50 And I said unto them: If God had commanded me to do all things I could do them. If he should command me that I should say unto this water, be thou earth, it should be earth; and if I should say it, it would be done.
51 And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of men, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?
-1 Nephi 17: 50-51

My Last Area

I`m back in Riviera!!! Wooo! And even crazier, my new companion has 3 weeks now on the mission!! It's so great to be back here! Sadly, it's not Embu Guacu, but I still am super excited.  This area is so great, and the ward is awesome, too! My companion is really cool! He is the only member in his familia (that's active) and he really is learning well!  He has a desire to talk to those around him and preach this gospel, but he's a bit shy. So I get to be an instrument in helping him be less shy! :D

Well, I got here and this area didn't have anything!  No one was marked for baptism and no families to teach yet.  So we went crazy looking for new people to teach and, well, we're finding FAMILIES!! What we´ve started doing is ask for references LIKE CRAZY!! And Heavenly Father is helping!  Until now I've only been finding families and not just individuals! It's so great.

We sadly got so wrapped up in finding people to teach that we hadn´t really focused on getting people to church! URG!  Really dumb mistake... but it's ok.  We're gonna get better this week.

It's really crazy that basically I finish his training, then I'm home! But really I don't feel any trunkiness.  I think that's why I was given someone to train, so that I don´t get trunky. Haha I don't know, but I'm super excited for the future!  I made a plan with Hheavenly Father, and I know that as I do my part, He will do His.  I will find and baptize these families!!

I love y'all! Keep up the great missionary work!

Ps. There's a great book I was given permission to read called "The Power of a Member Missionary" that's really good and would be excellent help!
