Week 2 in the Rosas

Well this week was a stelar one. We had great chances to do many things.

On Tuesday we had mission counsel with all the LZ, Presidente showed us the things that he wants the mission to learn, and why we need to lead by example. This week me and Aguiar really focused on being an example for our zone. We were determined and talked with tons of people in the street. We worked hard to help the people that we are teaching feel the spirit and come to church with us. We used the members that we have and were able to see the results of our work. We had many people that came to church. 

One of these people is a girl named Jenifer. She is 13 and a friend of a member. She was very closed at the start, and by the end of the meetings she was smiling and talking with everyone. She was able to feel the spirit and opened up. We are helping her and her family but only she came to church. Her baptismal date is coming up, we will work with her so that she can have more and more confidence about her baptism and that she can help her family also come to church. 

We also are teaching Bruno's parents who are awesome people. We are helping them stop drinking beer and coffee. Most people drink coffee here, and also normally drink a few cans on the weekend. We are helping them realize the importance of following the commandments of God. They came to church and loved it. We will work hard this week so that they can overcome the addictions that they have.

Here in our area life is good. Life as a ZL is different then a DL. We have to have more responsibility, and have to take care of all the missionaries. We follow the work of the other elders so they can work well, and help the people come unto Christ. 

We have an incredible area. The people are so friendly, it is a humble area. There are so many people that are willing to talk to us. It just comes to our desire to serve God. If we have the desire to help people, God will help us serve with great force. I know that God loves us, he wants us to be happy, he wants us to be successful. 

Look for spiritual moments every day, and God will help you in your life. Go to the Temple, Read the scriptures, love everyone. Everyone fights a battle, the least we can do is fight with them and not against them. 
I love you all,
