I am sorry that I don't have much time today but we had changes and my new companion is Hermana Kahn from Iquitos, Peru and she is great. We heard from Elder Rasband so that was cool and I will fill you in about that next week but quickly here is the 

Challenge for the week -

Because it is Thanksgiving I would love to have you guys make a list of people you are Thankful for and Why?
Then choose someone from that list and send them a Thank You card...

Season 1 Episode 24 "Primer verano" (First Summer) (11-14-16)

Season 1 Episode 24 "Primer verano" (First Summer)

Well not a lot happened this week. Like nothing happened at all really... 
We got to deal with the weird weather here in 
Uruguay then we also contacted and taught
Hermana Trujillo and Hermana Sanovich
about Christ and the Restoration of the Gospel to the people here in Nueva Helvecia. I think that the biggest news is that this week we will be going to a Conference with Elder Rasband from the Quorum of the 12 Apostles, with the entire group of missionaries from the two missions here in Uruguay. We also will be having changes, and ... drum roll please..... 

I am staying here in Nueva Helvecia, Colonia!!! I will however be getting a new companion who is from Peru and I can not be happier to meet her this Thursday. I look forward to working really hard with her here and having our area grow a bunch... 

The Hermana's BFF's in the REAL
This week in church we had an amazing lesson about Faith and Testimonies and how you really need the one to have the other. It is through our Faith that we are able have a Testimony of the Doctrines of the Gospel. She then talked a lot about how special it is to share our Testimonies and grow our Faith. SO this week I challenge you to read about Faith throughout this week, using talks scriptures and other means... And then to act upon the things that you have learned so that your Faith can grow and your Testimony as well... 

I testify that as your Faith increases that your Testimony will increase and so will your relationship with the Savior. I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have to testify of him every single day, even if it is on the doorstep of strangers. Because I know that he lives and loves us and that through the Atonement we are able to return to live with him again with our families for eternity. 


Thank you all for your love and support until next week,
Hermana Cassidy Sanovich 

Season 1 Episode 23 " When Colonia gets together" (11-07-16)

Season 1 Episode 23 " When Colonia gets together"

So here are some of the highlights from my week here in Uruguay. 
Elder Doloriet, Bogarin, Thompson, Baird

Starting off on Monday here, we got to have our sleepover with the Hermana's from Real and it was so much fun to be able to see a new area for a little bit and talk about life with some Americans. Then on Tuesday we got to have a conference with President and Hermana Olsen and the APs. It was incredible to just go back to the basics and talk about how powerful inviting people to act on the things that they have learned and to take the steps necessary to progress in the gospel themselves... One thing that I loved from this conference was President Olsen's focus on being BOLD and not being afraid or uncomfortable to testify and ask people questions. Then the rest of the week was pretty normal, we did a lot of contacting which is good to plant some seeds here in Nueva Helvecia. Then when we were at church on Sunday the funniest thing happened, while our ward mission leader was bearing his testimony and being really open and spiritual you just hear "the eye of the tiger" song playing really loud outside. I just looked at Hermana Trujillo so that I wouldn't start laughing because it was so funny but it made me feel bad that it interrupted his testimony. But on a spiritual note- church was really good and we got to learn a lot about taking our own initiative... Not a lot of news worthy things happened this week so we will just move along to the challenge... 
Challenge- So there are two parts to this challenge, I was reading my notes from Conference and found Elder Craig Christensen's talk and I loved it so here goes. He talks about Joseph Smith and asks us to complete the following sentence - "Because Joseph Smith was a prophet I can..." So this week I want you guys to be able to complete this sentence and then turn it into an action. Take what you learn and apply it, even the little things can be amazingly helpful to review and reread. 

Les amo mucho, y quiero que ustedes pueden tener una semana de éxito y que pueden saber que Dios les ama y que siempre esta allí para ayudarles con las cosas que necesiten en sus vidas. Gracias por todo del amor y apoyo durante este aventura en mi vida... 
Elder Doloriet, Bogarin, Thompson, Baird 

Thanks to Google Translate...this is what she says - 
      I love you very much, and I want you to have a week of success and that you can know that God loves you. That He is always there to help you with the things you need in your life. Thank you for all of the love and support during this adventure in my life ...
