Visit of Elder Scott and Elder Corbridge . . .

We are blessed to have Elder Scott from the Quorum of the Twelve in Chile this week. He came to visit our mission yesterday and was accompanied by Elder Corbridge of the First Quorum of Seventy and a counselor in our Area Presidency, and his wife. We had a 4-hour mission conference yesterday them and it was truly remarkable. What a blessing to have these brethren visit our mission. Today they are in Punta Arenas where they will meet with our missionaries there and later have a conference with the members. There are firesides also planned in Valdivia, Puerto Varas and Puerto Montt this week as well as training this Saturday and conferences on Sunday in Osorno and Puerto Montt. It will be a wonderful week.

Yesterday we had Elder Scott and the Corbridges in the Mission Home for dinner and truly enjoyed the opportunity to be with them. I am amazed at Elder Scott´s energy and stamina. He is constantly on the go and so anxious to be with the members and missionaries.
Above is a picture of the Punta Arenas Zone with Elder Scott, Elder and Sister Corbridge and President Acevedo, the stake president. What a wonderful experience for such a small group of missionaries to get to spend more than 4 hours in training with Elder Scott and Elder Corbridge. As I´ve spoken with them, it is clear that it was an unforgettable experience.

The four sisters above (l-r) Hna McMasters (Utah), Hna Thompson (Virginia), Hna Smith (California) and Hna Aponte (Argentina) especially enjoyed the conference. The apostolic blessing pronounced upon them will be something I am sure they will share with their family.

Dear President and Sister Lovell,

Thank you so much for the time and effort that you put into this blog. As a missionary mom, I love to see what is going on in the mission and to see all of the pictures. It is amazing to me every time I see a picture of Jens. He is having a wonderful mission experience and I thank you for loving these kids and creating such a great atmosphere for them to serve in. I am sure that they can tell that you really care about them. Thank you for all of this.

Sincerely, Elder Ashton's mom
