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.

Feb. 10, 2014

This week was great especially the end!

First, some important announcements (anuncios) :).   Next week my p-day is on Tuesday so don´t worry when the emails come late.  Second, me and McDonald are staying together for another cambio!!!! Wahoo! I’m excited.  Third, it was really windy this week! I can´t believe how windy!  I bought a backpack!  It’s cool, I like it.  I bought it off an Elder so it’s old but it’s great!

So the new family is interesting.  They have an 8 year old daughter.  The parents are separated but live as vecinos (neighbors).  And they do everything together.  So it’s kinda weird, they’re separated but together!  They are super awesome and right now want to be members of the church.  They just need to know!  It’s cool because the mom works a ton as a receptionist at a hotel so she reads the Book of Mormon, ha-ha, they are all going to be baptized!  They are awesome, I like them a ton.

Thanks for your fast!  So there is a less active in our ward that we share with all the time but usually just scriptures and stuff.  So we went over yesterday and her husband was there.  He works outside of Punta Arenas so he works 15 days out and 15 days here.  We have shared with him a little bit but nothing big.  He wasn´t really interested.  But we go over yesterday and he is there so we talk for a little bit and then he talks about how much extra time he has in his work.  And then goes on to tell us that he has read the whole Book of Mormon!  And he had some "questions!" ha-ha it was really cool.  I’m hoping that it works out with him.  We are going by on Tuesday.

We had a cool lesson with ________ and her son.  He just doesn´t know why baptism is important so we are going to keep working with him a lot.

Yesterday was awesome!  Two of our investigators came to church and the ward really stepped it up and it was awesome, they really liked it. The mom works a lot and normally all night long so it’s going to be tough.  But I’m excited for this week and this next cambio.

That’s crazy another surgery!  When!  Hopefully it helps!  That’s awesome all about Dallin; tell him he needs to start emailing me at least twice a month. I’ll do the same! :)

I didn´t even know Tiffany was pregnant! Ha-ha

No penguins still!  I’m hoping we will do trips this next cambio.  You guys are all awesome and I love you tons!  Nos vemos!

El Campo

There is a lot of graffiti here, some of it is pretty cool. 

Well, this week it rained and rained and then rained and then was super-windy and then rain and then sun with lots of wind and then rain and then wind :-)
