Week 93 - O milagre do Batismo

Wow gente this week was incredible. I don’t even know where to start. 

We had so many miracles happen this week and honestly, I feel so humbled to be a part of this great work. The Lord has continually blessed our area over and over and well, I just honestly don’t want to leave here ever!

Week 92 - Plano de Salvação

This week had a ton of miracles. And sadly I don’t have time to count them all!

I feel like this week was pretty centered on the plan of salvation. We taught two different families about the plan of happiness and wow they just loved it so much. One couple we taught asked about life after death. We explained lots - from the spirit world to the Celestial kingdom. And the wife says, "wow, I have gone to so many different churches and they have never ever clarified exactly what will happen in the next life. I feel so at peace now."

Week 91 - Felicidade

Hello everyone,

I am missing my hair. But taking showers this week has been very efficient.

Yesterday was a holiday so we get to email today. Yesterday we went to Alto da Sé in Olinda with the assistants and it was the bomb.

This week we had ward conference. So with that the ward did a family home evening night and a movie night during the week. During the movie night, they played "Juntos para Sempre." This was a very 80s church film with some rocking clothing and haircuts. The movie was perfect for our investigators who went. One family that went is literally amazing. I love them so much. They are an eternal family in perspective. They loved the movie and are so excited to learn about the Plan of Salvation.

Week 90 - Batismo de Marluce e a Vida Careca

Hello all,

This week was pretty interesting. First of all, last p-day, we decided that my hair was definitely not acceptable and well I shaved it all off. haha yeah seriously. And well let’s just say, I miss my hair. a lot. But it is funny because we had mission council and all the missionaries were like "what the heck Elder Waters, what did you do?" And all the members asked if we were taken by the police or if I have lice. And everyone asks me about my scar.  That is often times funny to explain because most of the people here have never seen snow and don’t really know how sledding works.

Week 89 - A week of Adventures

Well this week has been great and strange and lots of things have happened actually.

Firstly, General Conference was awesome. When Elder Eyring got up there in the first session, I felt so good. I thought about how I have gained even more testimony and conversion since last conference. I think every missionary in the world was just like rooting on Elder Neil Anderson and Elder Oaks. Their talks were incredible and I know that missionary work is seriously only going to move forward if the missionaries and members work together.  I really hope that the members understood their message. We are all missionaries at whatever age with whatever amount of time we have in the Church. Preaching the gospel is so important.  Elder Oaks made it so easy giving lots of ideas of how to get started.
