Hola from Chile 10-20-10

Thank you so much for you letters, seriously your letters are blessings to me in so many wonderful ways. I am glad mam-maw is doing better. I was praying a lot for her and for mom and granddaddy. Homecoming against our old coach, that’s really interesting ha ha. How Henderson doing anyways? Happy late-bday dad!

Well this week was a good one for us. Actually with this week and the two weeks before me and my companion have 18 acts of service! And we are really seeing the fruits of it. One morning we went to clean out the yard of our stake President who was a bit of an angry man at the best of times but after we completely turned around his yard he is now the most loving man that I know. Little acts of love count. Also we are teaching a young man named Carlos and he walks and talks like he is the coolest ladies man ever and then when we got to church and he saw young women he ran out of the building really scared ha ha. He is going to get baptized the 31st of this month. He has 17 years and in two years he going on a mission. Also today we are going to clime a mountain as a zone and have a picnic for lunch. It took lots of hours of planning but it’s worth the suffering for these missionaries. Ill be sure to take copies of pictures from someone to send to you all. But sadly because we are doing this activity I have no more time. But I really would like to leave you with just one thought.

Today we are going to clime a hill and look down on Chile from above. As we look down we will see how beautiful and blessed this country is. Then we will talk about something really important. Just like the gospel, it takes work to clime up the hill but once we get up and look down, the view is so much better. As we live our lives in the gospel sometimes we have to work or make sacrifices, but the view is always better.

Love you and pray for you every week.
