Week 13 (August 31)

This week was awesome. It was the first week of a new cambio and me and my comp Hermana Rich made a bunch of new goals that are going to help a ton.

One thing that we are going to start doing is study one Christ like attribute every week and apply it to our lives here on the mish. Last week we studied and worked on Faith in Jesus Christ. It really is awesome to see miracles happen and we always find awesome people when we have the faith.

I was reading a talk about change a few days ago and basically how change is the purpose and central blessing in this life. We were put on this earth to grow and change for the better. Changing for the better is progressing. First though, we need the faith to change and to progress. It is AWESOME to see people here change little by little and to watch their faith grow little by little. 

We couldn’t find a lot of our awesome investigators last week but we just kept praying and having the faith to find them and sure enough we found them!!!!!                
Ahhh I just love being here in Chile and I love talking to people about this gospel every day. 

Funny story for the week

So we were eating lunch at a members and they always give us fruit for dessert right. They decided to give us canned cherries and my comp decided to pull a prank on me. she told me when the mom went up to grab something in the kitchen that they swallow the cherry pits here and they think it is the rudest thing to see you spit them out. So I just kept all the cherry pits in my mouth for a good while. Dang it. One mouthful of cherry pits later....I was about to swallow and my comp yelled noooo!! I was joking!!


Love you Allllll!!

Keep having faith in every aspect of your lives.
And this week have hope.

Oh yeah I realized this week I have been telling everyone here that I love their greasy hair instead of me loving their thick hair....dang it.                                                                                                                                                         

Cool experience with faith.

So I have a really hard time having confidence with my Spanish and that is obviously bad faith. So I decided to change my mindset this week. 

In one of our lessons I understood everything and somehow everything I said just came out right wahhooooo and I went on my first intercambio with a Latina and I understood everything...I think. But yeah I now have a way stronger testimony of confidence and faith. Goes hand in hand.

Week 12 (August 24)

When your family doesn´t even email you...thanks brothers for coming in clutch with the pictures and all!!

For the record we did email her but it didn’t go through on our end hope she received it after this email).

Well this week was a little hard to be honest. We had tons and tons of miracles in the beginning of the week but most of the citas fell through this weekend. But! That didn´t discourage us obviously.

We did have some milagros this week! sorry i forgot how to spell the english word of milagros but we found this guy. Awesome guy named Sergio. We found out he was actually menos activo for 45 years. What??? He still remembered the 4 principles of the gospel! And we invited him to church and then asked if he needed anything else and he looked at us and told us just by inviting him we have done enough. it was such a sweet moment! He came to church!!! Yay!!!!

I is one of the coolest things to see menos activos get reactivated.

I want to share a quote with all of you this week. My comp Hermana rich has it hanging on her wall so I read it every morning! Anyways i don’t know how to do quotes on here.


I think i learned the most this week than any other week. I love this gospel and am SO thankful for it. Love it and live by it. Always.

An Hermana in Chile loves you all very much!! xoxo

Week 11 (August 17)


Lots happened this week. A ton of weird things but it was overall a super good week. The family sounds so awesome! Tell Courtney and Reed to send me more pictures of Everyly and Sadie. My tooth feels fine I haven’t gone to the dentist yet....but soon! Just no time!

Here are some of the answers to Brenties questions...

-my companion, Hermana Rich not Hermana Herrimin.....did you stalk her to find out where she lives? hahahha is awesome at Spanish and she has a cool way of making people feel instantly connected to her. I love it. People tell her that she sounds Chilean all the time. 
  • our district has 8 people in it but ill only be with them for another week because the Cambio is already over. I get to be with Hermana rich for another Cambio because she is my trainer and I get to be wither her for 12 weeks wooo!! My district and zone are awesome though.
  • people have gates on all of their houses so we yell alo! outside. 
  • when it rains yes we still tract haha I think it is super fun. If we have our umbrellas and we always find miracles in the rain
  • the lunches here are the only meal we eat basically so we leave at 11:30 to go work and have lunch from 1:30-3 and then work until 9:30
  • there are SO MANY LESS ACTIVES HERE it’s really sad but kind of crazy. I just found out that there are 950 people in our ward and only about 90 come every week. Actually 1 out of every 30 people in Chile are members. So we find one about every day at least.
  • we email at a small internet cyber

Okay so this week lots of miracles. We made the goal to challenge someone to baptism every day this week and we did it. Nobody accepted so it was kind of sad but on Sunday after our church we had a cita with this girl that we contacted name Viviana a few days before. She is gold. The lesson was so spiritual and she was crying. Her daughter is 11 and they just moved to Angol. She is divorced and was baptized into the Catholic Church but she said she didn’t feel like she got baptized because of her own will or her own choice and she said that if she got baptized again then she would want it to be for her own self to follow Christ. She then accepted a baptismal date along with her daughter and it was awesome! she seems straight gold so we will see what happens. Pray for Viviana and Mariaignacia.

We also have been showing this Mormon message video after our lunches with members and it is the one about the book of Mormon so look it up and watch it. So good. it’s the black guy who was a bishop and is living in London. After the members always give us a reference so woo!

I had to give a talk in sacrament meeting and I know it helped my confidence with Spanish a ton. So that was a blessing.

None of the people I live with are Chilean’s but from Argentina. Chilean Spanish is just super-fast and they drop all of their s. and they add po in between lots of words. But I am understanding more and more every day!
We went to Victoria this week to do an attkai super pretty. It is by a bunch of volcanoes and we found this milagro lady but she isn’t in our sector so I don’t know what will happen with her.
Love you guys so much!!!!

This dude was driving us home to our house and I asked him what this box was in front of his speedometer and he said sushi and then I asked him if he liked sushi and he didn't even answer me he just replied do you guys have time? and my comp said only a few minutes so he then took us on a sushi adventure and then he took us on a tour of some houses of nuns and then asked us to take a picture of him. The weirdest things happen everyday here THE weirdest. 

The Hermanas that I live with and Hermana Riiiich!!!!

Week 10 (August 10)

This week was another great week! I don’t even know where to start. First I will answer your questions dad and Brent! so we are teaching three families right now and yes they are all married dad! Which is so awesome. they didn’t come to church though so technically they are not progressing but we have some good plans to get them to come this next week here.

We had a ton of awesome lessons this week but also a lot of our citas fell through. And it seemed like a ton of the people we contacted were less active. A ton a ton of them. So we told them all to come back to church obviously! And guess what. Even though none of our investigators showed up to church, every menos activo that we invited back to church came!!! How cool is that! Some of them cried because they were so happy to see some old friends and it was so so cool.

We had a thing called return and report this week so we had to travel to conce to the mission home. Basically we had to tell them how things were going with our trainers and how our progress is coming along. AH we got a jar of peanut butter. Haven’t had that in a while! 

Oh yeah on our way to conce our big bio bio bus got into a bad accident with the little micro bus. Slid in the rain whoops but we are fine! We survived a bus crash wahoooo!

What else happened this rained every day. It is so sunny when we go out so we don’t bring our umbrellas and then Chile just tricks us and pours. cmon Chile!

Thanks for all of the prayers. Congrats to Jessica!!! Tell her that from me okay? And fun in Oak Creek! I can’t wait to go back there. i love you all so so much! 

Love your fave hermana in Chile,

Week 9 (August 3)

Sooo this week was super awesome as always. I keep having to remind myself that I am in Chile. I will be walking and then all of the sudden think ¨whoa I am in Chile on a mission!  You guys sound like you are doing great! Mom you will be awesome at that new calling. I have complete faith in you :) also, congrats to Lola and Teddy! Send me pictures of the pups. One of the members here has a puppy and it is the cutest thing. I love hearing all the updates! I print out your emails every week!

Send me more pictures please!!

So victor isn’t in my sector and I don’t get to teach him but he is progressing! Heartbreaker with Carmen. A few of our appointments fell through and then we called Carmen and she told us to never come back. We were super bummed and so we decided to hit some houses and find someone awesome. My companion and I looked at each other and said yes that house. We knocked and the woman said come in! So we went in the gate to her door and she said come in! A family! Who is married!!! That never happens in Chile. They are a miracle family and we get to teach them again today. So the Lord has a plan in everything that is for sure. We found SO many great people this week. Our week didn’t go how we planned but it turned out better.

Another miracle married fam. We were working with a member girl who wants to go on a mission and all of our citas fell through. So we were in the street and we played the color game! Everyone said a color at once. I said red and gabby (the member) said blue. We looked over and the house was red and blue so we had to knock it obviously. The mom came out and was wearing a red sweater and invited us in. the dad was wearing a blue sweater! And the little boy was wearing a red and blue sweater, haha so cool right? In the middle of our lesson the boy’s eyes went all puffy because he had an allergic reaction (#Satan). But we are going back today! 
Another story. We traveled to Los Angles this week to the doctors and the doctor asked me why I was here. I started telling him how the gospel had blessed my life hahaha  dangit. It got super awkward and he was like no for the doctors. Good times. 

I decided that one of my biggest struggle here is the huge lunches. I have to say a prayer to myself every day that I will be able to finish the lunches. ahh. 

Dad for your questions the Spanish is coming along! I am understanding a lot more. It is just hard because they don’t speak Spanish here. Solo Chilean. But the gift of tongues is real.

My shoes are great. I wear the black ones a lot but usually just my rain boots because it rains every day.
James dyer is in my zone and actually sitting right behind me! haha he is cool! He is happy you found his blog.
I love you guys so much! I am blessed with the best family in the whole entire world. I pray for you all every day. Stay awesome
