This Week From Elder Colby Eyre in Santiago Chile:

Hey guys this week has been pretty awesome! I absolutely love my new area, Pirque.  It is huge!  It would take an entire day to walk from one side to the other! We take a ton of buses because the people are much more spaced out than in the city.  The coolest part of the week was going up into this little city thats in the mountains.  We were straight up exploring the new city in the mountains and getting to know the place haha!!

This past week we had been contacting house to house in our new area for HOURS with no luck we were tired and ready to call it a day.  Finally we went to this house and the guy opens up his door and looks at us for a second then says, "hello", but with a pretty good accent!  Then he came out and was like hey Elders and he's speaking all in English!  Then he invites us in and tells us he is a returned missionary.  He served in the south of Chile.  After his mission he came to the US for a little while which is probably where he learned to speak English.  Sadly somewhere along the way he became inactive.   We invited him and his family to come to church this Sunday and he sincerely acts like he wants to come back. It was so awesome to see that miracle happen right in front of our eyes!! We had been contacting for so long and then finally found such an awesome guy and his family! I know that miracles exist and I know that if we always serve the Lord and work hard he will bless us so much!

Thanks for everyone back home who prays for the missionaries.  I love you all!

This Week From Elder Colin Eyre in Vina del Mar Chile:

This week was pretty cool!  I saw the coolest miracle happen with my homie Elder Jenson.   We had 
changes for a day and so we were waiting for the bus and it was just pouring rain.  We were just talking while we waited but knew we needed to get to this meeting we had.  The bus was not coming and it was getting later and later.  Then we said you know what let's say a prayer that this bus comes.  We couldn't walk because it was just raining SO hard.  The second our prayer was over and we opened our eyes, the bus was right in front of us!  We both just smiled real big when we saw it, but it was so cool.  We called it a small mission miracle :)

Currently we have two people with baptism dates but only one of them came to church.  We are praying for miracles with both of them.  It always makes me really happy to see the investigators progressing.

We went on  a hike last Monday and I'm realizing how pretty Chile is! I love to go exploring on P-Day.  One day I'm totally coming back with my friends and family to go do some exploring!

Thanks everyone for all the prayers it helps a lot.  I hope everyone has a good week love you guys tons!
