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.

May 25th, 2015

This week was really good.  Both Maria Jose and Luis came to church.  They are both really cool.  It's really cool to teach Maria.  I have learned there are two types of people that accept the gospel.  The first accepts the gospel because they have to.  They are at a point in their lives so low that it is the only way they can be humble enough to accept the gospel.  The other type are the people that accept the gospel because they want to.  It doesn't matter where they are in their lives, they want to accept the gospel.  It's cool because Maria Jose wants to accept the gospel. 

Surprise!!!!!  So Monday night, after we had planned all the cambios, the APs called us and told us we had cambios too!  Elder Meneses went to a place called La Union.  And my new companion is named Elder Hazard.  He is from Nevada.  He lives in Reno!!  But he doesn't know Aunt Carla.  Oh well, he has just over a year and a half in the mission so he will probably end here.  We get along great!  He is a really good elder.  He is tall!!!!  I didn't take any pictures but I will this week!  We are going to focus on finding people and helping the zone be more animated (excited in Spanish/English translation).  The elders in our house stayed the same, so that's cool. 

I was thinking and I don't know if I want to go on a vacation when I get back.  I just want to work and save money for school. :)  It would be good to work at the theater and then maybe I could get another job for the summer as well.  But we will see. 

Things are going really good!  I'm excited to be here in Villarrica.  The work is going really good.  It's our goal to talk to 140 people this week!!  It's going to be a good week!!!!!! :)
