August 24, 2015 - Chao Pescado

Hola familia y amigos,

Well, let me just start with the bad news. We got a call from President Videla and Elder S and Elder E are being transferred back to Santiago. Elder A and I will be companions, and we will be the only missionaries here for a while because they are not sending other missionaries to replace Elder E and Elder S.
The two of them take off tomorrow so today is their last Pday in the island and there is a ton to do today.

This week, we were doing a lot of finding and we found some cool people that I´ll tell you all about.

1. There is a guy named C that fixes are bikes when we have problems with them, and he is way cool. He asked that the next time we pass by if we can share our message with him. I love it when people contact us!
2. We found a young guy named F. who was really awesome. He was super respectful and he was only 12 years old. He and his family have listened to missionaries before, but we are still trying to locate their house (there are no addresses here on the island only street names)
3. We met a guy from the United States that lives here. His name is C (awesome name!) and he was really pleased to see us, and he told us he wants to watch a video about Jesus Christ with us that was made here in Easter Island. 
4. We also found a Peruvian family that is living here. We shared the message of the Restoration with J who hadn't prayed in a long time, but he prayed at the end and he said he felt really good.

We also met with M. two times this week. We got to teach her the plan of salvation with a member present and it was nice to see her put together why we get baptized. We don't get baptized so we can join a church, we get baptized so we can be cleansed from sin and live with God.

We also met one of the converts here in the island. L was baptized almost two years ago by Elder B, but we haven't been able to find him. It turns out that he is living and working in the hospital here, and he is awesome! He hasn't been able to come because he had knee surgery and cancer, so it was a little difficult to get out of bed, but now he is doing really well!

The craziest thing that happened this week was the arrival of a certain friend of mine, ex Elder M arrived on the Island on Saturday. He is going to be working and living here until April. He arrived on the same plane as J, who was visiting family in Santiago for the past ten days. The big news is that they came off the plain holding hands... they are going out. Apparently after Macedo finished his mission, he started talking with J on Facebook, and they met up in Santiago, and they talked about it, and now they are going out...

That's the big news here on the Island. Elder Adams and I are going to have a ton to do here with two missionaries covering the whole island. I don't know how we are going to do it, but the lord will help us out. I know that this is His work. 

p.s. We found a trampoline and Elder Swan used to be a gymnast!
