This week saw Elder Beeston and I in many places!

Elder Beeston felt much better Tuesday morning after having been sick last Monday.  Tuesday and Wednesday we spent the majority of the time between Tomé and Penco. Saturday morning Elder Beeston and I went for special training, where I saw my old companions!

It was with many blessings that we were able to greatly use the time we did have in Coelemu. We were able to go with a member to bring Hermana Mirella and Hermano Miguel, two distinct investigators, to church Sunday morning!

Elder Beeston and I are staying active and committed!

Mucho amor, mi familia,

Elder Trent Sellers :)

¡Hola, papás!

Sorry for not writing on Monday! Elder Beeston woke up very sick to his stomach during the middle of the night and we spent the entire day in the house except for a very brief trip to a small store close to the house to buy him Powerade and salted crackers. He rested the whole day on Monday, and by Tuesday morning he was feeling much better! Tuesday we spent the entire day in Tomé. We had a zone class in the morning and then in the afternoon went on divisions with the elders there because of two baptism interviews that I was to do. We only were able to do one in the end, and the hermano I interviewed has to avoid tea for another two weeks, but it went well. :) Yesterday we traveled from there to Penco for the worldwide training and got back to Coelemu at 6:00. We've spent very little time here this week!

Heading to take the bus to Trehauco now where we'll eat lunch with la familia Valenzuela and spend a portion of the afternoon working!

Great to see the storage container emptied from the chapel! Haha we're about back in!

Love you, my parents! Glad you enjoyed the pictures! :) I'll write more on Monday! President gave us permission to write for a brief time today! :)

Mucho amor de su misionero,

Heavenly Father has called me to spend my days in Coelemu!

After hearing of cambios during a phone call in a slightly cramped position on a bus towards Quirihue early this morning, we learned that all four of us elders in the district will be staying!

I am grateful for that blessing, and am so excited for the coming weeks here in this faithful branch!

This week saw every day occupied, between a special clase de zona, two mini cambios, la Conferencia para los nuevos misioneros en Concepción, el día de limpieza, and a very special branch activity that saw la rama Coelemu play fútbol and share lunch with la rama de Coihueco!

What an inmense outpouring of love, arranged by one of the less-active members, Pablo Vega, whose family we are teaching!

I love you, my family!

¡Buena semana!

Mucho amor de su misionero,

Elder Trent Sellers

Elder Kalasic and me!

Special branch activity that saw la rama Coelemu play fútbol and share lunch with la rama de Coihueco!

Today Elder Baldwin, Elder Kalasic, Elder Beeston, and I took a trip to Cobquecura!

We walked along the beach between la lobería and la iglesia de piedra!

On December 29th we celebrated Elder Beeston's birthday in the home of Hermano Pablo Vega and his soon-to-be wife Barbara, a less-active from Coihueco whose family we are teaching!

 Elder Beeston turned 20 the following day!

The branch of Coihueco rented a bus to play against Coelemu!

Here we go!

This is going to be hard to believe! In a dual-branch activity, the branch of Coelemu came together with the branch of Coihueco for a series of games of soccer and a lunch shared in the chapel!

A different perspective - from where we Skyped!

I cannot begin to imagine what this year has in store.

It was well-welcomed here!

Elder Beeston and I attended the early hours of a ward New Years activity in la cocinería de la familia Cuadra. We enjoyed a dinner there at the table with la familia Cuadra, and left before the party started. We welcomed to New Year laying in our beds and listening to the party outside!

Very much looking forward to the New Year! I have a number of goals to write down...

HAPPY NEW YEAR, my family!

Mom and dad, have a wonderful time with Aunt Susie, Katie, and Dave!

I love you all!

Mucho amor,

Elder Trent Sellers

Happy New Year!

Almost all of my companions that are yet in the mission! Here, Elder Fonseca is missing!

Thank you, momma and my dad, for EVERYTHING that came in these huge packages! I've been doing what I can to share the blessings. :)
