Week 30 (10 March 2014)

It was a great week!  Wahoo!  The mission is AMAZING and my companion is the bomb.  :)

Segunda- We got invited to a family home evening with a part-member family, a less-active member, and a recent convert.  First miracle, we and didn't have to set-up anything.  This is the perfect example of member missionary work, helping to strengthen the ward and letting the missionaries get involved.  Everyone should do this, plan a FHE [Family Home Evening] and invite friends, less-active [members], and (of course) the missionaries.

Terca- The mom (C~) of a recent convert in the ward said that she would be willing to take our lessons.  She is the sweetest lady, but is a little confused about the Priesthood and the importance of having the actual authority of God in order to baptize, etc.  It was a very frustrating lesson because she said that she knows that the church is true, but then went on to say that she also believes that the [a different] church is true, and so on.  We still love her as if she were family, but it is so sad when someone is this close to the truth, but doesn't understand one IMPORTANT aspect of the restoration.  We will keep working with her and hopefully get somewhere eventually.  :)

Quarta- We ate lunch with a member that I hadn't met before and her cute little girl.  During the entire meal the little girl sang primary songs and told us the story of Branca de Neve (Snow White) at least ten times.  She made our day. Hehe.

Quinta- We had a lesson with a student at the university here in Santa Maria (Camobi).  Her name is P~ and she is very special.  She is very strong in her church, but has curiosity in what others believe.  After we sang a hymn to start out the lesson she asked if she could sing a hymn.  It was super cute that she was also open to share with us her faith.  She also shared a scripture with us.  We are going to teach her again on Wednesday, so we will see what happens.  She is so special though.  :)  Love her.

Sexta- DAY OF MIRACLRES!  We had 9 obvious miracles happen to us today.  It was great.  The Lord put person after person in our path (sometimes literally) today and I know that a lot of good will come from today.

Sabado- V~ and R~ are perfect.  They have been legally married for 16 years (which is rare) and have a 15 year old son.  I have never heard an investigator ask so many inspired/perfect questions during a lesson before, such as "how does God choose/call his prophets?"  They are amazing.

Domingo- out of time... [Missionaries have a limit amount of time to spend on emails.]

Please keep in your prayers these people that I have the opportunity to teach.  Thanks for all of the support!  Love you all!

Te amo.
