¡Saludos de Concepción, otra vez!
After being away in the campo for nearly nine months, I've made my way back to the city!
I do miss Coihueco and the many incredible friends there, but the cambio has made for an exciting first week in Hualpen! What an experience!
Elder Holt is a very humble, funny missionary from Nebraska with now seven weeks in Chile, and we had a fun week coming to know the sector together - a sector which neither of us yet know entirely well! We spent much of the last week passing by the houses of members to get to know many of the strong, active families of this ward Bío-Bío. We knocked many doors of many families not too-well-known by my companion nor I, and came to know them and their many children! There are many big families in the ward! A great number of them have grandparents who came to know the Church a long time ago in their early lives, and grandchildren who fill the Primary with short yet strong testimonies of the Gospel - something that we saw when Elder Jensen and I taught a Primary class on Sunday!
On Sunday there were 140 in the chapel - a huge change and some 100 more than what I had been used to seeing!
The work, or rather, missionary fun, is different here, but it is going to be mucho!
¡Que tengan una semana buenísima!
Elder Trent Sellers :)
