These past couple of weeks have been extremely busy, and I have had very little time to write the blog lately.
So far things have been going well. We have lots of investigators and João, who was recently baptized! João is also going to get married today. The "casamanto" (entry papers) is going to last about 2 hours and I will be there.
|Recife Brazil Temple|
I also have another investigator who is taking a 7 hr bus ride to the temple. She is going to the Recife Brazil Temple. I am truly inspired and amazed of the dedication the members have out here to do the Lords will. Its not easy to take a 7 hr bus ride, let alone, provide food, etc on the trip. I am so thankful to have temples so close to home back in the USA. I hope we all take full advantage of the blessings we can receive by helping others and doing the Lords will in the temple.
One day we went out to do the Lords work this week, and we went to Belem. Afterwards, we then helped some missionaries go the the hospital and worked in their area.
On Saturday, the Lord put everyone in our path that we needed to help, and it helped us organize the baptism of John and we STILL had 5 other investigators in church. We where blessed.
The Book of Mormon:
We have been walking around with the book of Mormon everyday. When we where walking to our house from a meeting a man asked about the book and he said he knew lots of members of the church and he wanted to learn more about it. Then he said he felt liked he wanted to read the book. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! I could see his sincerity, and his desire to learn more about our Savior, and I couldn't have been more thrilled to be the Lords tool to bring one more soul back home to our Savior, Redeemer, Mentor...Jesus Christ.
