Hey yall!!!
Well its been an exciting and eventful week forsure! 
So right now i am in Osorno, that is my new sector.... no longer in valdivia! So now i am actually in the Office and i am the nuevo historiador! So thats pretty sweet, its pretty funny cause just last week my grandpa was writing me and telling me that he is sure one day i will be in the office and be able to drive the car and all that, hahaha well that happened. So the office life is a little different and its pretty sweet, i get to see the mission from a whole different aspect, while still being a missionary and doing what missionaries do!
So we get into the office at like 10 and what i do is i am the historian so i handle all the stuff with the registros of baptisms of people and put them into the sytem so they become members ( pretty big job if ya think about it cause thats the reason we are here, to share this gosepl about Jesus Christ with others and get them baptized on the path to eternal life) So it is pretty sweet. Along with that i do a lot of different random stuff, but i handle a lot of stuff with new missionaries that are coming in and missionaries that are leaving! Its way fun and way weird, weird to think i have almost 7 months in the mission and it just feels like yesterday i was in that position! 
So we get in at 10 and we do all our stuff and then we end the day and leave at 6 and we proselite from 6 to like 10! so we have some pretty cool investigators here that we have put with dates to be baptized which is way awesome! One is a younger girl and her dad is reactivating and shes gonna get baptized in febrero, Also another is a sweet family. We went over the baptismal interview with them and they are awesome, they know a lot and really want to learn more and have this gospel in their lives, they love having us over and they keep feeling closer to the savior everytime we visit with them! So we shall see!
Also i have two new comps, i am in a trio right now until end of the cambio with Elder Diaz who is from mexico and Elder Haddad who is from pleasanton ( if any of yall know me then you know that city should ring a bell;)) Its pretty fun, also both of them are converts of not too long ago, so it is really cool and is a testimony strengthener to me! I think its so awesome when converts go on missions its sweeeeetttt!! They have such powerful testimonies!
We live in this apartment that is like a penthouse and is probably one of the nicest houses in the mission, you can see the whole city of osorno and it has carpet! I havent felt what carpet is like in 7 months
But everything is good here, i am enjoying it and we are working hard! There is always a lot to do! I love sharing this gosepl with others and being able to feel that spirit so strong, nothing is better than that! I remmeebr thoe days in priest quorum with some of my best buds and dahl and all the awesome leaders, the spirit was so strong! Thats how it is in lessons now and thats what i strive for, cause i can promise you! There is no better feeling than that, I have won a state championship and hit game winners and all that stuff for bball and that stuff feels so good, but this there is nothing like that..... When you see someone who needs and wants the gosepl in their life and you can feel that spirit in the room, where it is almost tangible to the point where you can touch it, nothing in the world beats that! If you wanna feel that, This gosepl can make you feel that an more! 
I love what i am doing and i love being in chile! Livin the high life in the penthouse with carpet right now baby! hahaha love you all! Hope youre all doing well and ya keep on keeping on!!!
Much love!
