Well, the challenges here in the Conjunto Ceará 3 ward are many and varied, but miracles are happening frequently!!! We´re beginning to find people who actually want to learn who have never heard from the missionaries before! Élder Muniz and I are working super hard every day and the Lord is rewarding our patience, diligence, and faith. This week we´re hoping for big numbers in sacrament meeting. It´s going to be awesome!
A few weeks ago we ran into a guy named Cândido. He has a small family and is catholic. We were talking with him the other day and he said, "Prayer and bible study are always important things for me, but I´m not a huge fan of church. It seems like everyone is arguing with everyone and I don´t know which one is right." Wow. Golden. It´s so wonderful to know that our loving Heavenly Father has restored the Church of Jesus Christ to the earth. It´s such a blessing to be a missionary and a representative of Jesus Christ and His restored gospel.
We had an awesome activity this weekend. We organized a talent show with the ward and we had a number of stakes that participated! The chapel is a ways away because ours is under construction, so we haven´t had an activity in a while. But we decided that it was time to have one and the ward loved it! We had a party and it was good to just have some fun. Now the ward is more excited than ever and we´re going to see more and more miracles as the work of the Lord progresses in the ward!
Sei que esta é a obra do Senhor. Ele está me dirigindo todo dia e sou tão grato pela oportunidade para servi-Lo.
