|This is what a BUS ride looks like at 3am|
How to lose an entire day in a terminal... Brought to you by Hermana Sanovich and Hermana Mattos. Well you got it folks this change it seems that the buses are just going to continue being a huge part of my life. However, this time they also include more hours in a terminal. So this week was changes and as many of you know that Hermana Wagner is now safe and sound in her home in Lindon, Utah and with her family. What you may not know is that she left me in a bus terminal at 3 am to get home...
Wednesday - we sent her on her way to Montevideo and I stayed in the terminal with Hermana Reyes and Hermana Galvez until around 6:30 in the morning, when Hermana Reyes left to go to her new area. Once everyone had left me and Hermana Galvez were able to go to the church and to stay there for a few hours before going back to the terminal to wait for my new companion HERMANA TAYLOR!!! She is from California and is absolutely AMAZING!!
Thursday - we were able to work a little in our area before we were back on a bus and in the terminal again...so that Hermana Taylor could go with Hermana Galvez to Dolores so Hermana Mattos and I could travel to Montevideo Friday morning. They left at around 8 at night and once again we were in the terminal, and the funny thing is that all of the food places in the terminal close at about this time of night so we were just sitting in a terminal doing the most random of things until when our bus left to go to Montevideo.
Friday - we were in Montevideo and had a wonderful concilio (council) with President and Hermana Olsen along with the assistants. They taught us a lot about going back to the basics of missionary work and about focusing on the people that we were teaching so that they could progress. It was a great little conference and before we knew it we were in another terminal waiting for our bus to go back to Mercedes. We got back to Mercedes and waited only a little bit to be able to travel back to Fray Bentos and actually sleep in a real bed!!
Saturday - in the morning we traveled back to Mercedes to get our real companions back and it was about by the time we were all back in our normal areas and with our real companions again.
Sunday - we were able to go to church and to feel the spirit and to learn from the different teachers here in Fray Bentos. It was also a great opportunity for us to go to the baptism of a members son and to participate with yet another musical number. Someone really needs to tell the Uruguayans that I do not sing that well..
Monday - we were able to go to our home away from home in Mercedes and to be with the zone to make some delicious tacos and then to play some UNO.
IT has been a week full of travel/TERMINALS once again and I feel like my email is more of a travel log than anything else. HOWEVER, there is one thing that I learned this week that I wanted to share with you all and it makes it as this week´s challenge..

CHALLENGE- We watched a video clip that comes from a movie where Brad Pitt is fishing, now President never told us which movie it came from however if you want to look it up it might make more sense. NOW the important thing is that in this clip he is trying to catch this fish that was trying really hard to get free. As part of this he entered into the river and was willing to dive in to the cliffs and everything just to get the fish he was set on catching. Now this applies to us all as miembro (member) missionaries as being fishers of men and being dedicated to sharing the gospel with everyone. It also applies to our goals and being committed to them...this week set a Goal and make a plan to stick to it no matter what, even if you have to get a little wet. When you accomplish your goal it will be amazing...
