Christmas Conference

Well, some how in storm of endless to-do lists we got everything prepared for the Christmas conferences. The first conference was on wednesday and by a miracle we got everything done at 12:30 at night on tuesday. We locked up the office and piled in the truck and the battery was dead. We tried pushing it down a hill to jump start it but it didn´t work. We waited a little while to see if we could flag someone down to give the battery a charge but there wasn´t anyone. So we pushed the truck to the nearest gas station and eventualy someone had cables and helped us out. I was exhausted to say the least.

The next morning we got up early to set up stuff in the chapel. I had rented a bus to bring the missionaries from los angeles but the bus didn´t show up. After making a couple calls, everyone was on their way to Concepción. The conference was a lot of fun. Sister Bluth asked me to translate for her and it was  pretty hard. I´ve never had to translate anything live before let alone in front of tons of people but it turned out well. Our video/skit went really well. Not to be biased or anything but it was for sure the best skit there. If I can, i´ll send you the video.

The conference on Wednesday ended at about 6 pm. We quickly (at least we tried to make it quick) cleaned everything up, picked up stuff for the next conference, packed out bags, and drove the four hours down south. There wasn´t room in the truck so I rode with President and his wife. We had a lot of good conversations. We finally got to Temuco and slept on cold tile floor. 

The next morning we ran around picking up and dropping things off and finally got everything ready. The conference ended at 6pm and we started the four hours back to Concepción at 8pm.

On friday I tried to get things ready for transfers next week but there was a surprise baptismal interview in Santa Juana, and hour out side of Concepción. 

I´m more than tired but I can´t lie, it is a lot of fun. Like I said, next week we have transfers so it won't be getting less crazy for a while.

Today for pday we are going to celebrate the week by going to a fancy all you can eat buffet. I´m pretty excited.
