I love you!!!!
My week has been interesting...it was a hard one for sure! i learned sooo much about teaching and the gospel, my sweet companion, sister king, is soo patient with me! When we do companionship practice teaching i always ask why we need to do this or why that is important lol it really helps when you are teaching!!!
I’ve learned that I know the gospel is true, but explaining it...a little different haha
I wrote a letter, but i think mail will be slow for a while; the post office is on strike! o yah, when you write letters. don’t forget to put the zip code!! i did get 3 at one time hahah so you never know how long it will take!!!
I really am blessed to be here. I have seen the district grow so fast! there’s an elder here, elder morris, who couldn’t even read out of the portuguese book of mormon when we got here, and now when we read he can read it really well, but he can go line for line and translate it! it really is amazing to see the Lord shaping and molding us!
We had a devotional last night and watched a talk from elder neal a. anderson to the provo mtc and one thing he said I really liked. He was talking to missionaries and said that the Lord will shape your back to be able to bear the burden placed upon it! I know that the Lord is shaping me to withstand the trials and the successes I will have on my mission!
oh! Sunday was my 1st day conducting and we have a brasilera sister get up and share her conversion story and someone to translate. Well I asked my roomie if she would share her story and I would translate....omylanta! it was sooo bad!! We get up and I’m trying to translate, I understood about a half of it haha I couldn’t do it. I’m so glad there’s a brasilera sister there who can speak english too so she helped me out a lot! I still have a lot to go with the language. But it’s coming!
This gospel is true, it is hard, but it’s worth it!! vale a pena!!!
Tell everyone thanks for the prayers and support. I love you all so much. I’m on a mission for you guys!!! I want you to know that. I love you so much
Love sister benedict
