You guys never fail to amaze me - holy moley Ben congrats on the Geomety ACTM! & Blake on your Eagle. That´s a lot of merit badges in the picture, nossa. I can´t imagine, Brooks and Braxton,how tall you must be by now probably slam dunking - winning 3 basketball games on the buzzer. That was neat to hear too that Dad is in the stake presidency. That must have been unforgettable to be interviewed by an Elder of the Seventy.
Bryce it made me happy too to hear all´s hunky dory in Provo. :)
A Seventy will come here to Teresina as well this Friday for a mission conference. This week was bom demais. I saw Elder Engle for the first time in a year and a half! He is a good friend from the Provo MTC. I found out at zone meeting that he´s my zone leader. It was so good to see hm again.
It´s also been a lot of fun living with Elder Avila. We transfered here together from Sobral - we lived in the same home there as well.
Please continue to pray for Kyle, Pablo, Sister Tippetts, Beverly, Cleodimar, and Luan.
I continue to be amazed at the openness and willingness of the Brazilian people to hear about the Gospel though I should expect that in God´s City. The majority of people we´re teaching found us, em vez of us having to find them. The work´s hastening! - Alma 34:32.
I like how the 1st Presidency phrases the way I feel about my mission
"There is no more compelling work than this, nor any which brings greater satisfaction."
Invite everyone to learn how to access The Atonement and you will feel the Atonement more powerfully in your life. It can be natural to share the Gospel. There´s so much joy in this work. If I´ve said so far tht evry area is my favorite, Codó is my favorit-est.
Thank you for the prayers and emails,
Love each of you!
