Happy 4th of July!!!!!

It was hard but actually really cool that I was able to teach!:) haha I love talking in Spanish but it is still difficult for me, I definitely have a long way to go but it is coming.

Well last week was definitely a crazy week!! We had a lot of success in finding people and teaching people! We have 16 nuevos which means 16 new investigators and so we are going to hopefully have lots of lessons! And as for Carlos he is progressing really well we set a baptism date for him!!!!!! It’s not until the 6th of August because he has surgery but I’m so psyched for him!!! Also we have another city in our sector called Licán Ray and we have only knocked doors in this area for like 4 hours and already have 3 families we are meeting with!!! So definitely keeping busy and not to mention trying to learn Spanish during all this... haha. But tell everyone thank you so much (everyone who asks about him) and that I am doing very well. Also yes we eat with a member here his name is (santo papito) haha no its just Pato, but he is really cool and cooks awesome food!! Also he has hedgehogs!! (there is a photo of him in here:) )​

I’m glad you are enjoying your new work!! I tried to look up your work but I’m not really sure what they do. What exactly does you work do there? Also CJ said you have an executive membership to TOP GOLF???????? Me and Elder Thomas looked that place up and danggggg! that place looks so dope!!! I hope you still have that when I get back...;) haha no but that is sweet and I’m glad you are loving it.:)

You will have to send me lots of pics from the 4th and videos also.:) but that is so sweet you were able to go to the temple!! I love temples so much and I can’t wait till the one in Concepcion is built. I hope they let us go see it... haha:) but have fun today and BE SAFE. Tell Chad to blow stuff up for me haha.

That sounds like a really good lesson you had in church!! That’s what I wanted to tell you about today is following the promptings of the spirit and having the faith to do so.:) Because on Sunday (yesterday) we did divisions and I went and taught with Max. In the first lesson we invited Carlos to be baptized and he was so excited. But in our original plan we weren’t going to ask him that day but I felt it was right. Then after I had a feeling to visit one of our investigators who is never home on the weekends but when we went, she was there!!!!:) So we taught her (Geraldine) a short lesson and we are going back today!! She is catholic but she really seems interested in our church so we will see how she feels tonight.:) And don’t worry I’ll keep going and never give up!!! JUST DO IT haha.

Love you mama and once again thank you so much for all you do.:) Stay safe and I hope all is well at home. Talk to you next week!:)

Love, Elder Spencer (Shawners)

P.S. Hey those the pics I sent (below) were from our zone p-day party today!!:) We played sports and watched Inside Out!!!! haha and we had hot dogs!!!:) And the hedgehog is Patos. The mom had babies this week!!!:) Today was a fun day in all and it was fun to watch a Disney movie in Spanish haha.:) But have you seen Finding Dory yet?? I’ve heard it is so cool!!:)

  4. Thank you for sharing his blog with me. He writes so much more detail than my son that I've learned a lot out this area and the work they are doing. Love his pictures as well. So glad our sons are working together!

    1. Me too (on the working together part)!! When our older son was on a mission I always tried to find his companion blogs for the same reason. You always learn a lot more about what's going on that way :)
