That girl is my new companion- Sister Ferreira. She is from Minas Gerais, Brazil. She is 20 years old and has been a member for 2 years. She is the only member in her family and has 5 siblings. She is obedient and is a spicy girl. She is pretty quiet at first but loves to talk when you get her going--- the personalities of brazillians is a bit difficult to adjust to, but it will be okay--- I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT SHE IS OBEDIENT!!!
L. and his wife have a daughter who served a mission. They are not members. L. (our investigator) became super interested in the church when his daughter started preparing for her mission. He has already been going to church every week for 3 years! He has received many missionaries and said that he would be baptized tomorrow if he could stop smoking. He is amazing and reads the Book of Mormon every day!! HE IS SO GOLDEN! He keeps praying that his daughter will return to the church. I AM SO EXCITED TO HELP L. TO STOP SMOKING SO HE CAN BE BAPTIZED AND BECOME A MEMBER! I shared Ether 12;27 with him and his wife and I felt the spirit so strong when we met with them!!! TENDER MERCIES!We found L. (different investigator) while doing door to door contacts near our house. I knocked at his house and he came out and agreed to let us come back and teach him more about God's plan for our lives! We visited him this week and learned that his wife recently died and that his only son recently got married so he lives alone now. He believes in Christ but wants to know more about how knowing Christ can help his life. He agreed to come to church next week and understood the Plan of Salvation lesson really well! I am excited to keep meeting with him!
N. went to her sister's baptism- and she said that she saw her sister get baptized which makes her more nervous. I suggested that we could take her to the chapel during the week and let her stand in the font without water and we could explain what will happen on the day she is baptized- just so that she can feel more comfortable. We will see! Hopefully she prayed and received an answer from the Spirit!
