Letter from 10/20/14

So, this week was kinda stressful. Everything went PERFECTLY until Friday. Igor, who was supposed to get married, ran away on the day of the wedding. We followed up the entire week..and he was excited...but it just didn´t go how it was supposed to. Antonio and Rodrigo also decided at the last minute that they weren't ready for baptism...but that they´d continue going to church to learn more. So...that was a blessing. They recognize the importance of the commitment and want to learn. We had an old investigator come to church this week, and he´s feeling a lot better about baptism, and we´re working for his baptism this Saturday.

I know that everything has a time and a place! I feel the Lord in the work! When all of our appointments fall through, the Lord provides us with someone who´s waiting to here. I know He loves us, and just expects us to be obedient and try our best. I´m thankful for all of the blessings that Heavenly Father gives us and all that He has waiting for us. I´m excited to be here and try to prove to Him that I love him through obedience. I love this work!!

Love you all, have a fantastic week!

Also, there´s this huge thing happening....círio...where all of the catholics adore mary and other saints. i learned that there is SO much faith in the world...but focused on the WRONG THING. people walked from castanhal to belem holding a cord and walked with the saint...and then they have the guts to say they don´t worship idols:?!?!? WHEN, tell me, do catholics have a giant party for Jesus?:! NEVERRRR. ugh. so much faith focused on the wrong thiiing. oh well. love you guys! bye!
