This week went by super quick! We had changes this last week so on Wendsday we were in a trio with Hermana Nacimento! It was super great because she is brazilian and helped us a lot with our Portuguese :)
Right now we are teaching a part member family that is so sweet. Jessica and Johnathan with thier 3 kids! They aren't married but Jessica wants to get baptized and her 10 yr old son also wants to get baptized! We had a good heart to heart with them and they told us that they don't want to get married because they need to remodel their house (because its only brick walls and tin roof) and be more stable as far as finances go. We promised them that if they were obedient the Lord would provide away, that they don't need to be worried or wait! This week we were talking with some other members about this hesitation that they had, and how to help them. A few days later in a ward correlation we got some amazing news! There is a couple in our branch who is also recently married and is remodling their house and offered to provide all the materials and hands to remodel the house of Jessica and Johnathan!! We were soooo excited! Yesterday we had charla with them and told them the news! They were beyond words excited! It was incredible how the Lord really does provide a way. How we meet this family right in time, right when they needed this help, not earlier or later, and how this couple in our branch also is doing the same thing right now!
I'm a firm believer that there are not coincidences. No Hay Casualidad! It's such a testimony to me that Heavenly Father knows our situations and knows who can help, who has the talents to serve! I have learned so much about just giving our all to the Lord each day, starting with a prayer and letting the Lord know what is in our heart and then getting to our feet ready to give all the talents that we have. The Lord has so many people that need our talents and if we seek him in prayer we will be guided to know how to help!
I hope that you all have a great week!! Love you all!!
