Wow this week was awesome! The Lord sure has blessed us here in Rawson with some awesome investigators with righteous desires and with member willing to so some work!

Well I guess I will start off with our baptism that we had on Friday. Gonzalo was baptized and it was a great experience. I was able to enjoy it a little more this time because I wasn´t all flustered and everything because I had already gone through the process. But man it was an awesome day. When somebody gets baptized its really hard to explain what its like. Its like a high because you just want more after you get one. It was really special because Gonzalo was able to be baptized by one of his friends Ema. (In the picture it goes: Me, Ema, Gonzalo, Elder Rivera). It was sweet. And on Sunday Gonzalo was confirmed. That was also a really special experience. I´m so glad I was able to help Gonzalo. He is really excited about being a member and wants to do what he can to get closer to the Lord. He is also really excited to get the priesthood next week so he can pass that sacrament. That will be awesome!

Man this week was really awesome. Elder River and I reached the estandarte of the mission this week! Last time when we were really close, we needed to more in sacrament meeting, but yesterday we had 10! And of those 10, 9 of them where there for the full 3 hours. That is almost unheard of for a lot of missionaires. Man I am so greatfull because now all these 10 investigators have taken giant steps in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am really excited to teach these investagators this week to see how they all felt in sacrament. Man I can not express how greatfull I am fo the help of the Lord in our work here. It has been amazing.

So another really awesome thing this week. We had a really good lesson with Fernanda and Gustavo and he said that he would be baptized this coming week Saturday. Fernanda Gustavo and their two sons Tomas and Facundo all came to church on Sunday and I think they all had a really good experience. I don´t know if I mentioned it but Gustavo is the son of Hermano Chemin our mission leader. So that will be a very special day. We are hoping that Tomas will have the desire to be baptized along with his dad. We are going to talk to them tonight and I´m sure that it is going to go really well. I´m really excited for that.

We were also able to find some really amazing investigators this week. We found Soledad, who has a daughter that has down syndrome. She has a strong testimony of Jesus Christ so we are excited to teach her. We also found Sonia. She has cancer right now and is a little down on life. We were able to teach about Jesus Christ and the plan of savation and she really liked it. We were able to put a baptismal date with her for the 14 of July. We found Beatriz who is having some marriage problems right now and is having a really dificult time. We had a lesson with her Silvia, and Virginia who is a member. We talked about the atonement of Jesus Christ. Beatriz came to church and had a really good experience so that is wonderful. I love finding new people to teach. Its always nice to have a lot of work. But its really dificult as well but much better than not having a lot of work.

Well hopefully this week will be as good as the last. We just gotta keep on working hard and we will keep all this great things going. I am so greatfull for this work. Its the best thing ever. I love you all and hope you have a great week!

Con cariño,
Elder Kyle Hudgins

Gonzalo with the family. Now I also have some really bad news… I dropped my camera and it doesn´t work anymore. For right now I don´t know what I can do but I´m going to try to see if there is somewhere I can go to repair it. I sure hope so.
