Week 72 – Almendroza, Chile

Hey guys,

This week was absolutely awesome.

So to start off, on Tuesday, to prepare for the Elder Christofferson conference, we had a conference with the whole mission!!!! It was awesome.  We had to travel to Rancagua with the zone, to the stake center there.  Then we took pics and we had lunch together with all the mission. I saw all my friends from the mission!  Then we started our fast and we had a training from Pres and Hermana Harris. We talked about what it means to take upon us our cross. Also we talked about Christofferson’s talk from this past General conference. It was a great training.

After the conference, all the missionaries who weren’t from Rancagua went to stay with members for the night, because we were going to leave early the next morning. We stayed with Familia Cabezas from Ward Cachapoal. They were super nice. Then we got up early to go San Bernardo.  We took big rental buses there.

When we got there, we had to sit on one side of the chapel, and mision Santiago Sur sat on the other side! So then we just waited in there, until Elder Christofferson arrived. When he got there, also was there Elder Bragg, who had come to our mission a few months before, and then we got to shake everyone’s hands. The conference itself was just great! The mission presidents and their wives spoke.  They started off with their testimonies and then Elder Bragg shared a message about the Book of Mormon! Super great!

Then Elder Christofferson finished with just an awesome training. He really is a prophet of god. He’s also kinda a jokester, too, haha. He told a lot of jokes, but everything he shared really was inspired, and through the spirit. Also, he always used the scriptures to explain everything. Just a great great conference.

Afterwards, I was able to say hi to Matt Hendrix!!!  We didn’t get to talk too much because we had to go so fast, but we took some pics (also, Dad, Matt’s crazy comp says hi, ha ha).

So that was definitely the highlight of the week. Also we got changes, and I’m staying another change here in Santa Cruz, but I get a new comp, Elder Chavez. He was my zone leader when I was in Peor es Nada. He’s super dope. He’s got one change more than me, and he’s from Arizona, but his parents are from Mexico. It’s going to be great. Excited to keep working here.

Anyways, love you guys. Have a great week.
