We had an incredible week!
On Tuesday we traveled to Montevideo (6.5 hours) for a leadership council with our mission president which was great! We had the opportunity to study the scriptures together, share ideas and receive direction from the Lord!
On Wednesday, we visited Hermana Chivel who was sick before, but now she is 100% better and she left to work with us and visit her neighbors to share the gospel!! What a dedicated daughter of God!!! We found Palacio and Nilda who are willing to listen! The Lord´s work is always 100x better when the members are involved and I can testify of that!
Thursday we had divisions and they were amazing! I worked with Elder Campos (got to use some Portuguese, hes from Brazil) and we had a great lesson on the Restoration with 3 new investigators (all young men and women)! You could see how interested they were in knowing which of all the churches was true! I also got to hold a pig!
On Friday, we found Aida, who is a member who was very sick as a result of the cold. For those of you who dont know, its winter down here in Uruguay, and its Freezing!!! WHOO. But yeah, we were able to comfort Aida which the scriptures and sincere prayer! A sweet hermana (:
We also taught the Sponda family the importance of 2 questions asked in Alma 32:10 &11
Saturday was amazing. We taught the importance of family prayer to Leticia Olivera and she came to church and promised to prayer in her family everyday!!!!
We taught Elba the Doctrine of Christ in 3rd Nephi 11 using Christ´s words!!! We taugh Nely and her husband Vicente (who looks like an Uruguayan Albert Einstein!) ahahaha
Our main message that day to everyone was to leave everything behind and follow Christ! I know this is true!!
