Thank you for all of the birthday wishes!! This week was full of birthdays!! Sister Dorgan had her birthday on Friday and mine on Sunday! I had a great birthday, Sister Dorgan made orange rolls MMMMMmmmmm.... So good! Haha and I was sung to in Portuguese at least 7 times. I think I finally have the birthday song memorized ;)
This week was awesome!! Our investigator Simão was baptized on Saturday! He´s 13 years old and a funny kid. We got to the baptism and one of the first things he said was ok, where is the pool? He´s awesome, he´s got a strong testimony. He even got up in sacrament meeting and bore his testimony yesterday!
The young mens leader in our ward is awesome, he´s doing so much missionary work! He brought 6 investigators to Simão´s baptism and he treats them all like their father. And what´s amazing is that the young mens leader is a recent convert himself! After the baptism one of the boys leaned over to us and asked if he´d have to wait a long time to be baptized. Member missionary work works miracles!
One thing that I´ve come to realize is that it really doesn´t matter who you were or what you did but who you are becoming. The grace and mercy of our Savior is real. He has already suffered for all. Now it´s our choice to accept the amazing opportunity we have to get up and try again.
Por meio de nosso Salvador Jesus Cristo nos realmente podemos tornar pessoas differente, melhor, e mais como ele. Eu estou tão grato por esta experiencia! Eu amo ao povo, minha companheira, e o Senhor.
Thank you for all the support!
