So we had another week full of miracles! We worked all week and had a lot of really special moments. We had two people marked for this week but one of them didn't go right so he is going to wait until next week. We spent a lot of time this week checking up on our baptisms for the next two weeks and our recent converts so we didn't find a lot of new people like we would have liked to, but the Lord is blessing us so much that are week is already full before we start it. We really don't have enough time to do everything that we need to, but with lot of help from God we are having a lot of success.
We were able to baptize Irmã Maria yesterday in the stake conference. It was really crazy. A small chapel and a LOT of people! Then after everybody was leaving and we were changing clothes the stake president told us that we weren't going to baptize. He said that we didn't authorize it with him and that we weren't allowed to baptize her. But then after a little while a lot stress we got it all figured out and she was able to be baptized.
She is really great! She has a lot of faith and a testimony but she is just having a lot of problems and there isn't anything we can do to help her, we just have to wait and keep praying. Her son, his wife and their 3 kids were living in her apartment, but then they left her with the 3 little kids and they don't want anything to do with her or their children. She is already pretty old and is having to take care of three little kids without help or money. She is super happy and always enthusiastic but she is just really needing some help in her life. Keep her in your prayers.
We had a member of the 70 speak in our stake conference and it was really great! I learned a lot and felt like God was really talking to our little ward. He talked a lot about missions and how important they are. He said that God had this plan for us long before we came to this earth. That we all have a very specific purpose in this life. He said that we have our right to choose, but God has already created a plan for us, So we can choose to follow that plan and serve a mission or we can choose to be disobedient. Its our choice. He also talked about being exactly obedient to Gods commandments and paying our tithing. He was really great and I learned a lot.
Anyways I am super happy and loving life. tchau!
