Short September report

     Last week was a good one in the Chile Rancagua misión, for us especially because our son and daughter-in-law are visiting us for the week.  We have been showing them around our part of Chile and they have been very good sports about everything, including Chilean traffic quirks and trying Chilean food.  We have had empanadas and still plan to try churrasco and parrillada!  We also enjoyed attending a stake activity where each ward presented a dance.
     On another subject, we feel we are finally making progress with changing and improving our missionary houses.  Some of them were in bad enough shape that we moved them into a new house, while others were much improved with a good mold remover product and newly painted walls.  We have also replaced many stoves, refrigerators, mattresses, chairs, pillows and other life essentials.  Now we are pressing forward with a challenge to keep their house clean and a place where the Spirit will feel comfortable.
     It is amazing how fast this month has gone by.  We did special training in September in three different groups with the zone leaders, district leaders and coordinadoras.  We learned in the seminar from June this year to work with our leaders and trust them to train the missionaries in their care.  Next month we will begin our cycle over again with zone conferences.
     This post has been a bit of a hodge podge, if anyone still recognizes that saying, but please know that we are doing well, we love our missionaries and we are all working together to advance the Lord’s work here in our part of Chile.
