Nossa lei é Trabalhar (Our Law is to work)


How is everyone?

My week has really been a race. Elder Vigeta and I have been working like crazy and our prayers have really been answered! We have about 80 investigators that we have contacted in the passed 3 weeks! We have 31 new investigators this week and about 15 families.

It has been really amazing how our prayers have been answered and how much we are working. We were able to bring a family to church yesterday that are really interested in the church. I am praying that they had a good experience, considering that our Ward is really primitive. We are really trying to motivate the members to be missionaries and it is starting to pay off. We have received a few references that are showing real potential. We have been sharing a message at every one of our lunch appointments about missionary work and how the members can be missionaries and it has really been a help to a lot of the members here to know what they can do to help.

We also are starting to collect a bit of information that will really help the next group of missionaries; How long have you been members, what is your calling, married in the temple, former religion, etc.

It is really cool, I think we will present this idea to presidente. It will really help when we can show up in a new area with all of the information right in front of us.

We have had a lot of really cool experiences. Yesterday we taught a family that has really been searching for the truth of the gospel; and we have really been searching for them. I am so grateful for missionary work and for the guidance of the Lord when we are doing the right things! Obedience is an important principle and the blessings are real!

Love you all, I will write more next week but I've got to run...

Thank you for you email's they mean a whole lot to me!!!

yay! it sounds like he's doing so well on the mission. how are YOU holding up without him?

i took the princess quiz. fun but annoying. annoying because they kept using the wrong "your"...instead of "you're." i know, i know, i'm lame. it's my pet peeve. haha but what a fun quiz to take!

i'm snow white. =Pure and trusting. You are a gentle soul who can get along with just about anyone. Everyone you meet instantly falls in love with you. How can they resist? You have a pure, lovable nature that's irresistable. Just don't trust everyone who comes across your path.

It's been interesting. I think that a few things have made it easier. Knowing what to expect sending out the second missionary, wanting this so much for him for so long and wondering if it would really happen, also his letters make it easier. He is so happy and each week grows more and more. With each of his letters the spirit reminds me that he is where the Lord wants him to be. While I do miss him, his day to day thoughtfulness and his wonderful sense of humor I am reminded each day that he is where he should be and where I've wanted him to be. Missing him excessively almost feels ungrateful.
