Well, thanx for the advice Dad, after this week I REALLY need to thank Heavenly Father, and thank you so much for the scripture 3 nefi 20, the last verse was made this week, I am pretty sure you guys would not believe my last week even if I told you, but since I know Dad loves telling and hearing missionary stories I will try and sum it all up. But sufficeth me to say, Heavenly Father LOVES ME!! And he always keeps his promises, the last verse that my Heavenly Father gave to me was this one, Verily, verily, I say unto you, all these things shall surely come, even as the Father hath commanded me. Then shall this covenant which the Father hath covenanted with his people be fulfilled; and then shall aJerusalem be inhabited again with my people, and it shall be the land of their inheritance.
I wish that I could tell you this story and you guys could feel the way I felt, the overwhelming love that I felt for Heavenly Father, and His people, I wish I could have filmed my last week, it was the best of my whole mission, I finally understand why I had to pass through all of this, Heavenly Father was planning a surprise for the end of my mission, and the sacrifice was necessary to appreciate all of it. I can´t believe that I ever doubted!!! Heavenly Father had been planning this week for forever!!! This week was a week of miracles!
Teusday: We discovered that the wedding of Marcio and Clauderí was moved to my last week, so I would be able to see their baptism!!! I taught them for my last 2 months!!
Teusday night: I received a call from President that I had a "special assignment", a missionary would be sent home early and I would need to take his place in the area...
The place was Rio Largo!!!!!!!!! He also told me that I could plan with Elder Bonini to still go to my baptism in Farol, my current area.
I imediatidadely called Cristiano, and said "The High-King is coming back" I explained to him that I would be on a special assignment for my last week and would stay until sunday, he told everyone for me!!!
Wednesday: I arrived in Rio Largo with my new companion, Elder Clark, he was happy to see me, and so were his leaders, E. Sodré and E. Garozzi, they challenged me to baptize my last week in Rio Largo, and I accepted but asked for their prayers. Eliene called me and told me that she wanted me to baptize her daughter Inglyde, her family loves me, but Eliene´s mom does NOT like the idea of Inglyde being baptized, Eliene was worried, but since I was coming it would be really important to her that I baptized her daughter, and so we united the neighborhood to help us!
Thursday: I received the news from Artur, one of my "young warriors" that there were some people in his extended family that were investigating the church and he wanted me to teach them. We taught his cousin, Duanne, she had heard of me and wanted to hear what I had to say. We taught her in a member´s house with a bunch of my recent converts which had been walking with me that day, she decided that Jesus Christ is what is most important to her and more than to "Say" that she loves Him, she wanted to SHOW Him her love, the spirit was SUPER STRONG.
Friday: The next day Elder Mark came to do interviews, when we went to do the interview we encountered Artur´s sister who explained to me that she had been frequenting church with Duanne and that she also wanted to hear what we had to say, we taught her and did her interview on the same day.
Saturday: All of the members and my recent converts came to the baptism, it was a little piece of Heaven, Duanne had some friends who she invited to her baptism, and we invited them to church the next day.
Sunday: The week was awesome, and I was happy to stay my last week in Narnia and spend all day with the people I love. JR, Eliene, Rodrigo, Ándreia, Cristiano, Fabio, Dani, Tinha, Jhonny, etc. My last sunday I was given time by the president of the branch to bear a "LAST TESTIMONY" Sufficeth me to say, It was a Narnia moment. After church Duanne´s friends came with us to take pictures, they were very emotioned by everything they had seen and also wanted to be baptized in the future. After church I ate lunch with the first complete family I baptized in Rio Largo and then I went to one of my magic places, JR´s streat, I sat with the people I baptized and we just joked around and celebrated at the week´s victory against the adversary, we listened to The Call, it was sunday but we have decided that The Call is a "Celestial Song" so we can listen to it on sunday. One of my recent converts said "Well, the first time we did the first film, you came back to win the battle again, I guess we will have to wait for "The dawn treddor" for you to come back" we all laughed. Then at sunset I got on the bus to go to my area and I waved until I couldn´t see them anymore, but "´ll come back when He calls me, no need to say goodbye" When I arrived in my area we had a miracle, a friend of the family that would be baptized who we had already been teaching decided to be baptized, we were shocked, but happy. With her baptism it fulfilled the goal I had made at the beginning of my mission, and needless to say Heavenly Father has a better imagination than me, and His last week for me was way better than what I could have imagined. I love you all, my beloved family, Thanx for making me a dreamer, an imaginer, and a missionary, I can´t imagine a better family to prepare me for this experience. ahh I will leave Narnia, but I am leaving the way He wants me to leave, thanx for trusting me and letting me stay until e wanted me to go, I love you all!!!!
p.s. My feet are feeling better, the doctor told me that my feet were a result of walking a lot, whew*
I have received my moments here, how you guys want to receive me is up to you, I will just be happy to see you guys!!
