I am serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Brazil, Porto Alegre North Mission. I post on this blog every week, so check it out to hear about my life as a missionary!

Week 32

Not much to report from this week. We finally located a less-active family and taught them a few lessons. The father (Henrique) is a member for quite a long time, but fell into inactiviy after the death of his wife. He has two daughters ages 9 and 10 that we are helping him teach so they can be baptized here in a few weeks. It was cool when we told him that he could baptize his own daughters after a few weeks of activity. Henrique became emotional when we commited him to work towards that goal. The only problem is that we can only teach them on Saturdays because he works a lot.

Yesterday was a great experience as Fast and Testimony meeting. I had been working on making my fasts more effective and felt very good after completing this one. I bore my testimony in church on the absolute truthfulness of the gospel. There is literally no other way to return to the presence of our loving Heavenly Father. What a glorious plan that has been presented to us and how blessed we are to have the opportunity to follow our Saviour Jesus Christ!
