Happy Labor Day!
|Me and Sister Meireles|
We have tons of people of visit and teach and I'm so grateful that we're busy. Que bênção. We have been so busy planning that we haven't been sleeping enough and then I don't have time to write in my journal so I'm pretty far behind. This is a problem for me lol. We have 2 people preparing to get baptized in 2 weeks and so we're really excited for those. The Lord really does work miracles and keeps putting people in our path that need the gospel. I have seen it change lives already.
I got up to bear my testimony at church yesterday and it was the first time I did it in Portuguese! It went well...despite the fact that I was extremely nervous and almost passed out afterwards. But I'm fine now! haha. I feel like I don't do a good enough job explaining what I do here or the experiences I'm having or the things I'm learning but it is hard to explain. What I do know is that everything I'm learning now is shaping me into the person I want to become; more like Jesus Christ. That is all of our goal here on earth and the more I teach that to people and see the growth and change, the more it strengthens my testimony that this is the true church.
I love this gospel and love being a missionary. Sometimes we have some awkward situations...(like every day)...but I learned during my mission in Nauvoo from another Sister "People already think we're weird walking around in skirts, might as well share something cool with them." So pretty much don't worry about it and preach what you know. I feel so blessed to be here.
Happy Birthday this week, Thursday, to my Wonderful Dad
- here's to many many more! Love you! Til next week-
