March 2, 2015 "Miracles dont bring faith, faith brings Miracles´´ Transfer from Rio Negro to Puenta Arenas

So right now I am in Punta Arenas, Chile. My ward is the Magallanes ward. My companion es Elder Bareiro from Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is his last cambio in the mission.. so I will be his last companion (just like with Elder Dolinar). The members here are awesome. We have a family that we are teaching that are really awesome. The dad reads almost everyday and they have been going to chUrch for the past 5 weeks straight. So I am off to a good start;)....
    Monday and Tuesday of last week Elder Holt and I spent a lot of time getting everything ready for the Hermanas that were coming in so that they would know of everything that they needed. Then we said good bye to some of the members and the our investigators. Wednesday we woke up at 5:00am to get to the terminal of the buses on time. (with all 4 of us, we had about 10 suitcases out on the street waiting for a bus at 630 in the morning).. we got to the Terminal in Osorno. Elder Linford went ot Entre Lagos to finish his last cambio (he will finish after this cambio too). Elder Holt went to Frutillar in Puerto Varas and his companion is Elder Ryan (from my group in the MTC). Elder Winward came down to Punta Arenas with me. We went from Osorno to Puerto Montt where we meet up with two hermanas and an other Elder who were going rdown to Punta Arenas too. then we took another bus to the airport 45 min away from Puerto Montt.W e got on the airplane and flew down to Punta Arenas... when we got there we took another bus to the Stake center in punta arenas where our companions were waiting for us. (on the bus there was two guys from the States who were doing backpacking)..  then we took a taxi to the house and left my bags there and we left to start working. Punta arenas is really pretty. Right now the temp. is pretty good.. but when winter comes........   the biggest factor is because the wind makes it colder outside.. I dont have any pics yet of Punta Arenas but I will try to get some next week... 
    Earlier this week I was studying about Faith... at the end of my studies I wrote down a phrases: ´´Miracles dont bring faith, faith brings Miracles´´. Sometimes like Korihor, we want a sign or a miracle to appear to help us or to strengthen our faith. But that is not how it works. Our faith is what brings the signs and the miracles. (Ether 6 talks a lot about that). There are a lot of things we can do to strengthen our faith. Such as reading the  scriptures, going to church and hearing testimonies of other, praying, adn doing the things God has commanded us (John 7:17). ..  I love you all and hope you have a good week!!!!
