Christmas Conference

Dec 12,2016

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday was the Christmas Conference for the southern part of our mission so pretty much all day we were in talking with the Mission President and his family. It was pretty much a normal conference for the most part but we had a huge lunch and after there was a movie and ice cream! Then after all that, we went out and played soccer with the President and his family for part of our p day. So today we have a half day to go out and write and to buy food and other stuff that missionaries need. At the the conference yesterday got a package that was sent to Vallenar by mistake. So I got a sweet package from Jud filled with all kinds of candy and beef jerky and socks! Thanks SO much for that Jud!!!!! 

My companion finally got here late last Tuesday, His name is Elder CastaƱeta and he is from Bogota, Columbia. Me and him are pretty big jokers but we have been going at it like crazy this past week! We have been sharing a lot about the current Christmas season. There is a video in particular that we have been showing everyone that is from the church and lasts about 3 mins called light the world. I have seen it about a million times now but it is still a super neat video that everyone should see! 

Enzo, who got baptized about a week ago, is doing super well too! He is always learning or reading something new in the Book of Mormon and the principles book, and he always asking the craziest questions that usually I dont't know the answers to! We also have this other family that I am hoping and praying that they can get married and baptized before New Years. Not because anything will change after new years but they have been together for 31 years and almost have grandchildren and they still haven't gotten married. I think that's enough procrastinating!!!!!

Have a great week!!
Elder Brayton
