7/4/2016: Week 42 - Service Project and Elect Family

Minha querida família e meus amigos maravilhosos,

Happy 4th of July! This week Sister M and I have been working with a family that is elect. They have been completely prepared to hear our messages. W and B are the parents, and they have three kids named T, P, and I. The two daughters have come to church two weeks in a row, and they love it. One has been going to mutual, and the other is taking piano classes at the church. 

The entire family has received witnesses that this is the church of Jesus Christ. Sister M actually made a contact with the two girls one day about a month ago and she was unable to find their home. However, last week (when we found them), we were eating lunch in one member's house and we ran into them again, and found out where they lived. It was nothing short of a miracle. W said that God had sent us to her home and that it was no coincidence that we found them. B also said that we were the response to a prayer he had been saying for over a month.

This week we invited them to be baptized, and they all accepted, except the father, who said he wanted to learn more first. But later, he was talking to his wife, and asked if she really was going to be baptized. She responded, "No, we are going to be baptized." She has a great testimony of the gospel and is completely willing to change her life to follow God.

The only problem as of now is the fact that they need to get married, but I will update you all on what is going on with that.

We also had the opportunity to do a service project in Campinas for the people who were affected by the tornado that passed through there. We divided a bunch of clothes, and even the mission president was there. 

Here's to another great week!
