Winter in Chile

Not much time to write, but I wanted to share a little about the people we are teaching.
Leontina! LOVE her. she is a less active and she is going to the temple this weekend, we are so happy for her. she is amazing
Elena another less active who has stopped smoking and took the sacrament 2 weeks ago for the first time in years. she is changing so much. We gave her a bible this week to read with her LDM and she was absolutely beaming. She is wonderful.
New family I will call 'The James' Both mom and dad are less active but are so ready for the gospel in there life again. They have 3 sweet daughters and we have been helping the oldest prepare for baptism. They are progressing so much.
(We have a few more but these  are the most progressive)
We recently had to cut a few of our investigators because of some different things but we are doing our best to find news and help prepare the ward for them

to answer some questions I got to see all but the women's session of conference in English. Did you catch the Chilean speaker? He was awesome.

We had a conference with Elder Oaks this week. We watched him from a live feed from Santiago. It was so so good. He said the brethren are going to speak a lot more about sacrament in the coming months. His words will really help some of our investigators and the members. He also spoke on converting people to CHRIST not the 'church.' So awesome really.

Winter is here! Here comes the rain! It was a down pour all night on Saturday
Have you ever heard the term 'fishers of men' well let me tell you something umbrellas are the fishing poles. Contacts were so much more friendly when we shared our umbrellas with them when we talked. It was actually really fun for once. 

With the winter our apt has really cooled down. I have literally slept in my coat this week. Hot chocolate has become our best friend! 

Cheek kiss! Chow!
