well Chile is good :) this tuesday we had a mission conference and Elder Kevin R duncan of the 70 came and taught us sone really great stuff. He said that the Lord doesnt see us how we are, but how we can become, and A lot about the Book of Mormon and how important it is the conversion of people. He said that they did a study and found out that like 1 of every 6 recent converts goes inactive within a few years, but of all the ones that were still active, 85% of them had a strong testimony of the B.O.M.  So we`ve been doing a lot of reading together with our investigators, and its working pretty well. Speaking of wich, we had a baptism this weekend :) a guy named Julian who is the son of a protestant pastor, so all the people of that church wanted him to be their next pastor, cuz they have a family run church leadership there, but he never got baptised there and we started sharing with his family that were all less active members, and now hes a member and almost his whole family is activated again. so that was a cool expereince :)
the only kind of funny thing that happened this week was this hole-in-the-wall shoe store where we went shoe shopping where they have these really nice name brand shoes for less than half price, but they only have the right shoe on display and only in that size, and we had shopped there before for my comp. he bought some shoes, and they didnt have almost any problems, so we go there and we both find some shoes we like and start talking with her and shes like "oo yeah these are nice shoes. ill sell them to you for 30 mil, 28 at the lowest" but i know she likes to barter, so we started talking and i looked thru my wallet and was like "oh, well i only have 22 mil with me, ill take em right now if you sell it to me at that price" and she didnt even think twice and was like "sold!" lol so i got some new shoes that cost 46 mil regularly for less than half price haha she says she has some deal with the manufacturers to get them for cheap. but theyre good shoes, and i havent found any problems with them yet. and while we were there waiting for her to come out cuz she was in the back looking for the left shoe we saw that this guy that she had working for her was ripping her off by telling people a price of like 30 mil and then telling the lady that they bought the shoes for 25 mil, and he kept the other 5 lol it was a pretty sketchy place, but nice shoes! lol
Love, Jared
