Janice giving cooking lessons to Ruben. Here they are making a pot of vegetable chicken soup. Ruben loves soup and chicken so it was natural to combine them and give him both!Watching General Conference in a room in the Church in Rocha. There was a small TV and it was broadcast in English. The sessions were live but with the time difference the Saturday morning session started at 1PM and the afternoon session at 5 PM and the Priesthood session at 9PM. We then caught the 11:30PM bus as was home at 12:30AM. Then Uruguay had a time change so we lost an hour. Sunday Morning session started at 2PM and the afternoon session at 6PM and we were on the 8PM bus for La Paloma. Conference was great! Left to Right: Elder Richard Jones, Elder Woods, Elder Stapley, Elder Hegerhorst (standing) Hermana Alicia Taylor, Elder Curtis Merritt, Elder David Delbar, Elder Wheeler.
Between the sessions of General Conference we had a baptism. Sheila was baptized. She visits her Grandmother in our Branch almost every Sunday and she wanted to be baptized and her parents said that would be great. They are not members but have seen that she loves to attend and the good that the Gospel has brought into the lives of their other relatives. Janice wants to put her in a suitcase and bring her home with us!
A few of the Branch members at a going away party for Elder Richard Jones. Elizabeth hosted the party and we had a great time! She always makes way to much food but it is always awesome.
The Branch did a service project for the City of La Paloma. 11 people participated and we all had a great time.
