32nd Week Out, 12th week in Juazeiro, Fortaleza

Dear family and friends;

Not much to report this week.  Some of the world mission rules have changes and my mission doesn't even have to use suits anymore so I decided to give mine to my recent convert Thiago for his 18th birthday.  

Sunday Thiago received the Melchizedek priesthood.  That night we has a baptism for Jouvelina Maria Carvalhas De Freitas.  She asked me to baptise her and it was hard because she was scared of the water.  She is such a strong woman.  She has one girl and four boys.  One of them has depression and we have been crucial friends in his life.  We have been teaching her for a couple weeks.  It's amazing to see people, who at first you go by and start teaching them about gospel principles, but once they pray about our message and receive a answer, they truly have a desire to know more and share it with others. 

Brothers and Sisters, anyone can know that this church is the true church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints here on the face of the earth.   All you have to do is pray and ask Heavenly Father.   You don't go and research on the Internet because who can lie?  All of us?  We are all human?  But who cannot lie?  Heavenly Father.  If you don't ask you will NOT receive an answer.  I know this is true because I have gotten down on my knees and prayed and received an overwhelming feeling.  This feeling is the Holy Ghost I talk about nearly every letter.  It's better than any feeling in the world, 40 times stronger than any drug.  I love this feeling that I cherish every day. 
"If our lives and our faith are centered on Jesus Christ and his restored gospel, nothing can ever go permanently wrong."  On the other hand, if our lives are not centered on the Savior and his teachings, no other success can ever be permanently right"

I love you all and thank you for all your love and support.

Impressions of Juazeiro Brasil

  1. It's loud here!  There's always some kid screaming, a crying child, someone pounding something, music blasting, a motorcycle... forget your peace and quietness.
  2. They have a drink here by the name of Guarana Jesus!

(Note mail in Brazil is regulated as you might have heard, packages and even letters have a high chance of being opened if you do not cover the letter or package in pictures of Jesus and Catholic Mary. Shipping takes about a month time sometimes longer.
