Well this is to make up for the lame letter i sent last week!! this week was a little bit more exciting and there is a little bit more things to write about today! well to start off we had an awesome service project on saturday, we went to the house of the second counseler in the ward and we put the cement roof on the new section of his house! it was sooo cool!! we built a roof! it was really awesome, but of course being the 4 youngest people (and with 0 experience in building houses) we had the fun job of moving buckets full of cement, but we had fun anyway! then after finishing the roof we had a big "asado" or in other words an uruguayan barbaque! so good!
then on the side of the mission work.... we finally were able to get in contact with a couple more of our investigators this week, and we found out why claudio hasn`t been going to church, and thats because first he got sick, then he relapsed back into drugs and felt guilty and decided not to go to church, but we talked to him and he wants to keep going and he wants to stop smoking and give up drugs but he is just struggling. he didn`t come to church yesterday, but hardly anyone came! it was weird it was like everyone decided to take a sunday off!! usually we have like 45 people in church and only 33 came. but whatever! Then we had a charla with a lady named maria that the missionaries found in april, is taking steps to be baptized!! she is going to stop smoking and has decided to better help her family she is going to break up with her boyfriend, and is going to be baptized the first of october! its a little far away but she basically decided all this by herself this last week!! so we are super excited for her!
That is about all that is going on around here, but good things are coming! thanks for everything and i hope you have a great week!
