Hello guys! how are you today? I have some very interesting news, but nothing to crack the world, just simple little things that have happened in my life and yet are a miracle in my eyes.
On Monday we ran like crazy to leave everything ready for the mission council meeting that was on Tuesday. My companion and I were very excited, especially after a general conference that answered all our prayers and questions, and after a morning of interviews with the best mission president in the world! It was magnificent! We also helped the zone leaders from Porto Seguro who came in to the city to take an English test.
On Tuesday we had the mission council starting early in the morning. It was very inspiring and powerful. We discussed the teachings of general conference as well and how we can apply what we have been taught in our mission, with investigators and in our lives. It was a very good discussion. Then we learned a little more about how to teach our investigators so they can receive the blessings of baptism and the gospel more quickly. President also asked Elder Costa e Silva to sing the hymn "A poor wayfaring man of grief" It was very good. Later in the evening we took the everyone to the bus station and Elder Brito went with Elder Costa e Silva while I finished some tasks in the office with the rest of the assistants.
Wednesday we had many tasks to do early so we started running and doing everything on time, it was nothing different, only that we started very early, before 8:00 a.m.
Thursday It was a little different, Elder Prado, Elder Jenkins and Elder High finished their missions and went home. We took them all to the airport. Elder Prado went early in the morning, we said goodbye to him. Elders Jenkins and Elder High went to the airport in the afternoon. We had lunch with them and we said goodbye ... I love those guys, very much; They're like brothers to me. taught me, helped me and made me laugh. They are good and finished with honor. I'm going to miss those guys.
Yesterday we worked normally, solving problems and making everything work in peace. In other words, giving our best so we can we find a family that will progress fast. We are helping some more people to prepare for baptism. Everything will work out and we know that with the Lord by our side we will find more and more elect people. We will be able to bring them to Christ and his true Church.
I am learning more about becoming a better and more effective missionary, I have had a lot of help and I am trying to apply what I learn; and as we learn from Elder Holland, it is okay for us not to be perfect, what matters is to keep on seeking to be perfected in Christ and he will fill our holes.
I love you family
Then there is a nice Audi that was parked close to our house!
