Called to Serve - Osorno, Chile

Elder Keenan Robertson is serving in the Osorno Chile Mission as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Elder Robertson left on July 16, 2013 and will return sometime around July of 2015. Missionaries have a limited time to respond to all the E-mails and letters they receive so we will include here some of his letters home so that friends and family can keep up to date on how things are going for him and his ministry among the wonderful people of Chile.

September 23, 2013

Well, the food finally hit me.  The human stomach can only take so much oil!!! haha  Not sure how Chileans are alive...My stomach was pretty upset for awhile but it seems to be getting better.

The dogs are crazy, haha, and i have have fleas!  We are going to try and buy some spray to kill them but all the missionaries I`ve talked to say they get them in the summer and they all die in the winter.  It's not too bad, thankfully, but they are annoying!  I have a funny dog story.  So on the street where I live there is this medium sized wiener dog that hates us but it's terrified of us.  So usually it stays as far away as it can from us.  But one day it got really close to us so we started running after it.  We chased it the whole street so it stays even farther away now! haha

The weather is still really amazing, it's nice and sunny.  The only bad thing is in the morning it is so cold!  When it warms up, we are going to start playing basketball with some other elders.  So I'm excited for that!

Thanks for the prayers!  I love prayer!  It helps a lot!

This week was super uneventful because we couldn't go out except to set visits.  Chilean holidays are just an excuse to eat and get as drunk as possible.  It was funny walking around and seeing people walking in zigzags down the sidewalk.  They warmed us about getting robbed but i wasn't too scared. :)

We meet as a zone every week and I think the zone leaders always have packages and letters and stuff so I'll get it on a Tuesday, just not sure which one.  Hopefully soon though, I'm excited, thanks for sending it!

Well, I think that's everything, I will try and start writing letters.  I don`t think it's too expensive.
