While Elder Woodfield was serving in Cabrero he also spent several days a week serving in neighboring Monte Aguila. Before he left the area his Mission President charged him and his companion to find a new place for the Elders to live. The Sister Missionaries would now live in Cabrero and the Elders in Monte Aguila. They were successful in finding a home where they could also meet for Church. The Church members in Monte Aguila were especially excited about this. Eventually the building would be painted, etc., but here are some photos from (what I can guess) is the first Sacrament Meeting in the building.

Once of the first things that Travis and his new companion, Elder K. from Salt Lake City, got to experience together was M.'s baptism.
Church members there.
Travis can always be counted on to send home photos of soccer fields and other things he knows we love.
Church members there.
For the last photo of this post, here are all the missionaries in the Chile Concepción South Mission as of December 2015. I always know to look for Travis in the back row, and there he is--tallest Elder in the middle. Love him so!

For the past three months Elder Woodfield has been serving as a missionary in Cabrero, Chile and its neighboring town of Monte Aquila. This sign says it best. He and his companion have truly been "working machines."
He's served and loved and learned from the beautiful people here.
Of course, being Travis, he sends home numerous photos of food.
He may be a working machine, but every once in a while, on P-days, he and the other missionaries can play a little--be it on a fútbol field, a snowy volcano, or by a waterfall.
Travis turned 20 last month, and like a true adult he spent the day working. He did, however, buy a Chilean apple pie to celebrate with his companion. (Yes, that candle is a Q-tip.)
My mother-heart is comforted to know that he is happy and finding joy in his service and sacrifice. I am grateful for his personal growth and spiritual journey to truly know God and that he finds simple pleasures along the way.
After twelve weeks together Elder O. has been transferred to a different city and Elder Woodfield will be TRAINING his next companion--a brand new missionary fresh from the Missionary Training Center. On to the next adventure!
