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.

December 22nd, 2014

This week was good.  We did a lot of contacts!  We talked to 166 people this week.  It was a good week, we worked hard.  Church was normal so that was good.  We gave talks.  It was funny because the power went out during my talk but it’s good the church buildings are small so I didn't have to yell too loud! :)  This week has been really cold!  Ha-ha go figure.  The day isn't bad but the mornings and nights are terrible.  Friday and Saturday it rained tons!  But today looks like it should be good!  Wednesday we have permission to be out until 11:00.  We are going to be with family Hueiquemilla and we are going to eat dinner with them.  That’s where I’m going to Skype as well. 

The Zone is going good.  It’s kinda hard because everything is so spread out.  We have to buy all the wood for next year.  And we still have to do house inspections. Ha-ha it always seems like we are running around.  It’s good though because I've trained myself to sleep on all the buses. 
We are working hard!  Lanco is a very interesting sector.  There are lots of less-actives and they are less-actives for a lot of reasons!  But oh well.  We have been working really hard to find the chosen people whether they are investigators or less-actives that want to come back.

I like these scriptures. We are trying to apply this to everybody.
D & C 29: 
 And ye are called to bring to pass the gathering of mine elect; for mine elect hear my voice and harden not their hearts;

D & C 
 34 Behold, there are many called, but few are chosen. And why are they not chosen?
 35 Because their hearts are set so much upon the things of this world, and aspire to the honors of men
 34 Behold, there are many called, but few are chosen. And why are they not chosen?
This has helped me realize the only reason people aren´t chosen by God is because they don´t want to.
Things are good here!  I’m excited to be a missionary in this time!  I love the work so much.
Well I think that’s all for now!  See you Wednesday.
