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.

June 15th, 2015

Hey fam!

This week was good!  The work has been going good.  Luis is doing great.  He sold his house so he will leave to Santiago on July 16 or 17.  It has been cool to share with him he has changed a lot.  He quit drinking and he has practically quit smoking!  We didn't really know if we should baptize him here or if he should just do it in Santiago.  So we prayed about it and decided that it would be better for him to wait until Santiago.  I hope everything goes great for him; I know he will be a good member.  Maria Jose was sick yesterday so she couldn't come to church.  Luis came, so that was good.

Maria Jose is really cool.  She started reading the Book of Mormon from the beginning.  She had a close friend die in a car accident the other day so we gave her a blessing.  It was neat because when we went into her house I felt like I was going to give her a blessing.  We shared with her and then at the end she told us about her friend and all that was going on and how she felt.  So Max, our ward mission leader, told her about blessings and she said she wanted one.  Then she asked me to do it.  It was neat because I already knew I was going to do it.  The spirit is awesome.  The blessing felt really good.  Max is a great lider misional.  He just went to the temple recently.  He has only been a member for a year but is awesome.  Max leaves with us all the time to work!

We have been slacking off with contacts a little so we have tons of goals and plans to help us do contacts!

The Zone is really good.  We have seen lots of change for the better.  Everyone is working harder and things are just getting better!  I think this next combio they will baptize lots!  It has been a really good cambio.

I can't believe it, but it's still raining!  Haha, when I get home all my stuff is going to smell like smoke and mold!  But I have gotten used to being wet all day!  I've gotten to be a fire builder/starter expert!  Haha.
I have thought time has flown my whole mission but now it's really flying!  Haha, I can't believe it.
I thought that was pretty cool.

I found this quote reading the conference.

"One cannot forget mother and remember God.  One cannot remember mother and forget God.  Why?  Because these two sacred persons, God and (our earthly) mother, partners in creation, in love, in sacrifice, in service, are as one."
                                       -Thomas S. Monson

I thought that was pretty cool.  Thanks Mom.

Love you Family!  Don't be too Trunkie! ;)

Elder Robertson
