so this week elder packer from the 70 came and spoke to our mission. he spoke to half the mission on wednesday and half the mission on thursday. we went on thursday. it was super good. he talked about how we could better invite the spirit in the lessons and how we can better teach repentance. i learned a lot from him. but the best part of the whole thing is that a lot of old comps and friends were there. i had a super good time talking with everyone. i wish that we could do more big things like this in the mission so we could see more people more often.
so this week was way slow in lontue because we don’t have anyone. we spent a few days contacting without much luck. We did find one lady that listened to the elders about 10 years ago and she is super good but the thing is she is going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks so we are going to have to wait.
these last 4 days have been nuts. it has been the weekend of independence day. and the 18th of september is the biggest day of the year here in chile. it makes working as a missionary terrible. we received the orders from the mission pres that we had to be in the sector but we couldn’t proselyte. so basically we had to spend time with the members.
the branch didn’t have an activity so high counselor that is assigned to the branch invited us to his ward’s activity today. it was wayyyyy fun but i ate way to much meat....... i feel so gross. but it will go away in a few hours.
sorry there isn’t much to write about. the work is going ok. the sector is the same old same old. thanks for your love and support. the church is true. Jesus is our Savior and I know that God loves his children.
I found these pictures on the mission website.
They are from a zone conference that was held this summer.
