Dear Family & Friends,
So the first thing I need to say is that this morning, my mission, Fortaleza East, and the Fortaleza mission, got to hear the Apostle Neil L. Andersen speak! He speaks Portuguese too, so that was pretty cool. Every missionary from both missions got to shake his hand, and I was the first one in hand shaking line! Elder Andersen said something to me that I'll never forget............."Nice to meet you."
The training that he gave us was great. He focused on how we need to help people to understand Christ´s Atonement for our sins, and that we need to really understand it and apply in our lives as well, in order to teach it. There was a lot more obviously, but that's was the main message.
So as far as the work went this week, it was a little rough. We had a hard time meeting new people to teach. We were supposed to have 4 baptisms, but the water from the chapel ran out, so we couldn't fill up the font! That was a little frustrating, but the baptisms will happen for sure next week. They will be Gilliane and her three kids, Eudes, Isabel, and Raiane (hi-on-ee). They are an awesome family, and we have loved teaching them!
That's about all I got for this week. Have a great one!
