Compania #3


I would like to wish everybody a late happy new year and I hope you all passed it chancho. 
Things are great here in Compañia....We had changed today and.....ELDER LARSEN AND I ARE COMPANIONS AGAIN!!!!!  For those of you who dont remember, he was my comp from the MTC.  We are still in a trio with Elder Whitmer but he is going to be heading out pretty soon to Salt lake but we arent sure when. 
Our new years eve was great.  We had a great view of the fireworks here in downtown Santiago.  They were shooting fireworks that made flowers and smiley faces in the sky.  Its crazy to think thats its already 2012...The world will be ending this year haha NOT.  Its crazy how fast the time has been flying here and the things Ive learned. 
This last week we were able to find quite a few new investigators.  Some of them are referrals from members and others just came from knocking the 20 houses that we have in our sector.  We found one kid named Bastian.  He´s 14 years old and has a lot of interest in the Book of Mormon.  We started off the contact getting to know him a little bit and then we talked about the BOM.  He said that he wanted one to read so we went inside and taught him about what it was and where it came from.  We left 3 Nephi 11 for him to read and the next day, to our surprise, he had read the chapter and understood it very well.  He told us of his desires to know the truth and that he definately feels something different with us.  A lot of our investigators werent able to go to church this week due to the holiday.  Marcelo came to church again out here and said that hes planning on moving out here so that he can get baptized.  We are working on finding him a place to live right now and hóopefully everything comes out alright. 
Thats about it for me this week...Have a great week eveyrbodyª
Love Elder PEck
