Wk 82 - ¡Feliz Año Nuevo!

Companion: Elder Anderson
Area: Tome´

some decorations they had of the temple that is going to be in Concepcion

some friends from the mission as well
the shovel used in the ground breaking for the temple

a crazy member in our ward named fito

some of my gifts and the dinner on christmas eve

we went to chillan so my comp could buy soveniours
and this is just a big catholic church there
well first of all it was good to see you guys on christmas day. I think that is one of the greatest gift one can receive is to be able to see their family on christmas. It is always fun to see you guys!! 

I am doing so well here. i love all the good times and the hard times as well! This past week as you know we had a christmas conference with the whole mission. it was good to hear a talk from our mission president and his wife. one thing they talked about that i just loved was when they were preparing to come on the mission they had an apostle visit them. I cant remember which one it was but they told them how they could measure their success as mission presidents. they said they will know if they were successful not in a few years after but decades after when the kids of those missionaries they served are sealed in the temple. it was pretty cool to hear that and that was something that stood out to me. the conference theme was a temple theme and they had a shovel from the ground breaking there and we were able to take pics and it was a really fun experience! 

it was  a good last christmas in the mission. we ate dinner and christmas eve with the peñailillo family. i know it is a crazy name!! haha they are way cool! they gave us some little gifts and that was really nice of them! 

i will be sending pics of the week but i love you guys!! have a great week!!
