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.

February 2nd, 2015

Hey Fam!

So this week has been really good.  We have been finding new people to teach and the people we have, have been progressing.  We are going to have some people with a baptism fecha (date) by the end of this week.  We have been focusing a lot on fixing MLS (the church's membership record system).  The registros (records) are really bad so we have been working hard to fix everything we can.  I have become quite the expert with MLS. :) ok maybe not an expert...but I do ok.  We have been finding lots of inactive members that want to come back to church.  We found one registro and we were asking the old branch president because he knows everyone.  And he was really surprised with one.  We asked him where the guy lived now and he said the prison!  haha  He has been in prison for like 10 years for killing 2 people.  They excommunicated him but never did the paperwork! Haha  

So, funny story.  Saturday night at about 9 we got a call from the sisters in the zone.  They told us they were just getting to Valdivia to go to the hospital!  It wasn't anything too serious but they had to get some medicine.  So we decided to have them just go do everything then so that they wouldn't have to wait until Sunday and miss church.  And then we called the sister leaders in Valdivia because the sisters from our zone were going to spend the night in Valdivia.  Just knowing my luck, both pairs of sisters ran out of minutes on their phones!  Haha, we were up until 12:00 at night making sure everything was ok.  It was super funny.  I just couldn't believe how unorganized it was haha.  They just happened to call us at 9:00 at night "oh hey, by the way we are going to the hospital" It was pretty crazy but everything worked out fine.

I ended up fixing the visa thing last week.  We went to Valdivia for like 5 hours just running around but everything is good now! :) 

Football is disappointing, I hate the Patriots!  The picture you sent of Dallin and Ellie looks kinda like Dallin is peeing and Ellie is sneaking up on him and giving the thumbs up to push him or something. Haha, I got a good laugh out of that! 

Well thats all for now!  Oh yea, I started my flight information!  Haha, I think I should be home July 3 but I will keep you guys updated.
