Meet the newest Fortaleza, Brazil ZONE LEADER
Hello every man, woman, child, and dog. Tranfers have come, and I will now be serving as Zone Leader with Elder Perressute. I know Elder Perressute fairly well, and I´m super excited to work with him. I will be serving in the Tancredo Neves ward, which is actually in the same Stake as Dias Macêdo, my current ward. Basically you just cross this one street and you can get to my new ward. It´s awesome.
This week we had a special visit from Elder Christofferson. He spoke a whole lot on how important it is to read and study the Book of Mormon. He gave us the promise that if we gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon, and if we are able to help others grow the same testimony of it´s truthfulness, then we will never go astray from the path of Christ. As I have made it a goal to always study the Book of Mormon in my personal studies here on the mission, I can certainly testify that what Elder Christofferson said is true. As my testimony of the Book of Mormon has grown and flourished here, I know how much it has affected my personal conversion. Also, I have seen when others began to plant this same testimony in their hearts, and I know how much it means to them. The Book of Mormon is true, and I know it. Many of my converts know it, and I am certain that that knowledge will bring them eternal happiness. I know that anyone can recieve these blessings when they are established upon the principles of righteousness that the Saviour taught. I know that Elder Christofferson is an Apostle called of God.
This week was so amazing here in Dias Macedo, and I´m pretty torn to be leaving this amazing ward. We have found two other families that have shown so much desire to get married and be baptized. Although I won´t be here to share in such wonderful moments with these wonderful couples, I know that I will be able to see them again, whether in this life or the next.
Well, that was my magical week.
