It was fun to hear about your holiday. Tell the Brooksby´s hi for me! I hope you all enjoyed conference. Conference is bigger than the superbowl on the mission and the Saints won. Thank you Mom for sending off the package. I have been missing Grandma Sylvia´s vitamin C´s. :) That´s exciting about Bryce coming down to Arkansas! Tim Price will enjoy working with him. Tell the Price´s hi for me too.
This week was very rewarding. The miracles too continue to pour. I feel like God is testing me to see how much I´ll remember him even in the good times. I´ve learned, above about every thing else here in Brazil, to be grateful. Tuesday we went up to Teresina for zone meeting and stayed in the staff house. Missionaries call the staff house heaven because it´s like the MTC free agency or premortal life - where all missionaries go before being assigned an area. It´s also called heaven becuse the shower there has a hot water heater and is next door to a Subway. It was beyond words good to have a footlong for lunch and pizza at night! I felt like we had already been exalted and were enjoying eternal life. (which is actually true according to that talk Dad sent:).
Then to watch general conference was like beans on the rice. The talk about Captain Moroni in priesthood session reminded me of Daddio. I know he liked that talk. Elder Holland´s talk was very good as well and my favorite.
The miracle that happened this week was that an investigator we stopped visiting came to church! He decided he changed his mind and really did want to be baptized. He had also been sober for a week which was a goal we had set with him. I know that the atonement works miracles. We all desperately need a Savior. I am very grateful to know Who can make my weaknesses strengths. and Who can make my sins as white as snow.
