This is Brasil

We had an incredible week!
On Tuesday, we did divisions with Elder Pulsipher and Elder Salgado (from Honduras). I stayed with Salgado in my area the whole day and we had some great experiences. We taught Mirtha (an investigator) the Doctrine of Christ and she gladly accepted it! I had the great opportunity to help this Elder and meanwhile, learn and grow from his example. He only has 2 months in the mission field, but he is tearing it up! To end divisions, I had a rather unpleasant experience. We were walking home and there was a lady turned around and as we walked by I said "Hola!" And she turned around, was smoking and said HOLA. And all smoke went into my FACE, my mouth and my clothes. I smoked...Just kidding, but it was pretty gross.
On Wednesday, we were in our area contacting people and we came upon a street that we had never entered before. We saw a young lady and started talking to her about the gospel. She actually had some interest, when all of a sudden I was inspired to ask her an important question. "Are we in Uruguay?" And she looks at me and says "No. This is Brazil." And so yeah....we left back to our country of service. This is the ONE area in the whole mission where you can actually be confused as to what country you are in. Anyway, we might come back to that street because Im pretty sure the Brazilian missionaries don´t even know it exists. 
On Thursday, we were invited to Hna. Martiniano´s setting apart! She is going to serve a mission in Peru! It was a special experience that brought me back a year and a half in time when President Mackay set me apart as a missionary! Truly an incredible and powerful experience. 
On Friday, I was assigned to do some special divisions with some Elders from my district so that was fun! I went over to Central 2, and we got to WORK. I also had the opportunity to interview Facundo, who was baptized on Saturday! It was a great, unforgettable experience. 
On Saturday, while I was still in the other area, I saw a less active guy (Brother Furtado) from my ward! We talked to him and I was like, Hermano...are you going to church tomorrow? And with hesitation, yet sincerity in his voice he said "Yes. Its been a while since I have been, but I will go with my family tomorrow." And he came! With the family!!!
I know without the slightest doubt that this work is the work of the Lord and we are here on his errand. Love you all!
Elder Teloma
