This was such a week to remember. We truely saw the tender mercies of the Lord, and his hand blessing our lives and the lives of our investigators.
There was a huge complication with the Catório (civil in english? não sei) but Adreana and João were married in the church! Because the paper work woun´t be ready for about 20 more days, there weren´t able to get baptized with their daughters. But the wedding was so special, and there were so many investigators that attended1 Two of Adrianas sisters told us that they too wanted to go to church and get married!
Arianas mother is so evangelic (i´m talking long stangily hair to her knees), but she went to the wedding, baptism, and church to see the confirmation! she said that she felt so much peace in the church, in comparision to her church that "puts her to sleep" haaha
Highlight was their daughters Maria luiza and Emily were able to be baptized! What a special day. they were glowing. The young women of our branch each bore their testimonies at the baptis mand say a hymn. What a spiritual baptism!
Here are some things that stood out to me this week:
-repentance is to have faith in christ and DEPEND on him. This week we taught a girl named amanda, who sufferes from depression. It was such a powerful lesson teaching her about how through christ she could be healed. we gave he a vision of her her life could be after the repentance process. How she could be completely pure, happy and clean. We made it clear that Heavenly Father will never abandon her, and how he hopes that she comes unto him to be forgiven.
-A person who seeks to do things the easy way, becomes weak.
Look for ways to grow! challenge yourself! you are stronger than you think you are.
I have learned so much about being positive! to recognize my blessings, and understand how increadible blessed i am! Rmember that each day is a great day if you make it one. Be happy, life is to be lived and enjoyed! not "to be supported".
I love my savior! I love the atonement and the privilage that we have to come unto christ and be healed and made clean! everyone needs to know this joy and hope!
