So happy for bride and groom, CONGRATS Seth and Megan!!
And happy Easter, all! My second easter on the mission, and it is wonderful.
-Staring to get colder here, and what a blessing that is.
-Sister Sá and I were showered with tonssssss of chocolate from the members here. 2 giant chocolate eggs with truffles inside, another huge egg filled with brigadeiro, box of chocolates, homemade cookies (more like crackers), etc.
-Our easter lunch was churrasco (of course), rice, lasagna, ipem, and a buffet of salad! And for dessert chocolate cheese cake (dreamy), and sagu.
What a special week this was, remembering the sacred ressurection of Christ! There as such a sweet spirit Sunday, one that touches our hearts in such a way that there is no way to deny it. One of my recent converts here, Adriana (member for a bit over a month) gave the lesson in Relif Society! She planned everything so well, and it was a beautful lesson about Christ. I am so proud of her and her progression. Seeing the fruits of our labor, and it feels so good!
I can´t begin to describe how greatful I am to have the restored gospel in my life! Above all, it brings so much joy to know that Jesus Christ loves us so much, that we are living in the days when his church is restored upon the earth. We have these rich blessings that were lossed for almost 2,000 years: Baptism, recieving the gift of the holy ghost, sealing of eternal families: the priestood!
I am coming to know and feel more and more the power of the book of mormon. This week we had an experience with Bete and Douglas. Douglas has been hearing our messages, but we felt as though he wasn´t opening his heart to accepting. We finally turned to the greatest resource of conversion: the book of mormon. We read with him Ether 12:27<x-apple-data-detectors://1>. After reading, he looked us into the eyes and said. "I want to read this book". There was such a strong spirit in the room, testifiying that it truly is the word of God.
Greatful for the knowlege that we have that Christ lives! And that one day we too will be resurected beings.
I know that Christ suffered for each of us. He knows what it is like to be alone, compeltely alone. And doesn´t want anyone to suffer as he did. Come unto Christ, and he will give you the strength to endure!
