October 24, 2016 Temple

Este semana fui muito bom! Only a week until transfers! I can´t believe I have already been in Brasil for almost 4 months! 

Here are some pictures from our p-day last week when we got to go to the temple!!! 

It was such a great opportunity and I was able to feel ``at home`` at the temple and so much peace and joy. I know that I am in the right place and I am truly starting to love being here. 

On Thursday 3 of my recent converts and 3 recent converts of the other Sisters in our area all went to the temple to do Baptisms! We didn't have the opportunity to go. But Antonio told us on Sunday that it was a wonderful experience for him. All of our recent converts are doing great, are firm in the gospel and are continuing to grow!

Thursday-Saturday we taught lots of lessons. One of the lessons was with an 18 year old boy. He has said that he has a "hard head" and is super smart! He has been reading the Book of Mormon and a few weeks ago, he asked to take the Gospel Principles book home. The book has about 40 chapters each only about 4-5 pages, but he has already read about 30 of the chapters in the last few weeks! We asked him "do you believe in prophets?" and he said that he still doesn't believe. Then we asked if he believed in the Book of Mormon and that Joseph Smith translated the Book through the power of God. He said, "Yes, when I read it I can feel that is true." We than told him that he believes in prophets. He said "Whoa, I do believe in prophets! I guess I never thought about it like that!"

We had another lesson with a girl who is friends with a member. We asked if she believed these things are true. She got the biggest smile on her face and said that she believes the things we are teaching her are true! Whenever we teach her something she always says "QUE LINDA!" Which means, "how beautiful!". The gospel and truth of the gospel truly is beautiful!

We had lots of other lessons and it was a good week! On Sunday it was the Primary program, where all the children in the ward sat on the stand and sang, read scriptures and gave short talks. Todo mundo chorou. The spirit was so strong that basically everyone cried. It is amazing to see how strong the spirits are of children. We should all be humble like the little children. When Christ visited the people he said that the children said wonderful things. This past Sunday the children said wonderful things.
