Alex's 93rd email from Chile 5/28/12

Snow capped Andes

Hola Familia!!

This week has been a good one. We have been working hard. First Off I have finished Doctrine and Covanants and the Pearl of Great Price in Spanish!! I feel very accomplished if you cannot tell. So as a final thingy I have read the Book of Mormon 5 times 2 in English and 3 in Spanish the Bible once cover to cover in Spanish and now D&C and Pearl of Great Price in Spanish! It really is neat to just learn so much more about the church and doctrine we live daily. I have grown so much while on the mission in terms of the knowldge of the gospel.

But ya, This week we found an awesome investigator Lorena. She is the mom of the scientific dude. But she is awesome we had even taught about the Book of Mormon and she started asking about it when we taught her excactly what it was. She was like "Wow, I want to read that book." So we gave her one and she said "Really? this is mine? Thank you soo much!" Awesome!!! Cristobal is progressing amazingly everytime we go over he understands more and more.

Heads UP next monday I will not write because we had our Pday changed to Tuesday for our zone activity we planned we are going to an interactive science museum :)

On Friday We had a sweet missionary activity that we planned. We had all of the returned missionaries come and bring their pictures and souvenirs and what not where the rest of the ward could come share stories it was actually really cool. I loved it. a dude brought his suit from the mission where it had all of these holes and he brought his socks and everything it was really funny but awesome everyone loved it. While we were setting up a fatty table fell on my toe it killed!!!

Ward missionary activity

Cool news,  Rocio is going to the temple for the first time to do baptisms for the dead!! And I may get permission to go! But we don't know yet we are waiting for President King to respond.

Lucas is awesome Cristobal should get baptized like the 17th of June, President said Karting was fine well the Assistents did so it works. Marcos is getting better still in the hospital but he is doing better. The seagull trophy is from the festival of ViƱa it is huge! And they give out seagull trophies there. I sang like a part of some Backstreet Boys song haha. The weather has been crazy it has been raining the last 3 days straight! Today it has let up but its been cool the Andes are all snow capped. The zone is good.

More snow capped Andes

But ya sorry this is short. I had to do goals for the zone and everything. Ok guys I love you all and I will talk to you next week.

Con Mucho Amor,

Elder Alex Leavitt
