Changes again

 Chilean BBQ
 Elder Middleton ( new Companion ) and Elder Thompson

 Elder Thompson, ward member , Elder Spencer, Elder Romero ( a favorite ) and Companion ELder MIddleton ( from Canada)


1. how is my new campanion.... he is great. He is really serious, and
well as you know Im not 100 percent of the time. But we have figured
it out. And now our seriousness and my Ryaness works well together.

2. What strengths does he bring.... he is very concious about the
ward, and he is always looking for more ways to be more involed and
work more closely with the ward.

3. Are the people preparing for christmas here... yes... they all have
their lights up and everything... but honestly, I feel like i should
be having my birthday soon... I dont really like having a hot
christmas. So its still a little weird for me.

4. Any special foods.... they people have really changed it up here
and have started giving us Chicken and rice, instead of Rice and
chicken... I swear when I get home  I dont ever want to eat that
again!!! Hahah but really, They have this thing called Pan de Pascua.
Which means Christmas bread... and it is exactly like fruit cake...
and its SOOOO GROSS!!!!! But everyone eats it and gives it to

5. What helped me be the best missionary that I can be this week.... I
feel like it was the talk that I read by President Uchtdorf, it
litteraly changed my entire week, and how I think and act.

It's been awhile ...

 Elder Spencer was transferred to his 3rd Area in the Javieria Carrera Ward. He is companions with Elder Turner and they will be serving as Zone Leaders together
What is the atonement of Jesus Christ?
His suffering, and the moment he died?
yes that’s part, but so much more,
the atonement of Christ, it covers the floor.
From wall to wall, the roof to the ground,
The atonement of Christ, is for the world around.
For you for me, for him for her.
For Every sin, for every hurt.
He suffered for you, he suffered for me
He suffered for everyone, on bended knee.
"Lord not mine, but thy will be done"
He suffered he bled, and there he hung.
But then something amazing, on day three
He rose again for you, for me.
He is our savior, or Lord, The Christ,
The only one worthy to pay the price.
He is my brother, my hero, my friend,
The only one truly with me, till the very end.
Im forever in debt,
But you can sure bet,
That my life will be different,
Because of that night,
When he bowed his head,and gave us a chance to fight.
Through his grace we are saved after all we can do...
So with every choice, lets think it through.
God knew it would happen, that we´d all mistake,
But through his son, the chains of hell we can break.
Because of him, the "HOLY ONE"
When I get there he´ll say "My son, well done".

One year ago!

" One thing
that I have learned here in the mission, is that there is power and
protection in Prayer. Just like if something happenes we want to go
and talk to Mom and Dad, we should also remember that we have a
Heavenly Father that wants to help us, and hear about what is going on
in our lives. So we must always remember him."
 One year ago we sent  this barely 18 year old to Santiago Chile to become a missionary
 Today he has grown in faith , testimony , experience, humility and so much more ....
Elder Spencer and Elder Romero, a trainer, a district leader and white washing his new area!

Ready for the Challenge!

 A few goodbyes to the Bishop's family and favorite little Friends Rodri and Elli and new baby sister
 the Valenzuela Family
 New" Greenie"  Elder Romero from Argentina     :  "my phone rang... I looked at it, and it said "Assistant
1"... I answered it and Elder Laurentino started out by saying "Elder
Spencer, the Lord trusts in you very much. And he has given you a very
large responsability for this change... The Lord has called you to be
a district leader, and Train, in a White wash..." I am pretty sure
that Elder Johnson had to shut my mouth for me.....

so yeah, White wash train... Wedensday comes around, and We met as a
misión to get changes, we were all in the stake center, president
called our each companionship... I am now with Elder Romero... From
Argentina Cordoba. And he is awesome!!!! He is 19, and the first
misionary in his family.. but the thing is, he is amazing at soccer.
He played profecionally, and was going to play for one of the best
teams in argentina, and then he recieved his ticket to go and play,
and his misión call on the same day. Dropped all of his soccer planes,
and is now here... it was a huge testimony builder for me."

Its been a wonderful year with the Wrights !

Well this isn't right ....DAS BUCH MORMON??? in CHILE ???

 Trip to the Zoo

 A Scripture that helped me stay focused... Philemon 1:21 it says "I have written you with confidence in your obedience, knowing that you will do more than I say." I love this verse, and makes me think if people can say the same about me? if the Lord can say that about me? .....

A day in the life of a missionary in Chile

 Tender mercies... I think would be the patience that I have been able to develop. Through studying my patriartichal blessing  I am able to ask myself, "am i doing all I can to bring to pass the blessings in my partriartichal blessing" and I am able to start to see it happen in my life.
oh just a delivery  donkey selling milk cartons
 Elder Spencer loves his MATTE
 Well a bus took a wrong turn evidently

 Elder Spencer's Mission President will be released  July 1
 Santiago, Chile Temple
 how do I respond to the spirit? ... Most of the time it is just like the first Idea that comes to my mind. And like Elder Bednar says, to find out we must act... so alot of times its in a situation, like, "where should we go to contact?" and we end up going to the first place that comes to mind, and find a woman, who needs help carrying groceries, and things like that. But there was one time where I felt like I was not succeding at anything. We had 1 investigator, no one was coming to church, and I felt like I wasnt doing anything... and I remember praying and asking for help, And for the fist time in my life I heard, "Ryan, I will always help you because I love you, you just have to ask" and from that moment on, I feel like I have been more intune to the spirit, and what The lord wants me to do.
