Week 35 (14 April 2014)

Well, this week was an interesting one.  Very interesting.

Segunda-feira- We taught a less active member and her family and talked to them about how we can receive answers through general conference.  She took our promise and challenge seriously and said that this was an answer to her prayers.  :)  (Oh, and I completed 8 months of my mission today!)

Terca-feira- We had a great lesson with our progressing investigator So~.  She really connects with the Joseph Smith story so we watched the video of the Restoration with her.  It was great (except for the fact that the member that was with us started talking in the middle of the first vision.)  Don't do that to the missionaries in your ward please.  It just doesn't work.  Haha.

Quarta-feira- So my companion's mom was very sick lately and we found out more information today about how she is doing and it wasn't good news.  My companion ended-up deciding to go home after a lot of prayer and fasting.  She taught me a lot about how the Lord will truly answer us when we are diligently seeking an answer.

Quinta-feira- We taught So~ again and this time it was about the Word of Wisdom... dun dun DUN!  With the help of a member and a lot of help from the Spirit she agreed to live the Word of Wisdom.  It was a miracle, truly.

Sexta-feira- We thought that my companion would be leaving next week because that is when we have transfers, but President called today and she has a flight early Saturday morning.  We ran around all day packing her things and getting her ready to leave.

Sabado- She left at 3am.  :(  But the Lord's work had to continue.  I am in a trio with the other Sisters of Camobi until I go to SAO BORJA!  Yep I am being transferred, which kind of stinks because we found the perfect investigator today!  She accepted to be baptized without a second thought.  We met her through a reference from a member who lives in another part of Santa Maria.  N~'s house collapsed a few weeks ago and this member S~ has been building it for her with no charge.  After this selfless service she wanted to know more about the church.  How wonderful that the Lord was able to work miracles through a willing and worthy member of the church.

Domingo- We said goodbye to everyone today.  :(   But, in Sacrament Meeting there were 4 baby blessings.  How cool is that, and all of the babies have been born since I got here.  It has been a fun ride in Camobi and I am excited for the next adventure!
