Having another asado!

It's sorta hard to see, but yes, those are just a couple of horses hanging out in front of the church.  

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Mothers day! I loved talking with my family, and it made me happy to be able to see their faces. 

This past week has been good here in Belloni. We are working hard to talk with lots of people. Last night a couple of people approached us in the street at started to talk to us. The people almost never approach us, so I thought something was a little fishy. We asked the man who had started talking with us if we could walk to his house. He accepted, and we walked to his house and sat down with him in front of his house to teach him. After we started talking to him we quickly found out that he was crazy. Haha. I don’t want that to sound mean or anything, but he really was crazy. Various people that were walking by in the street stopped while they were walking by and just stared at us talking with this man. It was a really odd situation. This guy was just saying a bunch of weird things and the people watching were probably like, “Look the crazy guy is talking to the missionaries.” Oh! I almost forgot to mention! There was a crazy girl there also who kept on staring at my companion and kept trying to touch his knee, and then was like, "I am pregnant"...and the crazy guy was like, "Congratulations!" Then they started holding hands and cuddling....and it turns out they were cousins…..

This week we also had a huge ward activity with all of the priesthood leaders in the ward. There are two people in the ward that work in the cooking business, so they made some awesome food for everyone. Then we had a serious ping pong game and it was tons of fun. The people here are surprisingly good at ping pong. 

Other than that we had to do some traveling to old town Montevideo to get some paperwork done. It was a fun trip. 

I hope you are all doing well!
