D+C 123:12-13

"For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties and denominations...who are only kept from the truth because they know not where to find it--Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things [out] of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven--these should then be attended to with great earnestness."

Hey guys!

So I don´t have a lot of time, but we are doing good in Lascanito Uruguay!
Our pool of investigators seemed to be getting pretty thin, we didn´t have too many people that wanted to progess. We were teaching this family who seemed really interested, and seemed pretty promising, but something happened, and they don´t want to learn anymore! Their names are Ana-the mom, Erika- the daughter, and Jorge- the son. We think that it´s something to do with Ana´s sister, who is a preacher in an evangelist church in Lascano. We think that she talked to Ana and convinced her that mormons are crazy. We have an appointment with them soon, so we´ll see if we can help them to feel the spirit, but that was pretty discouraging!   But we kept working, and talking to everybody. We´ve REALLY been working with Marianna and Antony. Marianna is the less active mom we´ve been working with, and Antony is her son.   So, she is really starting to come around! She has really been having family issues with her ex boyfriend, and some pretty hard stuff. So we´ve been able to show her that Heavenly Father Really is there for her. Antony is a really timd kid, and all of these issues have really been hard on him. He´s been scared to talk to us, he´s just really timid!  But She and Antony came to church last Sunday, and loved it. They´ve been praying, and reading the scriptures often.  Saturday night we had a Family night with them and Antony really opened up to us. At the end We invited him to be baptized again, and he was so excited! He said he would!      After SO much work with Marianna and Antony these past months, it finally is paying off!!!  There is no way we could have given them up!  The Lord is mindful of them, and is helping  us to help them right now.
There are miracles happening in Uruguay, and I love being here!    I hope that you all have a awesome week!
