Sounds like you all had a good week! Small world about the contractor serving in Jeffrey´s mission. Our ward mission leader Eufrasio also served in Recife but it was quite a while ago.
Planted a seed January 10, 2012
So as far as our week goes…. it was pretty uneventful. Lots of people are still traveling. This week a young woman in the ward Amanda came out teaching with us for a few days. It was so fun to have her with us! She’s seriously so excited about talking to everyone. I loved watching her start contacts and after every one of them when we walked away “well… at least we planted a seed!” she’ll make a great sister in 4 years. She reminds me a lot of Maxiny from Jaçanã. We were contacting some former investigators from the area book this week and it was interesting to see everyone’s reaction. Some were definitely not ready to have the missionaries come back and others were a little bit more open. One woman Katia we were talking to said she really liked the elders but never felt that the church was right. “Did you read the Book of Mormon? Did you pray?” “Well, no…” hmmm… there in lies your problem my friend :) There’s a reason why we invite everyone to do that! It’s so simple and yet so many people fail to do the little things that will help them know it´s true. Alma 37:6-7 is sooooo true!
I hope you all have a great week! Know that I love you :) Thanks for the support!!
