On Thursday, Elder Aidukaitis from the quorum of the 70 came to the CTM and spoke at a devotional. he talked about missionary work. he was suuuper funny! Something that stuck out to me that he said was, ´´People can tell with a first impression whether you're happy or sad. ALWAYS BE HAPPY!! He also said it is not a curse to be on a mission. it is a PRIVELIGE! I know that is true. It really is a privilege and a once in a lifetime opportunity to be here on a mish, especially in Brazil :) And whether on a mission or not we can be happy! God has given us so much. We can recognize that through many things like our families, and friends. One of the biggest testimonies that shows god loves us is this beautiful world that he has given us to live on. Take time to admire it and enjoy the outdoors and nature. And more importantly, love the people who are in this world. Love your parents and your siblings. Give them a hug. Tease your dog (Roz, give Gizmo a poochie smoochie for me). Even though he is just a little silly dog, i miss that little stinker. hahahaha. And most importantly, talk to your heavenly father. he is always there to help and he does answer prayers.
I love you all and I love hearing from you!! Send me an email and ill do my best to respond.
