Happy New Year everyone. On the night of December 31st, we missionaries were invited to Hermano Araya's home (the bishop's 2nd counselor) for a big dinner.

Chiguayante is beautiful. It is sandwiched between forested hills and the Bio Bio River, which I can see when I leave the house.
The work is going awesome here. By the end of Saturday we got our 20th lesson with a member present. Then on Sunday there were 142 people at church. During the week we had visited five less-active families, and four of them came to church. Three of our investigators also showed up!
I had the opportunity to give my first baptismal interview. It was with a girl named Fernanda. I first asked her how she felt about her baptism.
"A little nervous," she said, "I have planned everything. I am just looking forward to having the Spirit of God residing in me."
Did I really need to ask any more questions? She's ready.
I love it here!
Happy 2017 everyone,
Elder Connor Nef
