I hope you all had a fabulous week! This week was pretty much normal for us here, just teaching, eating and sleeping :)
past Wednesday we had the mission tour with the general authority. We
had the meeting in Aracaju with the rest of the elders in our zone and a
few other companionships. We up at 5:15 to get ready and get there in
time and then things started late... but we were there on time :) The
meeting was good. It is always amazing to hear general authority speak
and we learned alot of things of how we can become more productive in
our work. Our mission president also used this time to change some rules
in our mission, which ruffed the feathers of some people. It was
nothing major, it is just hard to change :)
there was also a wonderful Relief Society activity about virtuous women.
I don´t have time to explain it all, but there were women who dressed
up like virtuous women from the scriptures (Eve, Sarah, Mary, Ruth etc.)
and talked about the faith and such they had and then the actual RS
sisters shared their testionies. It was to show how we are all
important, all of us have faith and just because these women in the
sciprtures did these amazing things, we are all the same. It was such a
great activity and I will be keeping it in the back of my head for when I
come home and have a calling in Relief Society and we have to plan an
I just wanted to share a quote this week from
Preach My Gospel about hope. I don´t know what the exact words are
because I was too lazy to go through my suitcase to find my English PMG,
so I just tried my best to translate it in English from Portugues :)
But more or less it says- Hope is the trust in God´s promises, faith
that if we act today, the desired blessings with come in the future.
James E. Faust.
Hope can be dificult to have, but we can
cling to the faith that we have, the examples in the scriptures that
God´s always keeps His promises and that if we do the right things now
that all with work out for our good and we are promised we will have
eternal life in the world to come- happiness with our families without
I know that this church is true!
I love you all so much and hope you all have a fabulous week!!
