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.

March 2nd, 2015

Sorry for the short emails!  Ha-ha, I'll try to be better.  This week was really good.  Cambios were all right; luckily in the Zone we didn't have too many cambios so everything went good.  I'm pretty excited about the Zone; we have a lot of good elderes.  The Hermanas (sisters) in our Zone are also working really hard.  Hopefully just about everybody will baptize during this cambio.  Friday we had our leadership meeting in Osorno.  We had to leave Thursday night at like 7:00pm and we spent the night in Valdivia.  Then from Valdivia we left the house at 5:00 am and we finally made it back to Lanco at 10:30 at night!  It was a crazy day.  I'm happy now because there won't be anymore really long trips for awhile. 

Today we have interviews with presidente so that should be really good.  Romina is progressing really good so she should get baptized the 14th!  I'm excited for that.  We are working with lots of menos-activos and trying to find people to teach, but it has been good.  We do lots of contacts and we are always looking for people to teach. 

Elder Hilton's parents came and got him so I got to see them.

Hitchhiking isn't bad here, everybody does it.  There are people that go from all the way up north to the bottom of Punta Arenas Hitchhiking, ha-ha.  We got some good contacts.  We don't do it very much. 

No worries that I didn't get in to BYU.  UVU should be great; I know lots of people that are going there.  That's awesome about basketball.  The University Utah seems to be doing good this year.  Well I think that is all for now.  We are going to play sports for awhile and then we are going to have the interviews with president. 

Love you tons! 

Elder Robertson
