Transfer weeks missionaries arriving early in the morning oh fun stuff. Our apartment is the closest to centro and to the bus station and I knew that on Monday night/Tuesday morning that a big group of Elders and Sisters were coming into Copiapo at about 3 in the morning. The plan was at the moment that there would be no Elders coming to spend the rest of the night with us. So we went to bed feeling a little bad for the Zone Leaders because they must be there to receive the missionaries. I woke up at about 3:30 not really sure why and just laid there inbed until about 3:50 and Elder Cabera calls me to ask if Elder Hertler and Elder Flores can come and stay at our pension I give them the address and they arrive about 10 minutes later.
We went to go visit a inactive family and they had bought a new fridge so we helped them install it then had a destroyer lesson with them. The spirit rebuked them, and then they came to church. Best part.
So Elder McCaskill and I every week make some kind of food one day that is a little more gringa so this week we made salad, and we bought cesar and french dressings. Good stuff.
Sunday we had 123 people in church the most people I have ever seen in the chapel here in Copayapu. Fantastic. It was fast and testimony meeting and it just was a really good meeting. I enjoyed it.
The mission is beginning to have it's changes with Pres. Dalton, and Elder McCaskill and I are pretty pumped for these upcoming weeks.
Have a Wonderful day- because you can choose to
