Sorry it`s been so long! So I`m in El Pinar, about 20 minutes from Montevideo, and it is the BEST! It`s like a beach town, and a forest- there are pine trees everywhere! And the ward is super super super good, it`s like a ward in the states. the members are so ready to help, and the leaders are super supportive. We`ve been trying to find news investigators with the members, It`s something we`re trying to do in the mission. So we`ve been going to every member`s house, and having a family night with them. In the Family night we share D&C 88.73, and explaining to them that the work is Hastening- and they ARE APART of it! We`ve been setting goals with them to invite one of their friend to talk to us by the end of April. We`ve gotten A TON of references, and we are super excited!
So far, we`ve been working with a 17 year old member, who`s been sharing the gospel with his frien Ezequial (also 17) This kid already has a testimony, and has read the book of mormon. It reminds me of my experience with Rudy before the mission- I know I am meant to be here to help Ezequial!
We`re also helping a family- Federico and Marcela, who were references from the hermanas... (There were two hermanas in an area right next to ours, who`s area closed when I came in- So, we are working in 2 areas right now! It`s awesome, there is tons of work!) They are super excited, and are really progressing!!!
I know that the work is the MEMBERS work! Kevin was able to prepare Ezequial read the BOM and gain a testimony ALL without us. Now he`s ready for the Lessons and baptism! Don`t be afraid to open you mouth, the work is changing, and Hastening!
I love you all!! Have a good Week!
