of the investigators went to the church again and has friends already and loves it! We basically have to wait till after the conference and the visit from the apostle for her baptism but its okay! The other investigator didnt go because his friend (who is less active) had a few problems in the morning and he is really shy and didnt want to go alone..We are worried about it but we are going to keep going with members to help fellowship him. We are soo blessed in the sector for our diligence these weeks. We are going home dead and barely taking time for the dinner because we are just working and walking and teaching. We had a lot of lessons with members present this week and we found 10 new people. Its just crazy knowing that we arent doing anything. The Lord is litterally just putting things in our path. And i know there is even more waiting for us. BE DILIGENT. Especially you missionaries. Work and knock doors or walk or talk or do whatever you can even if you think that there will be nothing or its not worth it. Because even if nothing happens right away, God will bless you guys with something else later on in the week. I know that this is the key to missionary work, diligence and following the Spirit. I love you guys, i hope you have a great conference weekend and have the answers to your questions. 
Sorry the computer doesnt like my camera again im going to find a way eventually to send pictures.

Hola familia!!
Well Dad is working like crazy for Tax season and we are working like crazy for new investigators and to just survive basically! Haha we had an awesome week though! Well i dont remember if i told you but my companion sings good so the mission asked him to sing in a mission choir for the Conference with the Apostle. (There is a mission conference with the apostle and then we have luck because he is coming to our Stake Quilicura for other conference). So anyways, my companion has to go to the office every Tuesday and Friday in the morning and I have exchanges with Elder Carillo those days! And this week we had an exchange (or whatever the gringo elders call it in english) with our Zone Leaders. I went with Elder Richardson in our sector and we taught some haitians because he knows Creole pretty good. And we ordered pizza because why not :)
In the week, we wanted to fast to find new investigators. We put the goal at the beggining of the week for like 4 new people i think. And the end of the week, we had 9. I think we can say that fasting works! Wow it was so cool this week. So the Mission has norms for numbers and the Zone has other norms and goals. In our zone, they have a norm for people with baptismal date, lessons with members, new investigators, and investigators progressing (go to church and have a date for baptism). They are decent goals and this week, we did all of them! We had two in the church who are soooo good. One is the sister of a recent convert and she just came from Peru Monday. We met her tuesday, taught another day, and she went to church and wants to learn everything! Another one that went is a friend of a less active and he asked her about her church and went to church alone (like 3 weeks ago). Elder Williams and I taught them for like the second time because the other elders left and they both went this week! Wow it was a good week but there is still so much more to do here. The Sector is hard because everyone works sooo much and the mornings and early afternoon, there isnt anything. But of well, we just need to keep finding people from the Members and their friends. I imagine that our ward is probably similar. The missionaries might be struggling for lack of people to teach. Help them out! Dont be scared, just tell them about your friends or less actives in the ward that maybe they dont know of! OK family, this is basically what i remember from the week, love you all!
