This week has went very well for us!! This week we were able to teach a lot of people. And were able to get four of them to go to church. Hopefully they will be baptized soon.
I am really liking it here in Radial, Camaçari. This week it rained a little bit...but the rain doesn't help too much with the heat. Right after the rain goes away, the sun comes back out and heats everything right back up.
Our area here is very big and we walk a lot. We are teaching a guy right now that likes the church a lot and he has already stopped smoking. Now he just has to stop drinking coffee so hopefully we can help him stop so he can be baptized.
Well, that's about it for the week. Hope all is going well with you guys. Sure am grateful to be here in Brazil serving my mission and our Savior and for the gospel in our lives.
Thanks for all, talk to you guys later!
Love, Èlder Nickerson
"The invitation to repent is rarely a voice of chastisement but rather a loving appeal to turn around and to 're-turn' toward God. It is the beckoning of a loving Father and His Only Begotten Son to be more than we are, to reach up to a higher way of life, to change, and to feel the happiness of keeping the commandments. Being disciples of Christ, we rejoice in the blessing of repenting and the joy of being forgiven. They become part of us, shaping the way we think and feel."—Neil L. Andersen
