This Week From Elder Colin Eyre in Vina del Mar Chile:
This week was pretty cool! We had a less active member that we have been working with for a long time finally come to church. It made me SO happy!
We have also been working with two sisters which has been a great experience. They are both interested in the gospel. During our lessons they say they love the feeling they get as we testify of Christ. I just love that and seeing others progress in the gospel. We have a tentative baptismal date set with them so we will see how it goes. The funny part of the story is the sisters are totally gangster! If we baptize them they will be my first gangsters I baptize. Wouldn't that be SWEET!
It is really pretty cool to see the gospel change the lives of other people. It just makes me happy. I hope all is well in the States and that summer is just blazing hot, it's a bit cold here!
Love ya guys tons have a good week:)

This Week From Elder Colby Eyre in Santiago Chile:
Hey guys this week has been pretty good! I've been getting to know my new comp, Elder Martinez. He is pretty cool and loves to find the best way to do the things which is awesome. He is also a really good missionary. I hope that I will learn a lot from him.
This week we went to go visit a family that we had contacted and had an appointment with. When we got there no one was home. That's always a bit disappointing :(. We left and headed out to try and see if we could find some other contacts. We passed by this guys house and he invited us in! He introduced us to his girlfriend and it turns out she was a member! She said she was so excited when she heard the missionaries out side. She said she has really been going through hard times and had prayed for help. Then we showed up! It is super awesome to be an instrument in the Lords hands. Being on a mission I get to see things like this happen every once in a while. I think it's so cool how the Lord has a reason for everything even though sometimes we don't always understand why.
I hope that everyone at home is having an awesome summer.
I love you all!
Elder Colby Eyre
