Camera still broken, dealing with adversity, one tired sister

This week was great. We're teaching a woman named A who is AWESOME! She just gets it, so quick. we had a lesson with her about the Book of Mormon -it's weird, we have a separate lesson with the Book of Mormon because we have limited Books of Mormon...Book of Mormons...copies of the Book of Mormon, so we can only give them to people that we think will actually read it - anyway, when I said that we were going to be talking about the Book of Mormon she got all excited and was like "I read about the Book of Mormon in that pamphlet ya'll left me and was going to ask where I can buy one to do the studies in the back of the pamphlets."

First off, not very many people actually read the pamphlets we leave, and secondly NO ONE does the studies in the back!! She is AMAZING and has a baptismal date for the 27th of December! BUT she's not married to the man she lives with...he is super awesome too, but hardly has time to sit in the lessons with us because he works all day everyday. also she is super pregnant and her feet look like soccer balls they are crazy swollen, so its hard for her ot get around...but we´re going to try to get her a ride to Church this next Sunday, I am SURE she is going to love going to Church!

Ae is still struggling with the palavra de sabedoria (Word of Wisdom), we're going there tonight to have a heart to heart with him to evaluate if he is actually willing to change or just likes the idea of changing.

God is good! this week I was sitting in Church feeling bad that no one that said they were going to come to Church showed up, but then Áa (an investigator we haven't visited for 3 weeks) showed up! AND she said that she was there last week (we skipped church last week for our Christmas tour....we went to church in Guaruja) AND she brought a friend! If that is not a miracle, I don't know what is! We're going to her house tomorrow to evaluate the situation and help her progress towards baptism.

Not much else to say...a lot of hours traveling on the bus. A lot of singing. Little sleep. And one tired, but happy sister missionary.

These past couple days I've been thinking a lot about obedience. Christ the Son of God, was exactly in tune with the Father. ALWAYS doing His will. That is why they were one. They aren't literally one person, but they are one because Christ's desires were God's desires. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I need to be better at not just doing what He would do, but WANTING and desiring what He would want and desire.

I love ya'll. I hope you have a good week.

  1. So how do you give them that compelling reason? By treating this question as an opportunity for your sales pitch. By thinking about what it is that the interviewer wants in a candidate and what it is that they need to hear.
