Week 75 - Conferências e São João e Templo

Hello everyone.

This week we had a zone conference and a Branch Conference.  In our zone conference we learned about how to do better invites. We learned that lots of times investigators don’t progress because of our bad invites. Inviting someone to act is so key and crucial in every part of the gospel. President Bigelow explained that many times we have a huge spiritual experience (during a talk, or general conference, or devotional, etc.) and afterwards nothing changes or happens in our life because we weren´t invited to change.

Week 74 - Batismo de Marileide e Jonas

Hello everyone!

This week went great because we had two baptisms. They were of Marileide and Jonas (Mom and son).  They used to be members of another religion, but after learning the true doctrine of the Restoration, they couldn't deny the truth! We were so happy that they were both baptized on the same day.

Week 73 - Rápido

Ten Kilogram Watermelon!

Hello everyone!

This week went by so quickly. The time just gets faster and faster. First of all, shout out to one my best friends Josh Davis for turning 20 this past week! Feels like yesterday we were passing sacrament together.

Week 72 - Junho

We have been working so hard that my companion needs to put his feet in a bucket of ice water while we study! haha

Hello everyone!

This has been another great week in Brazil!

I thought I would keep this email to more of what I have been learning recently. These past few weeks I have been studying the Plan of Salvation a ton. And I can truly say that it is a Plan of Happiness. I have learned so much about our purpose here and why we face such trials and problems in life.  I have learned how to have an eternal perspective on things - especially when we are faced with difficulties.
