Family! Happy 2014!! wow, time just goes so fast. So this year I have a new goal and I have already started it which is........dun dun dun... To learn Portuguese! It is a really neat language and is very easy if you already know spanish so I bought some books and well see how it goes!
So this week was one of the most amazing weeks ever!!!!! A couple weeks ago we were teaching Maria in a park as she told us that her husband was very controlling and a drunk and he would never change.(This was after he had already rejected us and told us to leave)...Then the Lord showed his hand and gave us a miracle....More than once we have somehow entered their house, and knelt down with the whole family while the father gave a prayer, AND they came to church as a family this sunday!!! Wow....what a blessing, she said so many times---"He will never change ive tried so many times" " If you can get him to come to your church I will never leave your religion" haha and HE CAME!! and Maria accepted a baptismal date for the 19th on January:) My dear family and friends.....Miracles DO happen. We also had another family come to church and attend a baptism and the mom cried (Good sign) :)
I am excited to be a missionary and am happy to be here, its so dang hard but it is really an experience that has and is changing me. there are just too many blessings.
I love you all!!
