Working Hard and Having Fun

1. Baptism of Fernando
This week I was super happy to see our friend Fernando enter into the waters of baptism! We found him my first week here, took him to church twice, and he decided to be baptized! It was a testimony builder for me to see his pure desire to follow Christ and how baptism and joining the church is the way to do that! Super happy day<3

2. Invite everyone to come unto Christ
As missionaries, especially in Brazil, we talk with so many people every day that its impossible to keep track of them all, so I decided I would invite everyone I talked to come to Church on Sundays, and give them a chance to use their faith. Well this week, a member of the bishopric called us to the hall and low and behold there was a woman we had talked to that week! She liked her experience and asked to be baptized #blessings

3. Teach nothing save repentance
I have never worked so hard in my life to truly try and fulfil this promise, and this week we had 16 new investigators. The Lord is truly taking care of us as we strive to do His work!

4. Funny quotes from the week
A member was giving a sacrament talk yesterday and talked about how Satan is always trying to drag us away from the path and was like "He´s literally always out there to get you. Satan doesn´t have a P-Day! He´s on the job 24/7!" Also on exchanges with the assistent this week we realized that we had already given our Book of Mormons out, and he said "We better hurry home and get some more or people will think we´re Jehovah's Witnesses!"

Love you all!
The scripture of the week is 3 Nephi 27:13-16 #ReadIt&YoureCool
