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.

September 1st, 2014

This week has been really good! We have been working hard and it's awesome to be a missionary.  Our p-day changed to Monday so that's why I didn't write Saturday.

Our house has some major rat problems so we put some poison down, hopefully that works.  We haven`t seen or heard any but there is mouse poop all over the place.  We are cleaning everything super good and we have all our food on a high table in the middle of the room, haha, so they can´t get up.  So we will see how that goes.  We have been talking to some members and they say that pretty much everywhere is infested with rats.... haha so we will see what happens. 

We have had some really good lessons with Juan Carlos.  He is progressing really well.  They said whenever we pass by they can feel the spirit.  And then we leave and the good feelings leave!  It's frustrating.  We have found some really cool people this week so it will be good to see what happens.  The work is going forward.  It's really cool because everything is changing with a new mission president and the church leaders are starting to get really excited.  We are trying really hard to work more with the members and it has been really good.

Your emails were great.  Football sounds awesome!  Thanks dad.  Peyton Manning is my favorite player of all time.  And Dallin looks like a stud!!  Hopefully that goes really well for him.  He`d make a good firefighter.  I`ve seen a couple of house fires in my time here and its always the coolest thing watching the firemen!  I hope everything goes well!

We are working a lot with Gonzalo(mamitas son).  He is really cool.  We are working with him so it's good.  We have a family night with mamitas tonight so that should be good.  

I hear from Aaron and Nate every once in a while, they are doing good.  It's the coolest thing ever!  Thiago went on a mission!!!!!  He is in Boston speaking Portuguese. 

It was kinda warming up here but today its raining!  I am excited though, it's going to be summer soon! Cambios are this week but we shouldn`t change because Elder Marshall is in training.  Time is going by so fast!  I can`t believe it.  Haha, and I don´t want to believe it! 

Im so glad everything is going good!  I love you guys so much! 
¡Que estén muy bien!

Elder Robertson
