hey family!!

what a great letter family...thank you guys so much...i could really feel your presence with me as i read it...alot of things happening ae....thats the only way to do things you fellas...keep busy and we´ll be all good....but yeha thanks for the package family i´ll be keeping an eye out for it...cant wait to get the usbs ae...thats the winner ba!!!! LOL but sounds like you guys had a great temple experience....lol i cant imagine dads...i dont knows!!! lol crackup hard...but im so glad that you guys had the opportunity to go thru as a family...ive really missed it ae....out here in the mission we never get to go through so we are so blessed to have one right in our mist...we just need to take advantage of it.....we are so blessed family...i realize it day after day in how much we really have...we have a home, a car, live in a good community, we have the basics, a family the gospel so many things that the lord has blessed us with that so many other people need and are dying for....we need to always give thanks for all that we have.....im so grateful for everything. but hori boy...sole gotta give a spiritual thought??? bro thats crackup bro...im gonna tell you straight up bro..share what you know bro, whats in your heart, what you feel that everyone needs to hear...elder niel anderson, said something that has always helped me here in the mission bro he said, "we dont know everything but we know enough." so true my brother...im a living testament of this bro...im not smart at all, i dont speak the best spanish, i dont even know the scriptures that well but what i DO know bro is enough...i know that our saviour lives, that this is his gospel and its true. came with a testimony and have only stregthened it my brother...but thats the secret bro is that what every you share, speak from your heart about the things that you know to be true....idk if that helps bro...bahahaha sorry bout it....okay well i´ll give you something....a few weeks ago i had an interview with pres. and he told me something bro that i will never for get...so you can use this for your thought....but he said, "the biggest problems for missionaries is that they know what they need to do, but they just dont do it."....very short but very true....as missionaries we tend to fall in to a routine and just go threw the motions at times cuz we do the same thing every single day....and when we do this we dont recieve all the blessings that the lord has for us....you can liken that bro unto anything and everything....unto us as members of the church, and unto dancers there at pcc...the pcc is a great mission tool in helping many of our brothers and sister around the world come to feel of the savior jesus christ...as dancers you guys have a great priviledge EVERY single day in helping these people feel what we feel from living the gosple...but like im sure as for missionaries you guys tend to fall into a routine and end up not doing the things you guys know you should be doing...and when this happens bro you guys dont recieve the fullness of the blessings that the lord has for you there at the center..then you can expound on it with more commentaries or a scripture if you want...i always use this with the members and share 2 nep 31:20 that says that we need to press foward with a steadfastness in christ or mosiah 2:41 that talks about those who hold out faithful are blessed in all things....but yeah bro just talk from your heart cuz if you dont nothing really matters...go hard bro...

but yeah family, ive been good as ae...hahahaha a very hard week but things are coming around lil by little...lol for us were doing alrite...worked hard all week to find somebody...knocked over 400 doors and pretty much got stached 400 times as well bahahaha...hard as week ae...my comp got a rock thrown at him in his back....we looked back and didnt see anybody..we think that somebody threw it from there house window....i was so mad ae dont even know...my comp had to calm me down again bahahaha irritz the chileans some times...but yeah all week we pretty much slogged our guts knocking doors, going over to members house and doing service and painting homes, cutting grass, helping moving homes and all kinds of stuff to show our love for the members to gain there confidience to be able to get some kind of reference but nope...NOBODY...lol crackup how nobody every tells you before the mission that the hardest thing is finding people ae.....but yeah family hard hard hard as week....really working at our faith and pretty much wearing it down....but it wasnt till saturday....okay so in preach my gospel they give you a bunch of ideas on how you can find people right(chapter 9) lol well one of the suggestions that ive used all my mission but really hasnt worked is giving english clases!! lol whod ever think ae....so every saturday for the past six months in the mornings on saturday (the most uneffective hours of the week here) we have been teaching english....and for every saturday for the past 6 months the same people come...lol a few members and other non members who dont want nothing to do with the church but want to learn english...so yeah i pretty much havnt seen any success come from teaching english at all....but this past week as hard as it was we still prepared a class to teach....we went over saturday morning and opened the chapel and got the room ready and we waited....as time passed the same old people had entered so we started our class....right after the prayer a new fella poped in....he said he was from peru....fresh off the plane, saw one of our fliers and came.....my comp continued with the class and i took him a side to see where he was at with his english....he actually knew alot.....understands everything we say but just has a really hard time responding....so what i did is i told him "well....im going to teach you a few things is that cool??? and i´ll ask you a few questions here and there and then at the end we´ll talk about it...." he agreed and i started to teach him about the plan of salvation, he then put alot of attention on what i was then saying....taught him it all in english from our premortal life, to why we are here on the earth, and what will happen after this life...my comp thought it was really funny but what happened is that it was more than just an english exercise....as this man was listening attentive he felt it. despite his lack of knowledge concerning the english language he in that momnet had felt something that he never had felt before....he asked me in broken english...."do you really believe in what you just taught me??" i bore strong testimony and let him know how it is....he told me that hes always had questions about alot of things and really didnt know what to believe in but as he listened to me he felt a sense of peace and tranquilidad??? forgot the word but yeah.....this same guy (hugo is his name) rocked up to church the very next day and stayed there for all three clases....family this is not some thing that happens to often here......when we teach someone....getting them to church on time and getting them to stay for the whole thing is the hardest thing ever....but what i saw in this man is that when you really have a desire....you´ll do anything..was a really great experience for me to help me see that this is gods work....he cares in everything that we do and as we endure strong, give him all that we got he will bless us....he will test us..nothings ever going to be easy but i know that as we do our part, as we knock all the doors that we can, as we talk to as many members possible, and endure well the lord will bless us....might be in the very last moment, maybe the morning right before in english class but he will bless us....its a promise. but im really excited to work with this guy...has alot of questions and is really keen to learn so we´ll see how he progresses....but yeah family im so grateful to be here...its almost a year but ive learnt so many things already and continue to learn each and every day...i love the book of mormon...its what will keep us on the straight and narrow...hold strong to it family and one day we´ll reap the fruits of our labor... i love you guys so much...mum and dad thanks for all that you guys do for me..im so grateful to have had loving parents as you guys....for having raised us in the gosple and given us the knowledge suffiecient enough to be albe to righteously exercise our free agency...for having taught us the things of most importance of this life...i love you guys so much... lia and ash i love you kids so much...dont even know how much i love you guys...i had a lesson with a family the other day whos son went on the mission the same day as me but they have 4 kids two and there son that left was there oldest but the three last ones remind me so much of you lia and ash and george...i always get emotional there with them but just makes me realize how much you guys really mean to me...keep being good kids and examples to those around you....be loving and kind to all....learn as much as you can and put it in practice always....hori boy...sole be a good boy bro...watch over your brother and sister for me... i love you heaps my brother....think about all the time . be a good example bro and share the gosple every chance that you get....but yeha family i love you so much...heres a few videos...and a pic...send my love to grandma k...and the rest of the family but i love you all so much..con muchisimo amor,
