Another chill week here in Patos!!
These holiday weeks are good and bad for missionaries. Good because everyone is in the mindset of giving/being greatful/thinking of Jesus. The bad part is everyone is traveling to their freaking "sitios" (farms/ranches). So its hard to get people to church. But with the new year, new goals (such as going to church, scripture study goals, member activity, etc.) have been emphasised.
So you know here in the northeastern part of Brazil, its really hot and dry and there isn´t a lot of rain. This week we had a few rainstorms. It was a Christmas/New Years miracle.
So the mattresses that we were sleeping on were rather old. With a few calls and lots of prayers, we got new ones! So you can sleep peacefully mom :) another great christmas present!!
Scripture of the Week: Alma 5:12 Your focus, base, everything should be Christ!
Anderson taught that your spiritual base consists of 4 basic things:
2) Scipture Study
3) Church attendance/activity
