One More Week with my Beloved Companion!

Guys. It´s the last week of the transfer and the last week of Sister Guimarães´ mission. These last 4 months with her have been crazy and ridiculously fun. I´ve learned so much from her and we have been so blessed! It really gives me a testimony that God is in control and puts the people we need into our lives!

This week was very very good! So many AMAZING people that we were able to start teaching! I think one of my favorite people that we were able to meet this week was a young woman named Catarina! She has two friends who are members of the church and invited her to learn more. We were able to teach her together with her friends at the temple-- I don´t think there exists a better place to teach someone than the temple! The Spirit was SO strong during the lesson and you could see It really working within her. She was amazed to know that today we have a living prophet and asked so many questions about that! At the end of the lesson, she offered the closing prayer and started to cry as she thanked Heavenly Father for these two friends that He had placed into her life. It really showed me how just loving someone and being a good friend can make such a big impact in someone´s life and help them to accept the Gospel! 

This week we also had our last interviews with President and Sister Bigelow before they return home and we receive our new mission President.... that part was pretty sad. Haha

But goodness, this week I am so grateful for the work that the members do! We have so many good and interested people to teach and help prepare to be baptized all because of members who had the courage and faith to invite their friends to hear the message of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ! 

Amo vocês!!
