CRISTOBAL GOT BAPTIZED ON SATURDAY AND CONFIRMED ON SUNDAY!!! WE HAD SOME STRUGGLES GETTING THE BAPTISM GOING SINCE THERE WAS NO WATER AND WE HAD TO RUN OVER TO ANOTHER CHURCH TO USE THEIR FONT.....WE FILLED UP THE BAPTISMAL FONT WITH THE FIRE HOSE....THE WATER WAS SUPER COLD BUT CRISTOBAL WAS JUST WAY TO STOKED TO EVEN NOTICE IT!!!! THIS KID IS SUPER MATURE, HIS TESTIMONY IS SUPER STRONG AND IT MAKES ME HAPPY TO SEE THAT HIS PARENTS TRUSTED HIM IN TAKING SUCH A BIG DECISION! ELDER WORKMAN AND WILDE WHERE THERE AT THE BAPTISM CAUSE THIS WAS A SPECIAL BAPTISM IN MY MISSION, WITH CRISTOBALS BAPTISM I REACHED MY MISSION BAPTISMAL GOAL I HAD SET MYSELF BEFORE STARTING THE MISSION, OBVIOUSLY IAM GONNA KEEP WORKING HARD I BUMPED UP THE GOAL A LIL BIT MORE AND IAM GONNA KEEP WORKING HARD TO REACH THE NEW GOAL!!!

once every month and a half the zone leaders in the mission meet up with the president and the asistants to talk about the new goals we are going to set up for the mission and also to reach some compromise to improve our work as missionaries and help more sons and daughters of God. we usually order pizza afterwards but last time president took us to a peruvian restaurant!!! it was FREAKING GOOD!!! we liked it so much that president even said we will go there next time!!! hahaha anyway i took a pic just to remember the people around me, elder workman is leaving this cambio and he is in this picture. we where comps and thinking about him leaving the mission is something crazy!! soon ill follow him.............its scary to think we have to leave this beautiful country!!!

You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember only that he is gone,
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what he'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

FABIAN IS A LESS ACTIVE WE REACTIVATED, IF YOU HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THE BLOG YOU KNOW WE FOUND HIM AFTER 29 SOME YEARS INACTIVE AND WE WORKED WITH HIM UNTILL HE GOT HIS PRIESTHOOD AND IS FULLY ACTIVE IN THE CHURCH. THE SAME DAY HE GOT THE PRIESTHOOD HE BAPTIZED HIS SON FABIAN, BUT THAT WASNT ENOUGH HE WANTS HIS WHOLE FAM TO BE BLESSED, SOON AFTER WE STARTED TO WORK WITH HIS NEPHEWS AND YESTERDAY HE GOT THE PRIVILAGE AND I GOT ALSO THE PRIVILAGE TO SEE HIM BAPTIZE THEM. ITS SO AWESOME TO SEE HIS CHANGE CAUSE HE USUALLY GOES TO CHURCH WITH JEANS AND A SHIRT, BUT TODAY HE WENT ON A FULL SUIT!!!!! HE LOOKED GOOD!!! WAY CLEAN!!! IAM STOKED AT THE BAPTISM HE BORE HIS TESTIMONY, AND ITS SO STRONG.....EVERYTIME HE TALKS ABOUT THE CHURCH HE CRIES AND THE SPIRIT IS SO STRONG AROUND HIM. I LOVE IT. I AM GRATEFUL FOR BEING HERE AND KNOWING IAM PUTTING ALL MY EFFORTS WITH THIS PEOPLE. I LOVE CHILE I LOVE THE PEOPLE.....I HAVE SACRIFICED MUCH TO BE HERE BUT I DONT REGRET IT, I KNOW EVERY SECOND IAM HERE IS WELL WORTH IT.
