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