This week was amazing!
So much happened!
So. This week we had the best zone meeting. EVER. We got the whole Algarve zone pumped up and ready to work and ready to help make this district a STAKE! We worked super hard and the spirit really touched all of those missionaries. We focused a lot on working with members, reactivation, and working with the leadership in our branches. These are the things that are going to contribute real growth to our district here, and we all felt really strongly that the Algarve WILL be a stake!
One funny thing we did during the meeting to help out the missionaries with not getting bored is that we made milkshakes for them! We randomly brought them out after doing a treinamento, and they all got super excited and happy!
Me and Sister McChesney have been running every single morning and working really hard to be fit and healthy! The running was really hard at first, but after 2 weeks, i´m feeling way better and i´m kinda starting to like it... :)
This week has been full of miracles! We have seen so many! We have talked to so many people this week and have felt so quickly the love that God has for them, it´s incredible. A little hard to describe, but it´s really amazing. You can see the potential that person has to be so happy, especially when they´re sad. It makes me wanna talk to even more people. We get a lot of rejections, but when we help someone come closer to Christ in that moment, then it makes the rejection worth it.
We have been working so much with our members this week! We saw an amazing miracle. Remember when I said we went to a funeral a few weeks ago? Well, me and Sister were walking down the street, when I felt all of a sudden to go down a certain street. We went down it, and almost immediately, a woman opened her door and said, "I knew it! It´s the sisters!" It ended up being the widow of the man who had passed away (she´s a member´s mom). We ended up entering her house and having a powerful lesson with her. We explained the Plan of Salvation and explained the Temple. It made me so grateful for the knowledge we have of these things.
Hope everything turns out amazing for everyone this week! Never forget how much the Lord loves you!
