February 4, 2013


This week was amazingggg. This is probably the best week i have had as a missionary. Not because everything went my way, but because my faith is growing and the Lord was very much present in our day to day. I was able to accept the things that are out of my control, trust in the Lord, and keep moving forward. I can honestly say that i have never been happier than i am right now.
We did two splits with the elders quorum and we were able to teach WAY more people. We had some great visits and on sunday we saw the fruits of our hard work and patience. We have been working hard and we are trying to work smarter as well. We are teaching better, more clearly, and more direct.
The Lord is blessing us for our righteous desires and i am seeing now, more than ever, that the gospel is not a list of beliefs or rules, but a map to be successful and find happiness in this life. We all have problems, but as i was reading moroni 7 he taught that we must have faith, hope, and charity. But he doesn't just say faith. He says: "Faith in Jesus Christ." We must hope that through Christ we will be resurrected and that we will receive eternal life. So no matter what happens, no matter the problems that we face, we have hope. We understand the atonement of Jesus Christ. We know He wants us to be happy.We know that through Joseph Smith a fulness of the gospel was restored and we can find peace in the words of a living prophet.
I have learned to love the words to a hymn- Assombro Me Causa- which in english is: I stand all amazed. We can all change :)

Amo vocês,
