Life in the Rose Garden

Here in Jardim das Rosas its all well. I am getting used to all the new stuff, the new people, the area, the ward, and it is always good to change. Here is a great area, that has lots of potential for baptisms and growth. We all know that The Lord has a plan for us and wants us to be happy, and we can be happy in all situations that we find ourselves.

Here with Elder Aguiar I will have another chance to "matar" or be the last comp of someone. He is a little less trunky then my other companion. So we will work hard.

Here in the ward they Baptized a guy named Bruno. He is awesome, he is 19 and loves the church. He was baptized in 2 weeks time, and now visits the people with us almost everyday. He is truly converted to the Lord and wants the others to know what he knows. He has a young and powerful testimony. My question for you all, do we have the same desire to share the gospel. 

Bruno and Elder Aguiar
This is Bruno, he was a crazy dude, he drank, used drugs, and graffitied the walls this art is curtisy of him, so we took a pic to remember the change that can come over a person. 

This week was a week to know the area, and we had a lot of rain- it rained almost every day this week, I had to buy a new umbrella, and already broke again,,,,, got to love the rain and wind :) 

In my study this week I read a verse that I loved.
"for the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh" 
Lucas 6:45

We need to be careful what our hearts are desiring, because we will speak what we really desire. Take care it your words and actions, God will help you keep pure. 

I love you all, and wish you all a Good 2016:)
