Hola mi familia!!
Wow, how I just love you guys!!
Alright here it goes
- Went to the temple today. - It was really, really good. I just love feeling the peace there. We can’t get that anywhere else in the world. I love it. And honestly, I felt like I was looking for a lot of answers, and I just realized that I need to focus on how I feel, and I just love the peace. So, PEACE! Seek for it.
- The ward is going a little rough. People are leaving and moving away, also a lot are going on vacations. So, it’s a little challenging. There isn’t really any communication and it’s just not going to hot. We are trying, but it comes to a point where we can’t do everything, and we can’t! But all is well
- We had 45 people at church. Welcome to Chile!
- One of our investigators died. Yet Mauri. It kind of hit us hard. In a matter of 2 weeks he got sick and died. He had 28 years of age and was a really good guy, we only talked with him a couple of times before he got sick and then boom, we go to his house and he is their but in a casket. SO, that was kind of rough, really sad for his family, but we are going to go and try to teach his family and give them hope. It was just kind of shocking, like, whoa, life is truly precious.
- BUT we have a plan. We have the knowledge that we can be with our families together, forever. And it’s something that we have to work towards, we don’t just freely get it. Yet it is such a beautiful promise and plan, and it’s called the plan of salvation. So please, go look it up on mormon.org or go have the missionaries teach it to you, IT WILL CHAGNE YOUR LIFE!!
- I got to do divs (divisions) with one of my kids, Elder Hendrix! Was soo good. So great, really cool to be with him again for a day and yeah, he is an incredible missionary!!
I love the mish. It’s the best. I love God. I love Jesus. I am soo eternally grateful for them. And for all that I have been blessed with.
I invite you guys to go share your testimony. Go preach the gospel. People need YOU, and they are just waiting! SO, GO; ACT!! Love you all
AND here is a sweet email I received from his last companion, Elder Hendrix! Bradley just thinks he is such a great missionary and loved working with him and it was such a great surprise to get this from him!
Dear Sister Carney,
My name is Elder Hendrix and I was your sons former companion. I wanted to email you to tell you how great of a missionary he is and to let you know how grateful I am for him. He was my trainer, so I came into the mission like most new missionaries do with little experience. He made the transition so easy for me from life before the mission to where I am now! Elder Carney is one of the most sincere and caring people I have ever known. His love for the people is something I want to model as a missionary! I have learned so much from him, and wanted to let you know how appreciative I am of him!

- So, we had 23 people at church...yeah, a little rough. BUT hey, things WILL get better! All about faith
- We haven’t really had any success this week, which was a little hard. Everyone here leaves for vacations and people are either drunk or don’t want anything. SO yeah, that’s that!
- ITS SO HOOTTT
- Life is going good! I just love being a missionary!!
- Gave a talk in church, that was fun!
- We cleaned the house deeply today, was needed. Now it is beautiful
- God is good!!
- I am just blessed. Last year was a full year being a missionary, and it has been so crazy all that I have learned!! It flew by too. At some points felt soo slow, and others it just went by soo fast!! But yeah,

‘TWAS A GRAND CHRISTMAS!
WOW. So good to see all of you! You all look so good! It was weird just talking and just being with you guys! I miss it! BUT, all is well!! There is work to be done!
It was a good Christmas. Very simple. Didn’t really have much time to feel the Christmas spirit, but in reality I did. I served. I just love serving, I love helping these people here, and that truly is the Christmas spirit. To love one another, to help our own brothers and sisters, so I did feel it, and I am so grateful for Jesus Christ and to celebrate his birth!
So, that’s about it! So sorry, I kind of don’t have anything else! All is well here!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE, and happy 2017 coming up, CRAZY!!!
