Engenho de Dentro Dois

Nov. 23, 2015

Hello world!

I love you all. And I know the Savior lives!!

Today was transfers and I will be in the second area of the same ward! So its gonna be lots of fun:)

This week Sis Paim (old companion), Sis Mamani (new companion) and I worked in a trio in both areas, and we worked until we couldnt physically work any more! It feels good to know that we did everything we possibly could and then a little more. We saw many miracles in the little things. Miracle after miracle after miracle. I am so grateful for the blessings that we recieve. And I know the Lord knows us individually.

My new friend Helio is about 70 years old. We knocked (or rather clapped) on his door and started to talk to him. He was very nice until we started teaching about the Gospel of Jesus Christ- faith repentence baptism... when we got to baptism he ordered us to leave. I looked him in the eyes and said "I love you. God loves you." He started to cry and asked if we could help him repent and be clean again. My companion bore a wonderful testimony of the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. We are working with him to stop drinking and he is more and more happy each day.

We are also teaching a man from Haiti who only speaks French and Creole... no Portugues, no English, no Spanish. Its an adventure and the Lord helps a lot!! Also we teach a lot with pictures:)

Sunday was the Primary Program and I love little children! Such strong testimonies!

I know the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I know God lives. I will follow God's plan. I love you all.
