Buuut these last few weeks have been incredible.... and super hard! Opposition in all things right? haha. As of the work here, we're teaching a lot! Trying to find our friends! As of right now we have 3 people for baptism this week. A young man (19 years old) "JV" who is super super quiet, he barely talks to us but he seems to be understanding everything and he likes church a lot so that's good! He prays and reads the things we ask him to read and pray about. Super awesome! He's gone to church with us twice now and is just missing 2 lessons to be baptized! We'll teach them this week and have the baptism on Saturday!!! Woooo!
Then we have a young woman (14years old) "R", who is super super eleita!!! She's perfect! She's a friend of a member and has such a huge desire to be baptized! It's super cute!
Then we have another young man (13 years old) "L", who is also super eleito, but he struggles a lot because he thinks he's a huge failure to everyone. it's super sad that that's how he sees himself.. We're working a lot with him and his friend who have literally asked to be baptized! It's so cool to see that young men of 12-13 years of age have the desire to change and be better. He really understands the things we teach which is super super awesome!!
Beyond this its a lot of friends of members or friends of our investigators. But we also do a lot of street contacting too! Which is much harder in my opinion, usually the people we meet in the streets don't want anything do to with us. or they just want to be friends and they don't want us to teach them. it's rough!
I have been so blessed to be able to serve here and really love the people here! I know that without a doubt, that this is the Church of Christ that has been restored to the earth for us here in these Latter days! I know that Joseph Smith was called of God and that he really was a prophet of God! I am so so grateful for the chance I've had to serve as a servant of God here in Brazil!
Love you all so much!
