One more Baptism

OK well 1 more baptism this week!!!! her name is Maria and shes our neighbor. I sent a missiontie out on Monday all bout it, so I wont go into much detail here. But it was a very good baptism! I didn't get any pictures on my camera because the guy didn't push the button down on my camera so I only have one pic that I took. Anyway my comp got a pic so ill send it to you when I get it.  This week has been good tho, we should have more baptisms this week. (we actually have 3 that should be baptized) and we also  have about  3 more who are ready for there baptism next week too, so all we got to do is to get them to church this week!!. yesterday the Jehovah witness stopped us, he said if we didn't show up this Friday he would know were scared and tell everyone how bad our church is. So this Friday we will have one last meeting with the Jehovah witnesses. (or however you spell it) except we have done a little studying this time and marked our scriptures. There's a book that some missionaries have and it teaches how to bible bash... now I know its not a good thing to do but we memorized a few things in case they decide to stop our message and pull the bibles out again but dad like you said the devils presents is so strong and I hate it, it really bothered me when we were there. After we left I had to read the Book of Mormon for a few minutes just to feel better! It seriously is just like you said anyway this week has been good I'm outta time now so I better go. I will respond to everyone in missionties! The church is true! I love you all, play safe and work hard in school Jake and JC! even though its not fun to do its worth it in the end! There are just so many un-educated people here! It's really crazy! Well play safe and read the Book Of Mormon everyday!! Com Amor -Josh

Book of Mormon

Anyways this week while I was reading out of the book of Mormon it really hit me how important the BOM is. One morning after finishing reading from it I was just sitting and thinking about what I just read and how to apply it. That’s when I realized that it is such a great book when you use it right. It’s awesome when you read it but when you apply it to your daily life. That’s when it becomes AMAZING! I started thinking how much better my day goes when I read from the BOM. And then I remembered the days where I was struggling the most or having trouble with the work, those were the days I didn’t read from the BOM. and how it brings the spirit. I just want to let you guys know that I know the Book of Mormon is true. I have a testimony of it and my testimony grows every day when i read out of it. It’s such a amazing book that everyone needs to read for themselves


OK so the week has been awesome! one more baptism in between confrence session!!!! haha it was very good and ´´jonas´´ was baptised. my comp did the baptism and i was able to enjoy just watching. the spirit was so strong!! anyways i didnt change areas and i was able to stay with my comp. whitch im very gald!  Confrenece was awesome and very good. i think it was the first time actually watching the whole thing... ooops. hahaha but elder scotts talked killed me the most. and it was my fav out of them all. i cheered out loud when the guy hooked the fish on his fly-pole. (it was only me and my comp in the room) i could just picture and feel the fish as if i was the one in the video. anyways it made me a little home sick for fishing... it was like giving a baby his bottle for 30 seconds then taking it away and not letting him have it to finish eatting. but in my case for 2 years! lol but i loved it. i do have about 3 talks that i like.(Pres. Uchtdorf- slowing down.) he used a plane for an example but it was really good. talking about slowing down and focusing on the important things like family and the gosple.

Your Missionary Arrives at Brazil MTC

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Dear Parents,

We are happy to send the good news that your missionary has arrived safely at the Brazil MTC.  What a great joy and privilege it is to greet each missionary as they come through the front door of the MTC for the first time. We promise to take good care of your missionary.
They now have companions and are settled into their rooms.  They are assigned to a district with capable and caring instructors for language and lesson study.  The branch presidents and their wives, will soon give them a second greeting.  These couples are rewarded in their callings through the love they always develop as they embrace and watch over the missionaries.
The MTC has a full time live-in physician to care for their health needs.  He is assisted by his able wife. We are also happy to report that the Cafeteria food is abundant and very good.
Your missionary will be able to e-mail home on Preparation Day after a morning at the Temple.  This will be either Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on individual assignments.
Your very important young person is about to make an eternal difference in the lives of others.  We hope you will be encouraged and comforted by this quote by President Lorenzo Snow: “There is no mortal man that is so much interested in the success of an elder [sister] when he is preaching the gospel as the Lord that sent him to preach to the people who are the Lord’s children.”
Please accept our love,
President Donald L Clark and Sister Zaza Clark
