Alright so really I don’t have any idea what happened last week and if it was my fault I would like to apologize. I promise you that I did send a letter last week but I don’t think it sent and it didn’t save as well so I don’t know but the important thing is that I’m writing now.

Much has happened in these last few weeks, as you can see we had a baptism last week and another one again this week! It has been amazing see these people grow closer to Christ and make these important decisions in their lives to follow him. I’m so happy for them that they are doing the right thing. We baptized this boy named "A" this week too and he is soo cool he’s 10 years old and the rest of his family will be baptized as well but they are just going to take a little bit longer. There are some things we need to work with them on, like word of wisdom and law of chastity but it’s a challenge I’m ready to handle. Anyway I’m grateful for the example he will be to his family.

But anyway I should tell you about the crazy weekend after the baptism we had, so transfers were this well today but we got the calls on Sat.  So what has happened is that my old area Renacimiento has been closed and there will no longer be missionaries working in that area officially. I have been transferred to the area San Vicente, and guess what they are neighbours. My new comp is Elder N. It’s really funny too cause after the baptisms on Saturday and we both baptized, we were talking and I was like ¨hey were gunna be comps next transfer” just jokingly cause he has 6 months in this area already so this next will make it seven and a half but ya then we did end up being comps. He’s way cool and we have been in the same pension now for 3 months and so now we are comps and both our comps left to other areas. So we went from a 4 man pension to 2 so this could get a little interesting. But hey I’m excited and its really sad cause there are more people that can be baptized in that area but I will talk to President and see if we can keep on visiting them. Anyway I better move on cause I don’t have too much time left and were kind of in a rush and I can tell you a lot more detail on Christmas.

Speaking of that. I will buy a phone card here and will be calling from our chapel and so I will be calling the house around 6pm my time and I think that’s about 3pm your time so if you could all be there that would be awesome. I’ll just call and then we will talk and ladida it will be done but I’m pumped to hear you guys this next week. Its gunna be a real Christmas treat and also I got your package. It was one that said Navidad Especial on it so I hope that’s the one you sent a long time ago, if not its probably lost and now I have this one but hey it’s all good I’m looking forward to opening it.

 I don’t really know what else to say right now my mind is going pretty fast and I want to say so much, I have so little time.  I hope all is well with you guys it sounds like you are all staying busy with basketball both Sara and Dad coaching (way to go by the way!!!!) and ya sounds like your all keeping busy and Mom with Christmas all lined up. Man I miss the holidays but hey I got time to enjoy later.  I’m loving it here, its definitely hard at times and we will see how this next transfer goes but hey I’m loving the work and I know it’s what I need to be doing and I know that it is true. I know that God can help us with whatever we are going through and he’s there to help us out. Anyway I’m sorry not too much said today and I didn’t really have any stories to share but hey until next week. I love you all soo much and I’ll talk to you soon. 

Love, Kent

WEEK 19 - a baptism!!


How are you all?

Well from the Christmas letter which I thoroughly enjoyed sounds like everyone is doing great and I learned some new things that you haven’t told me so that was sweet like Sara and the guitar!! Cool, cool and the duet. Anyway time to get to business.

So as you can probably tell from the pics we had a baptism!!!!!!!!! It was so great, they are 2 boys of 11 years and they are soo cool, named F and N. I baptized for the one with his hair down and Elder L baptized N with the spiky kinda of hair. It was amazing and I’ve got my white pants wet now!!  I’m just so happy, we just had the best week of success and I don’t want to count more chickens before they hatch but we should be having 2 more this next Saturday and then hopefully 4 the week after that so ya it should be a very merry Christmas!! Man it’s just been great to see that through hard work and diligence the Lord can bless us and in this last little while I have seen a lot of blessing the Lord has given us. Oh and sorry about spelling this week this keyboard is pure junk!! 

Anyway on to more things so by the way I’m just wondering but me and my comp were talking about it, what do we use when we do fondue??? Like what liquid?? Just a weird question but whatever. 

About the devotional, unfortunately we couldn’t go to it cause it was at 10 at night here cause the time difference but hopefully we’ll be able to see it another time and if not then when I’m home. But ya I hope you guys enjoy it. I don’t even want to start to talk about Christmas even though it’s great cause there are so many things I miss, like carolling, caramels, decorating, just being home listening to Christmas music. Oh by the way I heard the new JB album came out and it’s Christmas so maybe I’ll see it around here. Anyway it sounds like the Christmas season is there already in Canada. but it’s not seeming like it here, still really hot all the time, not any decorations here, so really I haven’t seen a glimpse of the Christmas spirit but hey it will come in my heart you can know that.

 About the calls I haven’t been told much I think I just get a calling card and then call you guys. I think we should get an email about it soon so I’ll forward it if you don’t get it. I don’t really know what else to put, but ya we play futbol all the time so that’s really fun and I’m improving so I should be like Messi when I get home. He’s the best soccer player in the world and he’s from Argentina by the way. But ya so anyway not much else to write sorry folks but just know I had a great week. 

It was way fun and just really felt the influence of the Lord, great success and blessings come when we are really trying to do what’s right. I’m just trying to be the best missionary I can be and so we’ll see what’s in store for me next week.

Well no more news from me but love you all and have a great week!!
