Last week I had to say goodbye to Elder Silva but my new companion is Elder Martinez and I'm excited to see what we can do this transfer. Elder Martinez has only been out 6 months but he's already a really good teacher so I can't want to see what I can learn from him. He doesn't speak a lot of English so sometimes it's a little difficult to communicate but it makes me use Portuguese. Hopefully my Portuguese improves a lot this transfer because I'm gonna have to use it a lot.
This past week was mostly introducing Elder Martinez to the members i already know and trying to find where more members live. This transfer we're going to focus a lot on less-active members (people that are already baptized but don't go to church) so I spent a lot of time this week looking for scriptures to help them. One scripture that came to mind as I was studying was 3 Nephi 13:33. This part of the Book of Mormon is where Jesus Christ comes and visits the people of America and he teaches: "31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?32 For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you." I know that the Book of Mormon truly testifies of Jesus Christ and that each and every one of us can grow closer to Him as we read it.
Hope you all have a good week!
