El Barrio, Consistorial

Sister Kemp with Sister Laycock and three Sisters at the CCM who will be coming to our Mission all joined in the activity in the Consistorial Ward. It was fantastic!

One of the dear Sisters made a missionary doll for President Laycock. What a treasure! We love our Chilean brothers and Sisters so much. They are always so loving and sweet. We are so thankful for their kindness and charity.

The Consistorial Ward had a wonderful Missionary activity. The Elders and Sisters from the Chile MTC all participated in a joint Missionary activity and then later attended Sunday meetings. President and Sister Laycock presented a devotional during the third hour of the block meetings.

President and Sister Laycock also had the opportunity to attend the Javiera Carrera joint Stake Mission activity during October. In this activity, the missionaries joined with the Stake Youth who served a mini mission, including personal and companionship study, language study, and proselyting activities throughout the afternoon. The activity culminated in a Stake Devotional in which a special video presentation containing the testimonies of the majority of the missionaries who have served from the Javiera Carrera Stake. The video presentation also included a slide presentation of pictures of Santiago East Missionaries. President Laycock, President Faundez, and Sister Laycock spoke during the fireside. What a marvelous and wonderful blessing it was to be with the Javiera Carrera Stake.

During October, President and Sister Laycock also attended the La Florida 1 Noche de Hogar. President Laycock spoke on the topic of eternal families and related mission topics, and then delicious food was served.

During October President and Sister Laycock also visited the Tobalaba Ward where President spoke on the important mission of pioneers. It was a wonderful evening with refreshments and a video, "Seventeen Miracles."

We enjoyed each of these activities tremendously, and know that those who attended and participated were blessed. Our missionaries were instrumental in making these activities happen. We are so thankful for faithful missionaries who work so hard to serve the members of their respective wards.
