Subject: HELLO

Hello familia! How are all of you?

Soo yeah here it goes

  • today for pday we made sushi, which is really growing here and a lot of people love it, but this time, we MADE it, sooo we’re pretty much Asian 
  • Had interviews with president, was good, not much else to say!
  • We have a BAPTISM this Sunday!! Brandon y Daina, they are little kids but are just angels and their family is less active, all of them (this area has a lot) so hopefully we can see some blessings come from this, and they are so excited!
  • Vanel, he is a Haitian, and he is just the man! He has come to church 2 times now, and he has a baptism date!! I wish I was black..
  • Jehovahs Witnesses contacted our door...awk. They always try to fight with us and I just am soo sick of that! So they gave me a book and I did too, the plan of salvation, and while they were contacting me I was trying to get their address, haha! They got frustrated I think!!
  • We have been doing good, I have just been tired. But still trucking!
That’s about it!! 

Other than that, it’s been good. Life is good! God is good. He is so good. And it’s getting freaking HOT!!

It’s an adventure!! Life is good, just enjoy it. In the small and sjmple things.

Welll Howdy Doo!
Hello family!! and friends, if I still have any!

This is your son/brother/friend elder carney!

This week was good!! Not really sure what happened honestly!! But life is just good!

I am just happy to be alive, just love it! Honestly, that’s about it!

Hmm trying to think!!

We found a lot of new people this week which his really good!! We are really excited, have some really cool potential ones!!

Ohhh Brandon and Dayyna were baptized!! It was soo good!! So special and just awesome! It was elder Hendrixs’ first baptism too and it was really good! Their whole family are less active, and there are more than 20 in total, so we will see if this brings some miracles. 

They were so excited! When they came out of the water Brandon was like, BAKAN!! Which is like AWESOME, DOPE!! haha it was great!!

I am really loving this ward. I love these people. It’s so frustrating at some points, and it feels like nothing functions at all, but I love it. I know that blessings come from it, from very little action. ESPECIALLY obedience. Something so simple. Just be obedient!!

That’s about it fam bam!! I love this gospel, sorry this email is lame!! BUT, GOD LOVES YOU ALL SO MUCH!!

THIS CHURCH IS TRUE!!! It’s not some social club, awesome thing, yet it is awesome. It holds all the keys in order for us to gain salvation, to be in families for eternity. It’s TRUE, its REAL!! Love you all!!

HOLA MIS WASHITOS!! Nov. 2 & 9, 2016

Nov. 9, 2016
Hello my orphans I just told you guys!

How are all of you doing? Good? I hope so! How’s life and all?

So this pasty week was really good! Here it goes

  • SOooo freaking HOT!! I am dying of heat.
  • We went to the temple today, which man. It was just so great!! I love the temple!
  • We have a new rule where we can’t leave the mission, like at all. So, that kind of sucks because it is so small, our mission is really small, and so yeah, BUT whatever floats the boat! Just going to be obedient and that just means a lot of soccer and asados (bbqs) here!
  • We always do contacts, like in the park and houses and all that, and some of them just turn into great stories, really wierd stories too. Here are some experiences from my contacts
  • Talked to a girl who’s work is a pole dancer and gave me her card (awks, not going to call)
  • A lot of people who smoke marijuana and always offer us it, and I just tell them (un otra dia mejor) which means another day maybe>! They get a laugh out of that
  • I one time NAILED my body into a poll because I was walking and talking with people and didn’t look where I was going, THAT was a great laugh! I hope people saw!
  • Just a lot of random, weird things can happen!
  • We had a DOPE lesson. A really powerful one with Frqansico, a less active, he got baptized because the missionaries back then were really cool and good at soccer, then he went inactive. BUT we found him and he just cried with us, you could see that desire, that desire to change, and it’s just really cool to be an instrument in Gods hand.
  • We had 80 people come to church!! So that’s good!!
  • Had divisions with my district leaders, who I saw them be born (a term for when they came into the mission) and was their leader and that was just really cool! SO cool to see not only péople but missionaries and their progression, so awesome! And rewarding!
That’s about it!! We are just working it out here and living it up!!

The temple today was really good, and honestly I went in expecting some answers to my questions and kind of forcing it, but in it I just knew that I don’t need to worry, that everything will work out no matter what, and that I just need to be happy. 

Which is like the key to life. That’s all God wants. That’s all that the plan is. Eternal happiness. Happiness today, in this life, and in the next. SO that was just really good for me, I needed it and so that’s the goal, to just be happy. Life is too Good. Everything will work out

GO TALK TO THE MISSIONARIES: Go open your heart. GO find out what God has in store for you. YOU are part of his plan and he loves you so so much! Just ask him! 

I love you all!!! Besitos y abrazos!!

Happy Halloween from the Mormon missionaries!!

Hello!! How is everyone doing? I hope you are all doing swell!

So, what a week. A lot of things have happened and it’s time for bullet points

  • VALERIA GOT BAPTIZED!!! On Saturday and it was sooo good! Well, not many members showed up, which I was disappointed, BUT it was such a good baptism and was just awesome!! Super good!!! She went from rock bottom to this point and it is just sooo cool to see her faith, and how GOD PREPARES PEOPLE. It is soo true. 
  • It was halloween, we dressed up as jehovas witnesses...nah! But I wanted too. The ward had a dance and man was it hard not to dance and just go crazy. Did I bust some moves, you bettter bet I did! 
  • My eye is going crazy, I got something in it and man it just is really red and hurts like a mother, but hopefully it gets better! 
  • Had divisions with the zone leaders and it was just so good! Went with Elder Jones from Idaho, and he is just the man, it was such a good day, I needed it!!
  • Invitation. GO OUT AND HELP PEOPLE DANGIT. I am sooo sick of people who don’t do crap. Who ask if a person is ok, and don’t do anything. If we really cared, we would go visit, go take time out of your own life and go help!!! So please people, forget about yourselves and go help. People do need you. 
  • It’s just been good! 
  • I have been very tired lately. Really tired, yet I know that even when I feel like I CANT CONTINUE, THAT GOD LIFTS ME UP, HE GIVES ME A LITTLE MIRACLE, OR A LITTLE ENERGY BOOST, AND I JUST NOTICED THIS IS ALL IN CAPS, SUPER SORRY
·        But yeah life is good family! I hope you are all doing well, just trucking along here in Chile!!

·        Love you all soo much! God is GOOD!!
