Week 42: Week of General Conference

 California, Itabuna is doing well. We have a good group that we are teaching and recently we found a 15 yr old young man that has been going to seminary and went to church once and to our delight he watched the 2 sessions of general conference yesterday. he expressed his desire to be baptized and we told him that we can help him do that. We are going to be teaching him this week and prepare him for baptism.
     We have been working   smoothly and teaching well. On thursday we saw a cat get hit by a car and go into shock, bleeding, and die. all right in front of us. it was pretty nasty, but interesting because i have never seen a cat shake so crazily as that one did. Saturday was an amazing 1st day of conference. I watched it alone in English in a different room. Even though i can understand the portugues, i like hearing the prophet and apostles real voices. I loved all the talks given. We taught some investigators between sessions as well.
    Elder G. Souza is a good man and a great missionary.
 i see a lot of potential in him. he told he that he was with elder Andrade before and it was a little rough with him. i know what its like because i was with elder andrade too. ELder G. souza seems like a guy that can be easily influenced, so i know it is my responsiblity, even though im younger, to be an excellent example to him. when elder Da Silva left and he arrived, i continued to work as i did with elder da silva and elder g. souza noticed that my work ethic is good. he complimented me and told me on saturday that he is very grateful to have an obedient companion and that this has already been the best transfer on his mission. i was a little shocked hearing this, but thanked him for the compliment and told him that in THIS area we WORK and i wont accept laziness. I told him We are going to exercise, clean the house, and WORK! Im grateful for elder Da Silva helping me develop this attitude and vision in the work. I hope i can be a good example of an excellent missionary and i will try my best.

    I know that families can be eternal if we follow the commandments and keep our covenants. Im grateful for the plan of happiness that god created for us, as well as the essential role that Jesus Christ plays in it.  I know this church is true and that Christ is our Leader and example. Im grateful for everything that i learned during general conference. i loved all the talks but especially Jeffery R. Holland´s about music and how all of God´s children are a part of the heavenly choir. I hope everyone had an awesome conference weekend and left feeling more inspired and uplifted.

elder da silva leaving


my new companion is elder g. souza. he is from S√£o Paulo. we walked a lot in the rain and mud the first day of work after he arrived

Elder G. Souza is 23 years old and doesn't speak English.  Only a teeny teeny teeny bit.  He has been on his mission for 1 year and 2 months


Some good food.  The reason I need to EXERCISE!


 he sings all the time...singing is good, but he is literally always singing. he sings on the road, at home, in the  bathroom (of course), and even in the public transportation. haha

i watched some sessions in portugues in the sacrament meeting room and some sessions in a class room with a TV playing conference in English
