THIS WEEK WAS SO AWESOME AND ALSO KIND OF SUPER STRESSFUL! But the best weeks are always the most stressful amright?
Shout out to my awesome companion Sister Carriel for always be there for me to rub the stress knots out of my back.
Me at 8:30 in the street last night: Our plans fell through and we had been knocking doors and no one let us in or even said we could come back another day and I was so tired that I started laughing super hard and then I started crying and it was pretty dark and the streets arent paved and I stepped in a whole and tripped and fell as I was laugh crying and Sister Carriel picked me up and anyone who didnt know me I think 100% thought that I was drunk. What a life, né?
This week I was able to see how much Ive grown spiritually. In the beginning, I was so worried that I never knew what to say, but now, when I open my mouth, its not even ME talking, its filled by the Spirit to tell that specific person what God wants them to know. BEING A SERVANT OF THE LORD IS INCREDIBLE.
Our beloved Presidente and Sister Louza visited us this week! We made tea and cake and it was lovely and I love them SO MUCH. I also had a little interview with President and he helped me SO much with some things that had been on my mind, distracting me. Basically the cousel he gave me works for anything situation: you have to make a plan with the Lord. Ive started praying, like "Hey Pai Celestial, this has been distracting me lately, this is my plan to be better, wanna help me?" And every since thursday, I has been marvelous and I feel so much closer to my Father In Heaven :)
Final reason this week rocked (and stressed me out): BAPTISM! A man, Nelson who is 75 and SUPER AWESOME! Our experience with him was super up and down and required alot of fasting and praying to overcome doubts and struggles and to fight against Satan getting into his head and EVERYONE made sacrifices and in the end, all our prayers were answered and he was baptized on Saturday, Confirmed on Sunday, and Ive never seen him happier!!
ALSO I GOT A CALL TODAY THAT NOÉ FROM SÃO GABRIEL RECEIVED THE MELCEZEDEK PRIESTHOOD YESTERDAY AND IS GOING TO THE TEMPLE NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love being a missionary. straight up.
baptism of Irmão Nelson!!!!!
When you are in the middle of teaching the restoration and satan calls and your investigator walks out of the room to make coffee so you and your comp take selfies while you wait.
