Dear Family & Friends,
Mission President Report
Nós tivemos Jean (irmão de membro) na Igreja! Ele gostou e vamos acompanhar ele na terça! Encontramos Mateus ontem também! Ele é o ex-marido de Rose (uma Menas Ativa) e ele prometeu ir na Igreja esse próximo Domingo. Nossa meta principal essa semana é trabalhar em mais união com a ala para ensinar mais lições com os membros.
We had Jean (brother of a member) in the Church. He liked it and we will follow up on Tuesday. Also met Matthew yesterday. He is the former husband of Rose (an active member) and he promised to go to church this coming Sunday. Our main goal this week is to work more in union with the members and to teach more lessons with members.
Another week. Like I said, I could not write FICTION this good...I'll give you the details in due time.
We set the cameras on timer. I am about 2 hours from Colatina and 30 from the beach. Ok, thanks for trying I'll see if a Brazilian can help me get the envelope and do it the bank way. Yeah, don't tell Ashley, but I'm going to send her a gift card in the mail :) it's for Sonic. A member in Kansas gave it to me. The city I'm in is Cariacica they say it: "kar-ee-uh-see-kuh" with a roll on the r so it's more like 'kah-ti-a-see-kuh'.
Yeah we need to get approval from São Paulo...and then Salt Lake, so we might not move until another week or two. Happy Labor Day! I hope it is a good day of peace and rest.
Tell Cathy there's a clothing store in my area called: "Duda" and I laughed out loud when I saw it because I thought of "Doo-dah-dee!" I Love Cathy and Nani! Please tell them.
That's okay, I heard it said once that a bad day at fishing still beats any good day at work! Hahaha.
I am glad to hear that. Today's Youth need to remember the truth that once was spoken, "...the field is white already to harvest; and lo, he that thrusteh in his sickle with his might, the same layeth up in store that he perisheth not, but bringeth salvation to his soul"
And I can certainly write Ashley...don't tell her, but I found some blue envelopes like the one in an episode of Dr. Who and I'm gonna send one to her :)
No, I haven't. That should be...interesting. I'm glad you fed the missionaries!
Consecration. Something I have been learning as a missionary. I need to lay it all on the altar. Can you please tell me where that quote comes from?
Also, Russell T. Osguthorpe gives a good picture of surrendering our will to The Lord in a CES Devotional he gave some time ago.
I Love You All, I am not the same, Behold, I am Élder Weaver, I seek not for power, but to pull it down (see Alma 60:36)
