Dear Family & Friends,
Mission President Letter
Essa semana foi boa. A gente cortou alguns pesquisadores para focalizar mais em outros. Eu e meu companheiro vamos focalizar muito em achar novos e trazer-los para a Igreja. Vamos incluir mais os membros. Temos algumas visitas com membros marcados já! Eu e meu companheiro serviremos ao Senhor.
This week was good. We cut some researchers to focus more on others. My companion and I'll focus a lot on finding new and bring them to the church. We will include more members. We have some visits with already marked members! My companion and I will serve the Lord.
We are all here for a reason, on the earth. I hope you are all well. I am glad to hear about football! (haha, you know me well).
This might be a Glimpse Into Gethsemane for her. But she can take it. If she couldn't, The Lord wouldn't have given her this right now.
Man, I am whipped! I am not gonna lie. I feel like Irmão Felipe when he got home and slumped on the couch and cried, "Please, Take Care of ME!!!" hahaha.
Joaquim is firmer than ever in the Gospel. We also found a new ride for him to Church that will work out well than the last one. We are also visiting Andrea more because she is kind of lonely without Rebeca there. She had to go visit her Dad in Minas or someplace.
I am quite anxious to delve into the Elijah Project, I'm not gonna lie. Sounds like a good way to get the ward focused. We have a ward integration activity coming up this week, too. It should be fun! :)
I've already said this before, but our Ward Mission Leader is a stud! He's planning the activity with our help. I also got to participate in a blessing of a ward member recently that was very spiritual.
Tell Nani I wish her well. I hope everyone travels safe. Any news on Josh? I have been praying for him. Tell Cathy safe travels as well. I wish the best for everyone!
Thank You so much for the insight! I like President Uchtdorf's quotes. And from The Book of Mormon: " 18 And I would exhort you, my beloved brethren, that ye remember that every good gift cometh of Christ.
19 And I would exhort you, my beloved brethren, that ye remember that he is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and that all these gifts of which I have spoken, which are spiritual, never will be done away, even as long as the world shall stand, only according to the unbelief of the children of men.
20 Wherefore, there must be faith; and if there must be faith there must also be hope; and if there must be hope there must also be charity." (Moroni 10:18-20)
Have a Good Week!
