This has been an amazingly different week! Full of adventures for sure! We are going strong! I´ll share an amazing story!
Yesterday we had just finished an appointment, and were going headed home to have planejamento semanal (weekly planning session) and I saw a scale in the pharmacy door, and was all “hey lets weigh ourselves!” so we went and I was taking off my jacket, and a man walked right in front of us weighed himself, and said “Oh! I’m sorry! Were you going to use the scale?” and left. cool. We weighed ourselves, and left, and passed in front of him again, and he said ” sorry, but what church are you guys from? We told him, and he started to tell us his life story, how he wastes all his money, and buys alcohol, and women, and how he went to jail and that he lost his girlfriend, and was feeling really lost. He said that he was looking for a base a foundation for his life. He tried all the churches, but none of them helped him change as a person. He said “I will follow your church.” We got his address, and it turns out that that exact house we received a reference from a member!]
The Lord works in mysterious ways! Imagine if we hadn’t
stopped, we would have never even seen that man.
We went to a museum today! It was really cool! I love you have a fantastic week!
I have had an amazing week! Our whole mission met with President Neil L Anderson this week, It was so amazing and spiritual. I am so thankful for my Savior, and this amazing opportunity to serve a mission!
We are working a lot with members, and less actives to really keep this marvelous work moving.
I am so happy that you guys are doing good! I pray for you every day.
This week was totally crazy! Wednesday morning I had to take my companion to the hospital, because she was throwing up for 2 days straight. They gave her an iv with anti nausea medicine and sent us home haha, oh Brasil. I made a little soup for her, and some jello The next day she was good as new! Hooray! Back to work!
We have been really praying and working hard to get new investigators, and you know what, the lord really leads you when you seek His help. We ran into a young woman who was really searching for answers in her life! She knows a lot of members of the church, and even went to church one time 7 years ago. the spirit was so strong, and you can just feel when you have been placed at the right place in the right time.
We had a missionary return from the mission, and one who leaves tomorow! There is a lot of power in this little branch! The Elders also had a baptism!
This week we get to have a conference
with Neil L Anderson! He is coming to our mission, and for the first time we will all be together as a mission! I cant wait! What a treat! We are so blessed!
I love you!
