The Pig

This week was great!! So we got some good, interesting news! So in our area, there is  a mountain that divides Uruguay from Brazil. One side of the mountain is Brazil and the other side is Uruguay. However, on our side of the mountain there is a random street that is actually Brazil!! AND it is now officially part of our area and the Uruguay Montevideo West Mission! It is awesome!!!! So we went there and contacted many people! A few of them spoke Spanish, and others spoke Portuguese. And so did I. Just a little though.
Later we found Luis who is a friend of a member! He requested that we speak to him in Portuñol ( a mixture of Spanish and Portuguese). So we did! We had  a great lesson on the Restoration and as we were teaching, some girl who works in the office inside his sound was very interested and came in to listen. Her name is Karla. She was quiet and attentive the whole time, but when I asked her about how she felt about the lesson, she talked alot!! We resolved tons of doubts!
So we had a great experience yesterday. We went on divisions with two young men in our ward. I left to work with Sebastian, who is 16 and preparing for a mission! We were at the end of our area (close to Brazil) and as we were walking down this large dirt road, I felt that we should contact a house. However it was a bit sketch because we had to enter through a large field to get there. Anyway, in the end, we made it, knocked and the nicest lady answered and invited us to sit outside with her! Her name is Eva Cuña! Super nice and we talked to her about families and taught a little bit about the Plan of Salvation! It was an amazing lesson! After she took us to her backyard (where her husband was working) to show us their farm. There were 10 chickens sleeping, which is normal right? But no. They were sleeping on the high branches of a TREE!!! HAHAH. THEN she showed us their friendly, super tubby 8 month old pig! It was a great experience! I love this country and I love the Lord and His work here!
