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.

October 27th, 2014

We had cambios!  Elder Marshall left to Punta Arenas.  It was really fast, they called us in the morning Tuesday around 7:00am.  He left Tuesday at 6:00!  It was really fast; he got his bags ready and we ran around centro and he left!  I was sad to see him go!  Elder Fernandez is awesome!  He has about 7 months in the mission.  He is a super good elder; we have worked so hard this week.  We did tons of contacts and we taught a ton!  It has been a really good week.  We had 67 people in church!  That's the most we've had in my time here.  It was crazy to see so many people in church!  I think I'm going to be surprised when I see our ward! :)

It was really cool.  Saturday we had a ward member come out and work with us.  We visited some less actives and some inactive people.  It was great because every single one of the people we visited with the member came to church!  There was a mom, daughter, and son that haven't come in a really long time!  And they came to church.  Tonight we are going to have a noche de hogar (Family Home Evening) in the home of the Stake President, with the same family!  We are still sharing with Juan Carlos.  He wants to get baptized January 11. Hope everything works out for them. 

That's crazy Nana gets home Wednesday!  Time sure flew by! 

Fun Fact for the day!!!!  The tomato cheese spinach ravioli was on sale 3 for one today!!!!!  I bought 3! :) 

The work has been going really good.  It's awesome to be a missionary.  In the Christmas package you send could you send the Ensign from conference? 

Football sounds great, I hope Utah keeps doing good.  It's good this year they won`t be second to last in the Pac 12.  Colts is a bummer!  I think it will take a little time for them to get back on top!  Peyton needs at least one more Superbowl and he can retire.:)  

Tell Aunt suzie Thanks!

I think that is everything.  I talked to our mamita and we are going to have a big turkey dinner for Thanksgiving!  That should be fun!

Love you guys!
Elder Robertson

This is Elder Ramer.  He has only 6 weeks in the mission.  He has been staying with us the past little bit.  He is from a small city really close to Gilbert.  I'm not sure how long he will be with us. 

This is my new companion, Elder Fernandez.  He is from Sonora, Mexico. 

The other day we saw a guy outside with a chick.  Just so we could talk to him, I asked him if I could take a picture of it.  It was really funny.  He is a cool guy.  I was looking for new ways to contact people.  haha Chickens work every time! :)

This is the edge of our sector in Franke.

Elder Marshall se fue! A Punta Arenas!!

Oh yea!!!!!!!!! Elder Russell M. Nelson is coming! :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! November 12.  I'm going to be here in Osorno this time to see an Apostle!
