We had zone conference last week and I saw Elder Tuttle and we had a nice talk about Oasis. I enjoy here stories about past areas but also it is sad to here about people that we worked hard with and they were coming to church not coming anymore. Then also when other missionaries destroy work that one was so diligent to do it's all gone. It was wonderful to be together as 3 zones in Antofagasta with many missionaries that I've met throughout my time here, and to learn where different Elders are serving now. Plus with all of that as well we had Pizza for lunch which is always a nice bonus.
A member from Bolivia came to Mejillones, ex-missionary who served in Pocatella Idaho 10 years ago. Haven't talked with him much but he taught me a very important lesson that everyone is watch us, as Representatives of Christ, and that doesn't just means the missionaries, (especially the missionaries) but members as well.
In Mejillones a singer from Mexico came to sing and Saturday evening the streets were filled with people heading to the auditorium in front of the church to watch him. People came from all over to watch and listen.
Today in the morning we went to the museum of Mejillones and they have a place to put your face. So we took pictures. And the other photo is of the ocean, it's a nice place here.
Have a Wonderful day - because you can choose to
