yesterday we had 2 meetings. one with the ward mission leaders of the stake and we capacitated them for a hour and a half on how to run the plan that is taking place here in south america. every ward was doing it in there own personal way. and so we got everyward running on the same page in the stake. and i t is set up in a way for all the wards to be able to be auto sufficient with the plan. and not get lazy with it.

right afterward we capacitated the sumo conceo on the same exact thing. so now the stake will be running alot smoother and without hicups.

speaking of this plan we had one of our first miricles. as we know in john 21 with the appstles fishiing if we try to do it in our own way there will be no results. but when we through our nets to the right. or the right way. or the way of the lord we will recieve all the blessings that the lord has for us. 

if you remeber 2 weeks ago i mention a lady that was really angry with the church and she didnt want anything. she had been intative for the last 9 years and has never gone to church in that time..... we put here on the list for the plan that we just got rowlling in this ward.. and she showed up to church at of the blue. she came in and apolagized for being rude to us and that she is ready to repeant and come back to the church.. if we do it in the lords way miricles take place

this week we were also able to help out a companionship that was fighting. they had never gotten along all change. i am looking back and i am blessed to been able to have had 4 straight changes in a row of helping animate my comp. (during those changes they just wanted to go home) but i was able to learn and grow to be able to help them out. after the meeting with the comp that was disanimateed we all left the comps made up and my comp asked me how i did that. i need to change from a math and science major to a cominicater and a motivater becasue i did it so well.

i feel it is a masive blessing that the lord has given me. it was some of the hardest 4 changes of my mission but i grew so much.

i love you all and keep working.

adam one of the ward mission leaders here in tacuerembo went to your misison. he remembers you. his name is elder alvez.

he said you were a beast and worked your butt off.

this week i had a very interesting study with alma 36. it is super powerfull. the reason that anyone wants to share the gospel is because they understand the saving power of the attonement. so that made me think is that true. why would someone not want to. well they are scared. (they dont understand the power of the attonemnt to help them) they dont want to( well thats claro) they dont now who to ... so when it comes doewnt to it if someone does not share the gospel it is because they do not understand the attonment. we cant make all the excuses in the world. but to be truley converted to the gospel as alma the younger and then all of the conversions that alma the younger and the sons of moshiah had came to the same out come. they wanted to share the gospel with all there heart might mind and strength for the rest of there life and they did. if you look at alma 36 24 he taught sin cesar so people could come to the joy that he had felt for medeio of the attonment it is something very powerful and strengthening. look at alma 20 1 king lamoni wanted to take the missionaries to his fathrer who was not a member. 

we are working hard with the leders of the stake and aswell as the leaders in our ward to get the plan for south amereica rolling. we are helping alot of the leaders understand how the things could be ran and how they need to be ran ino order to achieve success.

this week we had concilio and it was a really good learning experience. we came together and listed out the problems that we had in our zones. wrote them up on the white board and then we split up into groups and we came up with solutions that were clear and easy. then we presented them to the concilio and we were able to take all the new idea and aply them to the zone. we were thinking of our own area and how to aply all of these things that we had learned. all of it had to do with the plan that is going on in south america. 
i have been blessed and was able to learn this in rivera and the ward was already doing it. and then i was able to put it in place in cerro. and now i have the plan internilize and i am able to aply it here as well. it is super interesting and super powerfull. it fits perfectly if done right.
we were thinking about it and it is a perfect summary of the red handbook. and it is a very agresive plan. in the sence if not run to a T, it wont gice the results. 
so this week we have been meeting with all of our ward leaders and as well as the stake leaders and stake president. we are meeting with the stake president wenseday. 

but crazy enough the hardest one to help them understand the plan is the one that has no part with it. the bishop has nothing to do with the plan. it even says on the plan that he is not to be in the meetings and involed. but something i have learned on the mission is that some times people dont understand after the first visit. you just keep going back and have patcience with them untill they get it.

last night we passed by a lady that is sealed in the temple but inactive. ¿como? no se. but she went off on us. and said how she didnt have time for the church see has to help her familt out and she basically told us to leave and she didnt need the sacrament to be saved. it was getting pretty heated. and then i asked her if i could say something. i bore a super simple testimony. super short and then asked if we could leave with a prayer. she said yes and we entered into her patio from the street and then i said the prayer. afterwards she asked us to come back tomorrow night. so we will go back to here tonight with someone in the bishopric. 

just goes to show even though i wanted to tell her the truth that she is condeming herself by saying theses things as a sealed in the temple deciple of christ. it would of just ended worse off. you just got to bring the spirit to them even if they dont want it. but it will over power the wickedness. 

we have seen here alot of cases like that. were i could see the devil working in the people. 

as well i was asked to give a talk in church. and i was asked to give it about 5 minutes before church started. but i was prepared. i had my go to talk. 3 nephi 10 4 6 and 8. and its super true family and future family. i dont know what it is in english. pero yo voy a llorar y gemir por la perdida de mi pariente y amigos. 
because i could of done more to save them and i did not do it.

for concilio we read and studied before hand the book of john and compare the relationship of heavely father and his son jesus christ. long story short the things i learned brought me to the point off repentence. or changing my whole thought proccess on the trinady. and the temple. i need to become more converted to the father. i did not have a true testimony of him. but christ testifies of him. all he does comes from the father. and the father testifies of the son. its just something very interesting.

i hope everthing is going good at home
i love you all

i am now in tacurembo i am her with elder woodcock. he has been comps with some of my comps so it was cool to talk about past bolasos that our comps did for fun in the mission. 
our ward is a good sized ward there is about 100 to 115 in the attendence. so it is one of my biggest wards and it is my first ward that we are the only missionaries in it

in our ward we have all of the southern half of tacuerembo. we have a few pueblitos that are super far away that have members in it as well. and they come in every sunday for church.

we have bikes in our area so we are booking it abound everywhere we go. i was pretty sore the first couple days but now i am goetting used to it and its super effective. we have been able to triple the work load with the bikes. 

we have been working alot with the members to understand the purpose as members in respect to the gathering of isreal. they were all called to there street do efect a work. they are Gods servents in this part of his vineyard. 

its very interesting to think about the alagorey of the olive tree in respect to the gathering of isreal. Adam i will send you the 10 questions i promised on mothers day next week. i finally got a hold of them.

but it is super pòwerfull to know the plan that god has for us. one that he has always had with us. and goes back all the way to the time of abraham. 

tonight we are going to leave to montevideo for concilio. we have it tommorrow. to prepare for it we were to study the relation of christ and The Father in the book of john. it is a very interesting relationship. the importance of having a christ and the how God could not do the attonement because it would take away of the the law and justice and mercey. and if they break that they would seize to be a GOD. it is very interesting to think how that could be. but then we think well they once where what we now are and they are what we will become. we are continually progressing and learning even when we come to that point in our progression. we are constantly learning. there is no end. 

so how important are our desisions that we make

below is me and my comp. we rode out to a pueblito for a visit
