Hey mama what’s cookin’ this fine Monday afternoon with you??:) haha. I love Monday’s as well because it’s the day we get ready and write the family so that we can just go out and rock and roll the rest of the week!!!:) This last week was sooo good, but it also flew by so fast. I can’t really remember what happened... hahaha. We celebrated the birthday of a hermana missionary in Llanquihue so we had our district meeting and surprised her!!:) Then we had intercambios with the elders of Puerto Varas and I stayed here with Elder Merchen. We had a sweet family home evening with the family Alvarado and the bishop’s family!!:)
Also we were working a lot on the activity we had here last Friday called the "fiesta de las naciones." We had U.S.A, Mexico, New Zealand, China, Brazil and Chile represented!!:) It was soooo fun and the members loved it so much!!:) The relief society really got into their country (China), it was so cool. Every organization was in charge of one of the countries. They had to do a food and a dance. It was really fun, and a bunch of families that we didn’t know got here so we could meet them!!:) Then on Saturday we had divisions with the other elders of Alerce. We found a less active family and it was really cool to meet Lesette Casanova and her family. The elders are going to be able to start helping that family!!:) Also today is Consuelo Alvarado’s birthday, so we are going to pass by and have FHE with them so that will be sweet!!:) And yeah this week we will have the conference with the Elder Christofferson here in Puerto Varas!!!:) I’ll let you know how that goes!!
No I didn’t see the Volcano Calbuco spewing any ash or anything... but yeah we are really close. That would be so cool to see!!:) (He said that Alerce is behind the cloud in the picture I sent him so that’s probably why they didn’t see it…) And Megs had her baby and now they have a family of 7!!! Like what??? He is so cute!!:)
I love the thought that you shared!! (The thought was from David O. McKay: "Man's greatest happiness comes from losing himself for the good of others.") For my thought this week I just want to testify. I know the Lord uses us as his tools and his agents if we are ready. This last week on divisions we went to buy some french fries (because I was hungry) after we had a few hours of rough contacts and no one being home. So we started talking to the lady running the stand and she turned out being really interested and invited us to her house to visit her!!:) That was a cool example of how the Lord always uses us to do his work!!:)
Love you momma to infinity and beyond!!!:)
