"There is sunshine in my soul today!"

Conferência Geral!!

Needless to say, I was incredibly excited for General Conference. And
it was so great!! The only problem was that the translators spoke too
fast haha. But I understood the majority of what was said, and I loved
it!! I have so many things to improve in my life... But so much hope
in how to do it. :D

This week was a week of miracles! (And the opposite... everything
comes in opposites...) There was one day when we had walked from one
side of town to the other to see an investigator, and he turned out
not to be home. By the time we got back to the area we usually work
in, we had very little time to work. We visited a few people, but
still we weren't finding much success. It was just then that a woman
called us and asked us to teach her. Just like that. She had already
been taught by the sisters but hadn't been baptized because her
boyfriend doesn't want to get married. However, she told us that she
really wants to be baptized, and she is willing to leave her
boyfriend, raise three kids on her own, in order to receive the
blessings of baptism. I was so astounded at her faith. We also found a
really great family (who is married--shocker here). The wife isn't
terribly excited... but the husband, Misarel, loves the gospel. He
came to conference. :)

Oh!! This week I went on splits!! We have a lot of investigators right
now, so Friday we had to do a division in order to visit everyone. I
went with a recent convert, Elica, to teach people. I think, for the
first time, I felt completely confident in my ability to lead as a
missionary. :) (It's really easy to let your Brazilian trainer do the
majority of the talking... so this was really good for me). Elica and
I found three new people too, which was super super great. :) Anyway,
I have a lot of pictures to send... but I think that I'll have to wait
for next week when the internet is better to send them.

Remember that the Lord loves you! Stay strong! And remember to do the
little things--family prayer, scripture study, FHE, and Church
attendence go a long way to strengthen your faith.

Love you all so much!
