My week was wild!! i spent the whole week- Sunday to Saturday in Foz and then in Londrina to do divisions with the Sisters! I did a division with Sister Bott, which was awesome! It was such a crazy week and I'm exhausted but I'm happy and doing well! In our area here in Maringa we have divisions planned with Sister Alston and her companion! SISTER ALSTON IS GOING TO HAVE 9 MONTHS IN THE MISSION NEXT WEEK! I TRAINED HER WHEN I HAD 8 MONTHS AND SO I'M GETTING OLD! BUT IT WILL BE GOOD TO SPEND TIME WITH HER THIS WEEK! We have lots of baptisms marked this week! Such a blessing!
(Sister Tyson was able to visit Foz do Iguaçu this week. It is a world famous waterfall.)
It was so cool because at the waterfalls, I was speaking to people in English, Portuguese and Spanish from all parts of the world! It was soooo fun!!!! It was such a great reminder that Heavenly Father loves and really does create beautiful things!
I am sooo glad that you guys are well...I'm sorry I am writing less and less details every week it's just soooo busy and I don't have much time, but I'm doing well too and am trying to help the sisters and the people in my area to progress towards baptism.
The members are soooo wonderful here in my ward. They have a weekly box full of treats, shampoo, household products, and cards from the Relief Society sisters every single week for me and my companion and have asked us to make a list of things we want and need for them so that they can help us out every week! What a dream! One of the men in the ward is bringing us pizza tonight just because! Soooo kind and have such a desire to serve here with us and to find and teach their own friends about the gospel! Such a great area and companion to have to finish my mission! I am sooo blessed!
Today Presidente Pereira, in Zone Conference, talked about the importance of receiving revelation in our lives and in our areas to have more success. he talked about the Book of Mormon and about the importance of prayer, obedience, and hard work! I loved that he used Presidente Nelson's conference talk to teach us to be better disciples of Christ! I LOVE MY SAVIOR SO MUCH AND KNOW THAT HE IS GUIDING THIS WORK THROUGH REVELATION!
The area president of Brazil did a Facebook broadcast about the Book of Mormon inviting all of the members in Brazil to read the Book of Mormon daily in families and to send their testimonies written to the church headquarters in Sao Paulo to be documented for future generations here in Brazil!! So cool!! I love the Book of Mormon and have learned sooo much- I never want to stop reading it in Portuguese!
