First things first- Happy Birthday today to Dad and Grandpa my two favorite guys! Thank you for your examples and the priesthood you hold for our famiy. I hope you both have a great day and enjoy the pie! I love you!
So yesterday was transfers and guess who did not receive a phone call??
Guess who is super excited to have another transfer in Monte Vermelho??
We love this area, and we love the members and the people and are so pumped to have atleast six more weeks here. Also it means we will spend our 7th, 8th, 9th month marks, christmas, new years, my birthday, and valentines together. woo hoo lots of holidays with a chilean!
On Saturday Ailton got baptised! For lack of a better word, Ailton is a BOSS! His girlfriend Ro who is in the picture was baptised like 6 months ago. In December Ro told us he wanted to start talking to the sisters after the holiday because he was really busy. So on Jan. 1st we taught him and it was just great from there on out! He just said so many times- This year I am going to change my life. And he knew the gospel and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the way he was going to make the changes he needed to. We taught him the commandments and the lessons and in a total of 3 weeks he was baptized. We just couldn´t believe how ready, how humble (and super smart he understands everything) Ailton was. The baptism went super smooth and he bore a sweet, simple testimony after. They are such a cute little family and we are hoping they will marry sometime soon this year! Oh man I love these people.
Basically just this- we are working hard here and the Lord is working even harder to help His children receive salvation. This work is so stinking amazing. On huge thing I have learned is that obedience to the little things is what makes the biggest difference. The people that progress and gain real testimonies are the ones who pray, read and go to church! I am so grateful for these little things that make such big difference in our lives.
I love you guys so much! Thank you for all the prayers and support, they are making a difference! Until next week!
Com meu amor,
