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.

April 13th, 2015

Hey Fam.
Villarrica is awesome!  The Last three months of my mission are going to be a vacation!  Haha.  It's so pretty here.  The actual city is really big and touristy so it has everything!  It's right by a huge pretty lake and the Volcano is pretty dang close.  I`ve heard that the volcano has picked up in activity so they think it might erupt again!  I hope my camera is ready!  I'm far enough away that i'd be fine but there are 4 missionaries in a city called Pucon.  It's at the bottom of the Volcano. Haha.  They have been here in Villarica ever since it erupted and just barely went back to Pucon this week.  But we always have to be ready to pull them out again.  The Volcano is pretty dang cool. Smoke is always coming out of it but we will see if anything happens.

My Companion's name is Elder Maneses.  He is from Chile; a city called "La Serena."  He is cool.  We get along great so it will be good.  I'm sure I will be with him until I go home.  The sector where I'm at is awesome!  I'm in a Rama(branch) called Volcán... haha.  It has about the same attendance as Lanco.  Yesterday we had 48 people in church.  I'm excited to be here.  It's going to be awesome!  Our ward mission leader's name is Max.  He got baptized a year ago and just a couple weeks ago his mom got baptized.  I think his dad is going to get baptized here soon as well.

Max's mom's name is Marienela.  She is our mamita now.  So we go over everyday to eat lunch.  She makes really good food. 

The house we live in is really cool.  It's the first house I've lived in with 4 elders.  It's fun, we live with an Elder Perkins de Las Vegas y un Elder Coulson de Bear River, Utah.  They are cool, we get along great.  It's also the first time I've shared a ward or Rama with Sister missionaries.  They work hard. 

This week was cambios and then we had our zone leader meeting in Osorno so we haven't had much time in the sector.  But I'm excited, it's going to be good. 

This week we have our Zone conference with president.  We found a stone oven pizza place today and so for the conference we are going to eat delicious Pizza!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm bummed I'm not in Osorno anymore because when we were there for the meeting I found out they have a Subway!!!!! 

This picture is from Lanco, a member had a flag and so we took tons of pictures! Haha

Love you guys!
