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

And upon these plates I write whats happening write now.

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

Wonder of Wonders, Miracle of Miracles

So this week was really cool. My companion and I were really excited to work for a full week and focus on our area. However some things happened and we had to spend a day in another city with some other missionaries one of the days. so we lost one day. However we worked really hard and on Saturday we committed 7 people to go to church. We even had members lined up to pick up the investigators. Sunday morning none of them show up. Not a single one. We were kind of depressed. However in the middle of sacrament one of our investigators showed up. He wasn`t actually one of the one we had committed either. So that was a cool miracle. If there is anything I have learned its that all the fruits come from god.

Also this morning I was studying in the book of Mormon, like the actual book inside the book. Bookception. Anyway Chapter nine is fantastic. In my studies right now I have been counting all the times it refers to Jesus, in any form. I was astounded by the amount of times this chapter testifies of the Lord Jesus Christ. I recommend that you read it because it was amazing.

Love you all.

We'll just pass by here really fast

May 29,2017

So this week was really cool. So on Tuesday we had cambios and were waiting for the two missionaries that are in our house. Both the missionaries that lived with us went to different houses so we waited for them to help them find there house and there church and stuff. Then on Wednesday we had a painting project with an hermano from the ward and as we were painting(the ceiling) one of the boarding's that I was painting fell right on my face. It weighed next to nothing so it didn`t hurt at all but it did cover my face with white paint. On Thursday we had interviews with president and that same afternoon we had to travel to Concepcion for some meetings. However President was going to Conce as well so he just took us with him and it was really cool. Friday we had a meeting and we got back really late. Saturday we visited as many people as we could and Sunday
as well. It was a really packed week. I had a bunch of fun though.

My comp and I are having a lot of fun with the new elders in our house. One is from Utah and he is Elder Hartgivsen, the other is from Alaska and his name is Elder Ziemer. We had a load of fun today as we cooked and did stuff in the house.

Love you all a bunch.

La semana de cambios

May 22, 2017

Transfer week. The week in which all of the missionaries are really stressed out to know what is going to happen. I personally have stopped

caring a bit because I don`t find it to be a bother.

However I have to announce that: I am staying with Elder Sanchez. In Alemania. It is pretty cool. We are really excited because we are working with a couple investigators who are progressing a lot and we are pretty sure that they will be baptized this transfer. However at the same time we are sad. Not for ourselves but because the other missionaries in our house are both leaving. We really got a long with them well. We always made sopaipillas on Mondays. One had been there six months and the other is just going to a different ward in this same stake. The new missionary who is coming to our house is going to train and it is going to be so fun messing around with him/ teaching him new things. I am really excited for this.

Oh and for those of you who were maybe wondering I return in August, like the 12th or something like that. 

I would love to hear from you all.

This is Elder Morales and Elder Mecham.
We call Elder Morales Lucho.

Como que no voy a creer en Dios

May 15 2017

This week we were privileged to be participants in the baptism of Nolberto. He is 87 and is really funny. He read the whole book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of great Price. Whenever we go over he tells us a really long story and then ends saying after that experience who am I not going to believe in God. He just is awesome. Pictures to follow.

We were also really blessed to be able to Skype with our beloved mothers this week. It was really great. Time really does fly. It was weird to think that this would be the last one here in Chile. Funny story with that. So as we were getting everything ready I was having trouble with the microphone. We decided to run over to an investigator close to the house we were doing Skype in to get a different microphone. We get there and see a tv screen through the curtains. We shout ( they shout here they don`t really knock that much). He doesn`t come to the door. We try speaking to him through the window pane and he says "I'm eating." we then shout to explain the situation and he finally lets us in and lends us his microphone. We then run back and Skype without difficulty.

That is about all. 

Love you all.

Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith.

I´m a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it.

Choose the right.

True to the faith.

Return with Honor.

The holy Ghost goes to bed at midnight.

Oh and those strange faces at the baptism are the assistants. They decided to come and visit us.

So this week was really cool. We had a fair bit of traveling to do and some meetings in Concepcion and then we worked in our sector for the rest of the week basically.

So when we traveled to Concepcion we stayed with a bunch of other missionaries in an apartment complex. We woke up and we played soccer with all of the missionaries for our morning exercise and it was really cool. There is one missionary who was playing bare foot. No surprise because he is Brazilian and they are crazy for soccer. Then latter in the day we had a wonderful meeting with president and we all really felt the spirit in the meeting. It was wonderful.

This week we also worked with the other missionaries in our house. It was great. I was with Elder Morales. He is from Provo. Then on Saturday we had a church open house. It was cool but it rained a lot so no one came. We only had three people go through. it was all good though. 

Angol is pretty cool.

Lots of Love,
