Hermana Daly~October 12, 2009...Futbol craze!

Hola familia!!I just got back from playing beach volleyball…super fun!!! I´m afraid I burned my poor little face, but it was worth it. I love the beach…refreshes the missionary body and spirit haha. Well big news of the week: Chile is going to Mundial, o sea, Chile´s soccer team is going to the world futbol tournament! Not that I needed to watch the game to know…the streets were empty for two hours with shouts and screams every so often…four big shouts to be exact with the four goals that were made against Columbia haha. Afterward there were parties all night long and all day…with BBQs and fireworks and a few people that wanted to kill me companion or make fun of her for being from Columbia. Pretty funny and crazy haha. Oh Chile and it´s craze for soccer. On the spiritual side…Carmen and Alvaro, our star investigadors, are continuing to progress. We taught Alvaro the Word of Wisdom because he needs to quit smoking. We made posters with motivational quotes and scriptures and a calendar to mark so he can quit. We have lots of faith in him, so we hope to see a baptism in a few weeks. He has really progressed from having no religious background to wanting to go to Church and learning. Carmen is way spiritual and is great! Having tons of spiritual experiences and help from the ward. So it´s been great working with them!We have a new mission focus to grow in Christ-like virtues and apply what we learned in General Conference. I love mission focuses because they motivate us to do better. The mission goal is that each companionship has four baptisms by the end of the year. We need to purify ourselves through virtues, striving for the spirit and Heavenly Father´s help, so that we can teach with power and authority and find those ready to hear the Gospel. So we continue forth, striving to better ourselves, the mission, and Chile! Love you all tons!!! Have a great week…and keep enjoying all the new baby fun:) -Hermana Daly
