I don't feel like writing too much today, so I'll probably just send a bunch of pictures. but we had transfers on Monday. I'm still here in Itanhaém, but I'm in a trio now! Sister Reis left, and a Peruvian came in her place and my companionship gained another Brazilian, Sister Oliveira. She goes home in 3 weeks, and was exactly what I needed here. She is incredible! and I am so grateful for Pres Cabral following the Spirit and putting her here. I needed her. She was a relief boat for me.
A came to church this week! It was so good to see her and her big pregnant belly in the chapel. MIRACLE! She has friends in the ward now :) and she WANTS to be baptized, but she has to get married...and her "husband" doesn't want to get married...grr...but a miracle happened and we were able to teach him the restoration. (he is usually ALWAYS working), but I'm just waiting to get there this week and talk to him. and he's going to be like "Sister Byrne...I prayed and asked God if Jospeh Smith was a prophet of God and I got my answer. I want to be baptized". It´s going to be soooo good :)
Also, we picked up a new investigator who smokes 3 packs of cigarettes a day. I have NEVER met anyone as addicted to cigarettes as her. I´m excited to see a miracle happen and help her quit, because she has to quit, or she´s going to die, the doctor told her, but she hasn't found the strength to do it yet. Little does she know, the Gospel is true and miracles happen as we apply its principles in our lives. plus we have the priesthood, the power and authority of God to help her.
Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God. Behold, I have fasted and prayed many days that I might know these things of myself. And now I do know of myself that they are true; for the Lord God hath made them manifest unto me by his Holy Spirit; and this is the spirit of revelation which is in me.
Scripture of the week, Alma 5:46 - answers don´t always come easy, but THEY come. but we have to show God that we really want it. Fasting is real. watch mormon message "hope of God´s light"
Love ya´ll have a great week!!
