i had to sit and think for a little bit about what transfer im on.....the weeks and days are realy becoming a blur, especially this past week. We were scheduled to have our zone conference this week, but President was inspired to move it up a week, who knows why but the Lord, but we dont doubt that there is a good reason behind it. President had warned us all to prepare a 7 min talk about righeousness and one of us would be chosen to share. I got that priveldge, i was just relieved i wasnt asked to speak doctrine & convenants 4 because i just dont quite have that one down. I also got to do a demonstration infront of everyone with my companion of one of the new trainings we´d recieved. Hey, if you are prepared you need not fear; so i was relieved that i had been practicing the trainings the previous week. This conferencia foi muuito bom. I learned so much, so much that i need to change to be a better missionary ane person, and the pracitces we did really are helping my companion and I. I really wish Sister Morais and I could stay companions for longer, i love working with her. But its not very likely, as we have 2 or 3 more sisters coming this next transfer, and all the other sisters are training, so we´ll clearly be training. We´ll see next week where i will be.
We had the baptism of Marcos this sunday, he is such a good youth. He´d recieved a book of mormon from one of our young women and accepted the convite for baptism right away. His brother was baptised the other week, Lucas. Its awesome to be a part of helping people find the gospel. The spirit was strong at his baptism, and I felt that excitment burning in me the whole day because of it. Its a happiness like no other happy feeling, when you see someone take that step towards heaven, towards returning to our Heavenly Father.
We are working with a couple of people towards baptism in the incoming weeks, praying for a miracle that we can help one young man understand the need for baptism by immersion with autority that he can be baptsed this sunday. We found a family this past saturday, the grandma (elanane) and granddaughter (D´diane) are of the Assembly, and the mother Tatiane is baptsist. But Wilson & Cidanie havent found a church they believe to be true yet. we shared the restoration with them yesterday. The spirit surely was touching the heart of wilson, but he was nervous about being prepared for baptism. We´re going to push him to exercise his faith that he can be ready. At times thats what we need, someone to take us by the hand to lead us. And that is what our role as missionarys are, to be guides. we are excited that he accepted. He can be an example to his family. We also found a young man, through Ricardo, that really wants change his life. He has a lot of problems that will take a lot of faith, prayer and patience but we want to help him.
Am excited for this week to trabalhar er work hard! im already starting to feel like my body is a thousand years old...im not looking forward to walking home (We go to the city center for our emails, a good hour walk) sister morais and I have been running like crazt last week
