Hey Family!

Hey Family!
This week was sooooo busy!
We did a ton of stuff!
We taught a zone training to the whole zone of about 20 misisonaries and it was the climax of Elder Adair an I`s companionship. We nailed it and it was so smooth and very spiritual. We sent everyone on a scavenger hunt for part of it and it was really fun, really successful and of course we all learned a ton!

I went on divisones with a good Elder buddy of mine, Elder West. We had tons of fun, and it is always cool to see how much you have learned with your companion with you split uo and work with another Elder.
We met some friends in the Lider(Walmart) here and they invited us to their wedding. They are jewish and we went to their legal wedding. Their family was so nice and really welcomed us in as part of the family and we didnt even know them! Great people! It was cool to see a bunch of religions join together to celebrate something we all know is very important: Marriage. They believe alot in the original hebrew language. Yahshwa is how you say Jesus Christ in Hebrew which would be his original name! Pretty cool!
Later that day we met a guy who took us up to the local catholic chapel and gave us a tour and we learned alot about the catholic relgion. It was a pretty awesome day (:
One day we werent having much success, and we were being like the children of Israel again. We decided to say a prayer and we found an AWESOME less active member named Felix. He was baptized years ago. We entered into his house, and sat him down. He had 2 questions. 1. How did we find him and 2. What do we expect from him. We said that God had managed to put us in his path because we didnt know he lived in the random house we contacted. We then continued to describe what we expected from him. We told him he would stop smoking now, that he would stop drinking, and that he would become a faithful member of the church and recieve a calling. He agreed. We then invited him to a big family home evening that we were having in the house of a member. Without excuses, he put on his sunglasses and we rolled over to the family home evening on a tricicle. He came to church on sunday and is ready to go. AWESOME guy! We taught him "I will never go back," in english.
Well my companion and I will be splittling up tomorrow. I will be with my new comp here in my same sector of Independencia, Talca with Elder Spriggs.
I love you all.
We cannot do this work alone.

Grandma sent me this aweosme quote this week:

"The great test of life is obedience to God. The great task of life is to learn the will of the Lord and then do it. The great commandment of life is, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind and with all thy strength."

Elder McGee
