Salto Week 1

Bom dia!!! Hoje, eu gostaria de falar em Portugues um pouco com voces.
Nah, just kidding. I´ll write in English.
We had a great first week over here in Salto!!! Once I got to Salto on Wednesday, I had to welcome all the new missionaries coming in from other parts of Uruguay! What a great experience!
On Thursday, my companion and I trained all the district leaders of Salto for this upcoming 6 weeks of success in the work of the Lord! I also met the Gimenez family in my area and they are an amazing family!
On Friday, I got to know my area very well. We went around talking to people when we came across some guy named Nunez. He was very kind and we talked to him and his girlfriend, Lady. Then            Lady´s parents, Jesus and Monica joined in and then Jesus´ sister, Monica joined in. Before we knew it, we were teaching 5 adults the Resoration of the gospel. It was incredible!
On Saturday, We came back. Unfortunately, we only found Jesus. However we still taught Jesus the Book of Mormon! That just sounds strange...
Anyway, it was a great lesson. The Spirit clearly testified of what we were saying. Later that evening, we met Regima (a less active) and her husband Carlos (an investigator). We read with them 3rd Nephi 11, when Christ descends into the Americas. It was a powerful lesson that clearly touched their hearts, which is especially important for Carlos.
Sunday, as always was a beautiful day where I had the opportunity to meet the rest of the amazing members of this ward!!
So, last night, I was making calls to members and the district leaders when my comp told me to call a family to congratulate them on their new baby. He gave me the phone and thought it would be funny to give me the wrong number. So I called some random family in the ward and when they answered I shouted "CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW BABY!!!!!!"........and then I heard
"What baby?"
And I was like "......uhm.....who are you?" Then my comp started to laugh, so I tossed the phone to him and ran. Hahaha. He got me good.
Well, that is all for now. Everything is great here. And Salto reminds me of Orange County, because it is HOME to the oranges and the best orange juice in the world!
I love the Lord and I love this work. I know without a doubt that this is the true church of Christ.
