Elder Webster

Hey Family, how’s everyone doing?  This week we changed P-day from Monday to Wednesday because there is a big festival in town. It’s a cowboy festival and people come from all over Uruguay and Argentina and Paraguay to see it. I guess Tacuarembo is the cowboy capital for South America south. We are going to go today as our pday. 

Last week was a pretty rewarding week. Sandra came back from vacation and went to church and bore her testimony about her conversion during the fast and testimony meeting. It was really moving and a lot of the members were really surprised by the extent of her conversion. Many members went up after her to share their testimonies commenting about Sandra and her faith. A Felt very blessed to have been the missionary that helped her come to her conversion. 

Sara couldn’t attend church this last week, because she was sick in her bed and didn’t have the strength to get out of bed. We went to her house later that day to give her a blessing. When we got to her house she explained that ever since she started going to church things had started going better in her life. She was going through a tough divorce and had fear of losing her children, without having a job she thought the judge would give custody to the Father. But after going to church she received the help she needed in all of these areas, with work, her kids, and with the judges. She said she felt very blessed and that she had gained a great gratitude for the power of prayer and the power of the Book of Mormon. She explained that we had taught her son one evening without her present we taught him about the Book of Mormon and he began to read everyday and to say his prayers everyday. She was very touched that her son would do such a thing since he disliked religion. He is 12 years old, and his name is Facundo.  Sara told us that she wants to be baptized and her son would like to also. We set a baptismal date for the 30th of March. 

Please Pray for Sara and Facundo. We also have another little boy who will be baptized the 16th of March. His Name is Anthony. 

I didn’t receive any packages or mail this week. I`m still waiting for all of those things that you sent, the one Christmas package, debit card, and all of the other packages you said you were going to send. I think sending an envelope package is better for future. 

I was really hoping the debit card was going to come this week because I wanted to buy a souvenir at this cowboy festival. I’m a little discouraged with this whole mail system!

We’re moving!!! Where are we going to live? What part of town?

I didn’t finish my letter from last week so I’m sending it next Monday. Sorry.

Training is fine, just stressful. We are getting a little more used to each other. At first it was a little odd, I’ve been with Latinos for so long. But we are having great experiences together and I think we are going to have a great Change together. 

Transfers are next week, so I’ll talk to you guys on Tuesday. 

Love you Guys and thanks for everything

Love Elder Webster
