This week we also had a conferencia with a member of the Seventy, Elder Spannaus. The 6 Hnas from our casa sang a christmas musical number a cappella, what whaaaaat?! It could've sounded horrible for all we know. It really was great though. I learned a lot about what this mission means to me and the great responsibility we have.
Yesterday in church Hna Hawkins and I taught a lesson in relief society on visiting teaching because no one here really understands it and thinks it's just for menos activos and such, so that was nice.
We also have another joven we are teaching, Javiera. Her mom is a menos activo that wants to come back to church and get her family active. She has 8 kids! We taught her the Restauracion last Saturday and it was really really great. We are hoping she can be baptized Dec 21. Our mission is working to have a blanco Navidad!
I am learning a lot out here and feeling really humbled to be called to do this work. I know I have so much I still need to improve and change but I also know it is all possible.
Alma 26:12-13 . I have great reason to rejoice! Especially for the fact that I have you guys!
I am sorry if this email is so scattered!

Thanksgiving dinner, Indian style with stuffing and mashed potatoes from a box. Cranberry juice. Deli turkey, turkey jerky and Blueberry Kuchen, which is about the closest thing we could find to pie. It was a Thanksgiving to remember at the Llaima missionary house at 10:45 at night. Still lots of fun. It was a great day.
