Hey guys this one´s gonna be a short one I´m sorry!!! So here´s just the highlights from this week:
– Marcos got confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and received the Holy Ghost!! The dude is seriously on fire, already talking about a mission and everything.
– Marcos told us to go visit his neighbors and talk to them about the church. They´re super humble people and really open to the gospel and everything. But the MVP is our boy PEDRO hahaha that kid is a stud!!! He barely talks, and when he does he just looks at the floor and kinda looks like he´s gonna cry. BUT THATS BESIDE THE POINT haha the kid is way too smart to be 11. He´s snagging everything we say and reading and praying like there´s no tomorrow! Pedro is the man.
– sometimes while I´m talking I like forget I´m talking but then I come to and realize that I´m speaking in portuguese… hahaha it´s super weird but really cool!! I´m diggin it.
– the 2nd counselor of the bishopric in Santo Antonio stopped us on the street the other day either super stoked for life or he was on meds hahaha the dude was psycho! But he started telling us how he wanted to start english classes at the school where he teaches in Recanto, and how he baptized like a bajillion people because of it and all this stuff and then he just ran off. He gave us his number, so we´re excited to start working with him and everything!
For real fam I´m bumming out that this one is so short. So here´s a spiritual bit right quick: NEVER underestimate the power of prayer, and NEVER doubt that our Father in Heaven has a plan specifically made for each and every one of us. It´s through diligent prayer and study of the scriptures that we can learn even more about that plan. And then we can turn around and bless so many people because we know exactly why we´re here.
The church is true, the book is blue, I have a buttload of work to do. peace be the journeyy
With all the love I can give through a handshake,
