Elder Magnusson's birthday sisters
thank you all for the love and support! i’ve said it once and ill say it again. the hour that i have on the computer reading your letters is the best hour of the week.
so this week was the longest but shortest week of my life. so im in centinela. it is in the zone of san fernando. it is right smack in the middle of the mission. the sector is super good. it is really gehtto but everyone loves us so i don’t think anything is going to happen. we have 9 people preparing for baptism and they are all really strong. yesterday we had a family of 4 come to church and another guy came too. let’s just say that the sector is popping. this whole week we didn’t have to contact because we had too much stuff to do. i have never had that in the mission. this week we are going to have to make time to contact because everyone is going to get baptized and then we aren’t going to have anything to do.
the zone is really good too. it is a super young zone. out of the 22 people that are here 6 companionships are training or are just just coming out of their training and everyone is younger than me except for one other elder. it is nice because there is a ton of energy here in the zone. we just have to help them direct that energy to the work of the Lord.
My comp is super good. he is known as one of the best elders in the mission. his name is elder villavicencio. he is from equador and he has one change less than me. i love the kid. he teaches and works so well. i have so much to learn from him.
so this week all of the zone leaders had to go up to rancagua to visit with the president. we had a huge meeting with him about the faith of the mission and how we need to do better. it was super good but we have so much to improve on as a mission. know on wednesday we have to give the same training to the zone. we are excited to do it. and we have the ability to change as a zone because we are young.
i can tell that i’m going to be learning a lot with the new things that we have to do but it is honestly really humbling. when all of the zone leaders were together i was thinking to myself that all of them were way better missionaries than me. i know that i just have to work hard and the Lord will do the rest.
thanks everyone for the love and support. i can feel your love and your prayers.
