It's the last week of transfers so it's basically finding week. We need to get some investigators that are progressing so we can baptize them next month. I have a really cool story, stay tuned for later in the show. (This isn't the cool story, it's actually kind of sad. So feel free to feel bad for me) This Friday I woke up pretty weak and sick and so I did what a good missionary ought to do... I worked out and showered and got ready for planning meeting and I went to planning meeting. But this is where it goes wrong and I turned into a bad missionary. I was so sick that I made the mistake of lying down on the somewhat comfy benches.. I had zeroooooo energy so we went back to the Pension (House, for you gringos out there) and I took a little nap due to doctors orders. I tried going out to work that night and had to end up coming home after a couple hours due to sharp pain... blah blah blah ya ya. So turns out I had/have an infection in my intestines or something... All I know is I have lost a couple pounds and couldn't work the past 3 days.. I did go to church yesterday and I think I might have left the Pension Saturday who knows. Luckily for me one of the Elders in the office is a certified doctor so he gave me lots of drugs to make me feel better so hopefully all is well. I probably won't die or anything... Probably... Nah I'll be fine. No worries.
Cool story time. Last Monday we did a zone attack in a little town called Mejillones. It takes us about 20 minutes to walk from the farthest left of the city to the farthest right and about the same from top to bottom. So imagine having 16 mormon missionaries knocking the doors trying to find some new investigators... It was really entertaining to watch hahah. Anyways, we all broke off into little sectors of the city to knock some doors and we got new companions for the day. I was placed with Elder Storey. Elder Storey and I have the same amount of time here in Chile, and we're both Gringos hence we were entrusted in a big responsibility. Turns out Elder Storeys Spanish is coming a little slower for him so I had to do a lot of the talking. About 2 and a half months in Chile and I was speaking to full on Chileans in lessons and in the streets and while touching doors. We found 2 new investigators and taught 3 lessons... Better than some of the Latin companions did... HOOOZAHHH That's right.... I know Spanish hahah JK.... but it really was an amazing experience and I learned so much in those 3 hours. The Lord helps us when we need him the most. All you need to do is ask for the help. I think I can do this. I'm ready to train Elder Sargent. Love you all.
