LAST SUNDAY WE HAD ALEJANDRA´S BAPTISM, IT WAS GREAT! SHE GOT BAPTIZED IN 3 WEEKS, HER LEARNING PROCESS WAS SUPER FAST! HER DESIRES TO KNOW THE TRUTH. SHE HAS STARTED TO READ THE BOOK OF MORMON 3 WEEKS AGO AND IS ALREADY IN ALMA 40 (LAST TIME I CHECKED THAT WAS A WEEK AGO) SHE UNDERSTANDS THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF PERSEVERING TO THE END AND THAT MAKES ME AND ELDER WILDE VERY HAPPY AND ALSO SECURE THAT SHE WILL ENDURE TO THE END! WE ARE WORKING WITH THE REST OF HER FAMILY, HER HUSBAND EDUARDO, AND HER SON CHRISTIAN! BEINGA ROUND ALEJANDRA IS AWESOME BECAUSE SHE UNDERSTANDS SO WELL WHEN SHE FEELS THE SPIRIT AND SHE POINTS IT OUT TO YOU....AND IF YOU HAVE BEEN A MISSIONARY THERE IS NOTHING GREATER THAN THAT! HER TESTIMONY DURING HER SERVICE WAS AMAZING! SHE PRETTY MUCH ASKED FOR A CALLING HAHAHA, BEFORE I LEAVE I WANT TO MAKE SURE SHE IS WELL STRENGTHENED AND UNDERSTANDS THE GOSPEL VERY WELL.

Tuesday afternoon we went to the airport to receive president and hermana Humphrey!!! it has been a very very very busy week, my comp and i have only been able to be in our sector for like 8 hours total!! we had conference and also we are to meet with president to figure out a new system the church is introducing in the missions all around the world! President and hermana Humphrey are so amazing!!! i can just feel the spirit they bring to this mission so strong! presidente is a very happy man and gets along real well with all the elders and has great gospel knowledge and has lived many experiences in his life that make him very ready for this calling! his wife is just full of love!!! she is amazing, there is no other way of putting it! the first thing she did as she came was ask about the missionaries and right away started to worry about their health and everything else! they will do a good job and i can honestly feel we are going to see the miracle of 150 baptisms per month real soon with president Humphrey! he was called here for a reason and every time i hear him speak i can feel it so strong!!! iam very happy to be able to serve with them my last two cambios here in the mission!!!
On Wednesday morning we dropped off president Chavez and hna. Chavez at the airport! their call is done and they are back in santiago being normal people! i will forever remember president Chavez! he taught me how to be be diligent and to always be the best for me and for nobody else! iam deeply grateful because while he was my president he helped me so much to understand a lil bit more of the atonement of my savior Jesuschrist! here are the last pictures of us at the airport!
