Record breaking attendance!

November 25, 2013

This week was good. we set a goal to have a record breaking attendance at church. mainly because the members here have been waiting four years for their chapel and it was in jeopardy. like usually we have 100 people at church, which is really just a big house remodeled into a church. anyway if we didn't bring up our numbers the members would have to wait another four years. anyway lots and lots of prayers, lots of walking, lots of talking and testifying. we had 186 people at church yesterday. 18 investigators! and it was packed! foi ótimo! umm we sometimes have days where everything falls through and we end up walking a lot and not teaching a lot. e aì, this happened one day so we sat on the curb and we prayed. this isn´t the first time we´ve done this and it sure wont be the last. but we prayed hard, and decided to start our day from the beginning, revisit all the people that weren't home. we had an awesome day after that prayer we taught a lot of people the first vision and the Spirit was just awesome como sempre. 
I've been reading more and more conference talks lately... still don’t have october but eventually I will. And just figuring out how God works and what he wants us to do. Anyway here are a few things I’ve learned. He really does have our best interest in mind. He wants us to be happy in this life and the life to come. He has given us a map and a guide to show us how to do that. He sent his son to show us how to return to his presence and he has given us commandments for our safety and when we obey with exactness we are blessed. But we are never blessed in the way we want and its never according to our timing. When we really stop to count all the little blessings in our lives, we have so much to be grateful for.
Until next time :) 
Lots of love and lots of prayers de me:)

love sister Leonard
