Merry Christmas!

Hello everyone!!! I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I hope everyone was with their family driking hot chocolate remembering Christ´s birth! 
This week was sooo GREAT! It was definitely a week that I won´t forget or a Christmas I won´t forget! On Tuesday we traveled to Juiz de Fora for a mission Christmas Conference! It was soo great! ( I´m actually in Juiz de Fora right now for splits with the STL´s and tomorrow we have Zone Conference) Juiz de fora it about two and a half hours away from Ubá not that far! We take a lovely bus!(; It was soo great to see everyone from the mission even though I hardly don´t know anyone! It was fun! We heard a lot of different speakers! I loved a certain speaker that talk a lot abou Recuing the members based of a talk that Thomas S Monson gave. It got me thinking of the role we as missionaries have in re-activating, but what a HUGE rule members also have maybe even more bigger than we as missionaries. I loved it! Every recent convert needs a calling, a friend in the gospel and to be nourished by the good word.
This week we saw so many miracles! One being talking with out families! I love my family and it was soo weird and strange and great! i felt like I never left! It felt like I was in the same room as them! I didn´t cry! and that was a big miracle! I know my purpose here on the mission and I know that this time is SHORT and preciouse!
I love this family and I hpe to tell you more about them next week! I know that this family was prepared by The Lord to receive the gospel! I know that it was nothing that I said or my companion said, but the spirit of God that touched them. They are serioulsy so strong and I can´t wait to see them grow in the gospel! Their baptism was perfect!(:
I hope that with the new year we can all reflect on what we can do better this year and our goals on what we would like to change! I love the counsel of President Dieter F Uchtdorf that the best time to plan a tree was 20 years ago! Change starts now! Change starts within us and our willingness to grow and  become the Sons and Daughters we are meant to be! I hope this eyar we can choose to change something or a habit we want to chang or gain!  I know God is our father and he loves us! He will help us reach our full potential and our goals! I know and I testify of that!! Have a great week everyone! Thank you for the prayers and love!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying winter vacation and hot chocolate! I was talking to my companion how I NEVER thought that I would be spending Christmas in 104 degree weather with sweat dripping out of every inch of my body. Now that I painted that nice image..haha Just kidding.Seriously though I rather be in this weather than in Idaho right now!(:
I wanted to share a special message or thought that I´ve been thiking about lately,especially with it being Christmas. This week has been a good week! It was full of a lot of events that lead to growth and learning. We have an investigator name Nivea! She´s soo great! She´s about 43 and has 3 kids.She´sbeen invistigating the chutch for 3 months and is waiting to get married and then baptized in January! One of Her kids is 15 and his name is Vitor. He has been giving her a hard time and feels like he´s getting worse and worse. She feeds us regurlarly like a MEMBER every Friday and we are noticing that she is getting depressed. So this morning I decided to study and this week about Christ and the Hope he gives us. In Preach my gospelit says Hope is a lasting belief that something good is going to happen. Hope is that we have hope and know that We are children of our Heavenly Father and through Christ and his sacrifice we can be cleansed and start over. Hope is that we can hope for a better life. I´m so excited to share this with her! Because we may not control what happens around us, or our spouse or Children or anything, but we do control have control over us. We cannot be discourage by life´s trial or difficulties. We must face them with faith and HOPE. Like stated in the Book of Mormon with the HOPE of one day we will rest from all our afflictions..(ALma 40)
Everyone, I know Christ lives! That he was born over two mellenia ago! That he established his church with a Prophet, his 12 apostles and authority of God. I know that because Christ was born that we have HOPE for a better life and Christ can make more out of our lives and life that we can! I hope and pray that we can all pray this week to be a little more grateful for a loving Heavenly Father that sent his son for us.

I love you alll! Thank you for the prayers and emails! MERRRY CHRISTMAS!

HELLO EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!! How was everyones week? Is it snowing there yet? Everyone asks me about snow here, it´s great! AHH EVERYONE this week has been AMAZING!!!! AMAZING! My companion and I have seen so many miracles. This week we had the opportunity to do division with the Sister Training leaders and it was amazing! I was with Sister Dickerson! She is from Utah and is AMAZING! She´s been out a year and speaks amazingly. The sisters came down on Monday night and slept here until Tuesday. Sister Dickerson worked and planned together on Tuesday. We went to visit Claudia an investigator of ours that we are teaching and Sister Dickerson has taught her in the past. We read The Book of Mormon with her and taught her about the importance of reading and praying, also living the word of wisdom so we can be alert of the promptings that the Holy ghost is giving us! She excepted to try to quit smoking and drinking coffee and is on DATE!! She´soo great! My companion and Sister Dominguez went and taught another family that same day! They are so GREAT Their names are Lindomar, Zenir and Rafaela! They are so sweet and Zenir the wife is super excited about the church. She says she needs something to teach her family that is growing.They also have a teenage daughter that is 13 and is stuggling, ya know teenangers. They taught the restoration and excepted baptism!!!!!!! AH! They are seriously golden! On Wednesday we had family home evening with a not so less active family anymore! Their names are Debora e Ediclis and their two daughters! We taught about eternal families! Debora is soo great and she´s been a member for a little less than a year, when we got here we saw that she was in the less active list and called her and invited her to church and she came! She´s been coming with her daughters for 3 weeks!!!!!! and now we need to bring her husband along! They are such a great family! THURSDAY!! Was such a great day too! We worked to find new people to teach and try to find Jeslene, the lady i wrote about last week, we haven´t been able to talk to her, but we know everything is going to work out! We also have a family in the ward well a young couple actually their names are Aline and Andrew! Aline is brasileira and Andrew is American! They invited us over for dinner at their house to celebrate THANKSGIVING!!! Aline and Andrew met when she went to the USA to do a exchange student transfer, she met the church and Andrew and got married. They live in Brasil for now, but are going back to the USA in February! THEY ARE AWESOME.They cooked STUFFING FOR ME..it was definitely a tender mercy.. and Pumpkin pie. He said he brought a can of puree with him from the USA.haha.The brasilians were asking tons of wquestions about the types of things we do for thanksgiving. because it´s me and another elder that´s from Utah serving in the ward! It was great! On Friday we worked hard to invite EVERYONE to a baptism that the Elders had of TWO amazing womens! Their baptism was on SAtuday and all of us sang while an elder played the flute. So saturday night we met this lady sitting alone in a bench. We asked what she was doing there all alone and she said she was just being alone and sad.. My companion and I sat by her and asked her a few questions. Her name was Marlir, we taught her that God loves us and that when we are sad he can help us to get over whatever we are sad about. Christ knows how we feel and because he knows how we feel we can find comfort in knowing everything will be okay. We were in the middle of teaching ther restoration when.. ALL the lights in the street went out. It was pitch balck and My companion and I were like..we have to head home.. soe we invited Marlir to church and headed home. We were a little worried about her because she is tiny tiny! Sunday was AMAZING.. I love sundays! So Lindomar and his family went to church and they loved it!!! It was amazing! We were so happy the they did! Church is always the best day of the week and the most intense.. Making sure your investigators have an awesome spiritual experience! We were so happy that they were there and also Daniel! We were in the middle of sacrament when i noticed that MARLIR WAS SITTING BEHIND ME! The little lady that we had made a street contact with! AHH SHE STAYED FROM ALL THREE HOURS OF CHURCH and was soo great. My companion and I were so excited! When church was over we asked Marlir if we coiuld visit her and she said..No. We were both devistated and she said she knew were the church was and would come again. I know that there is a reason for that, and that we will she MArlir if it´s meant to be.. and we won´t try to stalk her. Because we really wanted too (sister provost you can delete that part of stalking her if you think it´s inappropriate haha)..Sunday night we taught TWO AMAZING women names Jaquelene and Taiz! They are soo speacial! They´ve came to church twice and were the elders investigators, but Jaquelene is going through a divorce and asked if WE could visit her (Sister power) They are SOO READY for baptism and are amazing people they´re on date for the 13th! along with Daniel and Lindomar´s family!
EVERYONE, I´ve seen so many tender mercies, every day! It´s amazing how Christ´s gospel can change someone. It´s amazing to see that in a new country and in a new language. My portuguese is coming along, i´m not fluent, but people can understand even if i can´t speak well enought, because the spirit testifies to them. Sunday night my companion taught me about charity when we were running home because it was pouring rain and she saw a women under a tree. We stopped and talked to her and said her husband was on his way. My companion gave her HER umbrella and I was like Wow. So I gave my companion mine and ran away..haha We were really close to home, but either way my companion is amazing. I love Brazil and the hills and the mountains that when I go up them I feel like im climbing mount Everest. Thank you for the prayers, I can feel them! I love you all! Have a great week! Pray for my investigators please, they need to feel your love too!!
Love love,
