Dec. 21, 2015 Feliz Navidad.... Almost

Hey guys!. Well not much happened this week. Yesterday we had a really great Christmas concert in our stake center that we had been inviting people to all month. There was a band of Carabineros (policemen) that all played like brass instruments and a choir made up of LDS members around Concepcion area. It turned out super cool! It got me super excited for christmas!!

And they had books of mormons with a little pass along card all wrapped up in ribbons to give away to the people that were not members there, and us missionaries were the ushers that showed people to their seats and stuff. We were guarding these 2 sections of seats for a group of old folks that were supposed to come, and tons of people were trying to sit there. So for like 40 minutes before the concert started we were turning people away, but the old folks never arrived.... haha so we just ended up sitting down there and watching the blithering show.

We also had a really fun Ward Family Home evening activity that turned out great as well. There were a few investigators there (not from our sector) but were invited by family members. And now tomorrow we have the big entire mission conference here in Hualpen that is gonna be sick.

And Im just excited to see you guys this friday. Its gonna be sick! or as the chileans would say "¡terrible bac├án!"

Anyways, I would like to end on a spiritual note that I re-studied this week in the bible. Remember how one of Christ's names is "The great multiplier". And the story of where he fed the 5,000 with a few loaves of bread and a few fish. And then later feeds 4,000 more? Yeah. Thats a sweet miracle that takes place. The same can take place in our lives if we allow it to. We must be willing to give OUR ALL! Everything that we have. (even if its a couple small fishes and some loaves of bread) And although it will never be enough on its on. Jesus Christ can and WILL multiply us and make us something OUTSTANDING. But only if we lay it all out on the table, and put our faith in him. Thats something President Butler taught me before the mission, that I have always loved!

This church is true. The book of Mormon is the most correct book on the face of the earth, and if we are not studying its pages everyday.... we ought to repent, and start the habit RIGHT NOW :)

Con much amor
