¡Buena semana, familia!
It's gotten cold here in Coihueco! It froze over night, and we left the house this morning to find the ground covered in frost. We are bundled up, with coats and scarfs. And to think of the difference between Coihueco and Orlando!
Elder Hartvigsen and I are having fun, though, and we are making the best of it, putting ideas together to stay warm this winter, working hard, and visiting as many as possible. We are visiting many less-active members yet, and on Sunday a few who hadn't come in a few weeks were able to make their way to the chapel. That includes Hermana Dina, an hermana in her 50s who rides a bike that she calls her Porsche haha.
Mid-week, Ariel, a good friend and 20-year-old recent convert took us out to visit the outside parts of the comuna Coihueco, and we were able to see parts that we had never touched - even spaces of large fields on the side of the foothills leading into the Andes. In the latter part of the week, we had interviews with President Arrington, and then had a mini cambio with the elders of another sector in the zona, Agronomia.
This coming week is going to be yet another one as the last. We are going to do another mini cambio with another sector, and the branch is preparing for a Noche de Talento that the Obra Misional is putting together on Saturday. ¡Que semana!
Sending my love and condolences to the Stokes family, after hearing the sad news of the passing of Sister Stokes. What an example she is to me, and practically another grandma. I know Heavenly Father is taking good care of her now.
I love you, my family. I hope you each have a great week, and enjoy the warmer and sunny weather!
¡Saludos de Coihueco!

We made pancakes for the Seminary students - two times now! ;)
