Sister Menezes

Week 29

Holla everyone!!

I am sorry its been a while , last week me and my companion had very little
time emailing so i wasn't able to send a email for you all! But all is well
and good here in PARAIBA!! (the best state in brazil.)

These last two weeks have been filled with lots of laughs, miracles and
sweat-from the hot sun of brazil. (but let me tell you one thing, my legs
are probably as white as snow #missionarylife)

So this past week me and my companion have been working very hard, we have
been trying to find lots of new people to teach each and every day.

Last week me and my companion found a man named Edivan, he lives alone and
is about 40 years old. Guys, the Lord truly has been preparing him for us
and we have been teaching him lots and are going to prepare him to be
baptized this Sunday so i hope all goes well!!

Everyday we truly can see the Lords hand.

This past week I have been teaching lots of people about our decisions and
how our decisions will determine our destiny. I know that the choices we
make today have a huge impact on our future. We need to always be striving
to be exactly obedient to the commandments of the Lord so we can receive
blessings today and later down the road.

Today I saw a talk by president Thomas S Monson that really stood out to
me. its called Stand up for what you believe, he says, " May we ever be
courageous and prepared to stand for what we believe, and if we must stand
alone in the process, may we do so courageously, strengthened by the
knowledge that in reality we are never alone when we stand with our Father
in Heaven."

I know we will receive eternal blessings if we choose the path of God in
our lives and stand up for what we believe... even if we stand alone.

I love you all and am thankful for your support, emails and prayers. Have a
wonderful week!

love, Sister Murphy
