Hey family!
We have pday every 6th week in the change, yes we are about to have changes mom but i dont know whats going to happen. We cant go to the temple anymore for problems with the clothes and they are trying to figure it out with the temple president to see if we can go in the future but today we went to a museum in Downtown about Chilean History, it was pretty interesting! 
This week we were finishing everything up with Gerardo for his baptism and we met his mom and family (we previously taught in the church) and she is really nice! He asked him mom if he could bring his little brother to church with him in the future and she said yes and then we told him that he can be the one to baptise his own brother when the time comes. Hes such a good kid, and he wants to serve a mission so bad. It was cool cause when we taught him that he could be a missionary in like a year more, i told him that a good friend (Isaac) had a similiar story and that very day Isaac was going on his mission! We had the interview on Saturday and then we played basketball a little with him and the Bishops family and another guy. And my comp ripped his pants haha. Gerardo is legit at b ball and not even that many people play here so its pretty interesting. 
We did a ton of service this week and it was so fun. One day we were unloading a truck that was full of cabbage and we were cuting and cleaning the cabbage. Another day we were demolishing a house haha good stress reliever for anyone! We its awesome doing service cause we can help people, have fun, and get their confidance. Now in my mission i realize i just need to be myself, have fun, truly love each and every person and teach them the things that are going to help them. Thats what the gospel and this life is all about. I gave a talk in sacrament meeting about the missionary work of the members and i hope the members understood a little better how important they are in our success. All the baptisms ive had are from families that not everyone was a member or a reference from a member. I love you guys and miss you but i love the mission and im going to enjoy it for another 7 months. Thanks for the prayers and letters!
Love Elder Farnsworth

A few questions from his Dad:

 What do you do on Preparation Day? 
Here in our mission, there isnt much to do on P Day, but what me and my companion always do is go to the Centro and buy Peruvian food which is like the best in the world. So that would be one thing and the other Id have to say is climb some of the hills that are here in the city.

  And, beside baptisms, what is the best part about being a missionary?
And the best part of being a missionary besides a baptism is actually what happens before the baptism: when the people tell you that they know the gospel is true and they want to come closer to Christ. That is the best feeling ive had in my life. The happiest thing i have even felt.

The museum we saw today and a lot of the youth supporting Gerardo. The bishop baptised him!
