Hello everyone! Hope your week was fantastic. Things here in Santa Maria are good! Both me and my comp are new in the area so we've been doing a lot of street contacts and trying to find God´s elects! We´re in a rich neighborhood so when we knock doors no one wants to talk to us, but Brazilian culture says if someone asks for a cup of water you MUST give it to them, so we ask for a lot of water to start conversations! It´s worked out well, and we found a family to work with, so we've been blessed!
2. District Meeting
This week was my first district meeting with my new district! I gave a training on "Teaching with Power" that I hope fired up my Elders seek the Spirit while they teach! Every night I get to call everyone in our district and talk to them about how things are going and help them resolve issues in the area and stuff, so it´s been fun to serve!
3. We´re coming for you less actives
The Bishop gave us a less active list, so we bought a map and have been contacting every one of them! It´s sad to see some people who literally deny us, but the joy of some peoples faces when they see that the Church cares about them is priceless! I`m loving it.
We´re teaching a woman named Lucinda who is super special! Her husband and both her sons committed suicide at different points of her life, so it´s been amazing to see her joy as she learns about the Plan of Salvation! We´re also teaching a little teenager who wants to get baptized, but his dad worships statues so that makes things difficult, but the Lord will provide a way for Gabriel!
Remember your baptism covenants in Mosiah 18:8-10
