Elder Moraes

Conference Weekend

Hello All :)
I hope you all enjoyed conference! It's a small world in the Mormon community, seeing Nathan Johnson in the choir and hearing about the Russells. Conference here was watched in the stake center which is way on the other side of the city and so we didn't have any investigators there but it's ok. This week was the first full work week week with Elder Moraes, he's awesome! He learns super fast and is really willing to accept advice. We worked on just growing our teaching pool and we found some really cool people and had some really cool lessons! Each Friday there is a small farmer's market that is real close to our house so we take advantage of it and contact loads of people. :) This week while making contacts there we were stopped by a guy who told us he felt like he needed to talk to us and then he asked us for a bible. I told him that I only had my personal bible but I had something better. Then we gave him a Book of Mormon and explained it briefly in the street to him. I'm stoked to teach him this week and see what he's all about! Conference was great because now I understand Portuguese haha. The last conference here I only got bits and pieces. One of my favorites was Elder Rasband. The Promise he made was awesome! If we live the Gospel and read and strengthen our testimonies each day, they will be protected. This Promise is from an apostle of the Lord! I hope you all recieved answers or encouragment from conference and that you share what you learned and felt with others. :) Have a great week and don't forget to write in your journal. haha!

Elder Craig!
