We got to Skype Tyler on Christmas!  He is doing great and loves Brazil and Brazilians!  He is forgetting English and has an accent.  He and Courtney spoke in Portuguese for part of the time, pretty cool!  He says that Lasagne is his favorite Brazilian Dish and that he had fejoida with pig ear and snout in it. He is currently in a city with 100,000 residents and is working to build up the church in that area.  He has grown in every aspect and we are so thankful that he has this opportunity.  What a blessing to all of us.  He sends his love to everyone and wants us all to remember the reason for the Christmas season.  Carry the light of Christ with you throughout the year!

Merry Christmas!!

A Multidao (A Multitude)

Well this week we were walking and encountered a group of people sitting and we went there and started to teach them, and it was like the parabola of the sementes(seeds). The word of God went and fell on stony ground(a heart closed): who walked away while we were teaching, which left only those who wanted to learn more about Christ, the "good ground". And realmente, we can only invite and help. And those who accept are blessed with the love of God, because this is what He wants, He wants all of us to return home, that is why He sent His Son to live and die and live again so that we may all be able to return home. Amo meu Salvador, e sei que sem Ele, sou nada. (I love the Savior, and I know without Him I am nothing)

love you guys!! have a great week!!!

Well, a milagre(miracle) happened; this week one of my companions was sick, and so we had to do a division with a member to get to do the visits necessary. (one of the good things of a trio) and so they went and the member was so excited and happy that he marked to visit more people that Friday, and during lunch at his house, he sat and ate and talked with us, the first time he has done that with any missionaries. He said that he had an excellent time and that he wants to do this as often as possible. I think this proves that there really is a great joy in service.
And service if the fiber of heaven, perhaps that is why we have so much joy when we serve our neighbor. Because we can feel the love of our Lord and Savior. So let us serve one another always so that our lives may be filled with that joy.
Love you guys!!!! Have a great week!!!!

We Have Been Discovered

Well guys, the secrets out, they have finally found out that we are, in fact, the illuminati...... kkkk no, but today we had a man ask us if we were the illuminati, so that’s not something you hear every day. But seriously, I don’t know why the whole world has such a hard time figuring out who we are, we talk with everyone about who we are, why we are here and where we are going. But yeah, at least it makes the days interesting kkkk
Well guys, the month of Natal has indeed arrived! And I would like to challenge everyone to be a light, wherever you might be, unto the world, so that others can be influenced for the good. Bring a little bit of peace and happiness in the life of another, talk about Christ with a friend, and really bring Him into the center of your life. I promise that as you do that, you can truly help bring about peace and joy this year.
Love you guys!!!!!! Let me know how it all goes!!!!

Creative Plate

Well guys, this week we had an activity where we invited all of the relief society(the organization of the adult women in the church) to make a plate of food mais(most) creative possible, basically a master chef. And it went very well, everyone ate and laughed and it was in general good.
God the Father wants His children home again, in families and in glory. I read this phrase and really hit me, God wants everyone home again, and He is God. We, being children of Him, just have to do our part, we have to care and want this as well. We need to follow the path, the very straight and narrow path during this life in order to go home. We need to give it our all, and God will help us with every footstep. I
know that He is always there for us, always has been and always will be. it is possible, just trust and follow the example of His Son. We may stumble, but He will always extend His hand to help us up.
love you guys!!!!!!! hope this week goes awesome!!!!!

Well guys, this week we had one of the general authorities come and talk with us. And wow, he is a very spiritual person with a lot of conhencimento(knowledge) about the gospel. I think the whole mission learned a lot through his teachings. he was very excited and animado(emotional) to speak with us, one moment he would laugh, the next he would cry and then he was laughing again, and the Holy Spirit that testified of his teachings was very strong because he only spoke what the Holy Spirit put in his heart. He even said that he spoke about nothing that he had planned, which I found very interesting.
i think that we can learn a lot from his example, instead of doing our will, let us instead do the will of the Father, and not be afraid of what we need to say or what we need to do, for in that very hour, He shall put the words into our mind, and we shall speak as angels. 
love you guys!!! let me know how everything goes!!!!!

Well, guys, this week went pretty well, and there is one story I would like to share. So we knocked a house and the lady that answered talked with us for a bit and we discovered that she was the wife of a minister of another church, who spoke well of us, saying that we (missionaries) worked to gain souls for Christ. And when we asked her if she knew someone whom we could help, she gave us the name of her nephew, so we went there. Although we were unable to speak with him, we were able to speak with his family, who not only accepted our message, but were friends with a member in the church! what a small world kkkkk.
And this is part of the reason why we need to be the light of the world, always full of good works, so that people may come closer to Christ. There are always people that we can help and are helping, even if we may not be able to see it. I know that as we strive to do what is right, the windows of heaven shall open, and we will be filled with the light of Christ, whereby we may literally become a light to help those who are lost find the way back to the path of God.
love you guys!!! let me know how it all goes!!!

Well guys, remind me never to ride a motorcycle kkkk. But seriously, we went to the hospital yesterday to pray and give messages about Christ and there were a few people there because of motorcycle accidents. One lady showed us a picture of her husband, and it looked like a bear had gone and eaten parts of his leg and arm. But all in all, it went well, we were able to bring some smiles to their faces, so that is always worth it.
And as I was talking with one young man, he told me that he had not gone to church in a while, still believed in God and all, just was not going to church. But it appeared to me that the accident that happened (a milagre,(miracle) he just scraped up his foot in a motorcycle accident) had humbled him sufficient so that God could touch his heart. And in our lives, does this ever happen? Of course it does, we need to be humble so that we can become closer to God, one way or another. And if we humble ourselves before God and accept His will, all things will work for our good! I promise that as we all become more humble, we will be able to see the great blessings God has in store for us and we will be able to overcome all of life´s challenges
Love you guys!! Hope all goes well!!!!!
