Oi tudo mundo! Esta semana foi legal!
[Hi everyone! This week was cool!]
So this week was the first week with my new companion, Elder Papalino, from São Paulo! He is really cool and Elder Bledsoe and Elder Pereira arrived as well.
We then got to work and we have 3 new baptismal dates. And something really cool happened this week. Ok two things.
First, I hit 4 months in the mission! I can’t believe that that much has already passed!
Second was a literal gift from God. So, we were a house with some investigators, and we were teaching about the plan of salvation. So we finished and we felt like we should invite them to get baptized so we invited them for the 22 of July and the mom got really spooked. She then told us that her dad died one year ago from that date and that she was planning on doing nothing that day because she would be super sad and then we came along and told her something that could change her life. It was an awesome experience. Then after that, they mentioned that they were not married yet because of some legal issues but are getting married this month! So guess I am going to a marriage! And as we were finishing up we asked them the three things they need to do (these things are usually read the Book of Mormon, pray to know if it is true, and go to church). We said one and the dad said, marriage (I mean, yeah that too) and then we said second, and they said baptism (YES not what we were going for but yes) and the best thing is that they came to church! Dude I have such a strong testimony of our Heavenly Father that He lives and helps to prepare His children to return back to Him. I am grateful for this week and am excited to continue to work!
