Jan. 28th, 2013

Família querida,

Minha nossa senhora essa semana foi uma montanha russa de emoções! We had a great week that ended with a sour taste unfortunately. We worked really hard this week and with patience, the Lord has blessed us. We made a "plan of action" or game plan with Heavenly Father and as long as we are doing our part, He is doing the rest. We have some great investigators and some families are just falling into our lap. This sunday was probably the Best i have had on my mission. Our gospel principles class was full and i was very pleased with the attendance of less actives and investigators at church.

We had some more really neat experiences this week and one of our investigators is dating a guy who goes to utah valley and will move there in march so i will probably see her after the mission. cool huh? I am so glad that lexi is going to church! we are teaching a young gal who just turned 19... 2 weeks ago and she reminds me a lot of lexi. she knows the truth, but has struggled in the past to do what is right. almost everytime that we mark a visit with her... she is not there, or is leaving and we end up having to pass by later. But for some reason i felt obligated to persist and now i understand why. i believe that the Lord puts people in our path that are similar to our loved ones so that we can help them even thousands of miles away. when i teach Ana, i imagine lexi. when ana doesn't read, or go to church i didn't fail her, i failed lexi. You guys will understand better when you are missionaries. But this week we had a very touching visit with almost all our investigators and i really feel the Lords hand in our work. HE is the man! haha.

I love you all!
