|Sister Johnson and Sister Moore with Brazilian Kittens|
No baptisms but here´s some kittens!!
"Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith." Elder Uchtdorf That quote was the same one me and my companion decided was the quote of the conference. I don´t know what it is, but I can see Elder Scott being the next prophet. I just feel a lot of love in his voice when he speaks. Conference just makes me realize how important families are in the plan of salvation and how the world cannot change eternal truths. It is so evident here in Brasil where almost every home doesn´t has a father figure or people are just living together. Marriage is just not valued here because it is expensive.
One of the speakers said something along the lines of ``how would you feel if someone made a committment every week and never kept it?" and I just started laughing because that is my life every day. We are a covenant making people and that is where our blessings come from. We have to hold up our part and LIVE our beliefs.
I´m making it a life goal to make my kids look forward to conference like Christmas. As a missionary it really is like Christmas. Two whole days of sitting down and four opportunities to have people in church. We had Dagna at the first session. She is one of my favorites but she´s progressing slowly because she´s actually sane. She has a really cute 6-year-old son who pays attention to every meeting and is really smart. That really is rare.. Brasilian children are generally not well behaved. You can hear it from outside the schools. Another one of our investigators does nothing but stay home all day with three awful grandchildren, like I´m not going to lie, they are so annoying. They don´t wear clothes and they just scream in all our lessons and I feel so bad for their poor Grandma. Another reason the traditional family is so important. Those parents are never there.
I love you and am praying for Longmont! Keep being good missionaries! You are doing exactly what all members should be doing and it´s so awesome!!!
