Wellll



Sorry guys I have to think of better titles for these kkkk. Well yesterday we received a call from our mission president telling us that there was a member in a nearby hospital that specializes in cancer. So we walked about 3 km to the hospital to give a blessing to the member. He and his wife are from São Paulo and were very excited to see us. They were talking with us that he has stomach cancer but you could tell that they were filled with faith, and whatever way it would go, whether it be to life or death, that they would accept the will of the Father. It was very strengthening experience. 

It is like what President Dieter F. Uchtdorf said to us, that night is just a shadow. And so if we have faith, we can again see the light of the sun, figuratively speaking. If we can just wait and weather out the trials of life, even when everything seems dark and bleak, the rays of the Atonement of Christ will start to shine and light the way back to the Father and life everlasting. I know that if can just keep our faith in Christ, and trust in Him, especially when it looks hopeless, He will carry us on His shoulders and bring us home.
I love you guys!!!!!!!! Keep up the faith!!!!!!! Christ knows exactly what you need, because He has already felt your pains.

Eternal



Well guys, I have indeed reached 1 year, yes I have been in the mission for 1 year, how crazy!!!!! I have learned a lot during the year, and I look forward to be able to serve 1 more!!!!

But this week I would like to talk about eternidade. Indeed, families can be eternal, forever linked one to another through the power of God and the temples that he has. Everyone will have this chance, to have an eternal family, where all of us can take part of the joy and happiness that comes from it. We just need to live worthy of this blessing. I know, with all of my heart that families are eternal, through the plan that God made, and made possible through the Atonement of Christ, our Savior and Redeemer. He loves us and wants us to be happy!!!!
Love all of you guys!!!!!! Let me know how everything goes!!!!!!!

Conference of Zone



And so this week we traveled to Juiz de Fora for this conference and it went very well, and I learned something a little bit interesting: it is why we do what we do. There are only three reasons why you will do something; because of fear, because we should or because of love. fear- because you are afraid of the consequences that will come because you did or did not do something
should- because it is the right thing to do, and so you do it
Love- because you sincerely love someone or something, and so you do it because you want to.
And really, if you are living your life for love, a love for God and for family, you will be happy. That is the great secret of how to be happy!! Do things because you love God, and you will be happy for all eternity.
Love you guys!!!!!! Keep me updated!!!!!!
