But the next morning I had to catch a bus to Concepciòn and I rode with Elder Kingford! Haha So we both made it to Conce and walked to the mission office where the conference was being held. The conference went great especially cause I was able to see everyone from the CCM! Elder Holt was there along with Hermana Long, Poulson, and Burnham. It was so good to see them and hear all their experiences in their sectors. After the 1st part of conference ended we were assigned a companion (a senior missionary that was in a sector near Conce) and then we went out to work with them. I went with Elder Jackson who was a gringo!! Two days in a row with gringo companions!! Haha Anyways, his sector was Talcahuano Sur which had the best weather in the world!! It`s just west of Conce kinda on this peninsula type thing. But I had such a great time with him! We went to a ton of lessons and he made me teach big parts in all the lessons and again I was able to understand AND talk perfectly! I really got me excited to get back to Quirihue and talk to people.
The next morning I headed back to the mission office for the 2nd part of the conference. It was pretty short and soon I had to say bye to every one and get a bus to Coelemu and then back to Quirihue....by my self! AHHH!! Haha It actually wasn't that bad and I was able to get back with no problem. It was just a little bit weird not having a companion for a couple hours haha.
So while I was gone, my companions went and bought a lamb. Yes a lamb. We were having a get together with all the members and we were going to eat lamb! Haha. So we named the lamb Gaby (hahahha). So Friday afternoon we had Hermano Miguel come over and help us kill Gaby. It was pretty gross and I admit I had to go to the other room haha. But on Saturday afternoon we were able to eat Gaby! Oh boy was she good haha! We had about 20 people there hanging out and socializing, it was pretty great!
Busy week with lots of fun, but not too much success in finding more people to teach which really bums me out, but it`s a new week now and I plan to find all those people who have been prepared by the Lord! I love and miss everyone back and home and I hope everything is going well!
