Alegria



Well this week we have been working a lot with the members in the branch that we are in, because they have a lot of family that aren’t members or that aren’t going to church, so we have been working with them to try and help them. And the great thing is that they can see the difference that the evangelho(gospel) of Jesus Christ has in the lives of their family and friends, there is a visible difference between people that live the evangelho of Jesus Christ and people who don’t.
And it’s because wickedness never was happiness. It only has a form of pleasure that fades away as fast as it came. But the great thing is that God knows what will make us happy, that’s why He gave us His Son, not only to teach us and show us the way, but to give the ultimate sacrifice for us, so that we can be happy, for eternity. 
Love you guys!!!!! Always be happy!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let me know how everything goes!!!!!!!!!!!

Elder Bassett


Mission Conference Lunch

So this week we were visited by a one of the 70 (the person that is in charge of this specific ├írea) and so the entire mission got together and Elder Bassett gave a talk and a lot of good advice to help us with our work. He is still working on his Portuguese, but it’s pretty good. And also I received a new comp, and he is pretty good. 

Waiting in line to meet Elder Bassett
But one of the things that Elder Bassett said to us while bearing his testimony is that the Savior of the world is also his Savior, and the Savior of each and every one of us. He knows each of us by name and wants our happiness. He wants us to return to live with the Father for all time and eternity. That is why He gave His flesh and blood in our behalf, so now we just have to repent and we will be saved.
Love you guys!!!!! Let me know how everything goes!!!!!!

Transfers



Skype with Elder Hilchie!!

Well guys, I’m getting a new comp this week, and we have a mission tour with Elder Bassett.  I also had skype, which went really well, it was great to see my family!!!!! And so this week we knocked a lot of doors, had some good conversations with the people, it went well, but we met a guy who grows coffee in his backyard just for him and his son. Oh, and I went to wizard, a place where people go to learn English. While I was there, we talked about why we are in Brasil, and I was asked by one of the people if I could bear my testimony in English about Jesus Christ. It went really well, the Holy Ghost was strong, and afterwards I bore my testimony in Portuguese. It was just a really great experience for me.

But yeah, that’s the great thing about the Holy Ghost, He will testify of Jesus Christ in all languages, but you have to listen for Him, He will not come when everyone is shouting or if you are focused in something else, you have to pay attention and seek for Him if you want to feel the comfort He can give. But the great thing is that our Father in Heaven loves us, and He will come closer to us if we come closer to Him. I love all of you guys!!! Seek out the peace and comfort that God can give to you whether it be reading the scriptures, praying, or just finding a quiet moment to think about our Lord and Savior. I can promise that your week will be better if you do this!!!!! Have an awesome week!!!!!!!
