Weekly Update -- November 21st, 2016

Hello everyone,

Another week down, getting close in the Christmas call countdown. Happy thanksgiving to you Americans, enjoy the turkey and as an early invitation to switch things up, go ahead and express at least one thing you are grateful for while you're all together. Tables turned!!

This morning we climbed the famous 'Cerro de la Silla' to get some great pictures for the post mission slide show (which I will include) and had a great time spending time together as a district. It's coming to a close of this change now and many are thinking about who is going where. I think I'll be moving next week, or at the very least have a new companion. Who knows.

As far as spiritual experiences go, this week we had the opportunity to hear Pres. Valenzuela talk with us as mission leaders (of district and of zone and of sisters). I was surprised on how much emphasis was given on 1. Simple doctrine like the atonement 2. The importance of companionship unity and 3. New ways of working with members to share the gospel. Very uplifting meeting and fun to be apart of. Remember the video I recommended last week? As a double table turning second invitation, I invite you to send that video to someone you feel inspired to share it with on Facebook this Thanksgiving weekend. Let the miracles commence. Love you all, thanks for your thoughts and prayers!

Thanks for the silly string!
