Eu gostei muito os fotos do casamento de Bryce. Hope Dad had a good birthday. They even had fireworks here to celebrate. I enjoyed too Blake´s poem for Terra.
This week was good. It´s a lot of fun being companions with Elder de Jesus. He makes protein shakes for everyone every night. Then we read a chapter in the Book of Mormon. :) All I lack is a rocking chair.
The past couple weeks have been full of activities for the holidays. They don´t have the tradition of caroling in Brazil, but we decided to go caroling anyway and shared the Christmas story Luke 2. I´ve been blessed with a lot of good singers as companions, which makes lessons a lot of fun. We usually start and end with a hymn.
This week we learned the power of a simple invitation. On the way to church yesterday we said as we always do to our neighbor, "Vamos pra Igreja esta Domingo irmão?" (Are you coming to church with us this Sunday?) And he went! He loved it & wants to be baptized in two weeks.
I still remember Mom´s example inviting our neighbors to church on the way Sunday morning. Often others have a strong desire to learn and just need an invitation. "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." - Mosias 2:17
