I hope you are all doing great. I had a great week- the highlight was getting to skype my wonderful family yesterday for mothers day!
Last week we found lots of new people to teach. It is so crazy how the Lord works and puts people in our path.
We found 2 boys, their names are Jonatis and Caio, they came to church yesterday and it was great! They loved it. We are going to continue teaching them this week and hopefully all will work out!!
Yesterday Melqi( that was baptized 3 weeks ago) passed the sacrament! Yesterday Gentil also received the priesthood! It was so great, its so amazing to see how the Gospel of Jesus Christ changes lives.
Oh how i love being a missionary and all the things that i have learned being out here in brasil.
This morning i was reading the Liahonna from April 2017 and there was a part that i loved that i wanted to share with you all. Its called " Joy is key to our spiritual survival."
It says-" When the focus of our lives is on Gods plan of salvation, and Jesus Christ and His gospel, we can feel joy regardless of what is happening-or not happening-in our lives.. His joy is constant, assuring that our afflictions shall be but a small moment, and be consecrated to our gain."
It continues to talk about how we can only find true joy through the Christ. ' If we look to the world and follow the formulas for happiness, we will never know joy... Joy is a gift for the faithful."
I have a testimony that we can only experience true joy when we put Christ and His teachings at the center.
Oh how i love this gospel!!
Thank you all for your love and prayers. Life is good!
