Oi familia!


Oi familia!

Good to hear all is well.  Life is good here tambĂ©m - today we had a zone p-day and played volleyball! etc.  So many miracles happen every day.  With the rule of 40 minutes, I can usually either send pictures and write a short message or a couple pictures and a longer message.  This week I´ll send lots of pictures.  Thanks for all your emails and all you do from home to help those here in Brazil.  I can´t say enough about how loving the people are here.  Isabel, Barbiliana, Carlo, Luis, and Gustava are in need of lots of prayers - they are trying to come back to church or will soon be baptized!  

Love you all,

Elder Young

& A quote from Elder Bednar:

Absolute truth exists in world that increasingly disdains and dismissesabsolutes. In future day, “every knee [shall] bow” and “every tongue[shall] confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father(Philippians 2:10–11). Jesus the Christ absolutely is the Only Begotten Sonof the Eternal Father. As members of His Church, we witness He lives andHis Church has been restored in its fulness in these latter days.
The invitations we extend to you to learn about and test our messagegrow out of the positive effects the gospel of Jesus Christ has had in ourlives. Sometimes we may be awkward or abrupt or even relentless in ourattempts. Our simple desire is to share with you the truths that are ofgreatest worth to us.
As one of the Lord’s Apostles, and with all of the energy of my soul, bearwitness of His divinity and reality. And invite you to “come and see”(John 1:39), in the sacred name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
