June 5: I love my family!

This is what I said this Sunday when I bore my testimony in sacrament meeting. Except in portuguese, of course.

This past week we had a family home evening with two families together. One family was made up of a member less active and a non-member. They have been going to a church for a while, and have been living toegther for 10 years and have 2 kids, they just need to get married! It was so great to talk with them about loving one another and serving each other. 

We met this super chill rapaz and taught him the Restoration. It was cool because if we hadn´t not found his house the first time we probably wouldn´t have found him at home. He was a contact of the Elders and is super prepared to receive the message of the restored gospel!

We visited this couple who were sealed in the temple and everything but afterward left the church because after a huge tragedy that claimed many lives here in Terê nobody went looking for them. They were home teachers and visiting teachers and nobody ever visited them. I think their records didn´t get moved to the other ward after their house was destroyed and they moved. Anyway, we went there to invite them back to church, but I felt inspired to ask the head of the house why he left the church. Then we just listened for a long time.  Afterward we identified what they needed and he seemed really happy. The wife too opened up the next time we saw her. I am really excited to work with this family!
