Cerro 8!!!

 GLad to hear that everyone is still doing well and super busy, VAM´ ARRIBA BINGHAM BASEBALL! GO get em Matt! Im pulling for you guys down here, I hope everything goes well! Today has been super crazy, it is the last pday of the change and all the Montevideo zones have permision to go to the temple. So we went!! It was amazing! I havent been in six months and it makes such a big difference! The only problem is that we are the farthest away,  litterally on the opposite extreme of Montevideo, so we got up early and rode on a city bus for a hour and a half to get there. Then we just got back a little bit ago. I don't want to ride buses again for a long time....but it was totally worth it!! 

This week has been great though, the big highlight is changes......I am going to be Elder Gonzalez´s last comp! We are staying together! We are both super excited but both feel kinda goofy thinking that he ends this change and that I'm not that far behind him. It really doesn't feel real because it goes by so fast and every change goes by faster! But we are super pumped to keep working in Cerro 8! This week was great, we had the confirmation of Graciela who is soooo happy! It has been amazing to see the change in her before and after, she is so much happier and I dont really know why! (Alright I do know why but it has been such a drastic change that it has been a shock to us too) Her dad never let us go to her house but he wanted us to come by to meet him this week and so we went kinda nervous, she lives is a pretty rough spot of the nighborhood, and we got there and there was a sketchy group of guys on the corner, and the dad came out and yelled all the rules that he was going to put for us to go, but he will let us go to there house now which is progress! (But we did get out of there at marching speed;) We had awesome visits with Juan this week, he is basically quit smoking which has been a miracle in and off istelf, and has full-heartedly accepted all the other commandments, and is progressing soo well! The only thing was that this week his grandma was hospitalized in a emergency and he had to spend the night and Sunday morning watching her so he couldn't go to church but we talked with him and everything is good, we are just going to have to push his baptism back a little bit, but it is all going to work out. I love this guy so much! Also, update on Katy, she is doing sooo good!! She reads and studies so much and everytime we go to her house she has more questions and is learning so much! She just wants more, she is progressing so well still, I love it! 
We are doing great here and are sooo excited for this next change, I know that the work is being hastened and that we need to be the instruments in His hands!! I love you guys so much, thank you for everything!!
