Going Great

Hey guys, hows it going? Here we are all smiles and happiness, yes in part because of the talk I had with the family and also for being a missionary. 

This week was a normal week, we worked hard to find new investigators and we were rewarded by God with something incredible.

It was on Saturday and we were running out of our plans, we just had one more family that is inactive that we were going to visit. When we got there, there were two young guys talking in front. When we got there, the family that we were going to teach called the two guys as well. We thought nothing of it. When we got to the house we chatted with everyone, and one of the boys said, "Where are you guys from?" then we got talking about how we are from the US, and they were amazed.... haha they are both 16. We then started talking about how we are missionaries and we showed them a video "Thanks to Him" and they liked it. One of the boys expressed his concern about his faith. He said somethings don’t make sense, and he doesn’t know if God exists. We were able to explain to him and his friend very simply about the way God works, they were touched and amazed with how everything made sense. They said that when we saw them on the street talking they were talking about if God really exists. We know that God does nothing by coincidence. They were very intrigued, and we will return to visit them on Wednesday. They promised us they would come to church with us. We will follow up with them so that they can feel of the spirit to guide them about their lives journey. 
I hope that we all can remember how we know that God exists. He acts in our lives and is taking good care of us. It just takes our courage to go unto him, and partake of the blessings.

I love you all. :) 

Elder Iverson

Us with a new convert, Edie Nelson.  We got hims some church clothes, now we are working on a white shirt :)

Elder Galdino from No. Brazil.  He is a good missionary.  We were on splits, so of course we had to get pizza.

The Elder Cookie Factory.  It is messy, but we are getting quite good.  We made cookies for all the women in our ward for Mother’s Day.  They loved it!  And mom, if you ever want to open a bakery in Brazil you’d do well.  They all love your recipe and all want a copy.
