I am glad that up there in the states it is nice and toasty. This last week has been really cold with 40-50 degrees F, the Brazilian winter has come a lot sooner than we all expected.

Here in Avaré we are really seeing our blessings, this last week it has been filled with teaching and finding as we build up our teaching pool, and where we are seeing who can be baptized here in the next few weeks and how we can help them find the answer and feel of the truthfulness of the restored gospel. Dad we too had the same Revelation of rescuing the people that have become inactive in the church and the gospel. We have been working with and teaching these great people helping their struggling testimony so that they can receive the blessings. we are really working with Paulo and his wife Alcione who haven't been to Church in years, she went to church out of the blue and has been making great progress, but her husband has been feeling discourage, but with our help and the help of the Lord and the spirit they will be sealed in the temple here in a little bit.

In the past my faith really has been tested to really have the success that we are striving to active, my favorite Scripture has really helped me always trust in the Lord "I will go and do what the Lord hath commanded for I know that the Lord giveth no amendment unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them, to accomplish All things he hath commanded them." 1 Nephi 3:7. This work is real and together we will build of the kingdom of the Lord.

Tchau, Tchau
