This week the coolest thing happened. There is this old investigator from like 2 years ago that we have talked to a few times named Daniela. She is 23 and has a baby of 2. She received the missionaries before but wasn't baptized and then she lost contact with the missionaries. Well we found her like 3 months ago and taught her once. We invited her to be baptized and she said no. Since then we have passed by like 20 times but she is sometimes not there and is sometimes unable to attend us. The thing is she doesn't have a cell phone (who doesn't have a cell phone these days?!) so its HARD to get in contact with her. But she did come to church a few weeks ago when we invited her. Finally we managed to pass by and visit her one morning when she was there. We talked to her for a while and she told us "You know what? Your persistence has paid off. I finally got my answer in your church the other day and I want to be baptized. When can i be baptized?" My companion about died from joy. And me too a little. It was such a miracle! So we are now planning her baptism for 25 of December. It should be good :)

As a mission we have had the goal to give 2 Books of Mormon out every day. I'll admit, sometimes its hard. We don't always manage to do it. But we try to do it every day we can and we are honestly seeing MIRACLES. Its crazy to see how many people are willing to accept the book and learn more. I absolutely love the book of Mormon and know that it can and will change these peoples lives more than anything else.

This Sunday no investigators came to church which was a little bit of a downer BUT we did have a ton of less actives come! (side note: Chile has more menos activos than about any other place in the world. Its crazy how many you can find by just contacting.) I like working with less active members because they already have their testimony, you just have to help them remember it... and help them remember that the gospel is more important than members that might have  offended them haha.

Anyways we are working like crazy here to pick up our sector! Also I think it was Thanksgiving or something this past week so just want to let you all know that Im super thankful for you and for your support! Les quiero!
