3.6.17 - Coqueiral, Brazil

Just to inform ya....

Being with Elder Ricart is great. I have only had good companions lately! SUPER GOOD! I have learned a lot with him! We have been working hard especially this last week. This photo is of some baptisms we were able to perform! I am so happy to play my part in this GRAND PLAN of our Heavenly Father. I know that HE really wants these people to be baptized. The thing is.....being baptized is not easy!! The enemy (SATAN) is crazily trying his hardest to make us sad and upset or he leads us down wrong paths.... After lots and lots of changing and much effort to fend off the adversary, Kimberrli, Nanni, and Samara were baptized!

I know that this is the plan of God. I can honestly say that the enemy does everything he can to make it so that we don't keep our promises with God. He ESPECIALLY does not want people to hear about what us missionaries have to say. He puts up obstacles like influencing our families or friends to anger or opposition to the church. He makes us feel confused about our righteous decisions...but in the end, if we perservere, our sins can be washed clean and we can be in such a state that will lead us to reside with our Father in Heaven.

This is my job.....take the message of salvation to everyone....but we cannot choose this for anybody. It is between them and Heavenly Father.....Sadly there would have been another person in this photo in white but it breaks my heart that she denied being baptized and moved without passing her address in anger. The adversary won, but luckily these people made the correct choice!!

I know that Christ lives and he knows each and every one of us personally. I know that through his atoning blood, we can be washed clean and enter into the house of our father. I know that this is his church which holds the power and authority of administering his baptism. This is the right path. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints is literally God´s kingdom here on earth. Don´t hesitate do discover why!!! Not only will you miss out on the blessings in this life on earth, but you will miss the opportunity to really get to know the savior and follow him.......and JUST WHERE DID HE LEAD US TO?

to heaven and back into the presence of our Eternal Father.

Have a great week. Discover more
