So on Tuesday, we visited Gladis Diaz, who is a less active member. She is incredibly nice. We shared with her the lesson of the Plan of Salvation and she loved it. We know that because she told us that she loved it, while tearing up. It´s a very special Plan, where the Lord is the author so it naturally lifts one up. We also were able to read the Book of Mormon with our progressing investigator Maria!! We are so happy to see her progress. She is incredibly intelligent (has a library full of physics and chemistry books). And she uses alot of reason but is learning to trust God and have more faith in Him.

On Wednesday, we taught an incredible lesson on the Law of Chastity with Maria. Not only did she agree with everything, but she said something that assured us of her understanding of this divine law: "Well, if everyone kept this commandment, there wouldn´t be as many problems in the world today!" Correct.

On Thursday, I had the opportunity to do divisions with Elder Hodges again!!! He came over to my area and we worked. We had another lesson with Gladis Diaz and taught the Resurrection, the Final Judgement and the Kindgoms of Glory. The Holy Ghost was present in this lesson. Even the Gladis´daughter came in to join us. We had the opportunity to sing "The Lord is My Shepard" to many mothers for an "early mothers day gift" Elder Hodges sang tenor and I sang melody sometimes and alto as well. It was such a beautiful day!

Friday, we contacted all morning getting to know many children of God. I love meeting new people. It´s interesting to see their beliefs, what they think about our church and whether they would be interested or not in growing their faith in Christ. We taught Maria about service in the church and the law of the fast! We gave two blessings that day to a baby girl who was sick, and an 8 year old son of Juan Carlos (an investigator). It was a special experience because after both blessings, they both immediately felt much better. It´s an honor to excersize the Priesthood of God.

On Saturday we went to a baptism in the stake center because our investigator Maria wanted to see what its like! A little girl, Belen, was baptized and the service was beautiful!
We had a lesson with a new investigator (Rosario) and when the Spirit was strongest, I asked her if she would be baptized on the 20th of June and she said yes!!!

On Sunday, there were elections here in Salto and it was MOTHERS DAY! I got to talk to my mom and it was amazing being able to see her! Happy (late) mothers day to all! "The title "Mother" is a sacred one". Dont ever forget that!

I can testify that there is no other work similar to this work. It is sacred, ordained of God and eternal!
Until next week!
