Christmas Tidings

Hey team! How are you all doing? Are you guys just so pumped for Christmas? I know that I am. 

This week we had a family home evening in the chapel. We did karaoke. I learned two things. 
  1. I can't sing. 
  2. I especially can't sing songs that are written in Spanish and that I have never heard before. 
But it was really fun. And I beatboxed into the microphone and the president of the quorum started breakdancing. That was really cool.

I hope that this Christmas season we can do something to remember the Savior a little more. I know that sometimes there is a lot of stress this time of year. But if we remember the Savior, we will know that everything will work out in the end. Because he came to this earth, lived, died, and was resurrected, all of us have access to the atonement. Please remember that this Christmas Season. We are never alone. There is someone who knows us perfectly. I love you guys. I testify that Jesus Christ Lives.

Have a great week!

Zone Meeting, FTW!

Hey team! How are you all doing? Im doing so good!

This week we went up to do divisions with some other Elders in Caleta Olivia. It was pretty cool. I went up to Comodoro with my comp so he could go to the dentist. Always brush your teeth. It's important.

Then after that we had our zone meeting. It was so good! I really love our zone here. We are really tight. One of our zone leaders talked about winning the day. I really liked it. Every single day that we have on this earth is a precious opportunity. We should do everything we can do win it. (Does that make sense in English) 

I love you all very much! Have a great week!

Capilla Abierta! (Chapel Open House)

Hey family and friends! I had an amazing week down here at the end of the world! 

This week in our zone we had a chapel open house. They just finished building it in Pico Truncado. So they pulled all of the missionaries together in our zone to help out with it. The first day when we got there, we just contacted all day long, handing out invitations to come to the chapel. Then (Friday and Saturday) we had the actual open house. Our job was to bring people in. So we went around and asked if we could walk with people and give them a tour of the chapel. It was really cool. 

The chapel is so beautiful. It looks like a temple on the inside. The spirit was so strong inside even before it was dedicated. 

It was a great weekend. We all worked so hard trying to get people in. And had so much fun doing it. By the end we were all exhuasted. But we had so much fun too!

I love you all! I hope that you guys have a great week!
