devin to get those jobs, and for all of you! i dont know if you can send
video but you can try. but the pictures didnt even work so good luck
haha. yeah i think today was transfers, but im still here. i didnt hear
anything. only one missionary in our whole zone is being switched and
thats because he finished his mission haha so im still here with elder
carneiro. danielle and amanda are progressing for their baptism
sunday! Danielle is super excited. in her prayer the other day she asked
for strength and help to be able to fulfill the most important
commandment on sunday being baptized. it was really cool. i felt the
spirit real strong. she has changed so much in the last week its
amazing. the first days we saw her she was really down and like without
hope, but now shes always smiling and laughing with us and full of hope.
its really cool. and even her husband, who refuses to hear us, is
changing, we can see it even from afar. hes helping more with the kids
and hes at home more....the GOSPEL CHANGES LIVES!!! QUE BÊNÇÃO!!!! amo o
evangelho de Jesus Cristo (I love the gospel of Jesus Christ), and i know it can change all of us if we'll
let it. i pray that we can all near ourselves to the Lord through the
simple things so that we can see the big changes it makes in our lives!
love you all!!
