This week was so awesome! To start off, we had divisions Tuesday. I was with Hermana Sablan (who has only been here for about a month), so I was the senior companion. It went so well! Everyone was letting us into their house and we had such amazing lessons! It was awesome too because I could understand almost everything and I could respond. It was an awesome experience! We had some interesting lessons that made us laugh and ton, and also spiritual lessons :)
On Thursday we had a conference with ALL of the missionaries in all of Uruguay! It was so cool!! It took 9 hours by bus to travel down to Montevideo and 9 back. All within about 24 hours. Elder Christensen from the Seventy came and it was so awesome. We talked about how we could be better missionaries and everything. Such a great experience. The work of the Lord is so awesome!!
This week I lost my voice, so that was interesting teach haha. I just had to fight through it. Its better now though! I think I’m getting allergies, cause I’m coughing a lot.
There’s not a ton to update on, but there I think we are going to have a baptism the 29th of this month!! His name is Kevin and he’s 10 years old. He is so incredibly smart. Its awesome. I’m so excited!
This week my comp and I have been working really hard and we are working with new investigators. Oh! And yesterday at church, we had SO many less actives come to church!! It was so amazing to see them walk through the door! There is a less active family who hasn’t gone to church in over a year, and the dad said thanks to us, missionaries, they came to church, and they want to continue to go. Its so amazing!
I was reading 1 Nephi 8 this morning and it talks about the tree of life. I love the symbolism in this chapter. We all need to figure out where we stand. I love you all!
