Week 19 New Transfer

This is what Elder Rabow sent us this week;

Ya I don´t have any time like normal, but things are great here. So many things happen this last week where do I even start. first I am in a new sector. It is in the same district that I was in before. that almost never happens, but it feels almost exactly the same. It´s called El Rocio. My companion, Elder Hunsaker, I knew before we were companions. Hes from Orem. I am super excited for this change. I don´t even know what to say about this week, but i guess Ill share an experience. So we have an investigador that hasn't drank for five months and two days ago we found him in the street completely drunk. We feel like we llost our best investigator. I hope everything works out with him, but I feel like we lost him... please put him in your prayers..other than that not much happened. jaja. Just super busy and I never have time for anything. I love you guys so much and hope you have a great week.

Christmas 2016

Elder Rabow had a great week around Christmas!! Lots of food at a members house!! Here are a few things he told us and some pictures of his activity!

Sorry I haven´t written in a couple weeks I have been super busy on Mondays..but ya here we are. First off, Merry Christmas. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and really remembered the reason we celebrate it. Christ. (it´s in the name) He came to world to be the light for us to follow and help us through the hard time. He is always there with open arms when we need him. I am so grateful for the chance to be in the mission over the holidays. This Christmas meant a lot more to me because of how I have grown to know who Christ really is. He has been there for me through the hardest times and the best times too. He is there for all of us.
I had a great week and ate more food than I have the rest of my mission. Also we have an investigator named Rodrigo. He is the most humble man, but has a bad addiction with alcohol. Put him in your prayers. I am so grateful for the chance to teach him and help him. He will be baptized sí o sí. Estoy muy agradecido por cada uno de ustedes. Tengan una buena semana y un buen año nuevo. Les quiero (I am very grateful for each one of you. Have a good week and a good new year. I love you all)

Week 11 through Week 19

This will be a summary of all the weeks due to Elder Rabow not having a lot of time to write


Bueno. This week went by crazy slow. We taught so many people..20 lessons in one other areas of our zone that a months worth of lessons.  A few of these lessons were to this family. Oh questions Bueno. Their names are Claudio  (Elder papa), Juanita  (la madre), and Ignacio (Elder hijo). They are super great. Right now they have a date for their baptism the 4th of December. It is a little hard to find time to teach them because Claudio is always working.  They are progressing so fast. Algo chistoso about Ignacio. We always run into him on the bus and he was with this girl (actually a member) and we were giving him a hard time about his "friend....a ver... quotas la let de castidad... the next lesson.. jaja.(LOL) But ya this family is awesome  I can't wait to see them at the temple all in white in a little over a year. I am super excited for them.

Week 10

The mission is great. I don't have any time to write como simpering, (like always), but here's some pictures from the week. These are posted on my facebook under Nicholas Rabow. My Mom tagged me on Week 10 pictures. Here are some fun things that Elder Rabow sent us this week;
Singing in Spanish is the only way to do it. I can't even remember hymns in English. We got some candy for Halloween Dulces o Trabasauras? (Sweets or work?) jaja. I wouldn't have been able to understand my email either in the CCM. I have learned so much Spanish, de Hecho, (in fact) I am starting to forget English. Everything is great. The hills here aren't even big. If I go to Valpo, the hills are horrible, but I am just so happy here in my mission.

Week 9

It was a great week. I am so happy in the mission. I don't have much time to write this week, but when do I ever.  I have never walked this much in my life, but it is great. The weather is just like Utah.. it could be freezing in the morning, blazing hot in the afternoon and later rain a little. Super unpredictable, but I love it. I am starting to forget English a little. I love Spanish. It is so much easier now to understand and I feel like I can actually communicate. The fast food is alright, but everything is so big. I ate a complete the size of my arm and a hamburger the size of my face....jaja. I love my mission, it is the best decision I could have ever made in my life.

Les quiero,
Elder Rabow

Week 8

Buena. This week flew by. I don't even know where the time goes. First off, un chiste, there's these trucks here in Chile. They take the gas for people's houses around and they play kid's music, so that you can know they are there. It is hilarious because everytime I hear one I say that is an ice cream truck. This week we had a baptism. It was one of the niños in our branch. I am so grateful to the Lord for blessing me with the opportunity to be here in this sector and for all the miracles I have seen. 

Spiritual thought for the week. Everyone is converts, not to the church, but to the Lord. Try to remember the first time you felt his love for you specifically. We are all truly sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, and he knows and loves each of us individually.

Tengan una buena semana, les quiero. 
Elder Rabow

Week 7

Things are great. This week has flown by. We have been searching really hard for investigadores. Tracking everywhere & we stop and talk to every person that we see. Planting as many seeds as we can. We may not see the fruit from our week, but the important thing is that we are putting our full effort in. It was a great week. I guess I'll introduce you guys to Helio y Jessica. They are from Brasil, como mi companero. It is hard because they like to talk to him in Portuguese and I don't understand anything. It sucks, but they are awesome. They want to get baptized, but there need to get married first and they can't get married in Chile, because they don't have their Visas yet. We are praying that they get here soon, if not, eventually they will enter the gate to eternal happiness. Things are great here. Remember we are all Children of our Heavenly Father and he loves us and wants to hear from us. Pray every night and keep your head up. Tengan una buena semana. Les quiero.
