I´m a little nervouse as I write this email! TRANSFERS are today! The elders haven´t called us yet, but I just got an email that said I was going to be transfered. I don´t know yet, but my heart is RIPPED TO PIECES. I don´t know what´s going to happen, but I know this is a trial of faith to see if I will be willing to go where he wants me to go. I love that hymn because it pretty much applies to everythig in life. I´ll except the calling you give me in..primary, relief society ..etc etc
I love Volta Redonda and I´m grateful for my mission..I know this is not the end, I know that Christ lives and this is his gospel and no matter what happens He is in charge.
The misson president hasn´t said anythig about my extension. but the secretary elders called me this week asked what airport I wanted to fly in-_-...He told other sisters that the area of seventy is letting anyone extend. Waahhhh! I love the Lord´s mission.
This week was soo full of miracles and soo much fun! We´ve been teaching tons of less actives and finding tons of part member families! This week we found Flavia she is 34-35 she´s from Argentina and a RM. A lot of trials happened in her life that made slowly moved her away from the gospel. Yesterday she went to church for the first TIME!!!!!!!!! It was a miracle. She also has a son that is EIGHT th at is ready for baptism! (: We are so excited to help her, she also has a boyfriend that is a nonmeber! Goals to get married, YES!
We also are teaching spanish and english classes every tuesday and this week we had a good turn out of investigators, one of them actually came to church y esterday! Lacir, he speaks very vey good. He doesn´t live in our area so we are not teaching him, but he is still a child of God and we are loving teaching! The ward is also getting ready for a MEXICAN FIESTA..They asked me tons of opinions and layouts, decorations. I loved it so much. I love this ward soo much.
We have tons of return missionaries in this ward and I love it! They are always willing to go out with us and it´s amazing to learn from them and their teaching styles. I´m grateful for the sprirt that gives us the opportunity to teach in a way our investigators can understand. For example we found an awesome y oung man named Cosme that had gone to church five times but was never baptized because He is really busy..we went out with Jardelir an RM from TErezina that served in São Paulo. WE got the opportunity to find out he is really into geography and science an d doesn´t know if th ebible or the book of mormon is the word of God. My companion and I didn´t really know muc about some of his arguments in physicology or geography he stated, but Jardelir before joining the church research tons of that and was able to BARE a solemn testimony that Christ lived, that the bible is the w ord of God and as we try to search the four corners of this earth we will never know the truth if we don´t exercise our faith Christ.
WE are also teaching many people that love the church and just need that EXTRA FAITH..to take that step into the waters of baptism. We´ve been praying to recieve revelation on how to help them. There is a women name Solange as well that we have been teaching and I LOVE HER! She has been coming to church for 3 months and we just started teaching her 3 weeks ago because of area divisions..she technacally belongs to another ward, but she doesn´t feel comfertable in the other ward etc..so we started teaching her and loves the church. WE are excited to see all our investigators progress and we hope that we can guide them to the path that has brought us the most happiness!
