famílias eternas & frogs

Okay, first I’m going to apologize if my last emails haven't been making a lot of sense. I get really nervous with the one hour of email time and then I tend to write some nonsense...and it probably will continue...oops.

 Anyway, this week was a little odd for us because 1) sister Cunha wasn't feeling good 2) it rained like craaaazy on Wednesday! Like we are talking Second Coming kind of rain in Mossoró of all places! So our work was a little bit hindered this week, but our faith wasn't!!!! We have been teaching Francisco who is the grandfather of our recent convert Myllenna and he is amazing. We had a little worry with him this week because he said he didn't like church on Sunday because it was hard to understand what was going on, but when we went to talk with him with Myllenna she bore the sweetest testimony of how even though going to church for her was scary at first, she knew it was right and she kept going. I'm still amazed every day at how quickly the people we teach gain testimonies. Myllenna, who when we first were teaching her DID NOT want to offer the prayer because she was always so nervous, but now after bearing her testimony for her grandfather she offered one of the sweetest prayers to end our lesson. I'll admit, I did start to tear up a little bit, Francisco and Myllenna definitely did tear up a little too. And he's ready to keep going:) He wasn't baptised yesterday because he was feeling sick, but definitely next week. And our other investigator Acasiano, who we haven't been able to contact all week, came to church by himself!! Ahh MILAGRES! 

 Like always, I love you all so much and I want you all to know that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Nothing in this world will ever bring more happiness and joy to our lives than the knowledge that He Lives and is always there for each one of us. I'm eternally grateful for this.

 p.s. rain means frogs EVERYWHERE. so. many. frogs. Also, in response to your questions the sideways thumbs up is our hand sign for baptism!! BATISMO!!
