Week 65 - Camaragibe

Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you for the pictures!!! Congrats on your track meets Rae and Cart! I didn’t know Carter was doing track. What events does he run?

This was the happiest week of my mission. The wedding happened on Saturday and it was perfect. The ward is so great and everyone did a little and it turned out super nice. Someone make a big cake, someone made other refreshments, Bishop and his wife decorated everything, someone made her a bocque (sp?), the relief society president found a dress for her and did her hair and makeup. Everyone helped! They weren’t expecting anything big and it was simple, but beautiful. They were both super grateful. I have lots of pictures to send. They were baptized Sunday before church and it was even more special. They both agreed that the baptism was the best part of the weekend. And then they were confirmed during church and after he received the priesthood. Big weekend for them!! The best part was last night when we went there to visit them. We entered their house and there was a different feeling there! I felt so much peace sitting there on their couch as they told us about how happy they are. They are already looking forward to going to the temple in a year and being sealed as a family. He said the prayer before we left and I felt so so so happy that we both walked home crying haha. They are completely different from when we first met them. The Gospel truly changes lives. This Saturday the Dad will baptize R and E.

Other things that happend this week. We've been teaching M's mom for about 3 weeks now, and she came to church yesterday!! She loved church yesterday. She is super firm in her church, but M is the best missionary for her and has been helping a lot. We have family home evening with them tonight!  Also a few members brought friends to church yesterday and introduced them to us. So this week we already have a few more new people to teach. Missionary work is so much better when the members are involved!

I have been learning a lot this week about the power of prayer. I think Heavenly Father is trying to teach me to rely more on Him. I have learned how a simple prayer can completely change my attitude and perspective on things. It’s great!

I am so happy to be here. It is the best! I hope you all have a great week! Love you!
