we are finding many great men who are leading their families

29 Mar

Spring here is Fall, So we are in Fall now which is nice, I felt like we have been blessed lately, it hasn’t been quite as hot, it’s been in the 80s recently, I think I have been able to stop sweating so much also, which is great, I remember at the beginning of my mission I was literally dripping sweat all day every day.

I don’t actually have to bad of a farmers tan, though my arms are much darker than my belly, it’s a gradual transition, but you will be able to see even a tie tan line.

Yes I heard about Eve I’m excited for her, we write each week, I can tell she´ll do great.

I am super excited for David and Camden too, it is true that every super hero needs a side kick.

I think I only miss the cold and the water for now, it would be nice to jump in a pool about now haha

I keep a journal but I have negligent a little for a couple months but I was writing every day, we have a lot less time as Zone Leader to write, but I’ll whip myself back into shape for that.

This week was excellent, we had so much fun, we taught so many great people, a lot of new people visited the church this week, and it seems we are finding many great men who are leading their families, that a nice change, the lord really is preparing this area to open a branch, the stake wants to open a branch, and just skip the step of group, so they will get ready to open the branch this year, and the lord is preparing the leaders.

I will have many stories to share that even if I give a thousand talks I won’t use them all up.

I hope you all stay warm and happy, I’m so grateful for my family, it’s the best.

I love you all so much, Com Amor, Elder Inman

We have had a lot of other miracles also this week

22 Mar

It sounds like you had a great times out for women, that is very cool. And I can see that that is true (about being happy). I did stay this transfer luckily, and my comp is also the same, I am very happy we are having so much success together. We are being blessed with so many great people to teach, many families, a new family visited the church this week and they said they will be returning and we had two others that would be visiting for the first time but one got very sick and another could go because his brother took his car and didn’t return it on time he kept it until after church had ended and the man’s cell phone was in his car so we couldn’t even talk to him. Even though this happened he is very very excited to visit the church, he is one of the most elect people I have seen on my mission, we barely taught him about the restoration and already on the second visit when his brother entered he told his brother to hear our messages because we are from Christ’s church, his brother replied ´´yeh all churches are good´´ then he responded back, but you don’t understand this is the church that Christ himself founded and brought back to the Earth because it was lost when the apostles died. he also visited his mom with us and he explained the restoration and taught about the book of Mormon with many details that we had never taught him, when we gave him the Book of Mormon he basically hugged it and said that he would read from it every day, even if it is just for a couple minutes, and that his daughters will read too. This man is awesome, he will be a great leader in the church one day. We have had a lot of other miracles also this week. Our recent converts are teaching people with us and that are very strong, and we should have many baptisms in these following weeks.

I am so glad to see Enoch is doing so well and hope he can wake up quicker haha

it’s incredible to see the faith of the people

15 Mar

Well the number of people going to church from this city is always growing, and it’s incredible to see the faith of the people that are willing to go to another city to visit a church they had never known before when there are so many other churchs right next to them. This week we had one more baptism and we hope to have baptisms each week here, I’m not sure if I’ll stay here but I sure would be happy if I did, I think it’s the best area in the mission now, funny, it was one of the worst when I arrived. We have so many people that are so great and that have so much desire to find the truth, we have a few families that I can see as the future bishops and leaders of the church here, but unfortunately it will be hard to open a new branch because they are wanting to stop expanding and start strengthening what we have in this area, but I still have hope they will open a branch here soon. I have had such a great week we had very good numbers this week, and we are seeing the results of our hard work.

I will have a lot of stories to tell after the mission because I just don’t have the time to tell them here, but I have some good ones from this week. I also got a letter from one of my recent convert families, it was awesome, it said that they are all great, that she is now teaching seminary and gospel principals, that her mom is in a calling in the library and her aunt is in a calling in public relations and is planning a service project, and that her cousin got the priesthood and is passing the sacrament, it amazes me how well established they already are, it was a great treat to read about that.

Also, the president showed us a bunch of new church material that is prepared to help the missionaries get back in to life and success really quick, and he said that it isn’t necessary to think about our plans for after the mission until the day we get on the plane. I will think and pray about Utah though.

I love you all so much and hope you have a great week.

I also loved the pics

Well it looks like you have already seen the pictures from my week, haha it was a great week, I love how great the work is here. We hope to have baptisms each week now,

I love the mission, and it goes by faster and faster, I am getting better and better though, I haven’t lost any steam here, I will go hard to the end. We are having a lot of success. I can’t wait to see a branch open here.

I hope that all goes well and that it isn’t to difficult to say bye to your Sister, I know sometimes members cry when a good missionary leaves. Also I will worry about the whole writing people thing when I get back, I couldn’t possibly be the one to start writing someone.

I hope that things continue to go well there I will pray for you all, and I am happy to hear about eves success too.

i hope you have a great week.

One of the strange fruits in Brazil…mar20153

This week was awesome, although the other Elder was sent to another area already.

We had 13 at church this week and we should have a few baptisms this week.

I have found that each week we are having more and more success and time is flying more and more quickly.

We have worked a lot more with the members this week and we are doing a few activities in their houses, we also were invited to the birthday party of one of our investigators and I gave her a dollar bill, that a good present here in Brazil, and it was the only dollar bill I had.

It may be cold there but it is very hot here, though we did get some pretty good rain storms that was nice to cool off.

I love the mission and can’t wait to tell you all all the fun stories.

Have a great week

We are now in a threesome, the president was praying and he felt like this elder can learn something important with us to change his mission.mar20152

We are having such a great time here, we had 14 people visit the church this week and many more that wanted to but couldn’t because of it being the week of Carnaval.

By the way, Carnaval is from Satan.

The families are progressing well for the marriage and the baptism, I will return for when they get sealed in the temple. The man could be a future bishop, or stake president with this type of family, they are great.

I am having such a great time and I will pray that you all have a great week.
