Me voy 2

Me voy. I´m headed to the south this time. The sector is called Neulól or something like that but it´s part of Temuco. I don´t know anything about it but apparently it is very cold and very wet. That’s how I like my winters. Today I have to pack up my stuff, which I’m getting better at, and say goodbye to some people. Tomorrow we have to get up at like 5 to get to Concepción on time. I´m going to miss Lebu a lot, I felt like I wasn´t here for much time but I enjoyed it well.

This week started off well. We found a lot of people, we taught lots of good lessons, and lots of members went with us to appointments. Then Saturday and Sunday all the appointments fell. Every single one. Sometimes that happens. Also, saturday in the night, they assigned us to give talks on Sunday. It was my first time speaking in public in Spanish. It went pretty well but only 40 something people showed up to church.

We have been working with this guy named Miguel. When he was 6 months old, the house burned down with him inside. He was supposed to die but instead he was hospitalized for over 5 years. That is a long time. Now he only has stub fingers on one hand and a thumb on the other and his face is severely scarred. But now he works like crazy to get money for his family. Normally when people work like that, we can never get a hold of them but he always makes time for us. He was so happy when we gave him a Book of Mormon, he could almost not believe it. Him and his 12 year old daughter read it every night. From him, I learned that the people that get most out of life are those who are humble and determined and powered by love. 

Thats it for the week. My mind is too preoccupied by all the stuff I have to do before I leave.

Love you all!
