¡Hola from the land of never ending rain!
Well I think I mentioned this last week, but winter has officially begun here in Chile. What does that mean you may ask? Well that means that we haven't seen the sun much this past week and my umbrella is finally getting a lot of use. The good news is that I am finally a master fire builder and can do it in about ten minutes each morning (have I mentioned that we heat our houses with log burning stoves here?) which makes life a heck of a lot easier.
This has been another fantastic week for us down here. Best news of the week...Vicky is getting baptized this month! She picked her own date for the 27th of June because it is her birthday and we were able to talk to her mom yesterday and she said that it was ok with her and that she would get the dad to sign to give Vicky permission. She is so awesome and has so much desire to follow Jesus Christ and be baptized. Patricio is also doing well, he won't be getting baptized this week just yet but we will still be working there. I believe he will be baptized within the month of June.
I'm starting to really enjoy my assignment as district leader. It was really great to see the progress of our entire district this last week. We were able to almost double each of our key indicators as a district this last week which was really exciting. I had my first district meeting this week and we talked about having faith in the promises of the Lord. In the scriptures and in Preach my Gospel He gives us so many promises based on our own faithfulness. All that we have to do is do our best to fulifll our part and trust that He will do His. Many times we may not see the results right away but He always completes with His promises. I know that the Lord has been helping me to be able to fulfill these responsibilities.
Thanks everyone for your support, it really means a lot to me. Hope you all have a great week!
Love, Elder Dower
