-I dont know if Chile has any Christmas traditions... not really. Hahah actually yes they do. So:
They eat dinner on Christmas Eve at like 10:30 at night. Then they stay up chatting until 12:00 at night. RIGHT when the clock ticks everyone opens up the presents that they received from Viejito Pascuero (Santa Claus). Kinda cool!
So tomorrow is the big Dale Brophy´s birthday to all those who are reading this! Give that guy a SHOUT OUT!
This week was incredible! Literally miracles! I would like to share one of them.
So, on Friday we found a guy named Hugo. He studies the Bible and has a lot of faith in Christ. He recently moved here to Talagante and lives alone. So, we taught him about the Restoration and gave him a Book of Mormon. Anyways, yesterday we went to his house and he is half way done with 1 Nephi and believes that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God.

So, testifying of the truthfullness of his statements, we invited him shortly after to be baptized. He accepted and will be baptized on the 2 day of January. Coolest thing about this experience? We didnt do anything. God prepared Hugo to receive the gospel.
I know with all my heart that this is the true gospel. Christ lives. I know. I know that if we as missionaries/members are obedient to the commandments of God, we will be blessed. I know there are angels preparing others to receive the gospel... and if we aren´t obedient the work they do is in vain because we are not worthy to receive that blessing.
I love you all. Talk to you all next week!
Oh ps... i have changes so i will tell everyone where I am next week!
