News From Elder Fischer


Sorry I don’t have time to write a real letter today because these computers slow and I have to be going soon.

The work is going well. Don’t worry I will definitely talk about baptisms when they come. We are going to have 2 in two weeks. It’s a little different here in Chile cause they have to go to church 3 times and things like that.

Sooooo I haven’t bought a camera yet because there is not any money on my account. Also I went to the doctors this week, well Elder Dunshee made me, cause I got two bad ingrown toenails that I am dealing with. Don’t worry they are getting better cause I am pretty much a pro. lol I didn’t want to go in and waste a day but Elder Dunshee convinced me that it was better for the work in the long run. The only bad thing is I had to buy meds and now I have to buy new exercise shoes. They said that was one of the main reasons - cause my shoes are way to narrow at the end for my feet. So I will need money for those as well. I guess this is going to be the "money times" of my mission.

Love you all!

About the work:

Ok so it’s not so much a story as it is a revelation that I figured out about my service here in this ward. There is no youth program in this ward because there are no youth. Not one. So out of all my baptisms all except one is a teenager. I guess I just relate to them well. Right now we are teaching a lot of youth and 2 are going to be baptized si o si in two weeks with many more to follow. It just feels really good to see that I really am helping this area grow.

Thank you all for your letters! I will respond next week!

This week has been good. We have a few people that are progressing towards baptism. This Area President told me is one of the hardest time of year because everyone has money and everyone goes on vacations and we have really seen that. lol there were barely more than 50 people in sacrament meeting this Sunday and the average attendance is 115. lol but its all good. You know we be baptizin!

lol mom you are crazy if you thought I was going to stay off my ingrown toenails for anytime whatsoever. They are improving but I got some work to do lol. I bought my camera. I am going to buy the shoes today I think. I don’t know how much I have on my account for them though I will see today.

Yes we celebrate Valentines day in Chile! lol I don’t really know what they do but all I know is I will be working lol. Yeah I got you Dear Elder package. lol I got it 1 week before Christmas with all my thanksgiving food. lol it was funny. No problem though.

Good to hear Fitz is improving. Sometimes I wish I was there to do a little missionary work with his family and friends. I really hope and pray everything will workout for him.

I am so jealous of the snow! What is this? I leave and all of a sudden it starts snowing! lol it makes me think of snowball fights and stuff. Especially since it’s so freaking hot!


The average runner sprints
Until the breath in him is gone,
But the champion has the iron will,
That makes him carry on.

For rest, the average runner begs,
When limp his muscles grow,
But the champion runs on lean legs
His spirit makes him go.

The average mans complacent
When he does his best to score,
But the champion does his best
And then he does a little more.

Keep it real, love you all. Remember we are all children of our Heavenly Father and He loves us so very much. He loves us so much that He is willing to help us out in our lives. All we have to do is ask and try our best, and then, when we have done all we can, He gives us the strength to "do a little more".
