Week 6 in Ceibal, Salto!

We had a Great week over here!!

On Tuesday, we found and taught Mary!! Incredible lady interested in the Gospel. She has a nine year old son (Cesar) that comes to church! We look forward to continue teaching her this week!!
Also, later that day I had the funniest conversation of the month with a grandma who I am guessing does not like Mormons. We met a guy named Juan while we were contacting the other day and he told us to come back another day. So we came back Tuesday and his grandma answered the door and angrily stared at us. So I said:
"Hi, nice to meet you. Is your grandson Juan home?"
"Really? Where is he?"
"He´s busy."
"Oh, he´s busy. But is he home?"
"Yes."......"But he´s busy."
"But he told us to come by, so you know, he´s probably waiting for us."
"..................okay, fine. I´ll get him"
To finish that day, we had a great lesson on tithing with Maria, who is getting baptized on the 30th!!!

Wednesday, we taugh Ricardo who told us that he was not feeling too well because he no longer had desires to go to church. We shared with him Alma 38:4-5. We talked about this and all the difficult situations in our lives in general. We came to the conclusion that as we trust more in God, we will receive blessings, but more importantly, we will recognize all the many blessings that we already have.

On Thursday, I did divisions with Elder White in his area!!! Elder White, from Utah, started the mission with me and we are very good friends. And this is the first time in the mission that we have shared the same zone!!! (After nearly 21 months!) We had the opportunity to teach about prophets. Also we had a great experience were we contacted a house that we felt we needed to contact. We met Cecilia, who had never met missionaries before. We found out that she doesn´t believe in God, so we explained that He exists  and that our families can be together forever. When we asked if we could share the message with her, she paused..........and said yes. It was a miracle.

On Friday, we taught Hna. Chivel and helped her plan to go to the temple this year!! (Start with the end (temple) in mind) WHOO!!!

On Saturday, I was privleged to give Hugo a baptismal interveiw. It was an incredibly spiritual and uplifting experience to see and feel his testimony. He will be baptized on Saturday.
We had many incerdible experiences this week, had a great stake conference as well.
I know this church is true! I love it!
