But first, an update on the work here in Capão do Leão! So, me and Elder Galdino have really been trying to show the Lord that we are righteous missionaries and that the Lord can trust us with his children. So, we worked extra hard this week and found a few families that are awesome!! I am excited to start teaching them because they are humble and ready to learn! Right now, Niara e Aurici are progressing and doing so well! We really gained a friendship with them and there is a possibility that they will be baptized soon! But yeah, for right now that is the highlights!
But this week I think I felt the Spirit the most strongly while teaching this week then any other week all of my mission! I have really been working on strengthening my own testimony to help others. So this week during my studies, I had a doubt about a little bit of doctrine! So I studied it a little deeper and found an answer, but I prayed that the Lord would help me share what I learned with somebody. So we went to the house of Andrei that day to teach him and his mom, Lanice. Andrei was baptized a year ago and his mom isnt a member but loves to visit the church. Anyways we started teaching them and I seriously had a moment where I didnt need to think about what to say or what I should ask, I just talked. It was almost a little weird because even she asked questions that I normally would have to think about, but I just talked and the answer came out of me!! It was awesome!! And after the lesson, Andrei stayed with us and Lanice had to get ready for work... and Andrei asked THE SAME EXACT DOUBT that I had that morning! Word for word!! Exactly the same!! It was awesome!! I felt so good because without having to think, I had the answer and helped him understand!! It was so awesome and after, I cant describe the feeling the I had after!! It was such an amazing awesome cool feeling!! Haha so awesome!!
Oh and this week we did a service project... at this guys house... that has............ 200 dogs........ Jonathan remember when you said someday I would herd chiuahuas? I thought of that exactly when I saw this guy. We helped hime pick up the poo... of 200 dogs.... that was um.... fun....... cough cough........
But yeah that was so awesome! I love all the pictures that you are sending! And oh I have some bad news... this week I was putting on my pants and I looked behind me, and my pants had a hole. so I looked at my other pants... It had another hole... and all of my others... holy as well... pun intended.... anyways the fact is that all of my pants have holes. Some big some small...
