1. Carnaval and a new transfer
Well things are a popping here in Brazil for the yearly national party called "carnaval". It´s basically a week straight of partying and apostasy. Luckily my mission is basically the Idaho of Brazil, so things here are pretty calm. We started a new transfer and me and Elder J. Silva are pretty excited! We've got some great things planned. I absolutely love the spirit we feel day to day, makes everything SO worth it.
2. Teaching Seila
So we've been working a lot with the family of Eduarda who got baptized recently. All her siblings and her mom are members, so now we´re just working with her grandma! She´s truly a special lady, but can never make it to church cause she takes care of the great grandma. This week we prepared a special lesson on Christ´s Atonement and the spirit was so strong. It was amazing.
Joseph Smith once said that "all things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to the Atonement of Jesus Christ" and I truly testify that that is true! We owe everything to Him. Now we just need to have faith in him, repent of our sins, be baptized, and endure to the end.
3. Domingo do Amigo- Santa Marta
So we decided to apply the domingo do amigo (friend's Sunday) here, cause we´re in the best ward in the mission! So we challenged every member to bring a friend, and sacrament meeting was packed!!! The talks were perfect and everyone left better than they entered.
4. Miracles at every moment
Just this morning one of the couples we´re teaching called us and asked if we could go to marriage office to help them get married! We were SO stoked, casue they´re being taught for more than a year, and this morning we put in the paperwork to get them married! God is good to us.
Love you all:)
