With only 1 hour in total to write all of my fam, friends, president, and get all my numbers of the week in the system, email time is always so so stressful. But greatful for the little time that I have to talk with all of you! Thank you for always writiing me and for your sweet letters. You all have a special place in my heart, and I pray for you all always! Happy birthday this week to my dear grandma rose, lauren, naomi, isaac, and justin! And congrats stephan for getting called as a bishop!!
Highlights of this week: My companion opened her mission call! She will be going to London, England!! March 15,2017<x-apple-data-detectors://0>. She is pumped and I am already teaching her the British accent.
The next morning we took 5 investigators and lots of recent converts from our branch to the temple in Porto Alegre! Such a spiritual experience and they all were in AWE
Jefferson and his family are really progressing! He told us that he has always wanted to be baptized in the mormon church. INCREADIBLE! His mother is dying of cancer and this is a really tender part of his life. He and his wife will get married and baptized in no time!
Thank you so much family for the packages! And thank you Charlie Lysenko for your sweet letter! It was definantly better than presents on X-mas morning.
I can´t even begin to tell you all how much the mission has opened my eyes. I have an understanding of the importance of our life here on the earth. I have come to understand that every person is a special child to our heavenly father. He trust in us to help his children return to him.
I invite each of you to think about how to the gopel has influenced/changed your life. Now think about how it really can change the life of one of your friend. Share the gospel! Be corageous and valient! The lord depends on you! Time is short, so give it your all! I feel so blessed and I know that the Lord is aware of me and my trails. I am trying each day to come closer to him through my words, thoughts, and actions. He is AWARE of everything.
