It´s so crazy that another week has come and gone. When I was starting out, the mission really felt slow, but time is starting to fly. Anyway, from all the pictures I´m receiving, it seems like you have had an interesting/stressful week. I´ll be praying for you guys that everything in the house gets fixed up real fast.
So this week was awesome! On Tuesday, my sweet comp had a meeting in Montevideo, so I spent a bit of time in Nueva Helvecia (an area about thirty minutes away from Juan Lacaze). OH MY GOODNESS Nueva Helvecia is beautiful! There are a lot of trees and green areas and I just loved walking around and taking everything in. I got to serve with Hermana Tate (a cute hermana in my district who is from California and went to BYU before the mission as well) and Hermana Salaberry (an eighteen-year-old from Montevideo who is serving a "mini-mission" for three weeks). It was so fun learning more about these hermanas, especially because Hermana Salaberry is a convert of a few months. Our day together was a typical mission day...we walked lots and knocked on lots of doors but people weren´t home. But you know what? To end the day, God gave us a miracle! We ended the day talking to a sweet lady and she let us into her house and we taught her about prayer!
Hermana Ventura and I saw another miracle on Saturday!
