My Weekly Vila Virginia MIRACLE REPORT

This week we found Guilherme (William in English) and Erien.

Okay, I know I always say this, but this time I mean it, they are the most prepared and elate people I have ever seen on my mission!

We found them on Tuesday, taught the Restoration and it was a great lesson, but then the first lesson is always wonderful -- and then they don't follow through on commitments. We went back on Thursday and he had read until JACOB in the Book of Mormon! I couldn't believe my ears. We began to teach the Plan of Salvation and he had so many incredible questions that we only got half waythrough. We came back the next day and he had written two pages of his impressions and questions from reading the Book of Mormon.

 Erien at first didn't really want to participate, but after accepting lots of love, she too began to follow Guilherme's (her boyfriend) example and now they are both so excited to be baptized on March 25th! The list of little miracles I have already seen just from these two is too long to tell, but I am just feeling too spoiled to have the privilege to teach them.
Working with the other sisters
Sister Gomes is teaching me how to do little things to show my love for people. She goes out of her way to use a little bit of paper/time/money to make people's day. Before I would think, "No, it's a waste," but honestly, she has won the heart of our ward and investigators. I am always hearing little ideas of how to make someone's day, but rarely do I do those little things. BUT NOW I DO!

So basically its raining really hard here and it zapped my computer here in the lan house, so all the things I was writing were lost so I don't have more time. I'm sorry! Next week I'll talk about Felipe, the changes made in our mission, and what it's like to train.
