Elder Miyasaki's Message - 8-26-2013

Hello Friends and Family!
Well I just want to start off this email and tell you all that I love you all so much and that i miss you all like crazy! And thank you all so much for your support and all that you do for me, I really appreciate your love that you show me by sending me emails every week and also packages.
Bueno, this week was just an awesome week! We had a baptism this week and it went awesome. We baptized a girl named Elizabeth and she has 14 years! She is way cool and so funny. With that Miracle we also had another miracle. We also reactivated her family! Those 2 miracles are something very special for us. My kid was really excited to have his first baptism and my kid is just doing awesome, he is picking up the language really fast and he is a very spiritual kid and so i am so very excited for him and for that. During this past week we found out that our sector (Victoria 1 and 2) are leading the whole mission in baptisms this year for our mission. Since I got here in April we have had 14 baptisms and 11 were my investagaders, I promise i am not being prideful, i am just very happy about how much the lord has blessed us in my time here haha. But the work is more than awesome, i love it so much and i cant wait to see even more blessings from the lord that we can recieve. My kid and i are teaching a family right now that is just awesome. Their names are daisy and Javiera. Daisy is divorced and also has an older son that is in college. But Daisy and Javiera are just golden. They are so nice  and so spiritual. Please keep these 2 in your prayers so that they can get baptized! The work is so awesome and I love it so much!
SHOUT OUT TO SPRINGVILLE FOR WINNING THEIR FIRST GAME! That is so awesome, i am so glad to hear that they won. And it sounds like they are going to have a great year! It is also so crazy to hear that school has started again. It sounds like everything is going more than awesome back at home. I promise i will do my part here in Chile!
But i hope you all have such an awesome week and remember that i love you all so much. Espicially you mom! 
Les amo mucho y vaya con dios

Mi Familia!
¿Como estan mi amigos y familia? Pues hoy dia yo pudi escriber todo de este carta en español, pero porque les amo mucho yo voy a escriber todo de este carta en ingles. So this week has been a great week where we had a lot of great success. We put 4 baptismal dates during the week and we will be having a baptism this next saturday (24th) But we we are trying to do is load up all of our baptisms for the first week of september. My companion and I are getting along great. He is such a spiritual kid and he is learning more and more everyday! The members down here are mean sometimes and try to make him say things in spanish but hey they did the same thing to me haha. This week among the districts and in my zone we had the best numbers and the most success and so i was really happy that my district wanted to work so hard and that they really had a true desire to do the lords work. At times the missionaries dont really take me seriously because I have less time in the mission but its alright i guess. This past week we had all of our activities, and it was such a success!! Everyone loved the activities and the people that came to the activites came to church on sunday and that was obviously a great thing. Our most popular nights were Friday and Saturday. Friday we had our night of Mormon messages with sopipillas (The chilean version of scones) and Saturday when we had our Movie night, we watched monsters university and everyone loved it. But obviously the thing most important was Sunday. We had an awesome sacrament meeting where our Branch President, District President and Mission President all spoke. And WOW that was a really spiritual meeting!! We talked about the possibility of having a stake here in Victoria and so all the people here are really excited about that! But This week we have a lot of lessons that are really important to try to get these baptismal dates set in stone. I am really excited to have another great week and a week that in gonna be filled with a ton of spirit. Thank you all for your love and support and i know that you all would support and love me with whatever thing happens in my life! I am so incredibly blessed to have you in my life and to be a member of the only true church. I hope that you all have such an amazing week and that you will all be an instrument in the hands of the lord this week
Les amo mucho,

Mi familia!
Wow what a week it has been! This week was so awesome, On tuesday i went and got my son. His name is Elder Mundell, he is a greingo and he is from Miami florida, he is so cool and he has such a strong testimony about this church. It has been so fun to be train a greingo that doesnt know an incredible amount of spanish haha. But I Know that the lord is going to bless Elder Mundell a ton. And also this week was the first week for me to be a district leader, It was so fun, Pretty all i do is call my district everynight and recomend the things that they need to improve. I also have to have a weekly meeting and talk about the things that we can improve on and the things that we are doing well. I also have to talkk a ton of spanish which is pretty fun i guess haha. But i love it so much so i cant really complain. But the other day i was thinking about all of the things that the lord has blessed me with since I have been out here, and to be honest the blessing are so many! I know that the lord is blessing all of you guys back home and that is the thing most important to  me. I know that the lord truly does want what is best for us. But this week my kid and I made a goal that we are going to baptize 3 people this month and so we are just so excited to go and do this work and to bring souls to christ. We have 10 people that we are comfortable with and that we think can be basptized this month. They all have assistence in the past and so now its just getting them to come to church again. I feel really confidente that the lord is going to help us out during this time. And for the rest of this mission. 
This Sunday (11th) we have our conferencia de rama (Branch Conference) So this week everynight we are going to do an activity, Tonight we are doing a family home evening.
Tuesday: Yoga
Wednesday: Devocional
Thursday:Night of sports
Friday: Mormon Messages with scones
Saturday:Movie night
We are so excited for this week and all the blessing that are going to come. But really to all of you thank you so much for your support, it really means a ton, I can literrally feel your love through the emails.
