June 19: The week members gave us cake and presented us to their neighbors

This week had lots of highs and lows. We had splits in Petropolis, I learned so much. One thing Sister Andrade always talks about is how life is short, and so we need to follow Jesus Christ fast. Her and her family are members faz 2 years now and both her and her sister are serving missions. She is such a good example for all of us!

We met some really awesome people this week. It was so good to be able to visit people interested in learning more with members. Yesterday on Sunday we met/taught two different families! 

Before sacrament meeting we were out in front of the church inviting people to enter. We eneded up talking to this one young man who was very interested in learning more. He was surprised to see us, two young people from different countries, inviting people inside, because he´d heard other people say not very nice things about our church, that it is a cult. 

I really liked what one recent-convert said to us in Petropolis. "My life is very very blessed because of the Gospel. Very. People say that this religion is false, but I don´t give an ear to them. But let me say something... there are lots of things to study and learn in this church!" 

But I know that as we study and pray, ponder and ask God for understand, we can come to comprehend God´s plan for us, and the atonement of Jesus Christ.
