Elder Dallin H. Oaks

Another super busy week here so sorry if this email/post sounds rushed! Tuesday we had a mini cambio and I went to Tomé to work with Elder Jaen (one of our Zone leaders) for the day. I was all ready to teach a whole bunch in Tomé but we told me in our district class that we have a big service activity. And I didn't pack any clothes for service... So I had to borrow some clothes from Elder Hoopes (our other Zone leader) and he`s pretty tell so I looked like a was wearing a dress haha but that's okay! So did the service activity and it killed our day because we finished around 7:30. After that we went to have a Noche de Hogar with a menos activos family and we recorded their testimonies and put them on Facebook! Hey everyone at home! You should do that!! It`s a great way to share the gospel with your friends!
Wednesday we had another mini cambio but just in Quirihue. I went with Elder Love again woooooooooo! It was a pretty good day but when we were in a lesson with Hna. Alicia we heard some loud crying and the next thing we know Hna. Erna is running up to the house and telling us to come with her. So her brother Sergio, one of our investigators, had fallen and hit his head, and seemed to be unconscious on the floor in her house. So we called the hospital and Hermano Miguel and I tried to get Sergio to wake up. It was a super scary 10 minutes but he woke up and started talking to us. He went to the hospital and nothing major was wrong and he was able to go home the next day with only a huge bump on his forehead.
Saturday we traveled to Chillàn to hear Elder Dallin H. Oaks speak to the missions of Chile. All the 300+ missionaries in our mission met there to listen. It was a little rough at first cause it was being broadcasted from Santiago through a Skype-like program and the signal wasn't the greatest. We weren't able to hear anybody through it, so we all the missionaries started to pray so that we could be able to hear from the apostle. And almost immediately 5 minutes later the signal was perfect and we were able to hear all of Elder Oaks`talk. I love prayer so much! It was also really awesome to see all of the missionaries that I haven't seen in awhile at the conference.
Sunday morning was pretty bad. We were getting the house/church ready for people to come and we were calling each of our investigators to reminds them about church. It was my turn to call so i called Hna Pilar first. Just a reminder that Hna Pilar has a baptismal date for this Saturday and she is super excited about. But when I asked her about church and she told me that she wasn't going to come and that she doesn't want to get baptized anymore. She didn't tell me why, just that she doesn't want to meet with us anymore. I felt really bad the rest of the day. It`s hard to teach someone and to have them progress so well, and then they just reject you. 
But that night we went to Hermana Erna`s house to have a Noche de Hogar with them but it turned out to be a mini birthday party for me! Yayyyy! It was pretty fun and it definitely helped me calm down from what happened in the morning, especially when I got my face stuffed in a cake haha. 
I hope everyone back home is doing great! I love and miss everyone! Have a great week!
