Did I mention that we had to ride the bus to Montevideo.....again?

At least we had a good view.

A Montevideo otra vez.

Ooopa Che! (the couch)
This past week was great despite the fact that Elder Cabrera and I had to travel to the city again. Luckily, the next time I have to make that trip will be my last. He had to go sign some documents, so I pretty much just had to wait around all day. 

This week we were able to find some new people to teach which was awesome. Also, to end off the week we decided to head out to a village that is pretty far away. There is a ward over there with about 5-10 active members. We went out there to see if we could help them out a little bit. There are only a couple of buses that head out there, so we made the decision to stay until the last bus, that would pass by right before the end of the day. It was kind of an interesting decision to stay until later, considering that we didn’t know where we were...but we decided to stay. We felt like there was something there that we needed to do. We roamed around and talked with people and we were able to serve a few people. Late in the night, we found a little old lady that was sooo happy with our visit. When we walked in the door I saw a picture frame of the First Presidency hung on her wall. She said she never would have imagined that the missionaries would pass by to visit her. (They took out the Elders from that village a while ago.) She was thrilled by our visit! I am glad that the Lord was able to use us to cheer her up.
Y si?

I am doing great! I hope that you all have  a great week!
