oi familia! i hope thanksgivng was good. i am happy for rebecca and her blessing, the fotos were so adorable! i heard people say that mitt romney was chosen to be the finance secretary for president trump, is that true. (sorry this keyboard does not have a question mark...)
this week was great, it was physically callenging, but there were lots of blessings. a lot of less actives went to church on sunday for the ward conference. we found a lot of new investigators and a lot of couples and families. We also ave an investigator, Igor that is 16 and he wants to be baptized and has been going to church by himself for a while now. He just studies and works all day so it is hard to find time to teach him. but he is great and will hopefully be baptized soon! We are also working with Helena and Joel, Alceu and Elissangela, and Lucas and Luciele that are alll great couples with so much potencial! there is a lot of work to do here and i am excited!
the conference with elder Costa was so amazing, he told a lot of stories and gave a ton of great advice and it was really spiritual. He was also hilarious all the missionaries were laughing practically the whole time!
This week I learned to depend a lot more on the Savior and the atonement that is always there to give us strength and comfort. I am learning to be greatful for challenges because they give us the opportunity to be humble and feel closer to God. They also give us the opportunity become more like Christ. I studied about how there is opposition in all things and when we have challenges we are presented with a choice and we can use our agency to chose to develop a Christlike attribute. This is how progression works. I learned a new mindset that whenever we face a challenge, instead of complaining or feeling bad for ourself, We can think of what Christlike attribute we have the chance to aquire, such as pacience, love, or faith. Then we can think of the choices necessary to aquire it and do that.
Have a great week :)
