Feliz Dia das Mães! Amo a minha Mamãe! Ela é tudo para mim. felicidades e saudades 🙂
Alright well this week was super great! We have been talking to everyone and our teaching pool is changing every day. We have been seeing a lot of blessings as the Lord has put people in our path so that we can contact them, teach them, and invite them to come unto Christ.
So there is a new craze here in Brazil, the 2014 Fifa world cup in Brazil has launched the official sticker album, and I heard about it yesterday, it has been going on for over a month. That makes it clear that we have no idea what is happening back in the states and we don’t even know what is going on here in Brazil. That is a good thing because we are in the world but aren’t of it!
In a month the Fifa World Cup is going to start and that is going to be crazy! I wish the missionaries in the missions in Brazil good luck during the cup. Football is the only thing that matters here in this country. All of the members and investigators ask us who we are going to cheer for in the cup. My answer is usually “I am cheering for the States until they get knocked out and then I am cheering for the Brazil!”
I am so happy to be a missionary. This chance that I have to share the gospel is amazing. I have learned that when we have faith and ask the Lord to place people in our way so that we can share with them the Gospel of Jesus Christ, he answers our prayers. We contacted a man who finished reading the whole Book of Mormon a little over a month ago. We contacted a man whose wife had died a little over 3 months ago and got to teach him about the plan of salvation. We contacted a family who had been studying about the church for months and are desirous to read and pray to know if the Book of Mormon is true.
The Lord prepares people to receive His glory, Alma Chapter 13 verse 24 Says:
“For behold, angels are declaring it unto many at this time in our land; and this is for the purpose of preparing the hearts of the children of men to receive his word at the time of his coming in his glory.”
I know that that is a promise from the Lord. He sends his angels to prepare them, and then he depends on us who know Him and His glory to invite them to come unto Christ.
His invite is the same that Moroni echoed over a thousand years ago:
“…come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.”
A fé é tudo!
