This week has passed by really fast!! First off, last week after we got done emailing, we went to the beach here! It was really cool. The sand was almost white.
This week we also worked a lot with the less active members here, and on Sunday, we had 2 less active members come to church. They haven't been to church for the whole time that my companion and I have been here. It was really neat to see them walking in the doors of the church again.
Something that I'm starting to realize is how strong of influence the Holy Ghost can have on our lives and lives of others. I'm so grateful to have this gift and Spirit in our lives.
We also helped a lot with the English school and are helping people here learn English. This week here Brasil has another big party called the São João. It will last a couple days and at night time they are going to start putting big stacks of wood in front of their houses and lighting the wood on fire. It's part of the tradition I guess. I am excited to see what it is all about.
We also did a split this week and this family that we taught had an iguana, it was cool!!
Well, that's about it for the week. Hope everybody had a good week. Talk to you guys later.
Haha!! One more thing, we found this giant spider on our walls this week!!
The Holy Ghost works in perfect unity with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, fulfilling several roles to help us live righteously and receive the blessings of the gospel.
He “witnesses of the Father and the Son” (2 Nephi 31:18) and reveals and teaches “the truth of all things” (Moroni 10:5). We can receive a sure testimony of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ only by the power of the Holy Ghost. His communication to our spirit carries far more certainty than any communication we can receive through our natural senses.
As we strive to stay on the path that leads to eternal life, the Holy Ghost can guide us in our decisions and protect us from physical and spiritual danger.
Through Him, we can receive gifts of the Spirit for our benefit and for the benefit of those we love and serve (see D&C 46:9-11).
