October 22, 2018 -- Morada dos Passaroes

[Today is transfer day, and Sam is staying in the same area with the same companion for his last transfer.]

monday was a good p day we had a family night at a members home! 

tuesday was a normal day we had some cool lessons but the best part was to finish off the night! we were walking to an appointment suuuuper far away and it was already late so it looked like we were gonna get home at like 11. then some member was passing by and gave us a ride to the home! we were able to have a super good lesson with Patricia Antonio Lucas and Lane. they are a part member less active family that we have started teaching. we were able to read the book or mormon with them and we felt such a good spirit reading about the Saviors visit to the americas. Lucas (son) undertood that he needed to get baptized and his parents felt the need to take him to church! sunday they were all there and loved the meetings! apparently lucas was reminding his dad all week about the visit to church they had marked! it was so special. we were also able to get home before too late haha. 

wednesday and thursday we had our district meeting/weekly planning and spent the days in a differnt part of our area trying to find some less actives and new investigators. it was fun but not as fruitful as we had hoped. we were able to meet with Luceni about her smoking problem but she is having a lot of trouble stopping and she also has slowed down on her reading. its just too bad!

friday and saturday we had sucess in follwing up with some investigators and members to get ready for sunday. we were able to see the fruits sunday when we had some new faces in church and some faces that hadnt been there in awhile. Also to my surprise Karen and fam from Bom Jesus da Lapa has moved to conquista and lives very close to the chapel so we can start teaching them again. They have been going to church for about a year now but still havent taken the step of baptism, but how many times does an old investigator move into an area where a missionary that taught them is serving? No such thing as coincidence and I think the cards are starting to turn in our favor! im excited to get to visit them again. 

in church we talked a lot about mosiah 3:19 and humbling ourselves! humility is so important and helps each one of us grow closer to the Lord. WE must learn to submit to the Lords will, not so he can be happy but so that we can be happy. He does everything for our benefit!!
