¡FELICES FIESTAS PATRIAS, familia!
This coming week is the week of el 18 de septiembre, the national holiday of Chile, and las fiestas patrias!
There's been a spirit of that in the air this past week, and all are preparing with banderas flying in every corner and offers for choripan, pajaritos, empanadas, asado, and mote con huesillo lining the streets!
We had a fine past week, highlighted by the worldwide day of service. As nearly half of the mission, we united with the members of various stakes and cleaned the streets of Concepción, scraping posters off the walls and picking up trash. Apart from service, there was much missionary fun to be had in the week, and Elder Fuentealba and I were able to work with the members and see many less-active members in the chapel on Sunday.
This week we ourselves are preparing for the fiestas, and will do all that we can to teach these happy Chilenos!
A very FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS to Aunt Dee! I am celebrating, and so dedicated a doughnut! ;)
Also, happy Grandparents Day to Grannie and Papa!
Love you, my family! Running!
