May 26th, 2014
This week we had our transfer meeting on Wednesday! All the missionaries met in the mission offices and we watched some vidoes about the missionaries that left the mission in the last transfer and listened to the testimonies of the missionaries that left on Wednesday. After that there was a slide show of all the assignments and everything. That part is pretty fun because all the missionaries get super excited and cheer and everything. It´s fun!
The Weather has been on the decline this past week and month. It is really cold during the nights but I use 3-4 blankets/comforters so I am nice and warm. It also rained pretty hard Tuesday and Wednesday. Right now there are clear skies and lots of sun, but it still is pretty cold.
My new companion is Elder Flores. He is from Arica, Chile and has a little more than a year in the mission. He spent the last couple of transfers in the campo in Chacabuco where the areas are huge and it´s basically farmland. He is still getting used to the city life and walking A LOT. He is so awesome and super excited to be working with me in our area and baptizing many people. We have high hopes for 2 or 3 people to be baptized in the month of June!
We had an answer to our prayers this week. As a companionship and a zone, we have been praying for a family to teach that does not have problems with the Word of Wisdom or the Law of Chastity and on Tuesday we found a very good family! Their only "problem" is that they go to a different church, so we taught the restoration and bore strong testimonies about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. They want to attend our church possibly this week and they also want us to attend their church in a sort of exchange. We might go, but I wonder how it will go...
I hope everything is going well with you all!
Les Amo! Elder Giles
