Week Sixty-Two: The Stake Dwelt in a Tent

We had a pretty insane week here in Chimbote. The mission has asked us to evaluate the rooms that our missionaries are living in and the places that they are eating at and make sure that they are all up to standard (not gross and that no one from the opposite sex lives there). We found a few problems and helped 2 companionships find a new room and move into it and 4 companionships find a new pensionista and switch. (Crazy week).

We also had a stake conference so big that we filled the chapel, the overflow, and the relief society room it was being broadcast into and a giant tent behind the church with a couple of hundred more. It was sooooo full.

We are starting to get excited for Christmas here. I still don't have any firm plans set but last week, Elder Boekweg and I bought a Christmas tree. Challenge: Could everyone who reads this, whether you know me or not, take a picture of yourself or your whole family in front of your Christmas tree and send it to me with your name and what state/country you are in? That'd be sweet.

Also, the Church is doing a sweet world-wide campaign called He is the Gift. If any of you haven't seen it yet, click .... HERE: 

Have a great week and go exercise after all that you ate on Thanksgiving. Love you all.
