Elder Brock and I before Transfers
Elder Wetzel and I before Transfers too ...
The Elders in our Zone before transfers, yet again. Ha.
I don't believe that its already Monday. That's crazy. First off, about the transfers. Every companionship in our Zone was changed, except ours. Que Alegiria! I'm still here in the good ol' Jaraguá with Elder Nogueira! As for divisions, we, as the zone leaders decide when and with whom to do the divisions, and try to help out the zone the best we can. We wont be doing many divisions for now though, as we need to focus on our area. We found some really great families to work with that have been progressing a lot, and are "ellects". They unfortunately didn't go to church this week, but we have faith that they will next week. It is two couples, Silvio and Simone, and Silvia and Tiago. The latter couple, has two kids as well. This week has been kind of crazy with all sorts of stuff happening, but its all going great. I am loving the mission, and am so grateful for my opportunity to be here. The Lord is always blessing us in our efforts. This week I wanted to make reference to the scripture in Alma 37:35. Truly all the happiness we want lies in keeping the commandments of God. It is the greatest wisdom we can attire is through keeping the commandments of God. This scripture was written for a young man, but truly all of us need to learn now. We cant let these moments slip by, we should always be seeking to keep the commandments that God has given us, and we will be blessed in all things. I love you all, and hope that you all have a great week.
