Opposition in All Things

and by opposition i mean really there was only one bad thing this week. and by one bad thing i mean that i had the worst cold in the history of colds! It almost completely knocked me out. I got it on wednesday and today is the first day I've felt better! It's crazy! It probably wouldn't have lasted so long except we had such a good week lined up, I couldn't miss anything so we just kept going! 

We witnessed like 800 miracles this week, but I don't have time (or motivation) to put them all in here! So I'll just tell a few.

1. WE GOT SOMEONE TO COMMIT TO BAPTISM ON THE FIRST LESSON. His name is Alfredo (remember the one who thought i was a nun hahaha) (turns out a lot of people have thought we are nuns so thats cool) but yeah we had a lesson with him and the spirit was SO STRONG and at the end we asked him if he would be baptised on April 23 and he said YES! and he came to church on sunday and told everyone he is coming back! We're so excited we're teaching him again tonight.

2. We had 10 nonmembers at church on sunday! That alone is a HUGE miracle. The spirit was so strong because of the Easter program and almost everyone who was there kept saying they want to come back! it was amazing!

3. Daniel. haha he's so great. he's from Brazil and we met him at a bus stop and
without us even asking, he just said, "I want to know more about your church on your name tag!" He came to church and said that this is the first time he's felt like he's home since leaving Brazil. We're teaching him for the first time this week, and will hopefully set a date for him too!

Okay so those are three cool miracles that the Lord has worked in our lives. Sister Graham and I are doing great. We eat tons and tons because all the singles LOVE to feed us. We get to pet lots of dogs on the street which ROCKS and then usually we get to contact their owners! 

Yesterday we had TWO easter dinners which was way cool but also I didn't think i could eat that much! unfortunately because i was sick and kinda gross looking most of the week, the easter sunday picture is the only one we have for you guys this week! oh well. IF ANYONE WANTs a postcard email me your address because i bought some cute ones and i want to send them out to everyone (:

The church is so true guys. Conference is coming up, which I'm SO excited for. AND ALL OF YOU SHOULD BE EXCITED TOO because we literally get to hear what The Lord has for us to hear. Christ loves us, and he's our best friend. It doesn't matter what you're going through in life, he's waking through it with you, and he knows what you're feeling because HE feels it too. And because he's felt what you're feeling and because he's suffered for our sins, he can plead with our Heavenly Father for our forgiveness and that is the most amazing thing in the whole world! I love this gospel so much, and I'm so excited for conference and I love all of you!
