So, I don´t have too much time, BUT, I am loving Maldonado so much! It´s interesting coming from Montevideo, because in Montevideo people are SUPER closed, and they don´t talk to you, and if you do get to teach them, they don´t share personal experiences or anything in the charlas. It´s hard to teach them. But HERE, people are open, and they are just happy. It´s the Number 1 tourist area in Uruguay, and it´s always sunny and happy. So, I´m pretty happy! And the members are unbeleivable! The bishopbric of all the wards are on top of everything, and they are always getting the ward excited to share the gospel, I love it! The morale is just super high! So I´m excited. And the zone is super great, the missionaries all get along and are ready to work. It´ll be fun working with them this change.
The church is true! Let your light shine everyday. I was reading the sermon on the mount recently, and it´s interesting when the lord calls us the salt of the earth. I never understood that, but I realized recently what that means. In the Lord´s time, salt was a token of a covenant that was made. When he says that salt without flavor is good for nothing, he´s saying that He made a covenant with God to perform the Atonement, and save us FROM our sins. WE are the salt (Or token) of that covenant, and if WE lose our flavor, the atonement was good for nothing. SO, SHINE!!!!!!!! We are meant to be different from the world, let the world know that!
I love you all, I hope that you have a great week!
