Dear Friends and Family :)

This week was busy. We had 2 emergency transfers so on Monday the assistants called us and said that tomorrow we had to be in the office at 9:30 am to receive a new elder to work in a trio for the rest of the change. Wednesday, the next day, President called us to tell us that we needed to be in the mission home at 12:15 pm to leave our new companion with another elder whose companion had to rest for 15 days after a surgery.
Also this week I had to do 3 baptismal interviews in Limache which is an area in my district that's 45 minutes away. That was a lot of traveling, traveling to and from Limache 3 times and to and from Viña 2 times. We didn't have the best week number wise but Limache is having lots of Success.

This week we also had interviews with President Kähnlein. In my interview he said he didn´t know if he was going to put us back into a trio later in the change or what he was going to do with a few heath problems so thats up in the air.

This morning I finished reading the Book of Mormon for the 2nd time in Spanish. It's still true just so you all know :). I prayed and didn't feel anything... a little unsettled I started reviewing the requirements in Moroni 10:4 to receive an answer and I felt like I fulfilled the requirements so I was a little more unsettled. Then what I´m sure was the spirit prompted me to review my Book of Mormon and read all the notes that I had written in the margins of the book over the course of the three months which I read it. After I had done that I felt like I should pray again and then I received the calm assurance yet again that the Book of Mormon is true. I had forgotten to meditate on what was said. I had so foolishly forgotten Moroni 10:3. You would think after 2 years of extending that invitation I would learn something :P But as Elder Boss says, it was "Amature Hour" :P Many times we skip or forget the basics of the gospel but the basics are the foundation. And the Book of Mormon is the cornerstone. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. With that simple fact I can guide my life.

Diego is doing great! this week he went to institute and the weakly elders quorum activity and then on Friday we had a lesson with him to set goals to be able to keep progressing. He got confirmed this week too!

I already had my temple recommend interview with President Kähnlein, so yes, it is current but he made to so that it only lasts until October. I would love to go to the temple with you guys :)

Love you Mother!

All is well :)

P.S. Did you look into the scholarship stuff for this year? For the returned missionary? I have to reapply for the scholarship from BYU.
