This Week from Elder Colin Eyre from Vina del Mar Chile:

What's up!  So right now as I'm sitting down there are two adults next to me and they are flirting and its cracking me up sooo much - it's so awkward :). 

This week was pretty great we had a meeting with the mission president and it was awesome.  We talked a lot about faith and the power of faith so that was pretty cool. 

Jacob 4:6 Wherefore, we search the prophets, and we have many revelations and the spirit of prophecy; and having all these witnesses we obtain a hope, and our faith becometh unshaken, insomuch that we truly can command in the name of Jesus and the very trees obey us, or the mountains, or the waves of the sea.

In Jacob 4:6 we can learn about how powerful our faith really can be but I think it kinda takes an entire lifetime to be able to get to that - haha!  Everyday I try to grow my faith here in the mission.  

We have a lady that we are teaching she is really cool and her name is Carolina.  She is really nice and possibly will get baptized this week so we are pretty pumped about that.

I know that God loves us and wants us to be blesssed:)

This Week From Elder Colby Eyre in Santiago Chile:

Whats up friends and family! I miss you guys tons but this week has been pretty good! We had this conference with our area president a few weeks ago.  He talked a lot about setting goals and achieving the goals to help us stay focused with our faith and lots of work which go hand in hand.  It was really cool because I went to the meeting with one question in my mind and it was, "How can I be more focused?" It was funny because thats pretty much what the whole meeting was about.

So to get back on track with this week my new companion and I have been trying to set high goals and do everything in our power to complete them.  It's been pretty awesome because we have been able to see so many miracles by doing this. One night my companion and I set a goal to find two new investigators.  The next day we were on the way back to our house and I was like crap we worked pretty hard today and we only have one new investigator.  In my head I was like I know the lord will help me out on this one and I will do my part and talk to everyone we pass going back to our house.  Well guess what, the first person that we talked to accepted our message and told us we could come back to his house so we left him with a prayer and met our goal!  This has really helped me learn the importance of setting goals and doing everything in our power to reach them.  I know when we do this we can see miracles happen and also see the hand of God in our lives!

I'm so thankful for this gospel and for the time I get to spend on the mission. I hope everyone back home has an amazing week!
