Well, my week was pretty sweet. A little bit slow because my companion is trunky and goes him in a month, but it was still a sweet week.
Sowas Zone Meeting. We had a cool training on reactivating the members who have potential to serve in the priesthood. It's called the Elders in Perspective program, and we're using 50% of our time doing this. Apparently, this Stake is the worst stake in all of Brazil. The frequency of the entire stake is less than the frequency of our ward back home (It's about 250-275 people). So we have some work to do.
We went a painted a fence for an inactive family this week. It was sort of cool, but then we learned that this family left the church to build their own church. So I took a snapshot of their church in construction. It's super weird. After having received a testimony of the truth, and serving in the church for many years, why would anybody leave? It's incredible how many people leave the true Church of Jesus Christ for simple things. This guy just wanted more money, so he's building a church. Weird.
Well this was my week! I am so grateful that I can be here to help so many people come closer to Christ. Christ really loves us, and if you want to feel that love, just read about Him! The scriptures are His words, and when we read them, we feel the Spirit, which is how we feel his love. In Moroni, we learn that "perfect love casteth out all fear". When we feel the Savior's love, all of our fears, all of our worries, will be cast out. But how can we get this perfect love? Verses 25-26 in the same chapter give you a little formula that you can apply to receive this perfect love of Christ. Go and read it, ponder on it, and then apply it to your life.
I love you all so much and I know this Church is true!
Rock on n' stuff,
