August 31, 2015 "HAPPY 20TH BIRTHDAY ELDER HUGHES"

  Hey!! well I feel bad that you guys are dying of heat... 115 degrees.. I am sure that if it got that hot here, the people would die on the spot.. they think it is hot at 65 degrees.. This week there was a lot of rain.. Today was the first day this week without rain.. Sunday morning it rained like crazy before sacrament meeting so a lot of people didnt show up.. 
    I went to Calbuco (a little town on the other side of puerto montt and it is a island.) to go on exchanges with Elder Hardy. 
   Every transfer we rotate from having zone conference and interviews with the president. This transfer we are doing interviews and instead of all the missionaries of the zone meeting at the stake center to do them, the president and the zone leaders and the wife of the president, are going to the houses of the missionaries to do house inspections and check the area book. President came to our house Thursday night and they brought my packages with them.. all went well (dont worry, our house was clean.. we try to clean it ecery week).. 
    We have been able to find a few new people this week. Tomorrow we have a lot of appointments with old contacts, so hopefully all turn into investigators, 
 his sunday we had branch conference. The branch of los muermos is part of the mission, President Obeso could come so his first councilor came. He is from Valdivia. His name is President Valeria. He came Saturday and we went out with us to invite less active members to the conference. Like i said, alot of people didnt come for the rain.. and it was really a lot of rain, we walked from our house to the "house" where we meet and i was soaking wet when we arrived, then we left again to pick up investigators, but they didnt answer us;(.. but we had an awesome day at church, two people received the Melchizedek priesthood,, 
    Today Elder Warner and i helped a man who is paralyzed from his chest down and cant move his arms either, to get out from his bed and put him in his wheel chair, we will be passing by daily to help him... 
     This week I have been focusing on using the spirit more when I teach instead of reciting the lesson to the investigators, i know that God knows what we need and we have his spirit to help us and guide us.. just as Alma did with his son Coriantumer to find out what worried him (Alma 40:1, 41:1, 42:1) we must help those under our responsibility by the spirit. i love you guys and also thanks for the Birthday wishes.. Love you so much,,
