Last Christmas in Chile for Elder Magnusson

it was good to talk to the family yesterday. sorry the internet wasn’t very good but it is what we had to deal with. its weird to think that the next time i hear your voices i’m going to be in the states. crazy stuff.  and it was crazy to hear about mom and dads mission call. after i was thinking about it and i know that it was a call from God.
Elder Magnusson's parents were called to the El Salvador San Salvador West/Belize Mission to begin on July 3rd 2017. 

so this week wasn’t that big. christmas here in chile isn’t really that big. its kinda sad.  i honestly didn’t feel like christmas was on the way until we went caroling as a branch on the 24th.  we went to a bunch of less actives and recent converts. that was pretty special. almost everyone that we went to started crying. it just went to show me that people really do need/want love on christmas.
You can also see the video by clicking here.  

the branch was really good about making us feel good. most of the members gave us small gifts and we had 3 christmas meals. christmas dinner is just a BBQ here. we ate a lot of meat this weekend. all in all it was a good christmas weekend. i cant complain one bit.

we got changes this weekend and i’m going to stay here in centinela with my comp. we are both pretty excited about the change. we work well together and we looking to have a change with a lot of success. one thing that we have to do is help the zone a lot. these last 3 weeks have been really rough for us but we are hoping that the new bunch of missionaries that we are getting this change are really going to help us.

tomorrow everyone moves. it is going to be a long morning for us and i’m not looking forward to it. this morning we were doing all of the travel plans for the people that are leaving the zone and i can already tell it is going to be a crazy day tomorrow. we will see how it goes.

next week ill give you more info on the investigators and stuff. its been a crazy day and time is short.

love you all. thanks for what you are all doing for me. hope you all have a good week.
