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 29th, 2014

This week wasn't so much of a drunk week more of a hangover week, ha-ha, I lost count of how many people we saw throwing up in the street.  I won't ever drink :)  This week was awesome.  We have really been trying to work with the members.  It was really good and we worked a ton this week!  Everything has been going so good!  In priesthood we got up and asked who could come with us during the week and it worked really well.  I think we all need to realize that the ward and the missionaries aren't two separate things it’s 100% working together or it doesn`t work!  We had a couple of intercambios this week.  One with the zone leaders and one with the office elders.  It was really great.  I was with Elder Powell, my companion from Por Venir.  It was a pretty busy week.

Yesterday after church we got a call from a member that we needed to come over to her house right away so we went over and she told us how she heard a voice or something in her house and it was weird.  When she was talking a feeling of dread and like sickness came over me and the spirit was for sure not there.  It was really weird so we blessed her house.  It was really cool, Elder Marshall did it because he hadn't done it before.  As soon as he started praying all the bad feelings went away and when he finished the spirit was there really strong!

We had a lesson with Juan Carlos and his wife.  We hadn`t shared with them for a really long time.  Now that we are working with the members it should be really good.  We just need investigators!  Ha-ha.  So we will see.

We might go to a volcano next p-day!

Football sounds amazing!  I can`t believe the Utes!  The Colts sound like they are doing well!  I Hope they can keep it together and be one of the better teams again!

I think that’s all for now!  Love you guys tons!

Elder Robertson
