Hasta el Fin.

July 31, 2017

Wow! What a week. We had the chance to do an exchange with our district leader this week. It was really great. I got to work in his area with his companion. We saw so many miracles. It was really great. I felt really great because I was able to work with Elder Jones from Idaho. I told him we might be related but I am not sure. We were able to find some new investigators in their area and they were really cool. I feel really odd about finishing because I feel that there is still so much more work to be done but my time has run out. It helps to see the new missionaries who are just coming into the field because it gives you hope that the work keeps going after you get released.

This week should be a really great one. I will send pictures afterward but watch out because it is going to be great. It is starting to warm up a little down here and it hasn`t rained in a couple of days so that's cool. 

Really excited to hear from you all or see you soon.

                            Los Angeles Sur and north and angol... meeting of district leaders   

So this week was spectacular. First well it didn`t start that spectacular but it got a lot better. I kind of burnt my hand a little bit while making sopaipillas. However after that we went and we taught a bunch of people. The next day, Tuesday, We had a meeting and then we worked with some other elders and it was really great. We were able to teach several people and it helped out a bunch. Wednesday we did something else. I don`t really remember but it was probably really awesome. Thursday I was in another missionary exchange and it was really cool. I worked with an elder from Paradise, California. His name is Elder Lighthall and we had some of the funniest door contacts in my mission. Also this week most of our investigators were gone for vacations of for work so we were able to spend a lot more time organizing our area and getting to know less active members. It was pretty cool because Elder Carrascal is really organized and has a lot of skill in using the area book. I feel really blessed to be his companion. Anyway on Sunday we had one of the people we are teaching come to church. He is nine years old and his mom is a member who is recently coming back to church. So they had planned to go to just sacrament but Facu, the son, had made a friend from the member family that comes with us to visit them and the member family´s son brought our investigator straight to primary right when sacrament finished. It was great.

Well Lots of love. Next week I will send a lot of pictures but I forgot to bring my camera today.

The change, the trip, and the popcorn.

July 10, 2017
This week I will tell you about three things. The change as in my change of companion. He is Elder Carrascal from bogota Columbia. He is great and we are going to see miracles. Working overtime all the time.

The trip. This week we traveled a lot. To Concepcion for a meeting, to Renaico to see a baptism, to Collipulli to see a baptism it is a lot of traveling but totes worth it.

The popcorn. Nada que ver. There is nothing to do with popcorn. I just wanted to put it in the title.

Love ya´ll,

Elder Miller

So some pretty cool things have been happening here in Angol. This week I have been with Elder Glach and it has been fantastic. He is a convert and a year after being baptized he left on his mission. It has been real.

However recently we found out what the transfers are and I am pretty excited because things are returning to normal here in Angol. My new companion is Elder Carrascal. He is from Colombia and he is really cool. Glad to report as well that Elder Glach is getting his companion as well and can now return to his ward full time.  We also had a activity this morning with a lot of the missionaries in the zone. It was raining so we didn`t want to do it in the church but the whole zone is elders so we just decided to have the activity in our house. We borrowed a grill from a member nearby and just grilled stuff for the fourth of July. It was great. I made potato salad.


Basically we are all just really excited for everything that is going on.

Love Elder Miller

So last week on Monday night president gave us a little curve ball. We were just doing our thing and then president calls and asks to meet with us in our house. We start thinking to remember if we did anything wrong. Maybe he was going to bring us a dryer because we are going to be getting those soon or who knows what. Anyway he gets there and asks to talk with my companion in private. I just stay in the other room with his wife and take the time to show here how to prepare a traditional drink called mate and then after a while president and my companion come out and he tells me. Well I have decided to call your companion as my assistant. Hope you don`t mind. He will be coming up this week. I just think. "Bueno, it is the lords will."

Anyway right now I am with Elder Glach from Colorado. He is really cool He is a convert of 2 years. He has one year in the mission. He is just really cool. Also he is a writer and does a lot of cool stuff. I am with him because he didn`t have a companion either and we were just two orphans in the zone. Right now we are covering the two wards and we are having loads of fun. 

Next week we should be getting our real companions but for the mean time we are just doing our own little thing down here.

Lots of love,

Elder Miller

A Father and a brother

June 19, 2017

So this week we had a whole bunch of things going on and it was great. Tuesday we had really awesome district meetings. I am constantly impressed with the district leaders that we have here in the zone. Wednesday we had a really wonderful day. We were just packed with appointments and even though there was like torrential rain we were out there going from house to house. I will be sending pictures. Thursday it continued raining and we traveled early to Los Angeles for a multi zone conference. It was really cool. In the conference president explained the following:

Jesus in the scriptures is often refereed to as our Father. This is not to say the he is Heavenly Father, the being in which we pray to but it does refer to us being born again in Jesus. For example there is a scripture in Mosiah that says he is the father and the son, It is where Abinadi is talking and explaining about Jesus. However we need to understand that First God our Heavenly Father is the Creator, the great Arquitect. God the Son is Jesus Christ a separate entity and being with a body of flesh and bone like unto the father. God the Holy Spirit, The Holy Ghost, Whatever he is called in English I don`t remember, He is a spirit and has no body if it were not so he could not dwell within us. Lesson for other time. We are talking about how one of the titles of Jesus is Father (Fathers day so I am talking about this.) So Jesus is out brother in the sense that he a spirit Child of our Heavenly Father and he came to this earth to receive his mortal body. However he is our Father because we make a covenant with him and take upon his name. We are "Born again" with his name. As it explains in Mosiah 5:And now, because of the covenant which ye have made ye shall be called the children of Christ, his sons, and his daughters; for behold, this day he hath spiritually begotten you; for ye say that your hearts are changed through faith on his name; therefore, ye are born of him and have become his sons and his daughters.
And under this head ye are made freeand there is no other head whereby ye can be made free. There is no other name given whereby salvation cometh; therefore, would that ye should take upon you the name of Christ, all you that have entered into the covenant with God that ye should be obedient unto the end of your lives.

So example of how this works. My name is Kelton Miller. My fathers name is Keith Miller. I have his last name because I am his son. I have a sister who is married. Her name is now ends with Taylor instead of Miller because she has made a promise or if you would a covenant with her spouse and she has taken his name. As we make covenants with Christ we take upon his name. That is also why many times in the scriptures he is refered to as the bridegroom. In order to get into heaven we need to have the name of Christ. In essence Christ is our Father and we are his spiritual Children 

Love you bunches
