This week was LOCA! we had sooooooooooooooooo much to do and no time to do it. We had lessons scheduled every single hour and were running from place to place. We found a lot of new people and were able to see good progress in a lot of others.
These last weeks we have seen major changes in Solange and Jaime. We have been working a LOT with Jaime to help him change a few things and HE HASN'T SMOKED IN 2 WEEKS!!! It is a huge miracle, we can literally see the atonement working through him. He has so much desire to learn and change and is so humble. He is also listening to the Book of Mormon and praying every day :) And the whole family of 5 came to church yesterday! They are so golden and so prepared, now we just need to help them get married so they can be baptized.
One interesting thing that happened with Solange this week is that she was trying to get a new house and she had everything lined up and had been working on it for months but then, for some reason, it fell through this week. When we heard we thought she was going to be distraught, but when we got to her house she said "Well, this probably just means God has something better waiting for me. And it probably means I need to get married and be baptized here in this ward first and then go look for my house." It's amazing to see how sometimes things dont work out how we want, but if we let them work out how our Heavenly Father wants we will always be happy in the end.
Another great investigator is Jose. He is 17 and from Colombia and is awesome. He went to church this week for the second time and he really liked it. He understands really fast and has a strong desire to learn (he had never heard of the "mormon church" before coming to chile!). He actually accepted a baptismal date for June 17 BUT he talked to his Dad and his Dad said no... we were all pretty sad about that but Jose said his dad said he could keep listening and going to church and maybe he will change his mind if he sees that Jose really wants to do this. So please pray for him lots!
Other things that happened this week:
Thursday we had a Zone Conference (I had to speak and, side note, still hate public speaking).
Saturday we traveled 2 hours to a little town called Licanten and helped out there.
Saturday I also completed 16 months in the mission. Ew.
Last night my comp and I drew on the other missionaries faces while they were sleeping.
Life is great. I love the mission. I love you all. See ya soon!
