Arriving in Artigas I was met by the Sister who trained me – We are now both in the same Branch!
This week we were in the house of a member menos activo who we are working with and
she had her grand child there who stared at me the whole time and I
couldn’t help but thinking, I just want to hold it!! jaja oh, and mom,
the house is really nice, we have beds and everything!! Here they feed
us lunch everyday so all we have to worry about is breakfast and a
carrot at night. They really do take good care of us here. This past
week has been busy in the best ways possible. Well every week is. One
of the families who we are working with accepted a baptismal date!! so
now we just have to help them with all their needs and gain a
testimony of the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is
really amazing that the Lord is using us youngns to help people
completely change their lives and follow Him. It helps us to remember
that this is really God’s work and that all depends on Him, because
otherwise we couldn’t do it. So our Thanksgiving was crazy!! While
you were cooking turkey my companion and I contacted a man who has a
200 something old house, a monkey and a wine vinyard, yup he makes
his own wine. We wanted to share the gospel and he wanted to show us
all of his groves, sheep and his monkey. It was really fun, and
extremely beautiful!! He has an old fashioned wine cellar and
everything. He told us that we could use his grounds for a p -day and
that he will make us a churriso. Later that day we had lunch with
some members, noodles and yummy chicken and then we gave a Book of
Mormon to one of our investigators and to top off the day we had a
choque de fuerza where we get a bunch of people to help missionaries
find people in their area. We found a part member family to help!!
Really this week has been crazy fun I even started learning samba in a
ward activity. Everything is moving forward in the work of the Lord!!
Today we are going to help our investigators mark a date to get
married. Here it is a bit more complicated to get married!! I know
really that this is the Work of the Lord and that He really does love
us!! I know that the Greatest joys really do come from living the
gospel and serving God!!
