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 26, 2014

My week was good.  We have found some new people and have just about knocked all the doors in Porvenir:) haha Jorge and Lila are progressing really good but still haven't come to church!!  This Wednesday we are going to have a lesson with them in the church so they can be more comfortable with it.

Elder Cariqueo is my companion.  I would send a picture but it doesn´t work :( his camera doesn´t work también.  He is awesome, he is from Santiago and is almost 24!  He is an old fart!  He is a good Elder.  We get along good.  He is a funny kid! haha

I'm glad the doctors went good!  It's awesome everything is done!  That is awesome Deanna is engaged!  I haven´t emailed her in forever.  So her fiancee doesn't have anything to worry about! haha :)  Yea, I knew Paige! I didn't know she was mormon... That's awesome she is going on a misión!

Seems like the ward is growing really good!  Sounds like lots of people are moving in!

Dad, it would seem that the Young men need some palos!  Get on them for that one.  Tell them to start doing things on their own now before I get back and just make them do it! haha Just kidding.  Just tell them it's a lot easier to have good habits before the misión and not wait until the MTC :)

Not much happened this week.  We are sharing a lot with Jorge and Lila but don´t have too many other strong investigators!  I JUST REMEMBERED something hilarious, we shared with this guy in the army and he thinks the church was formed by the government to unite the world!  hahaha  It was the funniest thing I've ever heard in my life!  He is a funny guy.  We are working a lot with menos activas so that is really good.  We had a menos activa come to church who hasn't come in years!  It was really cool.

El Albedrio (freedom of choice)! It's something I have learned really well on the mission.  Everyone has it and all I can do is work my hardest, pray, and rely on the Lord.  Then they have to decide.

Well I can´t really think of anything else.  We did a lot of walking this week!

This week our zone leaders are going to come and we are going to do splits so that should be fun!  Something new!!!!! haha Love you guys tons!
