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

Well things are getting pretty crazy here in Vina Del Mar!  It is time to change companions which is really sad because I have had a great time and lots of success with Elder Cheney.  He has become a real good friend.  My new comp is Elder Hansen from Tooele, Utah and he is on his last transfer so that is pretty cool.  We are already kind of friends but I'm always really happy to be able to serve in the lords vineyard!

This week we had a lot of fun and we worked hard.  We almost got a baptism with Carolina but she is going to end up getting baptized next week.  It was way cool because at first she came to church with just her daughters.  Her husband is actually less active but on Sunday the entire family came and her husband showed up all dressed in his nice suit.  It made me so happy to see all her family there.

 Chile is fun and I love being able to see God's hand in not only my life but others. :)

This Week From Elder Colby Eyre in Santiago Chile:

Hey Homies back home - I miss you all!  This week has been pretty good. We had Stake Conference and Pres. Morgan came and spoke on surrounding ourselves with positive and Christ-like things.  He started out with the story of Lot in the Bible and how after he had separated from Abraham he went and set up his tent looking out over the city of Sodom.  This was a very sinful city.  King Benjamin called all of the people in the kingdom to come hear him speak.  All those that came set up their tents to face King Benjamin.  Everyday as the people left their tents they would see King Benjamin's tent and were reminded of his faithfulness and righteousness and what a good example he was.  Now in today's world we can't really change our front doors to face something great like the temple but we can surround ourselves with uplifting pictures or quotes that we will help us grow spiritually and also help us grow closer to Christ.

I love this example so much and I know that as we surround ourselves with uplifting things we will grow closer to Christ and we will feel his spirit stronger.

I love all you guys back home so much have a great week!
