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.

April 21, 2014

Easter was really good, I got an incredible amount of chocolate eggs!  Elder Powell doesn't eat junk food so he gives it all to me! haha

This week was really good the beginning of the week was super-cold but the past couple of days have been great!  Today is super rainy so that's a bummer, but whatevers! haha thats not even a word!

This week was really hard, but super rewarding, but super hard!  Nobody really wanted to talk to us, it was funny.  There are 3 evangelical churches here and one of them is super anti-mormon and they are all super funny people ha-ha.  We found a lot of people from that church this week we even found the pastor or whatever you call their leader.  I've decided it's pretty hard to fight against the true church it doesn't work very well :) ha-ha!  We had a family night activity friday and it was super-awesome, a bunch of people came and we had a lot of investigators there!  It was neat.  We found some really cool people this week and made contact with a lot of antiguo investigators.  Last night we were walking home and this car pulled up beside us and asked us if we wanted a ride.  They looked kinda scary so we said no :)haha but they told us where they lived and turns out they are awesome!  They were sharing with the missionaries and they moved so they lost contact with them, but they seem super cool so we are going to try to pass by today!

This was a super good week and we had at least 7 people that said they would go to church!!!  But none of them came!

It was funny, we ate lunch with a member family and they have a daughter that is 8 and she was talking to us about the easter bunny and if he had passed by our house and so we were joking around with her and said no because we forgot to send our address changes to him! haha it was funny!  I joked around with them that Dallin just ate everything Haha.

Well it sure sounds like you guys have had quite the exciting and busy week!  My week was kinda slow and difficult but we endured and worked hard and it worked out real well!  We gave talks yesterday in church, that was really fun, the two of us had to take up like 50 minutes!

Well shoot, I don't really know what else to say!  Hope everything works out super great and everyone is healthy soon :) ¡Les Quiero muchísimo!

Elder Robertson
