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.

May 14, 2014

We had a great visit with Keenan via Skype from Por Venir, Chile.  He said that he is doing great and loving the work and the people, not so much the food.  He talked about his work with investigators and less active members.  He doesn't anticipate being in Por Venir for more than a couple more months.  It is very remote but fairly modern.  He talked about wild Llamas and Penguins.  He laughed when we told him it was 75 degrees here, and said that he hasn't felt 75 degrees in many months even though it is the end of summer there.  The nights are getting long, he says it is dark by 5:30 pm and the sun comes up after 8:00 am.  In a couple of months the days will only be about 7 hours long.

He bore his testimony for everyone in Spanish so here it is below.  He loves getting emails and letters/cards.  We are very proud of him and excited that he is doing so well.
