Faltam Duas Semanas

Hey how is everyone doing, I hope you are all doing well so last week I didn’t get a chance to update. For our P-day we went and played volleyball and we were beat so we didn’t even get into the office to send e-mails, but I have had a great two weeks.

As I said last P-day we played some Volleyball which went well and we had a great end to our week. Elder Silva and I did things a bit different which turned out well. Here in the office we generally get in at 9:00 or 10:00 and leave at 6:00 or 7:00 and go to work. We did things the opposite working in the morning for a few days giving us a great opportunity to teach a few of our investigators. We were able to teach some great lessons where we felt the spirit so strong. The weekend also went well, the Maceio Stake Conference was held. We were pleasured to have the visit of two seventies including Elder Soares the area president. It went well and they called a new Stake President.

But our work has been going well we are super excited for families that we helped reactivate here in the ward. Luciano the father was just called as a counselor/assistant in the high priest group. His wife also just received a call as a counselor in the Relief Society. And their son Vinicios who we helped baptize couldn’t be more excited to soon get the aerobic priesthood and go on his mission.

But I cannot believe that I only have two weeks left so pretty much I am getting nervous but I am also excited. An Elder who will go home with me asked Elder Soares while he was here what he would tell us as missionaries who are finishing their mission. He told us just work to the End and the Lord will do his part. Not just on your mission but in life. If you don’t work till the end you have no promise but if we work till the end the Lord will richly bless us. So pretty much were are pretty sure we are going to work till the end because we definitely want to be blessed. I am nearing the completion of the D&C countdown (reading the last section to the first) and I have been enjoying all of the sections on missionary work and I am sad at the same time that soon it will not be a missionary anymore.

But I love all of you and I keep you in my prayers and hope to see you soon but not too soon!
