Well hello everyone once again, welcome to the telling of an amazing week with Elder Hyer!
The week started off strong with some of the coolest investigators in the world.
First of all we have Kevin,
We started teaching Kevin this week and man talk about a perfect investigator. The cool thing about the Church of Jesus Christ is that we have answers to a lot of questions. Where did we come from? Why are we here on the earth? Where will we go after this life? And just about any other question one has about the Gospel. Well Kevin had all of the questions and is just an honest seeker of the truth. He is reading the Book of Mormon, accepting our invites to read, pray, and he is loving it! I´ll keep you updated on him as we teach him a bit more.
I´ve talked a lot about Elias, we have had him as an on and off investigator since I arrived here. He has struggled a lot. But, where we are right now in his progress is better than I've ever seen. He told us the other day after we shared with him the plan of salvation, that the lessons just get better and better every time we teach. So he is great, preparing for baptism.
We also have Larielly who is just the coolest. She has been reading the Book of Mormon, believes this church to be true, and just wants to be baptized and essentially start over. Teaching her made me realize that we literally do nothing as missionaries, we give people the opportunity to find the truth on their own, and the spirit testifies, and this is just so incredibly evident in Larielly. The work that we have a chance to be a part of as missionaries is wonderful.
Anyways as you all know (but no one in Brazil cares about) this week was Thanksgiving!! Sooo HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Unfortunately we were unable to eat a turkey this year as it is fairly expensive, but we were able to eat cow tail which is actually really really good. The quality of the regular food here in Brazil continues to amaze me.
Well thats about it, it rained a little more, and I got an amazing Christmas package from home (thanks mom and dad, mostly mom) so that was way cool.
Love you guys, until next week!!
