this week was awesome! the first thing i wanna mention is our new recent convert Rebeca! her baptism yesterday was super spiritual and awesome, we got to sing I am a Child of God in 3 different languages it was so so sweet. She has been so prepared to be baptised and changed her life so much but she keeps having things come up! When she got home from church yesterday after the baptism she was kicked out of her home and is living with some members for the moment so please keep her in your prayers!! She is already asking to go out and visit people with us and talking about serving a mission.

We had an awesome mission tour this week from President Costa of the 70 and he/his wife gave such awesome training and talks. It was all in portuguese but i really was able to understand a lot of it. My language is getting better, I've started to get complimented by investigators and ward members. His wifes talk was my favorite part i think. She talked about the power of the priesthood and how everyone has a different role and benefits so much from the priesthood. WE need to be worthy and prepared to use our priesthood at any moment to better the lives of those around us and fufill the will of our Heavenly Father. The priesthood really is the power to allow us to return to heaven thru our saving ordinances. She and elder costa also talked about having more charity in our work and the importance of developing lots of love for everyone.
Love thy neighbor as thyself!! i love you guys so much
