Esse não é a pessoa que estávamos ensinando!

Oiiii queridos amigos e querida família!! Então esta semana foi cheia de mudanças, Maxwell e milagres!

Primeiramente! as mudanças! Então, na quarta feira tive uma divisão com Sister Bradshaw. Ela é de Florida e essa é primeira transferência dela! Grande mudança para mim, para ter uma companheira com menos tempo que eu. Eu tive muito medo sobre essa divisão, me senti muito insuficiente. Mas naquela dia recebi uma bênção de Presidente Colleoni ( por causa de meu medo ). E de verdade essa bênção me ajudou muito! Divisão foi ótima!!! Geralmente (mais recentemente) tenho muito medo de falar com as pessoas e convidar-los para ser batizado. Mas na divisão com Sister Bradshaw, conseguimos alguns bons contatos e tivemos algumas lições boas. E com essas lições conseguimos convidar 4 pessoas para ser batizado!!! Todo mundo aceitou batismo por dia 17 de Dezembro. Infelizmente só uma pessoa foi por igreja esta semana, e agora precisamos remarcar as outros batismos por dia 24! Mas vai dar tudo certo!

Agora, Maxwell. Também a gente estava ensinando Maxwell, a rapaz com 14 anos. Ele é eleito com força!!! Maxwell, encontraremos 2 semanas atrás fechando padrão Domingo a noite. Ele foi a última pessoa que falarmos. Convidarmos por igreja, e marcarmos uma dia de voltar e ensinar. Bem curta, ele cumpriu todos os compromissos, foi para seminário sozinho e realmente é um eleito! Sábado a gente foi à casa dele e chagarmos lá e percebemos que ele tinha pintado o cabelo loiro!! LOIRO!!!! Ave maria esse menino é doido! Cara Sister N. Souza quase matou-lo! Esse não é o mesmo pessoa que estávamos ensinando!

Mas o MILAGRE, ontem tivemos batismo dele! Cara foi ótimo!!! Um recém converso batizou Maxwell e ele esqueceu de tapar o nariz antes de emergê-lo na água. E Maxwell quase caiu! kkk foi engraçada demais! Estou muito feliz por ele e decisão dele para ser batizada! Ele ama igreja e já falou para nos que ele quer ser um missionário também! Cara gente, ele é bom demais! Muito top! E um outro milagre tivemos, que um outro pesquisador foi por igreja ontem também! Não achávamos que ele vai mas uma surpresa para nos, ele foi! Espero que ele vai ser batizado esta semana ou ao próxima! Borá ver né?

Cara a semana foi ótima! E eu sei que esta é igreja de Cristo, que Ele é a cabeça dela! Que Ele é nosso Salvador e é sempre está conosco! Estou muito feliz para ser uma instrumento na mãos dele neste trabalho! "É o trabalho de Deus. Eu sou como um ... lápis em sua mão. ... Ele faz o pensamento. Ele faz a escrita. O lápis não tem nada a ver com isso. O lápis só deve ser usado."

Amo muito vocês!!!! Boa semana por todos!!!

Com amor e carinho,
Sister Moss

Oiiii dear friends and dear family !! So this week was full of changes, Maxwell and miracles!

First! the changes! So on Wednesday I had a split with Sister Bradshaw. She's from Florida and this is her first transfer! Big change for me, to have a mate with less time than me. I was very scared about this division, I felt very inadequate. But that day I received a blessing from President Colleoni (because of my fear). And this blessing really helped me a lot! Division was great !!! Generally (more recently) I am too afraid to talk to people and invite them to be baptized. But in the division with Sister Bradshaw, we got some good contacts and we had some good lessons. And with these lessons we were able to invite 4 people to be baptized !!! Everyone accepted baptism on December 17th. Unfortunately only one person went to church this week, and now we need to reschedule the other baptisms by the 24th! But it will be all right!

Now, Maxwell. We were also teaching Maxwell, the boy at the age of fourteen. He is elected with force !!! Maxwell, we'll find you 2 weeks ago closing standard Sunday night. He was the last person we talked to. Invite them to church, and mark a day of coming back and teaching. Very short, he fulfilled all the commitments, went to seminary alone and really is an elected! Saturday we went to his house and we got there and realized that he had painted his blond hair !! BLOND!!!! Hail Mary, this boy is crazy! Dear Sister N. Souza almost killed him! This is not the same person we were teaching!

But the MIRACLE, we had his baptism yesterday! Dude it was great !!! A new convert named Maxwell and he forgot to cover his nose before he emerged into the water. And Maxwell almost fell! lol it was too funny! I am very happy for him and his decision to be baptized! He loves church and has already told us that he wants to be a missionary too! Dear folks, he's too good! Very cool! And another miracle we had, that another researcher went by church yesterday too! We did not think he would but a surprise for us, he was! I hope he will be baptized this week or next! See you, right?

Dude the week was great! And I know that this is Christ's church, that He is the head of it! That He is our Savior and is always with us! I am very happy to be an instrument in his hands on this job! "It's God's work.I'm like a ... pencil in his hand .... He does the thinking.He does the writing.The pencil has nothing to do with it.The pencil should only be used.

Love you so much!!!! Good week for everyone !!!

With love and affection,

Sister Moss

Sister Moss's letter to Mom...

oiiii mamãe!!!!

caramba!!! HUMP DAY ALREADY???? No I dont believe it, not a single bit!!! Oh man, this is crazy to say and to think that I have 9 months here in Brazil and only 8 months until I get to hug you and never let go again!!! Super excited to see you here in 2 weeks! That should get me through until Mothers day, and than until you're here in Brazil with me!!!! Man oh man I dont believe this!!! 

Maiya is 3????? Man I forgot her birthday!!!! que freaking!!! give her loves for me please!! and i saw the video, man she is too perfect!!!! 

Dont think my packages have arrived yet, but I dont know. Generally they dont contact us if we have something. its kind of just a surprise when we show up at the mission office haha!

So we do lots of small meals for dinner. Or sometimes we dont eat dinner. Generally throughout the day recent converts give us food, they love to feed us. So when we get home we aren't super hungry haha. Dont worry I'm eating tons!! No no one comes monthly to see our house. usually if something is wrong we tell Sister Colleoni and she takes care of it within the week. Shes amazing!! There's not a whole lot of american food here in the stores. Basically just spaghetti or chicken haha.

--My health is good, I went back to the doctor for my ear and he explained that I need surgery, but its not urgent. He said dont worry too much about it. Its because the bone for my ear is supposed to have spots to allow air in and out but its just bone. Donts have the space or spots for air to enter. so it needs to be repaired. But its not urgent dont need surgery right now! It can wait! -- trading clothes is super normal. I've left some of my clothes that are super big in other houses so other sisters can use them or give them to recent converts. I think I have one dress that I bought and all the others I traded with sisters. 

This week was super good!! We had a BAPTISM!!! Cara, it was perfect!! He is such a great kid and will do so many great things in the church. He already says he wants to go on a mission!! Man super happy for him!! Also, the fears and troubles I was having I feel like have gone away. We had splits this week and I got put with Sister Bradshaw, shes from Florida and this is her first transfer. I really didnt have a choice but to grow up and get over my fears this day working with her. Because I speak more portuguese than she does and things like that so it was basically a day to grow up and get over the little things! The day with Sister Bradshaw went super well! we made some good contacts, good lessons and in the end of it all we invited 4 people to be baptized and everyone accepted!!!! Super super excited!! hopefully they continue to progress and have the desire to be baptized into the only true church on earth and enter into the straight and narrow path home! Super excited to see how this week turns out, see if we will have another baptism this week!!! 

I promise you mommy, I love this work and enjoy it more and more everyday!!!

Love you so so much!!!

A Mission is not Easy, but It's Totally Worth It!

Hey y'all!! so this week I wanted to write só in english. I will do my best but as vezes I throw some portugues in there, as you can tell already! Just bear with me okay?

But really quick I want to update you all on the work here!

So first off, we're working a lot more with the youth it seems like. We have the most amazing investigator "M". He is 14 years old and is literally the best investigator I've ever seen! He does everything we ask him to do in order to progress and be ready for his baptism this week! First off, we met him 2 weeks ago on Sunday night when we were rushing to meet the goals of the week. He was one of the last people we talked to before returning home. Tuesday we went and taught him the first lesson (the Restoration). and when we finished explaining that he needs to be baptized by someone with the right authority (priesthood) he basically asked if he could be baptized this week (yesterday). we explained that there was a process to these things and marked his baptism for this week! Guys it gets better!! We went back and invited him to seminary one day, just to see how things are and get him involved with some of the youth. He loved it and the 2 days following he went all by himself to seminary! Cara, we both almost cried! He's so great!! Super excited for him to be baptized this week, and see him progress in the church!

Another investigator we're working with and have marked for baptism this week is "R". Another person we met Sunday night trying to finish things for the week. He's great and we have already marked his baptism but its really hard to find him in home. But we'll follow up with him this week and hopefully everything works out to have the baptism this week!! 

We are also working with 2 families. One who is having a hard time, struggling alot in their "marriage" they live together but arent married yet. They're great and really curious about the church but they dont want to get married and dont want to separate. Its really hard! and the other family lost their son a few years ago and struggle a lot with the idea that they think he is suffering still. We taught them the plan of salvation and hopefully will be able to help them understand that he isnt suffering and that they can one day have him sealed to them for eternity! 

The work here is getting much better! But its still super super hard! Lately, its been just my companion doing the work and I've been struggling quite a lot. I know for a fact that a mission was never meant to be easy, but i am starting to see more and more everyday that its worth every tear, every struggle, every problem. 

Love you guys so much!! 

com amor,
Sister Moss

Mission Tour ft. Elder e Sister Costa!

Oí FamBam e amigos queridos!!

Beleza, então esta semana foi muito louco mas cara foi bom demais!! Para começar, temos a Mission Tour com Elder Joaquin Costa e esposa dele! Cara eles são muito legais!! Uma experiência muito especial! Primeiramente, temos (sisters normais) uma aula com Sister Costa e Sister Colleoni! Aos outros missionários foram separados também. Elderes com Presidente Colleoni e SLT's com LZ's com Elder Costa. Aprendi muito com Sister Costa e Sister Colleoni, falarmos sobre nossas fraquezas e como eles nos ajuda ser mais aproxima do Senhor. Eu gosto muito algo que Sister Costa falou, que nossas fraquezas são bom sinais de aproximando de Cristo. Ela compartilhou Eter 12:27 que é muito conhecido mas cara eu aprendo algo novo cada vez desta escritura! Dá uma leia, e realmente pensa sobre como essa escritura pode te ajudar aprender de suas fraquezas! Depois, juntarmos de novo e aprendermos muito sobre nosso propósito e como podemos ajudar e buscar nossos eleitos! Cara essa dia foi da hora! Nunca vou esquecer!! 

O próximo dia Sister N. Souza tive um outra conferência com Presidente Colleoni e Elder Costa, então durante este tempo tive um oportunidade de ver pessoas no interior e trabalhar um pouco com Sister Morais, cara ela é bom demais!! 

Esta transferência vejo que tenho muito mais dificuldades falando com as pessoas. E realmente fazendo o trabalho que preciso de fazer! De verdade, eu acho que perdi foco estas últimas semanas. Sinto muito mau, porque sei que não estou fazendo meu parte do trabalho... sou focando muito esta semana, tentando mais de não ter medo e para fazer as coisas que chamei aqui de fazer! Sinto muito mau com meu esforços e de verdade mi mesmo, e ontem estava lendo em Alma 38 e li versículo 8, bem no fim deste versículo me ajudou muito. E por causa disso, sei que Deus sempre respondes nossa orações! Sempre sempre sempre! Eu sei que Ele me ama, que sou uma filha Dele! Sei que fui chamado para fazer esta obra, a obra do Senhor, e com ajuda Dele eu posso fazer qualquer coisa! Eu sei que uma missão não é facíl, mas sei que minha missão vai mudar minha vida e já mudou minha vida bastante! Realmente vale pena!! Este é obra do meu Salvador, e juntos vamos ajudar nossas irmãos aceitam o evangelho!! 

Amo vocês tanto!!!

Com amor,
Sister Moss

Hi FamBam and dear friends !!
 
Beauty, so this week was crazy but expensive was good too !! To begin, we have the Mission Tour with Elder Joaquin Costa and his wife! Dude they are cool !! A very special experience! First, we have (normal sisters) a lesson with Sister Costa and Sister Colleoni! The other missionaries were also separated. Elderes with President Colleoni and SLT's with LZ's with Elder Costa. I learned a lot from Sister Costa and Sister Colleoni, talking about our weaknesses and how they help us to be closer to the Lord. I really like something Sister Costa has said, that our weaknesses are good signs of approaching Christ. She shared Ether 12:27 which is very well known but dearly I learn something new every time from this scripture! Give a read, and really think about how this scripture can help you learn from your weaknesses! Then join again and learn a lot about our purpose and how we can help and seek our elect! Dude, that day was awesome! I will never forget!!
 
The next day Sister N. Souza had another conference with President Colleoni and Elder Costa, so during this time I had an opportunity to see people inside and work a little with Sister Morais, man she is too good !!
 
This transference shows that I have much more difficulty talking to people. And actually doing the work I need to do! Really, I think I've lost focus these last few weeks. I feel really bad because I know I'm not doing my part of the job ... I'm focusing a lot this week, trying harder not to be afraid and to do the things I called here to do! I feel very bad with my efforts and really myself, and yesterday I was reading Alma 38 and I read verse 8, right at the end of this verse helped me a lot. And because of that, I know that God always answers our prayers! Always always always! I know that He loves me, that I am His daughter! I know that I have been called to do this work, the work of the Lord, and with His help I can do anything! I know that a mission is not easy, but I know that my mission is going to change my life and it has already changed my life enough! Really worth it !! This is the work of my Savior, and together we will help our brothers and sisters accept the gospel !!
 
I love you so much !!!
 
With love,
Sister Moss

Choral, ou Não

Hello my people!!! So this week had its ups and downs, but over all I'd consider this week amazing!! To start off, I went to the doctors again and need to go back again to see another specialist. Vai dar certo! I hit 8 months in my mission and to celebrate we went out for açai with the Elders. Haha it was super funny!!

The following day we had our first district meeting with the new district. Theres 4 sisters and 6 Elders in my district, and seriously this is the funnest (I know this isn't a word) district so far! After the district meeting 6 of us received money for lunch so we decided to go to lunch together. haha its so fun getting to hang out with the other missionaries! After lunch we wanted soda, but it was a huge rip off at the resturant so we went to the store and bought a thing of coke to share amongst the 6 of us. Went to find somewhere to sit and ended up in front of our apartment complex. haha it was super fun!! Then we all left and got to work (dont worry we are still working)! Later that night we had been invited to sing with a small group of missionaries for a fireside for the youth. Well long story short, we took the wrong bus twice and missed our chance to sing (sorry mom!) seriously it was so crazy! We were super sad that we missed our chance to sing but we got to see some people that we havent seen in a while, so that was cool! 

Everyday this week we were working to visit our investigator who is ready for baptism and finally on friday we caught her at home! Wooo! we taught her the last lesson that she needed and invited her to be baptized again. She accepted!!! Come Sunday, and her mom said no. So now we will have to work a bit more with her mom. But she is an amazing kid and I know she is ready for this next step! 

On saturday we (my companion, Elder Leite and Elder M. Alves) decided to climb the dunes behind our apartments! guys it was sooooo cool!!!! so pretty and so fun!!! After the dunes we went back home and got ready for the day. Worked until 4 and then went to Nova Parnamirim (my last area) because Elizete, one of the investigators I was teaching with sister soares was getting baptized!! Guys I dont think I've been to a baptism where I have felt the spirit as strongly as I did for Elizete! I know without a doubt that she was ready and prepared for this day for years!!! 

This week was super super good, regardless of its downs! I know that this is the gospel of Jesus Christ, that he is at the head of this church! I know that my calling as a representative of Jesus Christ is to find the 1, to leave the 99 to find the one who needs to come home! That as his servant he is always on my side and will never leave me! I am so happy to be a servant of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! 

Love you all!!
Sister Moss


Português 

Olá, minha gente !!! Então, esta semana teve seus dificuldades e bênçãos, consideraria esta semana incrível! Para começar, fui aos médicos novamente e preciso voltar para ver outro especialista. Vai funcionar! Acabei 8 meses na minha missão e comemoramos que saímos para Açaí com os Anciãos. Haha foi super engraçado !!

No dia seguinte, tivemos a nossa primeira reunião distrital com o novo distrito. Existem 4 irmãs e 6 idosos no meu distrito, e, sério, esta é a zona mais divertida (eu sei disso não é uma palavra) até agora! Após a reunião do distrito 6, recebemos dinheiro para o almoço, então decidimos ir almoçar juntos. haha é tão divertido sair com os outros missionários! Após o almoço, queríamos refrigerante, mas era um grande roubo no restaurante, então fomos à loja e compramos algo de coca para compartilhar entre nós 6. Acessou encontrar um lugar para se sentar e acabou em frente ao nosso complexo de apartamentos. haha foi super divertido !! Então todos nós partimos e conseguimos trabalhar (não se preocupe, ainda estamos funcionando)! Mais tarde, naquela noite, fomos convidados a cantar com um pequeno grupo de missionários por uma fogueira para a juventude. Uma longa história bem curta, pegamos o ônibus errado duas vezes e perdemos a chance de cantar (desculpe, mãe!) Sério, era tão louco! Estávamos super tristes que perdemos nossa chance de cantar, mas temos que ver algumas pessoas que não vimos há algum tempo, então foi legal!

Todos os dias esta semana estávamos trabalhando para visitar nosso investigador que está pronto para o batismo e, finalmente, na sexta-feira, a gente a pegou em casa! Wooo! nós ensinamos a ela a última lição que ela precisava e a convidou para ser batizada novamente. Ela aceitou!!! Venha o domingo, e sua mãe disse que não. Então, agora teremos que trabalhar um pouco mais com a mãe dela. Mas ela é uma criança incrível e eu sei que ela está pronta para este próximo passo!

No sábado, nós (meu companheiro Elder Leite e Elder M. Alves) decidiram escalar as dunas atrás de nossos apartamentos! caras, foi tão legal !!!! tão bonito e tão divertido! Depois das dunas, voltamos para casa e nos preparamos para o dia. Trabalhou até 4 e depois foi para Nova Parnamirim (minha última área) porque Elizete, um dos pesquisadores que eu estava ensinando com a irmã Soares estava sendo batizado !! Caras, eu não acho que estive em um batismo onde senti o espírito tão forte como fiz para Elizete! Eu sei sem dúvida que ela estava pronta e preparada para este dia há anos !!!

Esta semana foi super super boa, independentemente das suas baixas! Eu sei que este é o evangelho de Jesus Cristo, que ele está na cabeça desta igreja! Eu sei que meu chamado é um representante de Jesus Cristo é encontrar o 1, deixar o 99 para encontrar aquele que precisa voltar para casa! Esse é o criado dele, ele está sempre do meu lado e ele nunca vai me deixar! Estou tão feliz por ser um servo de nosso Senhor e Salvador Jesus Cristo!

Amo todos vocês !!
Sister Moss

Algo que Nunca Senti Na Minha Vida

Boa tarde gente!!! Então esta semana foi maravilhosa!!! Primeiramente, vemos muitos pequenos milagres esta semana e no mesmo tempo muitos dificuldades e distrações.

Primeiro os distrações e dificuldades. Eu não acho que eu fui ao hospital mais na minha vida do que eu fiz esta semana. Nos fomos por o hospital ou físico terapia cada dia esta semana. Geralmente o hospital é para mim, mas na sexta feira nos fomos por um outro hospital por Sister Soares. Ela estava tremendo, super fraca, e mal podia andar direto. No início foi engraçada mas depois a gente foi para casa de uma família que nos estamos ensinando e ela perdeu sentimentos na mãos dela! Nós rapidamente chamamos um táxi e 20 minutos depois estavam no hospital. Aparentemente, ela precisa de mais comida e água, kkk só isso! Mas cada dia, a gente foi por o hospital, e perdeu muito tempo da manhãs para trabalhar e estudar. 

Mas nos tivemos muitos milagres também!! Então primeiro com milagres! Encontramos tantas pessoas maravilhosas para ensinar e ajudar! Eu quero compartilhar sobre uma mulher que estamos ensinando a Elizete. Gente, seriamente ela é perfeito, eleito! Ela se mudou para a nossa área e, infelizmente, literalmente tem nada. Estamos trabalhando nisso! Mas ela conheceu um dos nossos recentes conversos seu primeiro dia aqui. Este é o primeiro milagre! Depois que eles se conheceram, encontramos o recente converso que nos deu endereço dela e fomos imediatamente lá! Ela estava perguntando-lhe muitas perguntas sobre a igreja, então nossa primeira lição com ela basicamente, falamos sobre tudo! Profetas, batismo, templos, dízimo, bispo, batismos para os mortos, literalmente tudo! Milagre #2! Descobrimos que o recente converso tá ajudando com alimentos para ela e coisas assim! Milagre #3! O último milagre é o meu favorito! Ela foi à igreja conosco ontem e ela adorou demais !! Ela conheceu o bispo e disse que, quando apertou a mão, sentiu algo que nunca antes sentia na vida dela. Algo tão incrível e poderoso! 

Eu sei que o que ela sentia foi o Espírito testificando para ela que realmente, bispo é um portador do sacerdócio e chamou por Deus! Eu sei que ela sabe que essa é a igreja de Cristo e é verdadeira! Eu sou muito animada para continuar ensinando ela, e ajudar ela aceitar este plano em vida dela! Ela foi e ainda é procurando essa igreja! 

Muitos milagres esta semana! MARAVILHOSA!!! amo vocês com todo meu coração!!

Sister Moss 

Here's the Google Translate version of Sister Moss's letter...
Good afternoon guys!!! So this week was wonderful !!! First, we see many small miracles this week and at the same time many hardships and distractions.
Distractions and difficulties first. I do not think I went to the hospital more in my life than I did this week. We went through the hospital or physical therapy every day this week. Usually the hospital is for me, but on Friday we went to another hospital for Sister Soares. She was shaking, super weak, and could barely walk straight. At first it was funny but then we went home to a family that we are teaching and she lost feelings in her hands! We quickly called a taxi and 20 minutes later were in the hospital. Apparently, she needs more food and water, lol! But every day, we went to the hospital, and lost a lot of time in the mornings to work and study.
But we had many miracles too !! Then first with miracles! We found so many wonderful people to teach and help! I want to share about a woman we are teaching to Elizete. Folks, seriously she's perfect, elected! She moved to our area and, sadly, literally has nothing. We're working on it! But she met one of our recent converts her first day here. This is the first miracle! After they met, we met the recent convert who gave us her address and we were immediately there! She was asking him many questions about the church, so our first lesson with her basically, we talked about everything! Prophets, baptism, temples, tithes, bishops, baptisms for the dead, literally everything! Miracle # 2! We found out that the recent convert is helping with food for her and stuff like that! Miracle # 3! The last miracle is my favorite! She went to church with us yesterday and she loved it !! She met the bishop and said that when she shook hands, she felt something she had never felt in her life before. Something so incredible and powerful!
I know what she felt was the Spirit testifying to her that really, bishop is a priesthood holder and called for God! I know she knows this is the church of Christ and it's true! I'm very excited to continue teaching her, and help her accept this plan in her life! She was and still is looking for this church! 
Many miracles this week! WONDERFUL!!! I love you with all my heart !!
Sister Moss
 Extra News...

Yes I started PT. my MRI showed that I have a little tear on my meniscus. I've had 3 sessions of PT and have just done shock stuff so far. also I will being going to the doctor a bit more now. I've had what i thought was just an ear infection for a while. it prevented me from hearing for almost 4 months so we went to the doctor again today to check it out. she said its a miracle that i dont have pain to my ear and stuff. apparently its more than just a normal ear infection. They asked me to ask you if any one in our family other than me has ear problems. so do we have someone else or am I just super special? I will be having lots of tests done in the next few weeks to find out just exactly what happened. I will be buying some meds today so if you see a big withdraw or purchase on the credit card its just medicine. I'll keep you updated on this medical stuff.

Reunião de Zona e Gincana Musical!

Beleza, então esta semana eu vou escrever muito mais! Primeiramente, nos tivemos reunião de zona! Eu acho que foi quase um ano sem reunião de zona então essa foi muito legal pra mim! Somente treinamentos e coisas assim, mas foi da hora! Aprendi muito lá! Eu acho que meu favorito treinamento foi de Sister Hansen e Sister Udagawa. Gente foi inspirado!! Elas ensinarem sobre á importância de nossa padrão e as coisas que nos evita de nossa trabalho. Nos focarmos nas coisas que nos podemos fazer para nos ajuda foca mais no trabalho e não tem sentimentos ruins ou fica conçado. É me ajudou muito! Tudo no reunião foi muito bom, mas essa foi meu favorito!

secundo a gente tive gincana musical por noite de integração  com nossa aula. cara foi engraçada de mais!! Eles tiverem uma palavra por uma musica e nos precisarmos achar á musica. Sister Soares ganhou, cara foi da hora!! Eu amo de mais esta aula e área!! 

esta semana eu tó aprendendo como aceitar o arbítrio das pessoas. essa é muito difícil para mim! Eu não entendo por que ou como pessoas podem escolher errado quando eles sabem o que é certa. ugggh!! meu coração!!!

nos sommos trabalhando com força, e basicamente correndo para todos de nossos compromissos! se eu não perdi pelo menos 3 kilos esta semana algo é errado!!! kkk mas ainda temos muitos pessoas não disposto para aceitar nossa mensagem. é muito difícil! eu sei que Deus é preparando pessoas para nos, mas eu não sento que nos acharmos eles ainda. ou eles não estão preparado por todo do evangelho ainda. sei lá. faz parte nei? 

Eu sei que essa trabalho é não facíl, nunca vai! Mas vale pena! Eu sou muito grata por minha oportunidade para servir aqui agora, com esses missionários! Eu estou aprendendo muito aqui, coisas que não são possível para aprender em casa. Coisas únicas pra uma missão!! Eu amo minha missão e todos de meus dificuldades, menos que eles são chato de mais!! 

Eu amo vocês com todo meu coração!!! 

Happy Halloween!!!!

com amor, 
Sister Moss


ENGLISH

Okay, then this week I'll write more! Firstly, we had zone meeting! I think it was almost a year without zone meeting so that was really cool for me! Just trainings and things like that, but it was time! I learned a lot there! I think my favorite training was for Sister Hansen and Sister Udagawa. Folks were inspired !! They teach us about the importance of our standard and the things that keep us from our work. Focusing on the things we can do to help us focus more on work and do not have bad feelings or get caught up. It helped me a lot! Everything at the meeting was very good, but this was my favorite!

secondly, we had musical jeopardy per night of integration with our class. Dude it was too funny !! They have a word for a song and we need to find the music. Sister Soares won, man was on time !! I really love this class and area !!

this week I'm learning how to accept people's will. This is very difficult for me! I do not understand why or how people can choose wrong when they know what is right. ugggh !! my heart!!!

we are working hard, and basically running to all of our commitments! if I did not lose at least 3 kilos this week something is wrong !!! kkk but we still have many people not willing to accept our message. is very difficult! I know God is preparing people for us, but I do not feel that we find them yet. or they are not prepared for all of the gospel yet. I do not know. is it part?

I know this work is not easy, it never will! But worth it! I am very grateful for my opportunity to serve here now, with these missionaries! I'm learning a lot here, things that are not possible to learn at home. Unique things for a mission !! I love my mission and all of my difficulties, unless they are too annoying !!

I love you with all my heart !!!

Happy Halloween !!!!

with love,
Sister Moss
