July 14, 2014

This week has been kinda crazy. Probably one of the most unusual weeks of my mission haha. But it was good!

Sorry I don’t have a whole lot of time so I am going to give you a quick overview of the week!  

Wednesday I went out on divisions with elder Vargas in barrio 6. It went good. It was cool being back with Elder Vargas again and we had a great day full of contacting. It was amazing how basically every single visit we had fell through but for some reason it happened! We contacted a wwwhhhoollleeee lot. haha. And we found some really good people. So it paid off well! 

Thursday we had interviews with President Smith and had an awesome capacitation. He taught us about how we need to teach in a very direct and clear way. Sometimes we are so worried about not offending people that we forget to save them. He taught us how to teach the doctrine as it is in the scriptures and explain it so that they can understand. And then called us all (The entire zone of artigas) unto repentance. It was pretty intense. If I had more time, I would explain a little more but it is one of the experiences that has marked my mission.

Friday, I went with Elder Naea to salto to rehearse for the charla foganera we are going to have over there. It was fun and we got to go make a few visits in my old area in Salto. I am super excited to get the chance to go and sing with salto the 27th. ITS GOING TO BE SO AWESOME!!! We have been practicing for the fireside here in Artigas and the spirit is so strong. It is going to change this place! whoop whoop! 

Saturday we put on our obra misional activity for open house in the church. We played the iron rod. Basically we ran a rope through the entire church and put different temptations in every room to keep them from getting to the end (ex. a warm room when it’s cold outside, friends doing the wrong things, futbol, bailes, etc) and blindfolded them and sent them through an obstacle course. It was a blast! 

Sunday! We had the most spiritual sacrament meeting ever! The bishop spoke with the stake president and we sang a musical number in the middle. And at the end, the stake president asked elder naea to sing the closing song....oohhh my gosh. Not a dry eye in the room. It was so powerful. He sang I know that my Redeemer lives. I wish every Sunday could be like that! 

Well sorry that this has been so short. I have got to run. 

Let’s all try a little bit harder to be a little bit better this week! I love you all! 

UN abrazo grande, 

Elder Staffieri
