This week was AMAZING! Literally, blessings were just raining down on us like you would not believe! Today marks my 8 month anniversary on the mission! It took a bit, but I love this work so much! I know for certain that what i´m doing in portugal is the Lord´s work, and He is hastening it, that is why i´m so happy to be able to be a part of it!
The most amazing miracle this week was Wasina´s baptism! He is amazing, and he is willing to really follow Christ and do His will in this life! Every lesson we had with him was so spiritual, and after the baptism he was so happy and smiling and we could just tell that he felt the spirit testify the truth of these things to him. I know that baptism really is just the beginning. I know that when we make these covenants with the Lord, He will bless us in ways that we never even imagined. And the lord really is willing to help us get there. He loves us all individually and is ready to help us when we need it. All we have to do is ask.
Lots of people say that when you serve a mission, it has eternal consequences. And it´s true! Eternal consequences not just for your family, but also for the families (and future families) of the people you help come closer to Christ. Because that is my purpose, and i´m not perfect, but the Lord is, and this is His work. It truly is astounding how happy someone can be as an instrument in the hands of the Lord. And He really lets us know in tiny little things that this is His work and that He is happy with what we are doing!
We had so many other miracles this week. Sister McCall got the flu all of a sudden, so we had to stay in for a while, but we totally made up for it when we went out to work, because it felt like the Lord was just dropping people into our path. It. was. a week of miracles. SO MANY MIRACLES!
We also discovered so parts of our area we never explored before and it was very... hilly. We met lots of people and worked with them and they all said we could come back, so we will. We met this 90 year old woman who lives at the tippy top of a REALLY steep hill who has a ton of orange trees and told us we could pick some.
I love all of you and hope everything is going good! EMAIL ME PLEASEEEEE.
