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 28th, 2014

This week was good. The Sisters got moved to another city to open a sector. And so the sector here doesn`t exist anymore, haha, so now in our district it's us and the lideres de zona.  It's funny. 

With Chile we got permission to watch the soccer games of Chile!  So that's been really fun.  They just finished playing against Brazil but lost.  So we probably won't watch anymore games.  It depends on the new president.  Thursday we said goodbye to president Rappleye.  He left today, I think, and for sure the new president is here!!  It should be good I will probably get to see him this next week.  It will be interesting to see how things change. 

I like my sector a lot.  It's really small.  We don't have anyone to teach so we have been working really hard with that.  We contact a lot of people and we are trying really hard to work with the members to get references.  We have started to find some people and so I guess that's good. :-) 

Osorno is great!  It's really cool being in the center of everything.  We played rugby this morning and it was really fun.  There is a store here called Jumbo, and it has DR. PEPPER!!!!!!! and ROOT BEER!!!! Haha, it's awesome!  It's weird how many people are here!  There are always people in the street.  People aren't too friendly but we work through it! :) 

It's awesome how fast I get things here!!  I got two of your letters dad and a letter from nana! 

Our house is super big but really cold!  It's just us two and we have a wood heater.  I love chopping wood!  It's weird but I love it.  The house doesn't heat up very well but we do ok, I guess. :)  Not too much has happened this week.  Just lots of hard work and, yea, haha, pretty much that.   :) 

I haven't seen Elder Beals, I think he might have been transferred but don't know for sure.  He was in Porvenir before me.  He was super super sick for awhile! 

Sounds like things are going super good for you!  July 4th should be good, that sounds exciting! 

I can't wait for football updates too!

Well, I think that's all.  This should be a super good week, I'm really excited.
