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.

June 21, 2014

I got my package!  But it was weird, I got it in Punta arenas!  It took one month to go from the house to Punta Arenas!  Thanks for everything!  The hot chocolate was really good.  We drank all of it in Punta Arenas! :) The Crunch bars are gone but they were good! :)  The hat is really awesome too!  Thanks for the pics!  I like showing people my awesome family! 

Osorno is awesome!  Our house is huge!  But super old and kinda sucks!  haha  But it is massive, almost as big as our house I think!!!!  I haven't taken any pictures yet but I will.  It's sad because we don't have a gas heater! Just wood!!!! haha I already burned my hand :)  The trip down here was really good, but long!  We took a plane from Punta Arenas to Puerto Montt and then a bus to Osorno!  It's so much different, everybody is in the street! It's crazy how many people are here!!!  The Ward I'm in is called Francke haha weird I know! :)  It's awesome the members are the strongest i`ve met in chile!  

So I have another funny story..... :) haha so after traveling here I was super super tired and so we finally got here and got on a bus to go to our sector.  So I had my suitcase and it was pretty heavy.  The bus stopped in our sector but far from the curb so I tried to step from the bus to the curb and made it!  But just barely and the suitcase was heavy enough that I couldn't stop going forward!  haha So i tripped over my suitcase and fell :) it was pretty funny. 

Being district leader is weird Tuesday I'll probably have to do a district meeting!!!!  It's funny, in my district I have hermanas!  It's weird talking on the phone with them.  Their names are Hna Rodrigez and Hna Ball.  And I have the zone leaders!!!! crap! :) Elders Hawks and Munns.  It's funny doing numbers and stuff I have no idea what I'm doing i just go with the flow and so far everything has worked out. Thanks for all the advice! I've been pretty worried but reading your emails really helped out. Thanks! 

P-day was awesome today we played sports!!!!!  It was fun but I haven't ran for a really long time! :) Its crazy how busy it is here but I love it there is so much going on! :) 

Elder Montiel is really cool. He is from Argentina. He was baptised  two years ago!!!!  He is awesome.  It's really funny because he the exact same person as brandon! haha like I really think they might be the same person!  It's cool he is funny.  He has three months in the mission.  It's kinda weird, all my companions have been young in the mission.  Every single one has had less than a year!  I'm really excited to be here in Osorno it is really awesome! 

Tell aunt liz and them that I love them  I've been terrible and really need to send a letter! 

What other changes have happened in the ward?

Thanks for everything you guys are awesome! love you tons and tons! :)

 This is the mamita de PorVenir!  She is awesome!  I gave her your email and she said she wills end a picture of the whole family because they were all gone.

  This is Elder Cariqueo and Elder Parsons, my trainer.

 These are two volcanoes you could see from the airport in Puerto Montt!  It's super pretty, too bad you can't see them from where I am.

 This is our Capilla (Osorno).  It's awesome!!!!!  It's two stories high and it's really big.  Our ward and another ward meet in it.
