Busy Weekend

Friday found E-Team Uruguay leaving Montevideo headed for Melo and Rivera. It was about a 5 hour drive and we were definitely ready to get to Melo where we had supper at the church with Pastor Julio and his family.

On Saturday we helped with a youth event at a community gym. We sang, shared a devotion, and had a blast playing indoor soccer and volleyball. That afternoon we loaded back into our van and made our way to Rivera on the Uruguay-Brazil border.

Sunday we were at St. Teresa Church just outside Rivera. The team sang, performed the skit, gave testimonies, painted faces, twisted balloons, and played volleyball.

We have enjoyed meeting other believers, trying new foods, seeing new places, and learning a different culture.  It is hard to believe our time in Uruguay is almost over.

The remaining members of our team share their perspective of Uruguay:

“I’m so glad I’m here, this a great blessing. Translating has been fun, interesting and a challenge, but I’m blessed I get to do it.  THE FOOD IS AMAZING.” -Daniel

“I love Uruguay. The people here are so nice, but all the dogs bark at me.” -Meg

“I have had an amazing time in Uruguay!  I have definitely come closer to God and He has answered some of my questions for me.  I have some life changing decisions to listen to now.” -Isabella

“It has been an incredible privilege being able to come to Uruguay and experience the culture, while also serving. We’ve met some amazing people who have an undying desire to reach those in this country who do not know Christ and seeing their commitment is inspiring. In just the short amount of time that I have been here I can already identify the moments that I will keep with me and use on my life journey as I grow closer to Christ and discover His plan for my life.”                      – Jacob
