Christmas and Letter from January 2nd, 2012

We were able to speak with Taylor on Christmas Day and it was great to talk to him.  He is so concerned about getting everything done on his mission that the Lord would have him do.  He has spent six months in San Miguel and has enjoyed his time there.  Now, he is off to another adventure.  Here is his letter from this week with photos from Christmas as well.  The first pictures are of the ward Christmas party and you all know how much he likes to take pictures of meat!  Thanks to everyone for your support of Taylor.

Hey everybody-

I am a little short on time, but I will explain why in just a second.


Finally we have some really good investigators. A week ago we found a single mom with 6 year old fraternal twins (boy and girl). She is really interested in the gospel, especially for her family. The other is Manuel and Catalina, who have a baptismal date for the 4th of February along with their 9 year old daughter. Catalina was the person who we contacted the 18 de Septiembre (the big party day) who just loved the Book of Mormon. She is really smart and I think they will make it to baptism. We also have a member who recently reactivated and moved back to the ward. His wife isn´t a member and had been listening to the missionaries in their old ward. She also looks really promising.


At last, the information at least some of you have been waiting for. Yes, after 6 months here I have changes! It also looks like a ton of people have changes because President King is preparing the mission for a huge influx of missionaries. Our mission is going to be at full capacity (180 missionaries) for quite a while longer. Every companionship in Zona San Miguel has changes, which I have never seen before. Anyway, for guesses as to what Zone I might go to, I am thinking that it will be Maipú, Ochagavia, or Cinco de Abril.


Ok, so an explanation of the pictures. So we went to the mission home as a Zone for our Zone activity. We had BBQ chicken sandwiches and played games out back with President and Hermana King. I also am pretty sure that President King killed the missionaries that he was playing Rummikub (is that how you spell it?) with. These are the pictures we took while we were there. It was super fun!

Have a great week!
