Chile Santiago East Mission

This Week From Elder Colby Eyre in Santigao Chile:

Hey what's up everyone!  This week has been pretty good here in Chile the weather is really starting to heat up which sort of stinks. I will say I like the heat more than the cold!  

My new companion is pretty awesome we have been doing pretty great together.  It's a little weird to be with someone that speaks English because I haven't really spoken much English in the past 4 months.   

I'm loving the new ward that I'm in because so many members are pretty open to coming with us to go preach the gospel to investigators in the area.  I can't tell you enough how much it helps.  I would encourage all of you guys to go ask the missionaries if you can go to a lession with them.  It really is such a game changer when the members are there to help and support. 

Sunday during sacrament meeting I had to present myself in the new ward.  My mission president showed up to the sacrament meeting so that made me really nervous.  In the end, besides my red face it all turned out pretty well.  

Well I had my last Halloween here in Chile.  It is pretty lame for the missionaries because we have to be in early.  I was really missing my mom's chili and breadsticks when there was a Halloween miracle.  My mom sent me a Halloween package with all the Halloween candy and I got it on Halloween!  

I love all of you guys back home and I know the church is true. Have a great week.

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

This week was pretty awesome we were able to baptize my friend Ricardo!  He was so happy and I just know that coming to church has changed his life and made the family so happy.  During sacrament meeting on Sunday I was able to confirm him and it was really cool!  After Ricardo wanted to sit next to us and we were just sitting there and I just started to cry because God has been answering my prayers.  It is so awesome to know that now this little kid will be able to receive so many blessings as he continues to live the gospel.

I'm so happy that I have the gospel in my life and that I have the opportunity to help others.  Sometimes its hard to be away from my family or be in a country that eats a lot of bread which doesn't help my health at all.  Haha,  I love being here and being able to serve the people of Chile, it is all worth it!

I hope everyone has a solid Halloween and can get a lot of American candy because its way better than Chilean candy! Love you guys a ton have a good week:)
