On Tuesday we had a conference with Presidente Harris. The conference was about 7 hours (with lunch) and for 4 HOURS STRAIGHT President talked about repentence. And you know what? I wasn't even bored. I think repentence has become one of my favorite topics here in the mission. I love teaching it and I love studying it. I feel like the more I study it, the more I realize how much more there is to study and learn!
So last Sunday the elders invited a guy from the street to come to church and, suprisingly, he came. His name is Nesley and he is from Haiti and he is awesome. He only has 3 months here in Chile but he lived in the Dominican Republic for a while so he knows a little Spanish. We set an appointment to teach him in the Church this Friday and he showed up with 3 friends he lives with- all from Haiti and all with very limitted spanish! We weren't sure if they wanted to learn Spanish or the Gospel, so we went with both and taught them to pray in Spanish. Looks like from now on we will be teaching Spanish classes every Monday morning hahaha.
(Funny story: We asked Nesley how he learned spanish so fast here and he told us that he learned in the Dominican Republic. He said "There they say "si" and here they say "si po" so it's not all that different." We about died laughing. I dont know if you guys knew that but here everyone says "po" after everything. It doesn't mean anything, it just gives it emphasis and has become a very basic part of my vocabulary.)
This Saturday there are cambios... I dont think I'm going to change. Let's pray that I don't!! Things are going great in my sector and Im very happy and humbled for having the opportunity to serve here in Chile :)
