Last Conference

This week we had our last conference together as "the office team." We still have one more week before transfers but we are starting to point out the lasts. The conference was in Angol and was for only Hermanas. Angol at this time is super hot so it was a nice welcoming into summer.

We met a family of 3 this week that seemed pretty cool. We went back to teach them and it turned out to be one of the more interesting lessons of my mission. They loved talking about God and all that stuff but whenever we got personal to them or even mentioned that they would have to do something they just shut down. We talked it out and they are 100% set on not doing anything ever. One of them is 25 and she said that she once looked for work but she rather "live in the house with  her moms retirement money until she dies." No matter how we went about it, we could not find any speck of motivation in them. They just eat and watch TV and every once in a while go to the bank to pick up their money and they acknowledge it with complete contemptness. They were some of the saddest people I have ever seen, however they were very inspiring to me. If you want to be happy, do the exact opposite of what they are doing. 

On the bright side, our progressing investigators are just as awesome as ever. At least two of them are coming to church with us tomorrow.

We saw an older lady and her 15 year old son with a bunch of heavy bags so we asked to help and ended up helping them move. We came back the next day to finish the job and the boy kept asking about what he has to do to be a missionary. His mom then asked the same question so we talked about baptism and they got pretty excited. I´m becoming a fan of miracles.

For pday today we did a service project cleaning someones backyard. I´m not the best shoveler but I have to say that afterwards it looked good.

Alright, that´s it. Love you all!
